Andy Dalton has one game left tonight, but so far, he’s been perfect in October so far.

The Bengals quarterback was named AFC offensive player of the month, after leading his team to a perfect 4-0 record, with a 116.8 passer rating in those games.

He’s thrown for 1,246 yards, 11 touchdowns and just three interceptions over that span, leading to wins over the Patriots, Bills, Lions and Jets.

“I’ve got a lot of great teammates to work with and I’ll take this award on behalf of all of them,” Dalton said. “Everybody deserves a piece of it, including the coaches who are putting everything together for us.”

At the moment, everything’s working perfectly, coming off a five-touchdown against the Jets. We’ll find out tonight if he can continue the streak against the AFC East, when they visit the Dolphins.
