Dalton arrived in Cincinnati much later, as the Bengals drafted the former TCU Horned Frog in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Those comments could be seen as a dig at the quarterback, but head coach Marvin Lewis stood by Dalton after the game.

"Today my thoughts are with Ken after being on the other side and trying to be humane about it", Lazor said. This is also the first time Cincinnati has gone two straight games without finding the end zone since 2008, and those Bengals had the excuse of having Ryan Fitzpatrick starting in place of an injured Carson Palmer. "We have a lot of talent on offense, and we need to keep working to take full advantage of the personnel we have".

Those came on 3 field goals in their Thursday-night loss to the Houston Texans.

"No, I'm not anxious about Andy", Lewis said when asked if there will be a quarterback change in Cincinnati.

It was nearly 30 minutes before Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton emerged from the showers after the team's 13-9 loss to the Texans on Thursday night. Star wide receiver A.J. Green was one of those who voiced frustration, particularly in not seeing the ball when the Bengals were trailing in the final quarter of the game. "If you look at it like that, then, yes, we're not scoring". It would be nice if you could, but we have a real tough task at hand.

Quarterback Andy Dalton has struggled, completing just 36 of 66 passes for 394 yards and four interceptions. Lazor said he wasn't prepared to answer if that will continue. With 516 total yards through two games, they rank second in the National Football League - ahead of the Texans, but behind the Kansas City Chiefs, who amassed 537 yards in their lone game against New England. He held the job with the Miami Dolphins from 2014-15.
