PFF reviews the Cincinnati Bengals' Week 8 win over Baltimore Ravens - ESPN
After closing out the regular-season series sweep Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals have placed the Baltimore Ravens in their rearview mirror for now. The Ravens can't directly affect them the rest of this season. Let's take a quick peek at some of the ways our friends at Pro Football Focus analyzed and examined Cincinnati's Week 8 game.
As we move on from the Cincinnati Bengals' seventh game, here is a by-the-numbers look at the 27-24 win over the Baltimore Ravens: 12: Number of game-winning drives Andy Dalton has had in his career. That's tied for the third-most in the NFL since Dalton entered the league in 2011.
During the first couple weeks of the NFL season, when he was watching the games at home instead of playing, Greg Little knew that when he received another opportunity he had to make the most of it. He certainly did that on Sunday.
The NFL’s trading deadline is quickly approaching, and as many of you may know, there have been talks about a potential trade sending Ndamukong Suh from the Detroit Lions to the Cincinnati Bengals. This would send rookie cornerback, Darqueze Dennard to the Lions, along with a second-round draft pick. I will tell you why the Bengals should do everything in their power to make this trade happen.
Cincinnati Bengals did something early on in their matchup with the Ravens, that they couldn’t accomplish against the Colts. The got yards, and better yet, they scored a touchdown. That is something they couldn’t do at all against the Indianapolis Colts. They couldn’t even do it against the Ravens in week one as they settled for 5 field goals to go up 15-0 after one half.
The Ravens had a great opportunity to take control of the AFC North when they went up against the Cincinnati Bengals. Instead they fell in a tightly contested affair that would find all four teams of the division separated by half a game. Now, onto the grades:
Colt McCoy was the hero of tonight's big Washington win over Dallas, and so it figures that he'd be doing the run through of all the ESPN networks—given they hold the broadcast rights to Monday Night games, after all. Turns out a PR handler doesn't want McCoy talking to ESPN's Spanish-language Deportes network, though.
