Slow Start Offensively For Bengals And Ravens

Painful.

If aliens visited the planet Earth on Sunday morning and decided to take in the football game in Cincinnati, they're first impression may suggest that earthlings offer no offensive weapons to counter from an epic invasion -- though defensively Vontaze Burfict may cause brief hesitation.

The Cincinnati Bengals offensively have strung together two possessions going nine plays, 13 yards with each resulting in punts. Baltimore hasn't been that much more impressive, though they did post an opening 13-play possession that resulted in a punt with some help on a Dan Herron neutral zone infraction to sustain an otherwise scoreless series.

Four possessions by both offense, four punts with the Ravens picking up on offense with 3:52 remaining in the first quarter.
