Ken Anderson was the first big star or popular player the Cincinnati Bengals had at the quarterback position. He came to the team in the early 1970’s and showed immediately that he had the talent to be one of the better quarterbacks in the league. Throughout the end of that decade and the beginning of the next, Anderson’s name would regularly appear on yearly leader lists and as the recipient of individual awards.
He played in a lot of big games during his career and made a lot of big plays. Many of his touchdown passes are still some of the more important ones thrown in team history. Who was his favorite receiver though? Who did he throw the most touchdown passes to?
