Bengals/Raiders Fight: Cincinnati Linemen Compare Protecting Andy Dalton to Protecting Their Wives and Moms

“A lot of us think of Andy, I do personally, as like my mom. Just imagine somebody taking a free shot on your mom after the whistle is blown a few times. We just take it to heart and we’re not going to stand for that.”

Andre Smith, offensive lineman, Cincinnati Bengals

Andrew Whitworth, the first lineman on the scene after Dalton was tackled after the whistle, had this to say: “I’ve got two contracts in my life. One, with my wife because we’re married. And, two, I’ve got a contract to protect Andy Dalton. I’ll do both of those to the best of my ability.” [Enquirer]
