Andy Dalton will make fewer pass attempts under new Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. writer Geoff Hobson says that Jackson will change the way the Bengals offense operates.

The problem is the interceptions. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson won a title averaging 25.4 passes in the regular season and then didn’t throw more than 25 in the playoffs. Meanwhile, Dalton suffered 20 interceptions averaging 37 passes per game and two more in the wild card game when he threw 51 passes even though the defense had the Bengals in every game.

The Bengals have a top notch defense and a good ground game so Dalton taking less pass attempts is not necessarily a bad thing for their offensive game plan.

Dalton finished the 2013 season with 4,296 yards with 33 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.
