It wasn't until the Cincinnati Bengals were forced to abandon the running game, and when they entered the red zone when the offense began struggling. As a unit they took part in 72 snaps, generating 322 net yards and averaging 4.7 yards/play. Cincinnati outgained the Ravens on the ground 129-122 and generated 20 first downs -- nine rushing, 10 passing. Here's a breakdown on how many snaps each offensive player took part in (we'll have defense soon).
