Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton's postseason struggles continued with one touchdown and three interceptions Sunday, Jan. 5, against the San Diego Chargers. That dropped his record in playoffs to 0-3 with one touchdown and five interceptions. Head coach Marvin Lewis, still looking for that first postseason win himself with an 0-5 record, backed Dalton in the tough moments after his toughest loss in 11 seasons when the inevitable question about the future of the quarterback was broached. "I don't have any questions about Andy's role in this thing. We just have to keep working it," Lewis said. "We've got to make sure we're doing everything to help Andy all the time. He's going to be very disappointed in himself today, obviously. He is the football team, and I'm sure he's very disappointed."
