CINCINNATI (AP) The Cincinnati Bengals want quarterback Andy Dalton to be more of a leader in their quest for an elusive playoff win. So far, no complaints.
Dalton has thrown for more yards and touchdowns in a season than any other Bengal, has never missed a start in four seasons, and ranks with Joe Flacco as the only quarterbacks to lead their team to the playoffs in their first four seasons.
He's also 0-4 in the playoffs, a mark that defines him more than any other. The Bengals are challenging him to take the team farther this season by taking more control of it.
