WR Dane Sanzenbacher - Cincinnati Bengals
|5-10, 182||Born: 10-13-1988||College: Ohio State||Drafted: ---|
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.
