On the road facing Andrew Luck in his comeback game, Andy Dalton completed 75% of his passes and led his team to 17 fourth quarter points, sealing their 34-23 victory.

As a result of the Bengals' awesome first half play, especially that of Dalton, many historical comparisons of this team have been stated, but many are also tempering their expectations. The line was a huge problem last season, unable to open holes for the running game or give Dalton time. Past year in the season opener at Cincinnati, the Ravens picked off Dalton four times, matching his career high, and gave Cincinnati its first opening shutout in club history 20-0.

If the Bengals can continue to power turnovers, a proper defense would possibly possibly perchance be on the verge of turning correct into a right one in Cincinnati. It harassed Joe Flacco early and often and came up with just enough big plays late to hang on. Bengals are 7-6. In debut under first-year defensive coordinator Don Martindale, Ravens didn't allow first down until third quarter vs. Buffalo.

On Thursday night, Dalton threw four touchdown passes in the first half alone - three to wide receiver A.J.

Cincinnati needed to go only 16 yards for its first touchdown, with Andy Dalton finding Green for a 4-yard score on the fourth play of the scoring drive. He finished the game 24-of-42 passing for 265 yards.

His first completion in a drive that got the Ravens within a score was to the free agent signing.

Down by 21 points, the Ravens made a run at it behind Joe Flacco, who threw a pair of touchdown passes. A field goal by Randy Bullock extended the Bengals' lead to eight with just under three minutes remaining.

The Bengals are two games into the season and remain somewhat of a mystery.

After a first-quarter interception, his 75th since the 2013 season for the second-most in the league, Flacco tightened up and nearly pulled off an impressive comeback until Bengals safety Shawn Williams forced a turnover to effectively end the game. Geno Atkins had two sacks and was close to having two more.

With out powerful working offensively and the Ravens defense buckling down, the Bengals found a methodology to salvage functions and put the game away. Alex Collins had only 13 touches but made the majority with some nifty tackle-shaking moves en route to 90 yards from scrimmage, including a career-best 55 receiving. Dalton went 21 of 28 passes for 243 yards with two TDs and passer rating of 109.7 vs Colts.
