AJ Green has career night in little more than a quarter

A.J. Green is looking for a big finish vs. the Ravens at home

They've also been rewarded by positive plays from rookies Jessie Bates, who had his first interception against the Ravens, and Sam Hubbard, who notched his first sack.

It wasn't only the offense that had major issues early. And the Bengals were effective running the ball, too, with Joe Mixon (21 carries for 84 yards) and Giovani Bernard (6-27) averaging better than 4 yards a carry. The Ravens switched up their coverages on Green but couldn't stop him.

Dalton knocked the Ravens (1-1) out of postseason contention last season by throwing a 49-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd in the closing seconds of the final game in Baltimore. It was excused in Week 1 thanks to a lopsided win but they struggled even more Thursday night against the Bengals. On 11 targets, he completed eight passes for 74 yards with a touchdown and six first downs.

On Green's first touchdown, he ran a great route to the corner of the end zone and Andy Dalton zipped in a pass to him while moving to his right. Previous year the Bengals eliminated the Ravens from the playoffs in the final seconds and you can be guaranteed that the Ravens have not forgotten that. "They're one of the best defenses I go against every year, so it's always going to be a challenge". They also managed to outscore the Colts 17-0 in the fourth quarter on Sunday, finishing strong is a trend that wins games. Flacco finished 32-for-55 for 376 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and a passer rating of 76.0.

The victor of this game with move comfortably into the first-place spot for the division as the Steelers and Browns somehow managed to tie each other in Week 1. He had five after the first two weeks in 2015 ...

Green, the Cincinnati Bengals' star, put on a show for the "Thursday Night Football" fans tuning in.

The Ravens are 7-1 under Harbaugh in short-week Thursday games, and their Week 1 blowout helped them rest a few veterans. Harbaugh said an exam found no ligament damage, but Mosley could be sidelined for a while. Young linebackers Hardy Nickerson and Jordan Evans appeared to mostly fare fine with starting middle linebacker Preston Brown out because of an injury and Vontaze Burfict sitting out due to a suspension. Making it worse for the Ravens is the knee injury sustained by linebacker C.J. Mosley in the game, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. He left in the first half and briefly returned in the second. They return to action at home against the Denver Broncos Sept. 23. 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.
