Ravens running attack hasn't materialized, and neither has the expected playing time

Ignore the Ravens defense’s first-half no-show, forget about the Cincinnati Bengals’ four sacks and focus on only one stat, and the Ravens’ loss Thursday night becomes, in hindsight, a “Well, duh” outcome. Quarterback Joe Flacco passed 55 times in the 34-23 loss at Paul Brown Stadium. He has finished...

OPEN THREAD: Sunday NFL Football

OPEN THREAD: Sunday NFL Football

A look at all of the Week 2 action on a loaded Sunday of NFL football. The Bengals are 2-0 after their big win over the Ravens on Thursday. That means we get a full Sunday to watch and enjoy the rest of the NFL while Cincinnati gets a much-needed day of rest. Among today’s action is a big AFC clash between the Steelers and Chiefs, a game Bengals fans will have a keen eye on. A Pittsburgh loss would give Cincinnati effectively a two-game lead in the race for the AFC North crown. Later, the Patriots and Jaguars face off in a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship, making this arguably...

Fantasy football sits and starts for Week 2

Fantasy football sits and starts for Week 2

Who should you start on Sunday to make sure you go 2-0 in fantasy football like the Bengals have in real football? The Bengals kicked off Week 2 by defeating the Ravens on Thursday Night Football. Like most NFL fans though, you probably have another team you also hold in high regard, your fantasy team. It would be a disservice to ignore that team, so here are the players you should sit and start in Week 2 for fantasy football. Must starts Philip Rivers (Chargers QB): This one is pretty much entirely matchup based. Did you see what Joe Flacco and the Ravens did to the Bills in Week 1? Flacco...

C.J. Mosley's absence hurts the Ravens defense on the field — and before the snap

When Dean Pees retired and Don “Wink” Martindale was named Ravens defensive coordinator in January, inside linebacker C.J. Mosley’s job title did not change. He has been the defense’s quarterback since midway through his rookie year. Joe Flacco’s game-day responsibilities have varied little throughout...

Five Things We Learned from the Ravens' 34-23 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals

We saw a more realistic picture of Joe Flacco, good and bad. For all the positive vibes around Flacco this year, he had not faced sustained pressure in a game situation since last December. That changed in a hurry Thursday night, and the results reminded us why so many fans and analysts doubt the...

Doomed from the start in road opener, Ravens fall behind by 21 points, lose to Bengals, 34-23

As Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco took the field early in the second quarter Thursday night, it was hard to say which was more daunting: the past, the present or the possibility of a bright near future. For as long as he has led the franchise in Baltimore, Flacco has struggled against the Cincinnati...

Bengals leap out in front, keep Ravens from coming back in 34-23 win on Thursday Night Football

Bengals leap out in front, keep Ravens from coming back in 34-23 win on Thursday Night Football

A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, and Andy Dalton picked the Ravens’ defense apart in the first half, while rookie pass rusher Sam Hubbard put the pressure on Joe Flacco and the Baltimore offense. The Baltimore Ravens, still bitter about getting knocked out of the playoffs by last minute heroics last December, visited Paul Brown Stadium in search of revenge on Thursday Night Football. Fresh off of a thumping of the Bills, the Ravens looked to do the same to the Bengals. They didn’t. The Ravens kept it interesting, but the Bengals kept Baltimore at arm’s length to win the game 34-23. That...

Mike Preston's report card after the Ravens' 34-23 loss to the Bengals

Quarterbacks: Joe Flacco made some plays by being elusive and moving around in the pocket to gain time. He didn't always have protection and easily could have had two more interceptions on top of the two he did throw if the Bengals’ defensive backs could catch. It was a typical Flacco game. He...

The veteran QB will try to do what Joe Flacco did last week: shred the Bills The Buffalo Bills meet the Los Angeles Chargers this weekend, as the Bills look to claim a victory in their home opener to salvage a 1-1 start to the season. These teams met last November in what was an ugly game reminiscent of Buffalo’s 47-3 loss last weekend to the Baltimore Ravens: The Chargers harassed quarterback Nathan Peterman all afternoon, forcing the rookie to throw five first-half interceptions in an eventual 54-24 Chargers victory. This weekend, the Bills once again turn to a rookie quarterback making...

The Ravens allowed just one sack Sunday, but the offensive line sees room for improvement

One could argue that a factor in the Ravens’ 47-3 whipping of the Buffalo Bills in Sunday’s regular-season opener was the protection that quarterback Joe Flacco received in the pocket. He completed 73.5 percent of his passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns and was sacked only once before he...
