AJ Green has career night in little more than a quarter

AJ Green has career night in little more than a quarter

He's never had more than two TDs after the first two games ... Dalton knew that Green would get there in time to make the play work, just like he knew he could keep going to him on Thursday and Green would find a way to make the play.

Just because the Ravens looked dominant in Week 1 doesn't mean they'll win on Thursday Night Football. Yes, the Ravens limited Buffalo to just 153 yards, marking just the second time since 2012 that the Ravens have held a team under 155 yards but we also must admit that the Bills were truly very bad. Past year the Bengals eliminated the Ravens from the playoffs in the final seconds and you can be guaranteed that the Ravens have not forgotten that. They've overcome a 21-point deficit to win a game only once in their history, beating the Arizona Cardinals 30-27 in 2011. He had five after the first two weeks in 2015 ...

Cincinnati: Andy Dalton has shown plenty of times throughout his career that when he's on, he can compete with the best of them.

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. A rematch against the hated AFC North rival Cincinnati Bengals was already enough reason for us to want a smack-down, but add in the fact that this is the same squad that ultimately eliminated Baltimore from the playoffs in 2017 and this game became that much more important. Defensively the Bengals employ a pass rush that includes Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, and Carl Lawson and they should be able to pressure Joe Flacco. But they failed on a two-point conversion that would have gotten them to within three points.

Flacco fumbled with 2:42 to go - Shawn Williams stripped the ball from behind - setting up a field goal by Randy Bullock that closed it out.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network also adds that Mosley and the Ravens weren't making much progress in their extension talks, so the Alabama product's injury is likely only going to make any negotiations more hard.

Woodward: Kelly, Mattis denials of his book quotes untrue
Porter said he was "struck by the selective and often misleading portrait it paints of the president and his administration". More: Bob Woodward on Donald Trump and "Fear": Is it time to feel afraid? Trump asked, according to Woodward.

Dalton and Green are the mainstays of the offense. Joe Mixon was stellar, rushing for 95 yards and a TD and receiving for 54 yards, as he is the clear-cut top back for the Bengals.

The Ravens head to Cincinnati to face the Bengals to kick off Week 2, and we'll be following along with the action right here.

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

Cincinnati (2-0) has now won eight of their last 10 meetings with Baltimore (1-1), including six of seven at home.

The Bengals opened their season with a 34-23 win over the Colts on Sunday. "We doubled him some, we rotated coverage to him some - we did all that", Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.
