Andy Dalton Stats for each NFC team

A few weeks ago, we published the results of how Andy Dalton would do on each AFC team for a full season (in Madden, at least) to see how he would fare with varying rosters. Dalton was traded to each AFC team through the video game and played a full season (plus playoffs when eligible) with each team. Through 16 seasons (one with each AFC team), he had two Super Bowl rings and a number of other playoff appearances. One of the Super Bowls even came with a surprising Chargers team, which barely sneaked into the playoffs as a wild card. It honestly couldn’t have gone much better for Dalton in the AFC. Now, we have done the same exercise for Dalton in the NFC and are going to look to see how he does with the teams in the other conference.

Check out the above video for stats and highlights from Dalton’s 16 NFC seasons worth of football, and for the quick results, see below, in order of worst to best results!

Eagles: 2-13-1

This was very surprising, the Eagles may not have the best supporting cast, but they have a good offensive line. I thought if anything would bring down the Eagles’ season it would be their poor secondary. However, overall Dalton had a poor season with a barely positive touchdown interception ratio at 18:17. I have no idea why Dalton had such a poor season, but it looks like the defense was also terrible with this kind of record. No team goes 2-13-1 if at least one side of their game is going well.

Seahawks: 4-12

This season really surprised me. The Seahawks’ offensive line is not very good and I thought maybe that was what caused the Seahawks to have a bad season, but overall despite a decent amount of pressure, Dalton had a pretty good season. That would lead me to believe the Seahawks’ defense was what caused the bad season, which would be extremely surprising. However, that has to be the way it went with Dalton’s decent season and the Seahawks’ poor season.

49ers: 4-12

It is not surprising at all that the 49ers had such a bad season and that Dalton had a bad season with them. His offensive line was in shambles and the offensive skill positions can only be described as terrible. Their defense is also awful and really there isn’t many redeemable qualities about the roster. Of course you would expect a quarterback who is good to raise the people around him. However, Dalton was awful finishing the season with an 11:12 touchdown to interception ratio.

Redskins: 5-11

A lot of people compare Cousins to Dalton as an average quarterback. This adds up looking at this season; Dalton had a run of the mill season and the Redskins did not do great overall. Dalton was alright and did some stat padding with nearly a 100 passer rating, but that stat can be deceiving at times and I believe it was here. Dalton had a decent, but not great season with Washington’s roster.

Cardinals: 5-11

Well, the Bengals former franchise quarterback now plays for the Cardinals and in this exercise the Bengals took him back and gave Arizona the Bengals’ current franchise quarterback. It didn’t …
