The Ravens lost linebacker C.J. Mosley in the first quarter with a knee injury. It appears so. But as we've seen in recent seasons, the Bengals' success ultimately can't be defined by what happens in Weeks 1 and 2. Repeatedly one more time, the Bengals be pleased wilted under the spotlight.
Joe Flacco was sharp in an opening 47-3 win over the Bills, but couldn't do anything against Cincinnati until the Bengals led by three touchdowns.
That's powerful brooding about he in overall doesn't reach discontinuance to his easiest under the lights. Give him a licensed Sunday slate, and Dalton has a 59-31-1 file with a 91.1 passer rating.
Heading into the game, Dalton had thrown more interceptions (17) than touchdowns (15) against the Ravens, including a four-interception game at Paul Brown Stadium last season.
If one crew has had Dalton's amount, it's Baltimore.
His first completion in a drive that got the Ravens within a score was to the free agent signing.
Less than 17 minutes into the game, Green had his third touchdown in three possessions against the Ravens' undermanned defense, this time besting cornerback Marlon Humphrey.
With 13:02 left in the second quarter, Green scored his third touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens.
There certainly is potential, even though the Bengals have spent the past two games treading the line between winning and losing. Cincinnati Bengals victor also will have some bragging rights. But now they've got an injury to deal with.
The Bengals are 2-0 for the first time since 2015, when they won the division, and for only the fifth time during coach Marvin Lewis' 16 seasons. John Brown hauled in a gorgeous 21-yard TD throw from Flacco to cut the lead to five points.
On consecutive drives, the offense gave the ball away, first on a failed fourth-down attempt that running back Javorius "Buck" Allen probably should have converted and then on a pop-fly interception by Flacco.
The combo of Dunlap and Geno Atkins has been unhealthy for years, nonetheless it looks to be like esteem the duo is at its all-time easiest. But the Bengals' defense also deserves some of the credit for that.
I hear you. It's unexcited Week 2 and likewise you'll imagine in the Bengals whereas you gaze them safe in January. "When you get the lead, you want to be able to handle it and close it out. We just played sound offense in the first half and made the plays in the second half that we needed". "That's exactly how we wanted to start the game".
