Outside of Week 1, Dalton hasn't attempted more than 23 pass attempts in any given game. Week 5 pits the Bengals against the Patriots. Look for more of the same as New Englands' secondary can wreak havoc but they most definitely can be ran on.
Palmer expects to play this week against the Broncos. If he is suited up expect a solid QB2 performance with upside possibility against Denver. If Palmer can't go though, Stanton will get the nod.
