Those opponents have a combined record of 9-21.
Selected with the 35th overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, the former TCU standout has completed 62.4 percent of his 218 pass attempts for 1,479 yards with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions this season. Dalton also has 22 rushing yards and used his legs to get into the end zone in the Bengals' 23-20 win over the Bills in Week 4.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton won the award in September.
