The Bengals got off to a quick start against the Ravens, and then the defense saved the day. The Bengals offense was awesome in the first half, and for the game out-gained the Ravens 369-215 yards, and 35 of the Raven's came on a meaningless last second play. Coles finished the game as the Bengals top receiver, catching 6 passes for 72 yards, and Ochocinco caught 5 for 66. Cedric Benson had 34 carries for 117 yards and a touchdown, not a great average, but he sure did get stuffed a lot late. Carson finished with a 91.0 passer rating, better than Flacco's 48.3, on 20/33 passing for 224 yards and a touchdown. The Bengals possessed the ball for 40:00 to the Ravens 20:00.
The defense really stepped up with a huge sack before the two minute warning, forcing the Ravens to use their second time out with 2:18 on the clock and a big, long third down facing them. Sacks are huge in 2 minute drills. It was 4-down territory, though, and on 3rd and 19 Flacco was sacked by Geathers.
