Bengals improve to 2-0; Mixon injures knee

The Ravens lost linebacker C.J. Mosley in the first quarter with a knee injury.

But the Ravens' resurgence quickly faltered under Flacco. But in the team's last gasp, Flacco could not deliver the excellence he had supplied in abundance just days earlier.

RUSHING - Baltimore, Collins 9-35, Flacco 3-8, Allen 6-8, M.Williams 1-7, L.Jackson 2-6, Moore 1-2.

The Bengals extended their first-half lead into a 34-23 win over the Ravens in the first matchup between division rivals this season.

His first completion in a drive that got the Ravens within a score was to the free agent signing. The ensuing two-point conversion failed, leaving Baltimore down by five. In 2017, the Bengals had 14 takeaways, making them 2nd-to-closing in the category sooner than entirely the Browns, who had Thirteen. A crucial third-down penalty on cornerback Tavon Young averted a three-and-out for Cincinnati, and it marched downfield with much of the precision it had earlier.

"A lot of people probably underestimate us still", said Mixon.

Mixon finished with 24 carries for 81 and was key to a drive in the fourth quarter that helped set up a field goal that cemented the Bengals' lead.

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

While Green's first touchdown was more about a brilliant fake by quarterback Andy Dalton, this was all about Green. After a three-and-out against the Mosley-led defense, he found the Mosley-less defense to be as different as night and day.

Coach Marvin Lewis received a contract extension in part because of Dalton's 49-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd in the closing seconds of the final game at Baltimore last season, which gave the Bengals a victory and knocked the Ravens out of playoff contention.

Early in the second, Green did it again, coming back to the ball to beat Marlon Humphrey and make it 21-0. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton attributed the win to a strong start, clearly, but it was also a strong performance Dalton and company kept up through the next three quarters that put the Ravens' comeback to bed. Robert Griffin III is inactive for the second straight game. With four new starters, the line has allowed only two sacks - none against the Ravens - and provided some lanes for Mixon, who is averaging 4.7 yards per carry.
