New, comments

Everyone is charged for the new season, foaming at the mouth with taglines like Destination: New Orleans. It's going to be the first time that Cincinnati reaches the playoffs in consectutive seasons since the early 80s. Then... On the first play from scrimmage, Joe Flacco fakes the handoff to Ray Rice and launches a 52-yard pass to Torrey Smith down the middle of the field.

The Bengals defense prevented the Ravens from picking up another first down, forcing Justin Tucker to convert a 46-yard field goal to give Baltimore a 3-0 lead.
