The Baltimore Ravens continue to put their name among the elite teams in the NFL.
The Ravens improved to 7-3, further distancing themselves from the rest of the AFC North with their 34-20 win over their division rival Cincinnati Bengals.
The Ravens’ first drive went almost perfect – it ended on a Gus Edwards touchdown, but they lost Mark Andrews for the rest of the night, and possibly longer.
Cincinnati responded with a field goal, and in the second, Joe Mixon scored to give the Bengals a 10-7 lead. But Baltimore scored on back-to-back drives from unlikely sources: Nelson Agholor caught a 37-yard touchdown, and Rashod Bateman found the end zone, so the Ravens led, 21-10, at the half – all while Joe Burrow left the game with a wrist injury.
Cincinnati was with backup quarterback Jake Browning for the rest of the night, but he led a field goal drive to open the second half. Baltimore knocked back-to-back field goals, though, taking a 27-13 lead into the fourth. Baltimore was able to run some clock and hold the Bengals from scoring,
