Ravens can’t recover from Bengals’ dominant 1st half

  • A.J. Green is looking for a big finish vs. the Ravens at home

Hope did arrive, on the backs of an improved Flacco and a resilient but depleted defense, both sparking a Ravens rally. Deep in Baltimore territory, Green beat Ravens corner Tavon Young for the first score on a pretty red-zone design vs. single coverage. Touchdown No. 3 came after the Ravens' third punt in four possession, as Green bested Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey on a 3rd-and-goal catch to give the Bengals a three-TD edge early. But in the team's last gasp, Flacco could not deliver the excellence he had supplied in abundance just days earlier.

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.

"They fought and played hard, but they didn't play ideal", Harbaugh said.

The Ravens never got out of the hole Green created for them. The Ravens defeated the Bengals 23-9. Andy Dalton finished the game completing 21-0f-28 passes for 243 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

There certainly is potential, even though the Bengals have spent the past two games treading the line between winning and losing. He also fumbled with 2:42 to go - Shawn Williams stripped the ball from behind - setting up a field goal by Randy Bullock that closed it out.

Nearly as soon as the Ravens got the ball back, Flacco gave it back. Flacco was on target while playing little more than a half, throwing three touchdown passes. The Ravens already look far better this year than last year. But they squandered chance after chance to make the fourth quarter more manageable. Dixon did manage to score a rushing touchdown along with fellow Raven running backs, Alex Collins and Javorius Allen. Dalton finished 24 of 42 for 265 yards, throwing four touchdown passes for the fifth time in his career. After a three-and-out against the Mosley-led defense, he found the Mosley-less defense to be as different as night and day.

In what started as an ugly, mistake-filled affair, the Bengals got great field position after Joe Flacco's poor interception.

"Andy played unbelievable", said Green, who caught a 38-yard touchdown pass. For more data and analysis from the game, utilize our Premium Stats 2.0 dashboard to expand your knowledge on the key players, signature stats and much more.

Running back Joe Mixon battled a right knee issue but finished with 87 yards on 22 touches, and Tyler Boyd added six catches for 91 yards and a score. At that point, no one would have blamed the Ravens for wanting a second game against the Bills this season, not the Bengals. Those three touchdown receptions went for 43 yards, and it seemed like Green was just getting started against a Ravens defense fighting for answers. Up 21-0, Cincinnati already had almost as many yards of total offense (151) as the Bills finished with Sunday (153).
