Ravens seek to avenge season-ending loss to Bengals

The Baltimore Ravens carried good vibes all through training camp and the preseason, so their Week 1 blowout win over the Buffalo Bills continued that theme. They return to action at home against the Denver Broncos Sept. 23.

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. Twice, the Bengals got Green on a matchup with slot corner Tavon Young, and Green beat him for scores.

"I think from last season, winning the last two games gave us momentum", receiver A.J. Green said. AJ Green was the recipient of Dalton's other touchdown toss; he scored on a 38-yard reception in the third quarter and finished with six catches for 92 yards on eight targets.

Second-year running back Joe Mixon finished last week's performance with 17 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown. Green also caught a touchdown pass when matched up against cornerback Marlon Humphrey.

It also killed them on the ground as Baltimore's defensive line got pushed around with relative ease. Making it worse for the Ravens is the knee injury sustained by linebacker C.J. Mosley in the game, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. The Ravens have to hope Mosley's absence will not be a lengthy one.

It was also reported that Justin thanked some of the court officials for keeping their appearance in the courthouse quiet. So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY.

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.

Rookie linebacker Kenny Young stepped in for Mosley and played alongside Patrick Onwuasor, finishing with seven tackles. The Ravens were simply helpless against Green when he was in scoring distance, and his nose for the end zone will be critical for Cincinnati this year.

Defensively, the loss of Mosley was the death blow.

The Ravens' second possession ended with Flacco throwing a flat-footed interception that sailed on receiver Michael Crabtree, who was well covered anyway. It was clear he hadn't lost much as a player, but he had just four touchdowns in 2016. Pressure had a lot to do with it, but Flacco never looked to be in any rhythm in a stadium where he has historically struggled. There's no need to panic.

It's week two of the season, but this game already holds plenty of value. They're 5-14 in prime time games since 2011 - 0-5 on Sunday night, 2-5 on Monday night, 3-3 on Thursday night and 0-1 on Saturday night. Then they must demonstrate, beginning next month, that they can challenge the Steelers, who have beaten the Bengals six consecutive times and in nine of their last 10 meetings.
