No AJ Green for the Cincinnati Bengals and quarterback Andy Dalton? No problem. Dalton knew coming into this Week 10 matchup against the high-powered New Orleans Saints offense that he would have to bring his best despite not having his No. 1 wide receiver. In the first quarter, it wasn’t a problem as he found his blazing fast wideout John Ross for the two-yard goal line touchdown.

It’s nearly impossible for any defensive back to run horizontal and trail Ross across the field, so credit the Bengals offensive line for giving Dalton enough time.
He’ll need more throws like this if he wants to keep up with the Saints and MVP-candidate quarterback, Drew Brees.
