Good start carries Bengals past Ravens

16 September 2018

The Ravens offensive line was overwhelmed by the Bengals defensive line and was the main reason why the offense could not get anything going till the second half.

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.

The Bengals be pleased began immediate sooner than.

Due to injuries a couple years ago, or last season's offensive debacle with a bad offensive line and an early-season coordinator change, Green's numbers dipped.

That's powerful brooding about he in overall doesn't reach discontinuance to his easiest under the lights.

Andy Dalton kept the Ravens out of the playoffs past year by throwing a long touchdown pass. Give him a licensed Sunday slate, and Dalton has a 59-31-1 file with a 91.1 passer rating.

So Dalton throwing for 265 yards, Four touchdowns, and no interceptions is rather honest, especially when it came against the Ravens.

If one crew has had Dalton's amount, it's Baltimore.

"I'm loving it, and I'm sure everyone else is loving it", said Tyler Boyd, who had a 14-yard touchdown catch. But the Bengals gave him a tough time early, sacking him on each of Baltimore's first three possessions and forcing a pass that was picked off.

The Baltimore Ravens might want to put an extra man on A.J. Green.

The Bengals won this game in the trenches. If the Bengals can find a way to string their good moments together, they certainly can make some noise in the AFC North.

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

During their divisional showdown with the Ravens, Billy Price suffered a sprained ankle and was forced to leave the game. Atkins was a force in the interior, racking up two sacks and several quarterback pressures, at times making All-Pro guard Marshal Yanda look silly. That would possibly possibly be since the Bengals can throw Hubbard, and 2nd-year pass rushers Carl Lawson and Jordan Willis into the combo. But the Bengals' defense also deserves some of the credit for that. He became the fourth Bengals receiver to catch three TD passes in a half, joining Marvin Jones (2013), Chad Johnson (2003) and Isaac Curtis (1973). It's a great start, and they temporarily ended their recent skein in primetime games over the past few seasons.

An upgraded line has made it possible.
