Ravens can’t recover from Bengals’ dominant 1st half

Ravens can’t recover from Bengals’ dominant 1st half

Flacco was on target while playing little more than a half, throwing three touchdown passes. Linebacker C.J. Mosley went over to the sideline limping before eventually being carted off the field.

FAST START: The Bengals are 2-0 for only the fifth time in Lewis' 16 seasons.

Two touchdowns in a full game is a pretty nice night, but Green wanted more.

The Bengals looked to be in full control, up 21-0 and later 28-7 in the second quarter.

Thanks to four first-half touchdown passes from Andy Dalton - three of them to A.J. Green - the Bengals stormed out to a comfortable lead before downing the Baltimore Ravens, 34-23.

After going up by three touchdowns against the Ravens, they appeared to unravel momentarily, allowing a late touchdown in the first half and then letting the Ravens get within five points in the fourth quarter. Although Dalton cooled off a bit after halftime, he played about as clean a game Thursday as he has against a good team - in primetime, no less - in some time. He finished the game 24-of-42 passing for 265 yards.

Gordon, Kirksey and DeValve out for Browns vs. Saints
Gordon has had a trying career, with serious off-field issues sidelining him for much of the last three seasons. Jackson refused to elaborate on the situation this week, saying he and the coaching staff wanted to "move on".

His first completion in a drive that got the Ravens within a score was to the free agent signing.

Hope did arrive, on the backs of an improved Flacco and a resilient but depleted defense, both sparking a Ravens rally.

Green, the Cincinnati Bengals' star, put on a show for the "Thursday Night Football" fans tuning in.

The big guys up front didn't score the points, but they had a big hand in the Bengals win.

Every other rookie - 0.33-spherical snatch Sam Hubbard - obtained a sack that modified into as soon as if truth be told one of Four for a Bengals pass dawdle that careworn Flacco all evening. Geno Atkins had two sacks and was close to having two more. In last week's win over Buffalo, Collins ran for just 13 yards and also fumbled. His last was a pinpoint 21-yard throw to Brown, who climbed over cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick in the near corner of the end zone for a touchdown that seemed to deaden the announced 50,018 in Paul Brown Stadium.

But it wasn't enough, as the Bengals finished things off. They have a big lead in the division as the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns tied in Week 1 and the Baltimore Ravens fall to 1-1. It's a great start, and they temporarily ended their recent skein in primetime games over the past few seasons. Rookie C Billy Price hurt his right ankle in the first quarter and didn't return.
