Behind Enemy Lines Zrebiec Morrison offer opposing insight into Bengals-Ravens

Baltimore's offense is probably somewhere in between what we've seen the past two weeks, which isn't much different from what they've shown the past few years.

If the Bengals can continue to power turnovers, a proper defense would possibly possibly perchance be on the verge of turning correct into a right one in Cincinnati. It harassed Joe Flacco early and often and came up with just enough big plays late to hang on.

After trailing 21-0, Baltimore got within 28-23 in the fourth quarter. Wideout A.J. Green just put up the first three-touchdown game of his career.

Bengals running back Joe Mixon is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Ravens, the team announced.

NFL Research noted too that: "Andy Dalton is the first player since Matt Ryan (Week 17, 2016 vs New Orleans Saints) to throw four touchdowns in the first half". After sacking Bills quarterbacks six times last week, the Ravens hardly got to Dalton at all. Dalton finished 24 of 42 for 265 yards, throwing four touchdown passes for the fifth time in his career.

But the Ravens made it interesting after looking completely washed early.


But the Ravens' resurgence quickly faltered under Flacco.

Baltimore: Flacco and the Ravens offense took almost an entire half of football to get into a groove, and by then it was too late.

The Bengals stanched the bleeding by tacking on two fourth-quarter field goals.

ESPN also added in a later graphic that four other teams have scored at least 34 points in each of their first two games in the last ten seasons, with three of them going to the Super Bowl. Rookie Sam Hubbard had a sack and a tackle for loss to help set the early tone for the Bengals. Alex Collins had only 13 touches but made the a lot of them with some nifty tackle-shaking moves en route to 90 yards from scrimmage, including a career-best 55 receiving.

Bal - J.Brown 21 pass from Flacco (pass failed), 9:35. The last time was 2015, when they won the division title and suffered a first-round playoff meltdown against Pittsburgh at Paul Brown Stadium.

Thursday Night Football games are the toughest to pick, what with the short week and injury concerns. Green. More importantly, he did not throw an interception and was not sacked behind an improved offensive line that held its ground even after starting center Billy Price exited with an ankle injury.
