Ravens loss to Bengals on TNF is completely embarrassing

After Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton told his huddle the next drive was the one that was going to win it, Mixon got hemmed in on a run to the right on first-and- ten from the Ravens 37, reversed field and took it outside for a 21-yard run that set up Randy Bullock's 28-yard field goal with 2:59 left for the all-important eight-point lead. The Ravens dominated in first downs (26 to 10), total yards (369-153), passing yards (252 to 70), and yards per play (5.0 to 2.5). Both the offense and defense made good adjustments.

After limiting LeSean McCoy to 22 yards on seven carries last week, the Ravens have turned their attention toward Joe Mixon, the Bengals' second-year running back who is front-and-center in their overhauled offense.

The Ravens switched up their coverage on Green but couldn't stop him in the opening half. But at the same time, so much hype is (understandably) sent towards the likes of Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., and the ungodly Antonio Brown that Green can occasionally get lost in the shuffle. 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. Later, Flacco short-hopped a fourth-down pass intended for receiver Willie Snead, and he had another back-foot throw that should have been an interception dropped by Bengals defensive back Dre Kirkpatrick.

Some were surprised when the Bengals stuck with Marvin Lewis as their coach after consecutive losing seasons, with records of 7-9 past year and 6-9-1 in 2016. Upset that he fumbled twice during a 34-23 win at Indianapolis on Sunday, he caught everything near him during the Bengals' early surge. Dalton was sharp Thursday night, with four touchdown passes and no interceptions. The Bengals were tested on the road last week and came out on the winning end, while the Ravens were basically still in preseason mood against a bad Buffalo Bills team, which means that the Bengals should be more ready to get after it on Thursday night. They haven't won a playoff game since the 1990 season, the sixth-longest drought in National Football League history. He had five after the first two weeks in 2015 ... They're the first team to score at least 34 points in each of their first two games since the 2013 Broncos, who reached the Super Bowl, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Mosley was diagnosed with a bone bruise after being carted off the field, and an MRI after the game revealed no ligament damage, according to coach John Harbaugh. They return to action at home against the Denver Broncos Sept. 23. 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).
