Ravens loss to Bengals on TNF is completely embarrassing

Ravens loss to Bengals on TNF is completely embarrassing

A disastrous start, the loss of defensive leader C.J. Mosley, several critical penalties and inconsistent play from quarterback Joe Flacco all played a part as the Ravens dropped a 34-23 decision at the Cincinnati Bengals Sept. 13. By comparison, the Ravens had only 27 yards and one first down during that span. Between a completely weak effort all the way around from the defense and the offense's inability to sustain drives early in the game, coupled with extremely avoidable turnovers, quickly put Baltimore into a hole they couldn't dig themselves out of. In his first year as the undisputed no.1 back in Cincinnati, Mixon touched the ball 22 times for 149 yards and a touchdown.

The Ravens have a pretty good secondary, and they had no chance against Green.

The Baltimore Ravens marched into the second week of the season looking to double down on their 47-3 win over the Buffalo Bills last week. Flacco threw three touchdown passes, one to each of the newcomers: John Brown, Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead.

It's hard not to wonder where the Cincinnati Bengals offense and quarterback Andy Dalton would be without star wide receiver A.J. Green.

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.

With top cornerback Jimmy Smith serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy, Green will see more of Marlon Humphrey, Brandon Carr and Tavon Young. They also managed to outscore the Colts 17-0 in the fourth quarter on Sunday, finishing strong is a trend that wins games. Dalton was sharp Thursday night, with four touchdown passes and no interceptions.

"You better bounce back quick on a Thursday night and we didn't do it quick enough tonight", Flacco said.

"John is a different type of player, just with his speed and what he does to defenders", Flacco said. 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. They already can count Fejedelem's and Williams' plays as signs of a team that possesses a killer instinct.

A young man in a black shirt ran onto the field in the closing minutes undetected until he got near Dalton. Vontaze Burfict is suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Mosley left in the first quarter with a knee injury the Ravens later described as a bone bruise. He left in the first half and briefly returned in the second.

The Bengals will be tested by playing their next two games on the road at Carolina and Atlanta.
