Unbeaten Cincinnati Bengals still searching for true identity - AFC North

Two touchdowns in a full game is a pretty nice night, but Green wanted more. For more data and analysis from the game, utilize our Premium Stats 2.0 dashboard to expand your knowledge on the key players, signature stats and much more.

Bengals running back Joe Mixon went for a gutty 84 yards on 21 carries after twice coming out of the game with an injured knee. Baltimore's offense is probably somewhere in between what we've seen the past two weeks, which isn't much different from what they've shown the past few years. Dalton did have an interception earlier on in the game that was nearly taken back for a touchdown but he was able to make a good tackle on the defender to prevent him from scoring and recovered nicely for the remainder of the game.

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.

So which side should you back for Ravens vs. Bengals and which crucial x-factor determines who wins?

Terrell Suggs still has it.

The Bengals also got off to a winning start on Sunday, and in doing so have released their new secret weapon in Joe Mixon.

In a Thursday interview with rapper Sway, Eminem got candid about the backlash, saying he now believes he crossed a line by including the slur.

A second-half comeback wasn't almost enough as the Cincinnati Bengals held on for a 34-23 victory, riding a dominant start led by Andy Dalton's four touchdown passes. On two drives, Baltimore's defense got penalties on third downs to keep Cincinnati going, and the Bengals ended up scoring on each. They couldn't, allowing quarterback Andy Dalton to attempt throws he never would have tried if Mosley were back there. He left in the first half and briefly returned in the second.

Wide receiver A.J. The Bengals vs. Ravens odds have flipped quickly.

By that time, the Ravens were in deep trouble. Carlos Dunlap continued his ridiculous ability to bat passes at the line of scrimmage, while Andrew Billings, Sam Hubbard, and Jordan Willis all cashed in on the action, generating plays. Then they must demonstrate, beginning next month, that they can challenge the Steelers, who have beaten the Bengals six consecutive times and in nine of their last 10 meetings. If the secondary can continue to play sticky in coverage, the Bengals will be a playoff contending team as long as Andy Dalton and co. hold up their end of the bargain. 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.

They have stayed the course with Lewis and Dalton, and they could be formidable once more.

Andy Dalton kept the Ravens out of the playoffs a year ago by throwing a long touchdown pass.
