Refocused, NFL Week 2: Cincinnati Bengals 34, Baltimore Ravens 23 | NFL Analysis

Dalton got the ball out quickly in the first half and peppered his receivers with catchable targets, leading the Bengals offense into the end zone four times despite three drops from his receivers. The offense's three-play drive was a case study in how not to finish a 21-point comeback: incomplete pass, incomplete pass, fumble on a scramble Flacco hoped would last longer than it did.

What a start it was for the Ravens in week one. That did end up happening but only because their game against the woeful Bills turned into a blowout. He finished the game with five receptions for 69 yards and his three scores.

Baltimore have rung the changes at WR and it payed off big time on Sunday with Michael Crabtree, Willie Sneed & John Brown all heavily involved.

The Ravens had gotten to within 11 points in the third quarter on kicker Justin Tucker's 55-yard field goal, his 22nd consecutive make dating from last season.

Then there is the Ravens defence, although it is hard to judge from Sunday's stroll.

The Ravens were out of the playoffs for the third straight year - Buffalo got its long-awaited chance instead. Nathan Peterman looks completely out of his depth here and I would be shocked if the Bills do not start Josh Allen against the Chargers.

In what started as an ugly, mistake-filled affair, the Bengals got great field position after Joe Flacco's poor interception. 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. Andy Dalton was as strong as ever and AJ Green continues to be excellent at WR. The victor of tonight will have sole possession of first place in the AFC North and a division win under their belt.

It's not a complete surprise that the Bengals might take some time to find their identity.

He now has 44 grabs for 764 yards and nine scores in his past eight games against Baltimore. Another performance like that is needed to stop Flacco and his talented wide receivers.

After trailing 21-0, Baltimore fought back to trail 28-23 in the fourth quarter. Dalton did have an interception earlier on in the game that was nearly taken back for a touchdown but he was able to make a good tackle on the defender to prevent him from scoring and recovered nicely for the remainder of the game. This means it always worth considering the home side no matter who they are playing. With that being said the Bengals are a much better offensive team than the Bills are so the defense will have to show up ready for battle.

With 13:02 left in the second quarter, Green scored his third touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens.

Dixon has had a tough time staying on the field for the Ravens as he has missed 20-of-33 games in his National Football League career and can add at least another 8 games to that list, as he won't be eligible to come off I.R. until Week 11 at the very earliest against the Bengals.
