Dalton completed 24-of-34 passes for 372 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions Sunday against the Detroit Lions. He also carried once for six yards.

Despite consistently underthrowing receivers, Green was able to convert these tosses into big gains. The microcosm of the teammates’ afternoon came on an 82-yard touchdown when the receiver beat his defender thoroughly, slowed considerably, made the catch and bolted into the end zone, leaving the corner grasping at air.
