Bengals lose but learn something

Okay, let me get this out of the way. The Cincinnati Bengals lost to the Denver Broncos in Denver, 24-22. The Broncos blasted the Bengals on in the first drive. Eighty yards later, Broncos score a touchdown. And later in the fourth quarter, Broncos QB Kyle Orton found Eric Decker as two Bengals ran into each other trying to make the tackle. TD for the Broncos. Meanwhile the Bengals went 1-11 on third down conversions. That's the ballgame.

But there's a silver lining in this cloud. Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton threw 27-41, 310 yards and 2 TDs. No interceptions. He was accurate, showed moxie and leadership. The Bengals look like they have a quarterback.
