CINCINNATI (AP) - There's no scrambling away from it. The Bengals' chances of finally making a deep playoff run rest largely with Andy Dalton, who has been streaky this season and awful during the postseason.

The third-year quarterback set club records for touchdown passes and yards passing this season, leading Cincinnati (11-5) to the playoffs for an unprecedented third season in a row. He got a lot of the credit for helping the Bengals finish in the top 10 in offense.

Everyone knows the team records will be greatly diminished if he has another bad showing on Sunday against San Diego (9-7). He'll be in the spotlight more than anyone else at Paul Brown Stadium.

With so much on the line, will it be good Andy? Or the other Andy?
