The title I think says it all.
The Bengals still have one more quarter to play in their Week 17 finale against the Ravens, but the damage has already been done.
Baltimore’s offense is now up to 350 yards after a 72-yard touchdown run from J.K. Dobbins. It’s the most the Bengals have ever allowed in a single game, per ESPN’s Ben Baby.

Breaks the record of 313 in a game against Kansas City in 313.
Still 1:45 left in the third quarter.
The NFL record for most rushing yards in a game is 423, which was set by the New York Giants...in 1950.
That’s right, the Ravens are on the verge of breaking a 71-year old record against the Bengals.
With Lamar Jackson, Dobbins, and Gus Edwards running at will and the game reaching a 35-point deficit, expect the rushing yardage to get near that 423 mark. At this point, 500 yards is very much in question.
But hey, maybe defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo deserves another chance next year to break the record again.
