Can Dalton guide the Bengals to the playoffs in 2012?

When was the last time your TCU quarterback was top five in the NFL?

Andy Dalton—QB of the playoff-hopeful Cincinnati Bengals—is not indoctrinated in the schooling of sophomore slumps.

The second-year man out of Texas Christian University ranks fifth with a 103.0 quarterback rating. He’s competed 67.5 percent of his passes for over 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns.

He rates even better in total QBR with a mark of 78.3. Many NFL pundits consider this a more comprehensive metric for the quarterback position.

For perspective, Matt Ryan and Ben Roethlisberger are two or fewer points ahead of Dalton at Nos. 3 and 2, respectively.

Dalton certainly has his team going in the right direction at 3-1 in the early goings.

Heading into Week 5, let’s detail the three reasons why Dalton will continue guiding the Bengals back to the playoffs in 2012.
