In this week's piece for NBC Sports, I go into more detail on Joe Goodberry's insight that Andy Dalton performs much better against teams the Bengals have not faced recently.

The Saints are on pace to break the NFL record for touchdown passes allowed, so out you go, Rob Ryan. UPDATE: Well, change of plans. Apparently, these original reports were incorrect.
