Andy Dalton may have lost the game to the Steelers Monday Night, but he won the respect of many fans as well as surely some players on the opposing sideline.
The Bengals quarterback stayed back after Steelers-Bengals to pray for Pittsburgh LB Ryan Shazier, who suffered a serious spinal injury during the first quarter, needing to be rushed to a hospital shortly after.

Shazier’s status was unknown at the time the game ended, with reports that he had recovered slight movement in his lower extremities not becoming public until early Tuesday morning.
