In spite of the 2 interceptions thrown by Dalton, he completed 18 of 29 attempts for 168 yards and 2 touchdowns. One of those touchdowns went to star rookie receiver, AJ Green. Green finished the game with 4 receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown. A great surprise in this game came from Bernard Scott, who was filling in for the suspended Cedric Benson. Scott added a productive 76-yards on 22 carries.
