Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens 10/13/2019
The Bengals were on the edge of victory, but it slipped through their grasp when they ended with a 26-23 scoreboard against the Arizona Cardinals. This upcoming matchup will surely be payback time, especially for players who pumped in the quality effort for the previous game. Andy Dalton shone bright with his 27/38 and 262 passing yards, giving hope with his 2 tossed TDs. Joe Mixon took charge of 19 carries for a total of 93 yards, but unfortunately, he didn’t cross the end zone. Tyler Boyd racked up 123 receiving yards via 10 catches. The Bengals ran with the ball for 23 out of 62 plays; obviously rushing is not their go-to play. Even though the Bengals racked up 21 first downs, they were set back by 7 penalties which subtracted 60 yards.
Nevertheless, they still gained a total of 370 yards. For their defensive efforts, the Bengals held the opponent to 20 out of 32 completion attempts. They weren’t able to limit as much though- the opponent still ended up with a 63 % completion rate plus 514 yards. The Bengals are on a freefall. They have good players, but their offensive output is still lacking. Ranked as one of the worst scoring teams in the league, the Bengals need to reassess their game plan. While it’s too late to take the season, it’s never too late to learn new lessons.

Willie Snead IV held up his end of the receivers’ department as he caught the ball 4 times for a total of 51 yards. The Ravens were rushing for 40 out of 73 plays. This is a strong indicator that they are confident with their ground game.
The Ravens chalked up 22 first downs but were disadvantaged by 11 penalties at 92 yards. The Ravens didn’t have that tight of a decent, still allowing their opponent 21 out of 31 throw attempts for a completion rate of 68%. They allowed a total of 269 yards and 2 forced turnovers. The Ravens are well-known this season as a rush-dependent team. If they’re able to keep up with their rush dominance and improve their passing and throwing game, they’ll be one heck of a team to beat!
