Result: Mixed day for Andy Dalton as Cincinnati Bengals grab vital win

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton throws more interceptions than touchdowns as his team fought off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a single point.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton endured a mixed day as he led his team to a 14-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The signal caller threw three first-half interceptions but also scored a rushing touchdown, before a much-improved second half completed the job.

Dalton threw his first pick within the first 10 seconds of the match, shooting straight into the arms of Johnthan Banks. Although Banks ran the ball back deep into Bengals territory, they had to settle for a Patrick Murray field goal to open the scoring.

Following more struggles on Bengals offense, the home side scored the first touchdown of the day, with running back Doug Martin carrying in a seven-yard attempt.

Brandon Dixon was the next Tampa Bay player to intercept Dalton as he tried to forced a pass to AJ Green in the endzone.

On their next red zone trip, the quarterback decided to run it in himself, faking a handoff to Giovani Bernard and rushing for six points.

Dalton was picked off once more before the break, but improved after half time, quickly leading the Bengals downfield, culminating in a 13-yard touchdown pass to Green.

Murray kept the Buccaneers in the contest, scoring his second field goal of the day right at the beginning of the final quarter.

Both Dalton and Tampa quarterback Josh McCown did their best to keep their offenses moving during the last 15 minutes, resulting in no further points as the game headed into the two-minute warning.

McCown's two-minute drill provided thrills and spills via catches and penalties, but in the end the Bengals held on and managed to avoid conceding a field goal shot.
