Week 13: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Andy Dalton threw 24/35 for 233 yards, one TD and one interception against the Texans last week, while taking zero sacks. Two weeks ago he bombed the Saints for 16/22 yielding 220 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for -1 yards. The Bengals have won two straight games and cling to a slender 1/2 game lead in the AFC North entering this contest. During the winning streak, Dalton has relied on three main receivers; A.J. Green (24 targets for 18/248/1 receiving), Mohamed Sanu (13 for 8/71/1), and Jermaine Gresham (nine for 6/46/2) - nobody else has seen more than five targets during that two game span. Obviously, Green is the guy with the most potential going forwards (he stated this week that he finally feels healthy after struggling through a toe injury earlier in the year). The Buccaneers' pass D has not been very good for most of the season, ranking 22nd in the NFL averaging 252.1 net passing yards allowed per game, with 21 passing scores given up over 11 games played, vs. just 8 interceptions (tied for 20th in the NFL) and 23 sacks (tied-18th) generated. Jay Cutler underperformed against Tampa last week with 17/27 for 112 yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown (with three sacks taken for -18 yards), while a struggling Robert Griffin III was limited to 23/32 for 167 net yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown, with six sacks taken for -40 yards two games ago. Tampa's pass D has played solidly in this phase of the game over the past two games, folks. Dalton and company are getting into synch, while the suspect Buccaneers seem to have pulled it together in this phase of the game during recent weeks - on balance, this looks like a neutral matchup with neither squad holding an edge on the other.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs CLE (6 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)

Jermaine Gresham was third in targets behind Green and Sanu, hauling in three of six passes thrown his way. Gresham continued work the short routes, but even his gigantic 6'7" frame was unable to pull down a few of Dalton's wildly inaccurate passes. Gresham was the target on Dalton's first INT, standing helpless as the linebacker jumped a route that it looks like the TE just gave up on. Gresham limped off the field in the third quarter with a knee injury after catching a pass in the middle of the field, but it doesn't seem that the injury was serious.

2014 Week 11 vs NO (3 / 2 / 13 / 2 rec)

Gresham only had 2 catches on the game, but made them both count, as he had 2 TDs. On the first, Dalton hit Gresham in the flat. Gresham tried to extend the ball across the goalline but was clearly a yard short and fumbled the ball. Fortunately for him he was able to recover it in the endzone for a TD. His second TD was a 1 yard TD right on the goalline. Dalton faked the playaction to Hill, Gresham rolled off his block and caught a very easy TD in the endzone.

2014 Week 12 vs HOU (6 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)

Gresham had a big 19 yard catch in the 2nd half, at a point when Andy Dalton and the Bengals were really struggling. That catch helped reignite the offense and led the Bengals to a field goal. Aside from that one catch, however, his other receptions were very short passes, and he wasn't able to make much of an impact in this game.
