The Ravens have lost three straight, but they’re starting well against the Bengals.
Thanks in part to a costly penalty on the Bengals, they’re up 10-0 in the first quarter.
Their first touchdown was set up by a 48-yard pass interference penalty on Bengals safety Reggie Nelson. That put Joe Flacco in easy position for a touchdown pass to Dallas Clark.
The Ravens haven’t been what you’d call dynamic on offense lately, but they’ve staked Flacco to an early lead, and it appears they might have some success running inside today, which will certainly help.
