The Cincinnati Bengals parlayed an explosive first half into a 34-23 win over the Baltimore Ravens in their home opener at Paul Brown Stadium on Thursday night.
Quarterback Andy Dalton picked up where he left off Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and went 24-of-42 passing for 265 yards and four touchdowns, three of which landed in the waiting arms of No. 1 wide receiver A.J. Green, to push the Bengals' record to 2-0.
Joe Flacco captained Baltimore's offense to less spectacular results and finished 32-of-55 for 377 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions as the Ravens dropped to 1-1 following a blowout of the Buffalo Bills.
