My concern with the longtime Bengals starter, though, is that offensive line. Dalton has historically been among the quarterbacks most affected by pressure; since entering the league in 2011, he has posted the league’s worst Total QBR and fourth-worst passer rating when pressured by opposing Cheap Miami Heat Jerseys defenses (among passers with at least 1,500 attempts).
During his breakout season in 2015, Dalton had a bevy of talented receivers, a group of playmakers the Bengals are hoping to re-create by selecting Mixon and John Ross in the 2017 draft. More importantly, Dalton had a great offensive line that made it through 78 of 80 total starts. Dalton blossomed in a quarterback-friendly scheme designed to get the ball out quickly and keep him away from pressure.
Halftime. A relatively rough first half offensively for both teams ended with the Broncos holding a 153-110 total yards advantage over the Chargers. Trevor Siemian scored both of Denver’s touchdowns, one rushing and one passing, and the Philip Rivers-Melvin Gordon connection was responsible for Cheap NFL Jerseys China Los Angeles’ lone score.
Trevor Siemian showed off his wheels — and apparently some sweet moves, as Joey Bosa found out — on a 1-yard touchdown scamper to cap a nine-play, 56-yard drive and give the Broncos the lead in the late stages of the second quarter. 14-7, Broncos.
The Chargers scored their first touchdown of the game on the first play of the second quarter with an 11-yard Philip Rivers touchdown pass to running back Melvin Gordon. The score capped a nine-play, 75-yard drive and tied the game with the extra point. 7-7, tie game.
