Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals: Preview and Prediction

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals: Preview and Prediction

And with over 20 fantasy points in the first half alone, Dalton and the Bengals offense weren't the only people who benefited greatly from Green's outburst of offensive production.

Again, Flacco tried to will Baltimore back into the game with this late drive, a 21-yard touchdown pass to John Brown. He's fit in smoothly with the new trio of targets. The Ravens already look far better this year than last year.

White knows that the Ravens dominated the Bills in Week 1.

Then there is the Ravens defence, although it is hard to judge from Sunday's stroll. Baltimore's loss enabled the Buffalo Bills to reach the playoffs for the first time in 18 years.

Baltimore: Flacco and the Ravens offense took almost an entire half of football to get into a groove, and by then it was too late.

Baltimore running back Kenneth Dixon (knee) and cornerback Maurice Canady (thigh) missed Tuesday's practice, while tight end Hayden Hurst (foot) and defensive tackle Willie Henry (hernia) remain out after missing Week 1. Andy Dalton was as strong as ever and AJ Green continues to be excellent at WR. The Ravens never led the game on Thursday night, after Green's hot start.




A second-half comeback wasn't almost enough as the Cincinnati Bengals held on for a 34-23 victory, riding a dominant start led by Andy Dalton's four touchdown passes. With four touchdown receptions through one-and-a-half games, Green is well on his way to being one of the league leaders in 2018. Another performance like that is needed to stop Flacco and his talented wide receivers.

Their 21 points through 17 minutes were more than the Bengals scored in 10 of their 16 games last season. As long as the result on Thursday night isn't the same as the one from the Steelers-Browns game in Week 1, one of these teams will have sole possession of division lead after Thursday. 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.

Most fans are aware that the Ravens are more known for their defense rather than they are for their offense.

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.

In the Touchdown markets we look to Joe Mixon.

His first and third touchdowns came in the end zone, with the third TD being a clutch reception on third-and-goal.
