NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Andy Dalton rebounded from one of the worst outings of his career by passing for three touchdowns, and the Cincinnati Bengals dropped the New Orleans Saints to a second straight loss, 27-10 on Sunday.
For Dalton, the game represented a dramatic reversal from a week ago, when he completed only 10 passes for 86 yards and had a passer rating of 2.0 in a 24-3 loss to Cleveland.
Against New Orleans (4-6), Dalton gave the Bengals (6-3-1) an early lead they never relinquished. He was 16 of 22 for 220 yards, did not throw an interception and finished with a passer rating of 143.9.
Two of Dalton's touchdown passes went to tight end Jermaine Gresham and the other to A.J. Green on a pinpoint 24-yard pass along the sideline.
Drew Brees passed for 255 yards and one TD to Kenny Stills.
