Former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, who started Sunday for the Chicago Bears against his former team, led a scoring drive that resulted in an 11-yard touchdown catch by Allen Robinson on the Bears' opening drive of the game.
Dalton was 6-for-7 with 39 passing yards during the drive.
It's Dalton's second game against his former team. Dalton and the Dallas Cowboys routed the Bengals, 30-7, last December.
Social media reactions:
Dalton agreed to terms on a one-year deal - reportedly worth $10 million with the chance to earn another $3 million in incentives - with the Bears in March. The Bears made it clear throughout the offseason that Dalton would be their QB1 when the season started despite selecting Justin Fields in the draft.
The Bengals' starting QB from 2011 to 2019 trails only Ken Anderson among Cincinnati's all-time leaders in passing yardage.
Dalton's deal reunited him with Bears offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, the Bengals' offensive coordinator during the 2017 and 2018 seasons who also served as former head coach Marvin Lewis' quarterbacks coach during the 2016 season.
