Summary

Much like fellow AFC North quarterback Joe Flacco, 2015 was the first time Dalton missed games in his career. A broken thumb suffered late in the season cost Dalton the final three games during Weeks 14-16 (and the majority of the team's Week 13 game in which he was hurt). Dalton was having what was projecting to be his best season. He threw 25 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions and had already surpassed 3,200 yards (after recording 3,398 all of 2014). Cincinnati's offense is an interesting one to project this season as they have a new offensive coordinator. The team's former quarterbacks coach, Ken Zampese, was promoted when Hue Jackson left to coach Cleveland. Zampese was an assistant under Mike Martz during the "Greatest Show on Turf" days in St. Louis, which likely indicates a focus on the passing game. Jeremy Hill took a step back in his second season in 2015, averaging 1.5 yards per carry fewer than he did in 2014. Combine that with the breakout season of Tyler Eifert, and Cincinnati's personnel also suggests a more pass-centric attack. They did lose receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu, but this offense was able to move the ball via the air through A.J. Green and Eifert, along with Giovani Bernard as well. To replace the departures, Cincinnati acquired Brandon LaFell and drafted Tyler Boyd in the second round out of Pittsburgh. Look for the offensive burden to be placed more on Dalton as it was early in 2015. (May 17)
