Andy Dalton’s Bengals Rally Back To Beat Seahawks In OT

Andy Dalton leads Cincinnati Bengals to statement win over Seattle Seahawks in overtime. The Bengals trailed by 17 points heading into the fourth quarter.

The Cincinnati Bengals rallied back from a 17-point deficit to an incredible victory against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

The undefeated Bengals went into showdown against the two-time defending NFC champions with a point to prove. And it was quarterback Andy Dalton who played like a man possessed.

Dalton’s fingerprints were all over what matched the second greatest comeback in team history. “’For us to come back against a really, really good team is huge,” Dalton said.

Bengals were trailing 24-7 heading into the fourth quarter. But a collapse down the stretch resulted in a 27-24 overtime loss as Seattle fell to 2-3. Dalton led three consecutive scoring drives (two touchdowns and a field goal) in the fourth quarter as Seattle’s offense went into a total funk, failing to capitalize on a productive day from Thomas Rawls – the rookie running back.

In what is his fifth season, Dalton led the NFL in fourth-quarter passer rating. He ran 13 of 15 for 135 yards during the fourth quarter and during overtime on Sunday.

Many would view Sunday’s loss as a wasted opportunity for the Seahawks, which had a chance to return home with a 3-2 record. But they have serious questions to answer going into a tough matchup against the undefeated Carolina Panthers.

It’s the second week in a row that the Seahawks have failed to hold onto a big lead. Last Monday, against the Detroit Lions, they were one yard away from a potential loss until Kam Chancellor forced a Calvin Johnson fumble.
