McCarron started in Sunday's 24–14 win over the San Francisco 49ers and finished the day 15 for 21 passing with 192 yards and a touchdown. The Bengals' offense still put together their fewest total yards (242) and pass yards (174) of the season. An early 21–0 lead going into half-time was enoughto hold on for the victory.
Starting quarterback Andy Dalton continues to be sidelined by a thumb injury.
With Sunday's victory McCarron became the first Alabama quarterback to start and win an NFL game since 1987.
