After taking an early 15-0 lead over Baltimore, it looked as though the Bengals were going to cruise to an easy week 1 win.

Then the second half came, and so too did a 16-0 run by Baltimore to take the lead. Facing a Baltimore defense that had all the momentum behind a rocking Ravens crowd, Andy Dalton dropped a dime into the arms of AJ Green, who took it to the house to give Cincinnati the lead and ultimately the win.

"We had the look we wanted. A.J. [Green] had been telling me that he felt they were playing him soft and he could get by them, "Dalton said following the game. "There was a straight "go ball" and he made a great play. He tipped the ball into the air, caught it and kept on running. In a game like this you have to get your best players to make big plays."
