Week 4 NFL Preview

Seven teams – Arizona, Atlanta, Carolina, Cincinnati, Denver, Green Bay and New England – remain undefeated as the NFL enters Week 4.

“It’s the kind of start you always want to have,” says Bengals quarterback ANDY DALTON, who leads the AFC in passer rating (121.0), about the team’s 3-0 record. “It says a lot about the people we have on this team. We’re going to keep playing one week at a time but we like where we are right now.”
