"You better bounce back quick on a Thursday night and we didn't do it quick enough tonight", Flacco said. The Ravens won 47-3 last week against the hapless Buffalo Bills, while the Bengals rallied from two touchdowns down to defeat the Colts in Indianapolis.

Hope did arrive, on the backs of an improved Flacco and a resilient but depleted defense, both sparking a Ravens rally. But in the team's last gasp, Flacco could not deliver the excellence he had supplied in abundance just days earlier. The Bengals defense will need to be physical and force turnovers if they want to take down their division foe and get off to an impressive 2-0 start to the 2018 season.

Of course, the last time these two teams met, the Bengals beat the Ravens in Baltimore in Week 17 past year on a late touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to Tyler Boyd.

The 70,507 fans at M&T Bank Stadium were on their feet, cheering for one more defensive stop that would put the Ravens back in the playoffs. Dalton had a solid performance, throwing for 243 yards and two touchdowns. A failed two-point conversion kept the Ravens at arm's length, down 28-23. A crucial third-down penalty on cornerback Tavon Young averted a three-and-out for Cincinnati, and it marched downfield with much of the precision it had earlier.

That made it three catches, three scores for Green and a shocking 21-0 lead for the Bengals. Boyd lined up slightly behind Green split to the left and when they crossed to begin their routes they got the matchup they wanted.

In Week 2 against the Ravens in primetime, however, Green was the spotlight.

Initial reports said three boats were overturned when the slide caused powerful waves. Zakynthos is also known as Zante in Western Europe.

On consecutive drives, the offense gave the ball away, first on a failed fourth-down attempt that running back Javorius "Buck" Allen probably should have converted and then on a pop-fly interception by Flacco.

Mixon finished with 84 yards on 21 carries and quarterback Dalton converted his four first-half touchdowns to a 107.7 passer rating. After a three-and-out against the Mosley-led defense, he found the Mosley-less defense to be as different as night and day.

The Bengals secondary, which was led by cornerback William Jackson III, took advantage of the struggling Flacco, as they hauled in two interceptions and forced another 10 to fall incomplete.

Young, working against the seven-time Pro Bowl selection in the slot, could not keep up, too far behind to lay even a finger. On third-and-goal at the Ravens' 7-yard line, Green caught one in the end zone for his third touchdown.

Cincinnati got off to a fast start-possibly emphasized by Baltimore, who appeared to slowly realize that the team was not playing against Nathan Peterman and the Bills anymore-highlighted by A.J. Green catching three touchdown passes in the first 17 minutes, the first three-TD game of the wide receiver's career.

But then in the second half they became, well, the Bengals again as the Ravens showed some signs of life, at times. Up 21-0, Cincinnati already had almost as many yards of total offense (151) as the Bills finished with Sunday (153).
