Five Takeaways From The Ravens' Loss To The Bengals

Running back Joe Mixon was outstanding in the Bengals 34-23 win last week and gives the Bengals a diversified attack that the Ravens simply don't have.

There's never a good time to suffer an injury, but this one came at a particularly untimely manner for Mosley, as he is playing on the previous year of his deal with the Ravens, as mentioned by Schefter.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green reached a career-high with three touchdown receptions on Thursday, and it only took him a little more than a quarter to achieve it. After beating up on the hapless Buffalo Bills, who were quarterbacked by Nathan Peterman in Week 1, the Ravens got a bitter dose of reality against Green and the Bengals. But at the same time, so much hype is (understandably) sent towards the likes of Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., and the ungodly Antonio Brown that Green can occasionally get lost in the shuffle.

Geno Atkins (two sacks, four QB hits) repeatedly hounded Flacco, who completed 32 of 55 passes for 376 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions while struggling with his accuracy. Quarterback Andy Dalton looked as sharp as ever when throwing for four touchdowns in the first half against the Ravens, and then he led the offense to five straight punts starting at the 1:22 mark of the second quarter. The Ravens shut out the Bengals 20-0 when the two teams played last season. Plenty of times in past years they have made the playoffs with a loss at Cincinnati on their resume. They changed four of their five starters on the line, and they looked better during a 34-23 win at Indianapolis on Sunday.


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

"It doesn't look to be long-term", Harbaugh said. Andy Dalton had 243 yards passing with two touchdowns.

The regular season is officially one week old, and the Cincinnati Bengals are leading the AFC North outright.

The Bengals are 2-0 for the first time since 2015, when they won the division, and for only the fifth time during coach Marvin Lewis' 16 seasons. They already can count Fejedelem's and Williams' plays as signs of a team that possesses a killer instinct. The Cincinnati defense is playing for now without linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who's serving a four-game suspension for a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. DE Michael Johnson hurt his left knee in the first quarter and didn't return. He left in the first half and briefly returned in the second.
