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]
