Should Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback Andy Dalton live at the carnival

It's not an uncommon sight to see the stars of one league featuring in a major league of another completely different sport.

Johnny Manziel, Russell Wilson and even the current Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston all play two sports and with two drafted in football and baseball and the other a prominent figure in both sports at the college level, it will surely get even less rare.

Basketball and football aren't necessarily two sports that cross wires and if you think of it, should they?

I mean Quarterback's can throw the ball very accurately - no doubt a useful skill in basketball, Wide Receiver are fast as light - definitely applicable to both and pretty much both sets of players are at their physical peak.

So when it comes to the Cincinnati Bengals starting Quarterback Andy Dalton, he has a somewhat specialised basketball skill of his own.

Everyone knows the pop-shot game at the local arcade, basically you're given a set time to score as many baskets as possible and clearly, Dalton is a pro.

In a video uploaded to Instagram by Bengals team-mate Marvin Jones Jr, Dalton just seems relentless at the game seemingly missing perhaps one or two shots and perhaps even more impressively showing his speed in the process.

Clearly just a relaxing day at the fair for Dalton and Co. but the video has become quite popular within the Bengals fans who will no doubt be hoping Dalton can be as accurate when the team takes to the field once again.

Aiming for one better

Dalton has been the starter in Cincinnati for three years now and has led the Bengals to the play-offs in each of his three years.

Their play-off history hasn't been fruitful however as they have lost all three of their post-season games.

Two losses to the Houston Texans and a loss to the San Diego Chargers last year have ensured the Dalton has never been able to get that illusive play-off win.

Sharing a division with the most talked about team this off-season, the Cleveland Browns and a conference with the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots and even more reformed teams such as the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets are surely going to make it harder for the Bengals to progress next year.
