20-0.

Controlled the clock.

 

Generated turnovers.

Leaving Cincinnati with a road Division W.

 

Despite losing Woodhead, and Z. Smith..... just a huge performance.

 

Really loved the commitment they showed to running the ball. If they do that with consistency, they are going to win plenty of games.

Love the 17 pass attempts by Flacco. Good blue print. Obviously won't always get 5 turnovers, and will throw more than 17 times. But keeping that number reasonable is a key to this season.

The Bengals looked horrendous. Lots and lots of good stuff from the Ravens today, but I also think the Bengals are much worse than I thought.

33 yards receiving on one drive for Woodhead.  Man I hope we can get him back on the field and keep him there soon, it looked really promising.

42 carries today. Average was only 3.7 but they didn't lose some yardage late when Cinci knew they were running.

Hope that Woodhead is back sooner than later.

So offense looked mostly bad, but the defense is swarming.

Just dont screw up on offense, take advantage of FP and turnovers. Profit.

Offense looked bad? I wouldn't say bad is the right adjective. (not that they looked great but it wasn't a dumpster fire by any mean)

Offense didn't need to do anything, especially after the big play followed up by crazy short field. Was great that we were able (and willing) to run effectively when that's all we needed to do in the 3rd quarter. Run clock and flip field position.

Some days, all the offense is gonna need to do is score once and make sure every other drive ends in a kick of some kind.

It's also unfair to expect perfection from the offense when Flacco just got back to work like a week ago.

The offense didnt have to do much and I guess thats the key. It wasnt a terrible performance by any measure.

Big play to Maclin. Good use of Woodhead while he was available. 

 

D is money and the special teams are something we know we can count on.

 

Offense will be an issue, but well timed strikes will be enough with the surrounding units.

Brilliant play call.

 

Flacco said after the game that they knew they would come on a zero blitz.  Knew you just had to win at the line, which Maclin did.

Can't overstate the 42 carries.  Not like you ran for 200+ yards but it was the commitment. 

 

I think the line will get better and Cinci has a very good front 7, even without Burfict but still, the line has to improve.

Zrebiec tweets:

 

 

Flacco acknowledged he was out of rhythm a bit but otherwise he felt comfortable.

 

Ravens RB Danny Woodhead didn't have much to say about hamstring injury. Said it will get checked out when team returns home.

 

Flacco audibled into that play on Maclin TD. "He got to what he thought would be successful and the rest is history,” Maclin said
