Ravens, Bengals back together after last seasons thriller

Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals: Thursday night spoils to go to the home team again

A failed two-point conversion kept the Ravens at arm's length, down 28-23. The Bengals offensive line has improved but look for the Ravens to try to take advantage of Bengals right tackle Bobby Hart, who was awful in the Bengals week one win over the Colts.

Geno Atkins (two sacks, four QB hits) repeatedly hounded Flacco, who completed 32 of 55 passes for 376 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions while struggling with his accuracy. The game can be watched on NFL Network and kicks off from Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati at 7:20 P.M.

After throwing four touchdowns in the game's first 27 minutes, Dalton finished the first half and began the second half hitting just three of 10 passes.

The Ravens never got out of the hole Green created for them. 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.

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.

The computer likes the Ravens in a close one. With the Steelers tying the Browns in Week 1, and nobody having a clue when Steelers star Le'Veon Bell will return from his long holdout, the victor of this game could have an early stranglehold on the keys to the division with a 2-0 start on the line. Upset that he fumbled twice during a 34-23 win at Indianapolis on Sunday, he caught everything near him during the Bengals' early surge. The 3 touchdown passes each went to newly added receivers for the team, Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Willie Snead.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Bengals forced three turnovers with two Joe Flacco interceptions and a fumble. 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. Andy Dalton was as strong as ever and AJ Green continues to be excellent at WR.

Rose, who overtook Dustin Johnson , joins Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald as the only Englishmen to reach No. 1. Only the top 30 advance to the Tour Championship, marking the first time Spieth has missed the event since turning pro.

"That was a great way to start tonight, to come out hot like we did to set the tone", Dalton said.

In the Touchdown markets we look to Joe Mixon.

It will mark Baltimore's first real test of the season.

On third down Eifert drew a pass interference call on safety Tony Jefferson in the end zone to bring the ball to the Baltimore 1.

But when Mixon saw nothing up the middle, he bounced it to the right but couldn't turn the corner and got dumped for a three-yard loss by cornerback Marlon Humphrey.

"John is a different type of player, just with his speed and what he does to defenders", Flacco said. But they squandered chance after chance to make the fourth quarter more manageable.

If there was positive to take away from this game, it's the success that Flacco had targeting his tight ends.
