Back from a three-week exile Cheap Trayveon Williams Jersey , Andy Dalton had more of a swagger in practice, as though he was out to prove something.“He had a chip on his shoulder all week,” running back Joe Mixon said.Dalton returned from one of the lowest points of his nine-year career and got a long-awaited victory Sunday for the coach who benched him, throwing a touchdown pass during a 22-6 victory over the New York Jets.The Bengals (1-11) ended the longest losing streak in their history and finally shed their distinction as the NFL’s lone winless team. He got coach Zac Taylor his first win and set two franchise career passing records along the way.The only thing he wouldn’t do is gloat.“This one’s very satisfying, with everything I’ve gone through this year,” Dalton said. “To be the record-breaker today, being the first one after not playing the last three weeks, this one means a lot.”Taylor benched Dalton after the eighth loss, deciding it was time to look toward next year and see if Ryan Finley fit in their plans. With the rookie struggling and the season careening toward 0-16, Taylor reversed course and went back to Dalton, who made the difference in front of the smallest crowd in Paul Brown Stadium’s 20-year history.“He did a great job pumping everybody up,” said Tyler Boyd Trayveon Williams Jersey Womens , who caught the touchdown pass. “He won the game for us.”Carlos Dunlap and Sam Hubbard dunked Taylor with ice water in the final seconds on a cold, gray, December day when he got the inaugural win, courtesy of the quarterback he’d benched. Dalton got a game ball as a thank you.“For him to come back and lead us and get this win, it says a lot about his character,” Taylor said.Dalton also set a couple of franchise passing marks in front of 39,804 fans, the smallest home crowd since the final game of the 1995 season at Cinergy Field.Dalton put Cincinnati ahead to stay with a 17-yard pass to Boyd that made him the Bengals’ career leader in touchdown passes, moving ahead of Ken Anderson with 198. He also passed Anderson for the franchise’s career completion mark. Dalton finished 22 of 37 for 243 yards with no interceptions and one sack.Joe Mixon had a 5-yard touchdown run against the league’s stingiest run defense as the Bengals put up their second-most points this season, trailing a 26-23 loss to Arizona.Nothing good happened for the Jets (4-8), who had their three-game winning streak snapped and became the first team to lose to two teams that were 0-7 or worse in the same season. Miami was 0-7 when it beat the Jets on Nov. 3.The Jets couldn’t extend their high-scoring momentum behind Sam Darnold. An improving Bengals defense limited the Jets to their fewest points since a 33-0 loss to New England on Oct. 21.New York had scored 34 points in each of its last three games, but was self-destructive Sunday. Left tackle Kelvin Beachum was called for holding in the end zone Trayveon Williams Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , resulting in a safety. The Jets were flagged 10 times for 106 yards overall.Darnold was 28 of 48 for 239 yards with four sacks. New York also had a couple of long gains nullified by penalties.“We couldn’t really get a rhythm,” Darnold said. “Whenever you have penalties, especially on big plays, it's hard."This time, the defense added to the lead instead of giving it up, getting its first safety in three years. Dunlap had three of Cincinnati’s four sacks.“We just couldn’t stay consistent on anything,” coach Adam Gase said. “Every time we had something going, we’d shoot ourselves in the foot. I mean, we had eight penalties on offense alone.”INJURIESJets: S Jamal Adams was wearing a walking boot on his left foot after the game. He said he was injured on the first series, but played through it. He wasn’t sure how long he might be sidelined. ... CB Brian Poole was evaluated for a concussion in the first quarter and returned. ... CB Arthur Maulet left in the third quarter with what Gase said was a calf injury.Bengals: WR A.J. Green missed his 12th game recovering from ankle surgery. ... S Brandon Wilson hurt his right hand in the second half.IN THE EXTREMESAfter scoring 34 points in three straight games, the Jets were held to six or fewer for the fourth time this season. They’ve lost 23-3 to Cleveland, 31-6 to Philadelphia and 33-0 to the Patriots.DARNOLD’S STRUGGLESDarnold had a foot stepped on late in the game but said it wasn’t an issue. Darnold’s 48 passes were a season high. His 58 percent completion rate and 71.4 passer rating were his second-lowest Trayveon Williams Jersey 2019 , trailing the loss to New England.UP NEXTJets: host the Dolphins. They lost at Miami 26-18 last month.Bengals: play at Cleveland. The Browns swept the season series last year. As PFT noted in August, the NFL changed the officiating procedures for how to treat a ball carrier who gives himself up, meaning this year, a quarterback who dives head-first should be treated the same way as a quarterback who slides feet-first. That change got little attention, but it was a major difference, as Bengals quarterback Jeff Driskel found out the hard way on Sunday.On third-and-goal at the Chargers’ 1-yard line, Driskel rolled out to his right, looked for an open receiver, and then saw he had room to run and ran toward the end zone, where he dove forward and stuck the ball over the goal line. The official on the field ruled touchdown.But on replay, it was determined that Driskel had given himself up on the play, and he was down before crossing the goal line Trayveon Williams Jersey Mens , just as he would have been if he had gone into a feet-first slide. NFL V.P. of Officiating Al Riveron said in his weekly officiating video that the rules were applied correctly, and a quarterback who dives into the end zone isn’t going to get a touchdown under those circumstances.“The ruling on the field is a touchdown,” Riveron said. “We communicate with the referee and he does affirm the fact that this quarterback dives and therefore gives himself up, and any time a player gives himself up by diving, sliding or any other attempt to give himself up — and this includes diving for the goal line and/or the line to gain — once you dive and give yourself up and any body part other than the hand or foot touches the ground, even though you are not touched by an opponent, you are deemed down and the play is over.”Adding additional protections to keep quarterbacks from getting hurt is fine, but when the rules change so that a quarterback who’s trying to run for a touchdown is “protected” from doing so, that’s something else. The NFL should re-think this rule. A dive toward the goal line should be treated as a player trying to score, not a player giving himself up.
