1 of 3

Here are some of the most notable statistics from the Cincinnati Bengals’ 34-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens:

*The Bengals came into Sunday with a league-best 22.5 percent third-down conversion rate allowed at home. They held the Ravens to 4/15 (26.67 percent) and 17 first downs, three of which came on penalties.

*The Ravens’ history is they bounce-back after getting blown out. The Ravens are 9-0 in games following a loss by double digits, but they’ve now lost two-straight games by a combined 48 points to the Bengals and New England Patriots last week.

*Coming into Sunday, the Bengals had a 17.7 average margin of victory at home, and just got below that average with a 17-point win over the Ravens.

*Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick came int Sunday with one career interception, but got two, including a pick-6 off of Joe Flacco.

*The Bengals defense allowed just a 3.36 yards-per-play average after surrendering just 222 yards on 66 plays.

*With four interceptions thrown by Andy Dalton, he now has seven in two games vs. the Ravens this year. He had gone 131 passing attempts since his last INT before his 4-pick performance Sunday.

*Looking to utilize Dalton’s mobility more, the Bengals called three zone-read plays in which Dalton kept the ball and ran for 9+ yards on his first two attempts and scored the go-ahead TD in the third-quarter to put Cincinnati ahead for good.
