A.J. Green scores 3 touchdowns on 5 catches in Bengals' win

A.J. Green scores 3 touchdowns on 5 catches in Bengals' win

Joe Flacco completed 25 of 34 passes for 236 yards with three touchdown passes in the rout. We know when you turn the ball over three times and don't force any, you will likely lose.

Andy Dalton and A.J. Green have played side by side long enough to start feeling a little bit like the old men in the room. Justin Tucker added two field goals in the half and Alex Collins had an 8-yard touchdown run to give Baltimore a commanding lead heading into halftime. Allen scored on the next play.

Green set the tone with touchdown catches of four, 28 and seven yards on consecutive possessions, a career high. With those new additions, a solid run game, and reliable play-making tight ends, the Ravens passing offense will take a huge leap forward this season, and you saw it take place first hand in week one. All they needed to do was beat the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals, whom they blanked 20-0 in Week 1.

The 30-year-old Dalton kept his magic going on Sunday, as he completed 21 of 28 passes for 243 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in a 34-23 season-opening victory versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Cincinnati built its 21-point lead by piling up 151 yards and 11 first downs. Flacco threw three touchdown passes, one to each of the newcomers: John Brown, Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead. That made the score 23-10, but the Bengals then responded with 24 unanswered points.

Dalton and Green rank fourth in active quarterback-pass catcher combinations with 56 touchdowns together, and second in quarterback-wide receiver combinations. Six minutes later, Green caught a slant, broke Young's tackle and scampered 32 yards past Eric Weddle to make it 14-0. Nearly exactly eight minutes later, the Bengals took the lead when Joe Mixon scored from one yard out. This is a game that could have spiraled out of control in years past, but Andy Dalton and Co. came through after playing like crap through most of the second half.

In the Touchdown markets we look to Joe Mixon.

Over 300 yards were allowed to a Colts team with the recovering arm of Andrew Luck.

Both the Ravens and Bengals had explosive offensive performances in Week 1 - how far can each of these teams go this season?

The Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons, and all of Green's future opponents in 2018 have certainly been put on notice after this jaw-dropping display of touchdown-scoring madness.

12-3 ATS in their last 15 against AFC North teams. We learned that this team really hasn't learned anything about winning comeback games.

18-7-2 ATS in their last 27 games in September. In truth numerous players over the years have come out against it, feeling that the short timespan between games takes a tough toll on the body. You also have to consider that Baltimore is 4-9 against the spread in the last 13 meetings in Cincinnati. They have a quick turnaround to Thursday night at home against Baltimore.
