CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals knew drastic changes were in order after they finished last in the league in offense and Andy Dalton suffered through his worst season since he was a rookie.They changed the playbook John Miller Jersey White , bolstered the offensive line and decided to set Dalton loose.One month into the season, he's back in a comfort zone and producing as well as ever. Dalton's resurgence has been the most notable aspect to Cincinnati's 3-1 start. He was nearly perfect in the first half of a 37-36 win at Atlanta on Sunday, missing only two passes while throwing for 211 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also led a winning 16-play drive, connecting with A.J. Green on a 13-yard touchdown with 7 seconds left.Dalton has thrown for 11 touchdowns in his first four games, the best opening stretch of his eight-year career. He also has more completions and attempts than in any previous four-game start as coordinator Bill Lazor puts the onus him to lead a reconfigured offense still learning nuances of the playbook."We work really hard to be consistent … and to be clear with what we want," Lazor said. "I think that's the part that right now is starting to click and hopefully we can get even better at it."It would be difficult to be better than Dalton was in the first half Sunday . He completed 14 of 16 passes and had a passer rating of 158.3, the highest possible. The Bengals ran 24 plays and scored 28 points, averaging 9.9 yards per play.On the winning drive, Dalton completed passes on third-and-6, fourth-and-8 and fourth-and-6 before hitting Green for the touchdown."He pulled us out of a heck of a situation Geno Atkins Jersey ," cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said.The Bengals had losing records the past two seasons because they were unable to pull out games at the end. The winning drive marked a notable step forward."We didn't flinch," Dalton said. "We just kept going. That's what you need to be a really good team and to be a good offense."Dalton is known for getting into a rhythm and getting rid of the ball quickly in Cincinnati's West Coast offense. He never got into a rhythm last season because he rarely had time to set and throw. The offensive line was so inconsistent that there was little running game, either, leaving Dalton as a target.He was sacked 13 times in the first four games of 2016 and 14 times over the same span last year. He's been dropped only seven times this season despite throwing more often.Overall, Dalton is off to his best four-game start since 2015, when the Bengals won the AFC North and Dalton finished with a passer rating of 106.3 that led the conference. He's been overshadowed by the performances of other quarterbacks off to fast starts, which is how Lazor and Dalton like it."I'd rather people not talk about us," Lazor said. "We were doing just fine. Nobody talked about us all offseason, all training camp. We're fine. We'll just be quiet and just do our thing."BURFICT'S WEEK: Linebacker Vontaze Burfict is expected back at practice Wednesday after completing his latest suspension — four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancers. The Bengals have a one-week roster exemption, but are expected to activate him for a game Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium against the Dolphins (3-1). He's played a significant number of plays in his first games back after injury and suspensions the past three years. The Bengals celebrated their 50th season last year Womens Andy Dalton Jersey , finishing 7-9. They're reaching back into history again for a bit of nostalgia, honoring their 1988 Super Bowl team — the last one to do anything noteworthy in the postseason.Owner Mike Brown remembers those giddy days 30 years ago."Do I think about that? All the time," Brown said. "That's what's in my mind. I know the feeling you're talking about, and I want us to somehow come back and grab onto that again. It's the best of times, and some of that is what keeps me plugging along here."The Bengals haven't won a playoff game since the 1990 season, the sixth-longest streak of postseason futility in NFL history. They've had seven chances under coach Marvin Lewis and blown them all, including an epic last-minute meltdown against the Steelers in the 2015 season at Paul Brown Stadium.They open a new season trying to outrun a lot of bad recent history.The stadium will likely have a lot of empty seats when the Bengals bring members of the '88 team onto the field during their season opener against Baltimore on Thursday, Sept. 13. They failed to fill the stadium for any game last season, and attendance dropped noticeably as a second straight losing season wound down.Lewis was noncommittal about sticking around, but was rewarded with a two-year extension and a 16th chance to try to get it right. Brown's decision to stay with a coach who has the worst playoff record in NFL history sent a message of more-of-the-same in Cincinnati Womens A.J. Green Jersey , where many fans have given up."Of course I worry about attendance figures," Brown said. "I've been able to add and subtract for a long time. I can look out there. I see what you see. Does it bother me? It bothers me to my core. I don't like it, and I dearly want to get us back to where we have the enthusiasm and the support that I think we want."Five things to watch with the Bengals this season:CH-CH-CHANGES: Even though Lewis stayed, Brown permitted significant changes in the coaching staff, including a new set of coordinators on offense and defense from a year ago and a new offensive line coach. While avoiding change at the top, Brown is hoping adjustments in the staff are enough to make a difference.OH-THAT-LINE: The offensive line was the biggest reason the Bengals finished last in the league in yards gained. They traded with Buffalo for left tackle Cordy Glenn, signed right tackle Bobby Hart and drafted center Billy Price in the first round. The overhauled line had some issues in the preseason and will be the focus throughout the season.DALTON 8.0: Quarterback Andy Dalton has proven he can be among the league's most efficient passers when he's got time. He's not as adept at improvising, and last year he spent a lot of time on the run because of the line's inability to protect him. The Bengals have put more emphasis on big plays under coordinator Bill Lazor, throwing deep often during preseason. The Bengals need breakout years from receiver John Ross and running back Joe Mixon — their top two picks last year — along with third-year receiver Tyler Boyd.GROUNDED DEFENSE: The Bengals gave multiyear extensions to defensive end Carlos Dunlap and tackle Geno Atkins before the final preseason game, making them the foundation of a unit looking for improvement. The defense slipped to 18th in yards allowed last season.TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE: The Bengals sold only 47 http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-jessie-bates-iii-jersey ,732 tickets for their final home game last year in their 65,515-seat stadium, their smallest crowd since 2011. They didn't come close to filling the stadium for any game, not even against the Steelers and their large contingent of fans. For their first preseason home game this season, the Bengals sold only 35,633 tickets.
