There will not be a matchup of quarterbacks drafted first overall in New Orleans this weekend.

Saints head coach Dennis Allen said that Andy Dalton will make his third straight start in place of Jameis Winston when the Bengals visit the Superdome on Sunday. Winston returned to practice this week, but his back injury will need at least one more week to heal before he’ll have a chance to return to the lineup.

The Saints have gone 1-1 with Dalton the last two weeks. He has gone 36-of-52 for 423 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Dalton spent the first nine years of his career with the Bengals and moved on when they released him in the wake of drafting Joe Burrow first overall in 2020. He has started against them as a member of the Cowboys in 2020 and the Bears in 2021 with Dalton’s team coming out on top each time.

  1. Force Dalton off his spot and he will roll right and throw the ball out of bounds everytime. Watched it for 9 years straight. Still love the red rifle though.

  2. The Saints can contend now. Is it true the team docs keep whacking Jameis in the back each week?

  3. Andy Dalton is a good player and a super nice person. Had the pleasure of meeting him and hanging out when he played for the Bengals. I wish him all the best. He deserves it. Also a far better Quarterback than Winston at this time.
