A.J. Green's trio of touchdown for the Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Flacco and Andy Dalton

Joe Flacco and Andy Dalton

Reached playoffs three of those years and lost in first round.

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

The Ravens (1-1) were coming off one of their most impressive games, a 47-3 win over Buffalo that was the third-largest margin of victory in franchise history. They already can count Fejedelem's and Williams' plays as signs of a team that possesses a killer instinct.

But the Ravens' resurgence quickly faltered under Flacco. It was the fourth time he's thrown four touchdown passes in a game.

Cincinnati scored just nine points in the first two games of 2017 and was flattened at home by these same Ravens 20-0 in the season opener as quarterback Andy Dalton threw four interceptions and was sacked five times.

And you would've certainly believed that the same level of enthusiasm and determination to win should've been displayed by Baltimore entirely.

Again, Flacco tried to will Baltimore back into the game with this late drive, a 21-yard touchdown pass to John Brown. "We were gashing them a couple of times".

"We still have one (improvement) we need to make, one we haven't done a good job of in the first two games, which is making sure we close out football games", Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. With a dominating first half and a display of talent on both sides of the ball, the Bengals looked like a team that could compete with anyone.

MISSING MOSLEY: Ravens middle linebacker C.J. Mosley left in the first quarter with a bruised knee. "I think our guys brought it to them tonight", said rookie safety Jessie Bates, per the team's official website.

Ba - Andrews 1 pass from Flacco (Tucker kick),:08.

Bal - J.Brown 21 pass from Flacco (pass failed), 9:35.

Cin - FG Bullock 40, 2:25. With four new starters, the line has allowed only two sacks - none against the Ravens - and provided some lanes for Mixon, who is averaging 4.7 yards per carry. 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. 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.
