Flacco picked apart the Bengals secondary from start to finish. He opened the game with a 52-yard completion to Torrey Smith, but the Ravens were limited to only a field goal on their opening drive. They got the ball back only one minute later after a Bengal 3-and-out and marched down the field for a touchdown, taking a 10-0 lead.
Andy Dalton and the Bengals' offense fought back and answered with a field goal, but the Ravens' offense was too much as Baltimore scored another touchdown only five plays into the following drive. Dalton and the Bengals once again fought back, scoring a touchdown this time to take the game to halftime, 17-10.
The second half was a different story for the Bengals -- same scoring attack from the Baltimore offense, but with no response from Cincinnati. Instead, Andy Dalton threw an interception to Ed Reed that was returned for a touchdown, and Dalton fumbled in their own territory, giving the ball to Baltimore with a short field and setting up another touchdown.
Joe Flacco finished the night going 21-for-29 for 299 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Andy Dalton finished 22-for-37 with 221 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.
Cincinnati's BenJarvus Green-Ellis was the night's leading rusher with 91 yards on 18 carries.
