Three takeaways from the Bengals' win over the Ravens

They fired coordinator Ken Zampese and elevated Bill Lazor to interim leader of the offense. But even though the Bengals (2-0, 1-0 AFC North) are undefeated, their identity is a bit more confusing than their stat line. Ravens QB Joe Flacco had a strong game, going 25-for-34 for 236 yards and three touchdowns.

Those Broncos went to the Super Bowl and lost to Seattle. The Bengals took the contest and took sole possession of first place in week 2.

"I'm loving it, and I'm sure everyone else is loving it", said Tyler Boyd, who had a 14-yard touchdown catch. Then it was the tough running of Joe Mixon, who twice left the game with a knee injury. "The procedure is expected to sideline Mixon two weeks, per source".

Mixon finished with 84 yards rushing and one catch for 3 yards. They've overcome a 21-point deficit to win a game only once in their history, beating the Arizona Cardinals 30-27 in 2011. Robert Griffin III is inactive for the second straight game.

Inconsistency has been a trademark of the Bengals during head coach Marvin Lewis' tenure.

Lazor was elevated from interim coordinator and spent the offseason rewriting the playbook. And, as the Bengals have learned over the years, doing too many stupid things results in losing games. He's moved Dalton out of the pocket on misdirection plays. If the Bengals can win, a 2-0 start would be unusual.

Dalton has looked very comfortable in the new schemes. Ravens backup QB Lamar Jackson used periodically, mostly as decoy, in National Football League debut against Buffalo before taking over for Flacco in third quarter with score 40-0. "We've still got that bitter taste in our mouths". "I think that's where this offense is fortunate". It modified into as soon as impressive, and the form of safe that makes that that you just would possibly possibly perchance't relieve nonetheless surprise if Cincinnati is in the ruin ready for something greater than a day out - and loss - in the Wild Card Spherical.

For the majority of the game, Andy Dalton had plenty of time to exploit Baltimore's secondary. Up 21-0, Cincinnati already had almost as many yards of total offense (151) as the Bills finished with Sunday (153).

"The Bengals haven't won their first two games since 2015, when they went 12-4 and won the AFC North", the AP reported. Dalton got the ball out quickly in the first half and peppered his receivers with catchable targets, leading the Bengals offense into the end zone four times despite three drops from his receivers.
