Week 2 Opens with AFC North Affair

Joe Flacco

By the time the Ravens figured out what they needed to do, they were too far behind and their streak of five straight Thursday night wins was tottering. They return to action at home against the Denver Broncos Sept. 23. Atkins was a force in the interior, racking up two sacks and several quarterback pressures, at times making All-Pro guard Marshal Yanda look silly. 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.

"I think from last season, winning the last two games gave us momentum", receiver A.J. Green said.

Andy Dalton kept the Ravens out of the playoffs previous year by throwing a long touchdown pass.

Second-year running back Joe Mixon finished last week's performance with 17 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown.

For Baltimore, Joe Flacco is coming off a game where he completed 25 of 34 pass attempts for 236 yards and 3 touchdown passes. To complain about a 14-point halftime lead for a young Bengals team would be silly so we will look at the positives, after an offensively favored start.

Without a doubt, the Ravens missed Smith. Suggs played just 48 percent (31 of 64) of Sunday's snaps, while safety Eric Weddle and linebacker C.J. Mosley each played 73 percent (47 snaps).

Rookie linebacker Kenny Young stepped in for Mosley and played alongside Patrick Onwuasor, finishing with seven tackles. It didn't seem a good read or wise decision. Offensively, they didn't let a poor offensive line showing stop them, moving the pocket around more and throwing shorter passes dotted with the occasional deep pass that connected. By comparison, the Ravens had only 27 yards and one first down during that span. Dalton was sharp Thursday night, with four touchdown passes and no interceptions. Plenty of times in past years they have made the playoffs with a loss at Cincinnati on their resume.

Ochocinco stated that the Bengals are "winning the AFC Championship", and dared his doubters to save their opinion on the matter if they can not cover him.
