CINCINNATI (AP) - Andy Dalton doesn't throw the prettiest passes. He's not the swiftest when he has to scramble. He's not piling up statistics that stand out, except for one.

His team wins.

The third-year Bengals quarterback is ranked in the middle of the pack of NFL passers this week. His team leads the AFC North all by itself with a 4-2 mark, the first time it's been alone at the top since 2009.

Coach Marvin Lewis says Dalton is following his own timeline in development, getting better at doing what the team needs from him. With a solid defense and a variety of options on offense, Cincinnati doesn't need 400-yard games from Dalton to win games.

The Bengals play at Detroit (4-2) on Sunday.
