Bengals' Andy Dalton perfect in preseason loss to New York Jets

CINCINNATI -- Andy Dalton completed all eight of his passes and led the Bengals to a pair of touchdowns and a field goal during three impressive series Saturday night before the New York Jets' reserves rallied for a 25-17 preseason victory.

It was Dalton's first game at Paul Brown Stadium since his turnover-filled 27-10 loss to San Diego in the opening round of the playoffs. Also, his first home game since he signed a six-year contract extension.

He went 8 for 8 for 144 yards, one touchdown and a perfect passer rating of 158.3. The Bengals (0-2) rolled up 173 yards while he was in the game.

The Jets (2-0) got drubbed 49-9 in Cincinnati midway through last season - Dalton threw a career-high five touchdown passes in that one. Their injury-depleted secondary made it easy for Dalton on Saturday night.
