Man Of The Match—Bills vs. Bengals

Arguably the Bengals are the number one defense in the NFL right now. Furthermore, we contained the previously unstoppable Bills0 offense, holding them to a mere thirteen points. Rey Maualuga finally looked like everybody’s favourite player. Atkins, Johnson, and Dunlap ran riot. On the offense, A.J. Green ignited the come back with two outrageous deep catches. Gresham carried the team on his large shoulders. Benson ploughed over a hundred yards, Nugent hit the winning field goal. So I know, there are a lot of candidates. But yet, at the same time, there is only one.

 His first win at home. His first true victory at all really in the NFL. Andy Dalton gets my Man of the Match vote not just for the three scoring drives that changed the game but for the expression on his face. Six inept quarters and a half-empty stadium didn’t phase him. Rather, it seemed to spur him on, to challenge him and his young group of receivers. He looked like a fighter to me. More than that, yesterday, he was a winner. Thanks to him and to all of the above, those of you concerned about my MotM coming from the victorious team can be allayed for a week…

 Man Of The Match: Andy Dalton.
