A second-half comeback wasn't almost enough as the Cincinnati Bengals held on for a 34-23 victory, riding a dominant start led by Andy Dalton's four touchdown passes. The Ravens won 47-3 last week against the hapless Buffalo Bills, while the Bengals rallied from two touchdowns down to defeat the Colts in Indianapolis.

The Bengals (1-0) haven't forgotten about it, either. The Bengals are 6-14 in prime-time games since Dalton's rookie season of 2011 - 0-5 on Sunday night, 2-5 on Monday night, 4-3 on Thursday night and 0-1 on Saturday night.

In what usually is a close game, Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green made sure Cincinnati enjoyed a cozy lead after scoring three touchdowns - yes, three - in the first 17 minutes.

At times the Bengals have looked like they possess the qualities to win the AFC North, and at other times they have looked like the team that went 7-9 last season.

The Bengals managed to take the ball away from the Colts twice on Sunday, both at crucial times. The biggest problem for the Bengals will be how to prepare for Jackson.

After a first-quarter interception, his 75th since the 2013 season for the second-most in the league, Flacco tightened up and nearly pulled off an impressive comeback until Bengals safety Shawn Williams forced a turnover to effectively end the game.

But they could not hold off the Bengals' stalled offense for long.

Yet, when it counted, the Bengals put together a field goal drive to extend the lead to eight and keep things just out of reach.

Ravens stop the Bills but how bad were Buffalo? With that being said the Bengals are a much better offensive team than the Bills are so the defense will have to show up ready for battle. In truth numerous players over the years have come out against it, feeling that the short timespan between games takes a tough toll on the body. We caught the ball today. With the Steelers tying the Browns in Week 1, and nobody having a clue when Steelers star Le'Veon Bell will return from his long holdout, the victor of this game could have an early stranglehold on the keys to the division with a 2-0 start on the line. "We did a good job throughout". But in the team's last gasp, Flacco could not deliver the excellence he had supplied in abundance just days earlier. Instead, safety Clayton Fejedelem, who was subbing in for the then-ejected Williams, came up with a game-winning fumble to seal the win.

The victor of this game with move comfortably into the first-place spot for the division as the Steelers and Browns somehow managed to tie each other in Week 1. The team held the Bills to just a field goal last week, no matter how bad the Bills are on paper this is the National Football League and in today's game it's still hard to keep teams in check like they did. While Vontaze Burfict is still serving his four-game suspension, Preston Brown is inactive for the game after entering the day questionable to play due to an ankle injury.

However, the Bengals' lapses are certainly cause for concern, especially with a hard schedule looming. It wasn't fancy, but they exploited matchups against the Bengals linebackers who struggled in coverage.

"We're learning and growing", Lewis said. "We've still got that bitter taste in our mouths".
