Live coverage



Fourth quarter:

The Ravens couldn't beat Cincinnati in Week 2 with Joe Flacco starting (and C.J. Mosley mostly absent). With Lamar Jackson starting in Week 11, they get a 24-21 win at home. Is that enough to start a quarterback conversation in Baltimore? — Jonas Shaffer

With 47 carries for 252 yards today, Ravens have annihilated their previous season best for rushing yards (35 carries for 123 yards vs. Tennessee).— Jonas Shaffer

LT Ronnie Stanley tried to make it to the sideline before collapsing near the midfield logo. It's been a painful day for him. — Jonas Shaffer

Third quarter:

Because anything is possible, Colin Kaepernick has the single-game rushing record for a quarterback with 181 yards. Lamar Jackson has 17 carries for 102 yards. — Jonas Shaffer

The Lamar Jackson offense may be out of step with the modern NFL, but it's worth noting the #Ravens have big advantages on yards, first downs and time of possession in this game. If not for the int., this would be a clear success (against a lousy defense, to be fair). — Childs Walker

John Ross, who had nine catches all season, beats Marlon Humprey for an impressive 22-yard touchdown. Bengals coaching box next to us explodes in ecstasy. It's 20-13, pending XP. — Jonas Shaffer

Ravens decided not to cover TE Matt Lengel, and Cincinnati has its first lead, 14-13. Bengals made quick work of the short field. — Jonas Shaffer

The Ravens had no one covering running back Joe Mixon along the left sideline and the Bengals failed to snap the ball and then called time out. You can't make this stuff up. — Mike Preston

Second quarter:

At halftime, Lamar Jackson is 8-for-11 for 76 yards and has 10 carries for 64 yards. The Ravens have 26 carries so far, more than in all but four games this season. — Jonas Shaffer

Biggest adjustment Ravens have made from their first game against the Bengals is cutting off short timing passes like slants or quick hitches. Ravens DB's have been more aggressive and physical. — Mike Preston


Ravens are averaging 4.5 yards per play against maybe the NFL's worst defense. The high-volume running game affects the average, but the Ravens entered Sunday averaging 5.2 yards per play -- 28th in the NFL. — Jonas Shaffer

Bengals strike back with a goal-line touchdown by Joe Mixon, and it's 7-7. Silver lining: At this point in Week 2, the Ravens were down 21-0. — Jonas Shaffer

The #Ravens D has controlled Cincy so far, but the field-position battle is tilting in Bengals' favor. — Childs Walker

First quarter:

Lamar Jackson's first NFL pass as a starter is a completion to Nick Boyle. It took only 14 plays to get there. — Jonas Shaffer

The Ravens already have as many rushing yards (66) as they did in their Week 2 loss to Cincinnati and more than in their Week 9 loss to Pittsburgh. — Jonas Shaffer

The Bengals are certainly trying the same formula teams have used against the Ravens D over the last month. Lots of quick throws inside 10 yards. But with Green and Eifert out, they're short on personnel. — Childs Walker
