Research Notes

  • Andy Dalton posted a Total QBR of 3.7 in the Bengals' win over the Browns on Sunday. Dalton has struggled vs AFC North opponents all season with a QBR of just 22.3 this season.

  • -Andy Dalton posted a 3.7 Total QBR Sunday, the lowest Total QBR of his career, and the lowest by any quarterback in a win since Jake Delhomme (2.2) in 2008 against the Raiders (min. 30 action plays). Dalton's play has taken a nose dive in his last three games, after a three-game stretch capped by the highest Total QBR game in his career against the Jets in Week 8 (98.9).-Jason Campbell finished with a 7.3 Total QBR. Dalton and Campbell combined for the lowest Total QBR (11.0) by any quarterbacks facing each other in a game this season.

  • The Bengals scored a franchise-record 31 points in the second quarter of their 41-20 win over the Browns. The specials teams and defense combined to add 41.4 expected points to the Bengals' net margin, the second-greatest combination of any team's defense and special teams units in the last eight seasons. The offense contributed -21.2 expected points, the Bengals' worst in a win in the last eight seasons.

  • Andy Dalton's 93 yards are the fewest by any player in NFL history for a player who attempted at least 25 passes and threw 3 touchdowns in the same game.

  • Andy Dalton posted a Total QBR of 3.7 in the Bengals' win over the Browns on Sunday. It's the 3rd-lowest Total QBR by a starting QB in a win in the 8 seasons for which we have Total QBR data (min. 30 action plays).

  • When Campbell did throw deep, he didn't vary his targets. Of Campbell's nine throws at least 10 yards downfield, seven were thrown to Josh Gordon. Jordan Cameron caught all six targets for 29 yards, with his deepest target coming 6 yards downfield. Cameron entered Sunday with 17 catches on throws at least 10 yards downfield, third most among tight ends.

  • Jason Campbell was 26-of-50 for 174 yards and a pair of interceptions on throws 10 yards or shorter Sunday. No quarterback since the start of 2006 has attempted as many short throws as Campbell's 50 attempts.

  • A.J. Green caught 2-of-4 targets for 7 yards. When Andy Dalton targeted Green, the star wideout caught as many passes as Browns cornerback Joe Haden. Haden finished with two interceptions for 44 yards and a touchdown on passes intended for Green.
