Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that Andy Dalton will be returning to his role as starting quarterback when the Bengals play the New York Jets next Sunday.
Rookie Ryan Finley replaced Dalton as the starter in Week 10, but things did not go well for the team. Finley went 12-for-26 with 192 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals’ Week 12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Dalton started the first eight games of 2019 for Cincinnati, throwing for 2,252 yards, nine touchdowns, and eight picks while completing 60.4 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 79.2.
The Bengals have now dropped to 0-11 on the season and are looking to avoid becoming only the second team in NFL history to go 0-16. The first club with this record were the Detroit Lions in 2008.
