Five Takeaways From The Ravens' Loss To The Bengals

"A lot of people probably underestimate us still", said Mixon.

The Ravens (1-0) opened this season with a 47-3 win over the Bills and turned their focus to that one play from last December that lingers in the back of their minds. 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.

The Ravens retooled their receiving group during the offseason to give Joe Flacco a better chance to shine, and the results last week were profound.

Two touchdowns in a full game is a pretty nice night, but Green wanted more.

That Dalton showed up in the first half on Thursday night, and the veteran quarterback was able to orchestrate the Bengals to a lead that proved to be too much to overcome.

And when the Bengals returned to Cincinnati after a second straight losing season, owner Mike Brown chose to give Lewis a two-year extension based in part upon the Bengals' 31-27 win that day. He finished the game with five receptions for 69 yards and his three scores. But the Bengals gave him a tough time early, sacking him on each of Baltimore's first three possessions and forcing a pass that was picked off. The Bengals look poised for a 2-0 start to the season, but remember, there is still over a half of football left to be played.

"We did all that and he still made some great plays", coach John Harbaugh said. Mosley carted off with a knee injury after the first series of the game.

Every other rookie - 0.33-spherical snatch Sam Hubbard - obtained a sack that modified into as soon as if truth be told one of Four for a Bengals pass dawdle that careworn Flacco all evening.

"They didn't play flawless", Harbaugh said. Dalton had a solid performance, throwing for 243 yards and two touchdowns.

Cin - FG Bullock 28, 2:59. Mixon gutted through a painful knee injury to total 84 yards rushing in the game, including a 21-yarder late that helped keep the Ravens at arm's distance. They've overcome a 21-point deficit to win a game only once in their history, beating the Arizona Cardinals 30-27 in 2011.

PASSING - Baltimore, Flacco 32-55-2-376. The Ravens defense sent quarterback Nathan Peterman to the bench (where he arguably should have been anyway) and made Josh Allen's debut far from memorable in rainy weather in Baltimore.
