Each Monday, Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. breaks down games from the previous weekend. Today, he looks at the action in Week 10.

Dalton shines in defeat: Sunday was a huge test for Bengals QB Andy Dalton. Not only was he facing a very difficult Steelers defense to play against from both a mental and physical standpoint, but he had to deal with extreme winds at home. My biggest concern about Dalton going to the Bengals was how he would be able to navigate the weather late in the season. I didn't think his arm would be able to handle such conditions when I watched him at TCU, but he has thrown the ball better at this level than he did in college. The wind didn't seem to bother him or Ben Roethlisberger, so I think the jury is still out on that.
