Cincinnati Bengals did something early on in their matchup with the Ravens, that they couldn’t accomplish against the Colts. The got yards, and better yet, they scored a touchdown. That is something they couldn’t do at all against the Indianapolis Colts. They couldn’t even do it against the Ravens in week one as they settled for 5 field goals to go up 15-0 after one half.

Mohammed Sanu and Greg Little played a huge part gaining 69 yards and Andy Dalton scoring on a one yard rushing touchdown, with a little help from Domata Peko at fullback. The Bengals offense has had a good first quarter and if they can play like they did in the first three games of the season, this could be the game they break their slump.

The Bengals defense still looks tired from last weeks game early though as the Ravens were marched down the field themselves but just couldn’t convert on fourth and goal from the half yard line. The Paul Guenther bend but not break offense will not be good enough, they will need to come up with huge stops like they did against the Indianapolis Colts in the first half last week.

The Bengals will need to prove to their fans that they can get back on track and what better way against a divisional opponent. If they can find a way to separate themselves on the scoreboard, this could be the week that the Bengals find their way back to the win column.
