After harassing quarterbacks for most of the season, the Ravens have totaled just three sacks in their past four games. Rediscovering their once potent pass rush won't be easy against the Cincinnati Bengals. Third-year Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, who has thrown for 31 touchdowns and 4,015 passing yards this season, has only been sacked 29 times, partly because he has one of the NFL's fastest releases. This season, Dalton on average has attempted a pass within 2.23 seconds of the snap in Cincinnati's West Coast passing attack, according to Pro Football Focus.

There wasn't much unpacking of the Ravens Week 1 loss to Cincinnati, given the Ray Rice story's explosion the following day. But the farther the team gets from that season-opening loss to the now 3-0 Bengals, the better it looks. I don't want to spoil my Week 3 Power Rankings, but Cincinnati might be the best team in the NFL. If I had a contract, it would obligate me to preface any mention of quarterback Andy Dalton by saying he hasn't won a playoff game. Now that I've said that, I'll add that he's still being Andy Dalton, with 240 yards passing per game and two touchdowns.

When Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was drafted in the second round three years ago, his arrival was accompanied by many questions surrounding a lack of ideal size and arm strength. Much like Dalton, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had to deal with critics. Specifically, whether his game would translate from small-school Delaware when he was drafted in the first round six years ago. Now, Dalton has launched a similar career route to Flacco. Both quarterbacks started in their rookie seasons and both have gone on to reach the playoffs every year since entering the NFL. Heading into Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium, Dalton is emerging as an increasingly dangerous passer for the AFC North's first-place Bengals.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton took what the Ravens' depleted secondary gave him in the passing game for more than three quarters. When Cincinnati fell behind in the fourth quarter, he took advantage of that soft coverage for the game-winning blow. Dalton hit wide receiver A.J. Green for a 77-yard touchdown to give the Bengals a 23-16 lead, a play that placed an unfair spotlight on cornerback Chykie Brown and the Ravens' undermanned secondary, which spent the entire game trying to contain the Bengals' deep threats.

Stopping second year quarterback Andy Dalton is a major key for the Ravens if they are to beat the Cincinnati Bengals Monday in the season opener. As a rookie last season, Dalton engineered four fourth quarter comeback victories. He set a Bengals rookie record with 3,398 yards passing, one of only five rookies in NFL history to top 3,000 yards. Can Dalton get better even if this is supposed to be the year for the sophomore jinx? “A lot better, if we work at it the right way, and I know we will,” said Dalton.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Andy Dalton threw for a touchdown and ran for two more, including the go-ahead score in the third quarter, as sixth-ranked TCU downed No.24 Oregon State 30-21 on Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium. Dalton went 17-for-27 with 175 yards and two interceptions and had 15 carries for 64 yards for the Horned Frogs, who went 12-0 in the regular season last year but lost to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl. Dalton threw three interceptions in that game after throwing only five in the regular season.

While his fellow defensive backs chase after Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver A.J. Green and fourth-year wide-outs Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell on Sunday, Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard will keep his eyes on Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati's second-year tight end. “He's very athletic. The guy can catch, he can run, he can block,” Pollard said. “He's willing to stick his nose in there, so we have to make sure we know where he's at.” Gresham is tied for second on the Bengals with 29 receptions, and his four touchdown catches are second to Green, who has six in nine games.

Much has been made about the development of Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton, and rightfully so. The 35th overall pick in the draft in April, Dalton's 14 touchdown passes are the most by a rookie in a season's first nine contests since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. And he joined former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino as the only rookies to register 100-plus passer ratings in each of his first two starts. But equally as important as been the emergence of rookie wide receiver A.J. Green, who leads NFL rookies in catches (41)

Kevin Cowherd Bengals 21, Ravens 17 Ravens are still banged up with nothing to play for except momentum going into the playoffs. Same situation for Bengals, but they're at home. Edward Lee Bengals 21, Ravens 20 Only the Ravens have something to play for - a remote chance to move up to the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs. But they haven't dispelled their history of lackadaisical showings on the road, and Cincinnati Bengals are an emerging team that is still rolling from knocking the Pittsburgh Steelers out of the postseason.

The last time that Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco squared off against the Cincinnati Bengals, he trudged off the field with an aching left knee and a frustrated look on his face. Besides absorbing brutal hits from Bengals pass rushers, Flacco was intercepted three times, with his final one returned for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter of a 34-17 road loss in December. The defeat in their season finale prevented the Ravens from reaching the NFL playoffs. Despite winning the game, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton wasn't feeling much better than Flacco after an uneven performance in which he threw four interceptions.

Jerry Angelo spent a decade as the general manager of the Chicago Bears, but he is probably best known in Baltimore as the guy who botched that would-be draft-night trade with the Ravens three years ago. We haven't heard from Angelo in a while as he has been out of the league for a couple of years. But this week, Angelo, once again, did not endear himself to the Ravens and their fans -- or their quarterback. The ex-NFL exec, who now contributes to The Sideline View, ranked the NFL's starting quarterbacks for the website this week.

The last time Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton squared off against the Ravens' defense, he left M&T Bank Stadium thoroughly flustered. Dalton was harassed into several mistakes, including three interceptions, and was sacked five times. Although he finished the Ravens' 20-17 overtime victory on Nov. 10 with 274 passing yards and two touchdowns, he completed just 24 of 51 passes, a season-low 47.1 completion percentage. Now, Dalton is looking like an altogether different quarterback for the AFC North division champion Bengals heading into Sunday's regular season finale against the Ravens at Paul Brown Stadium.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Josh Kirkendall, who blogs about the Bengals for Cincy Jungle . MV: The Bengals are no longer the Bungles, having gone to the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time in decades. With a big cushion in the AFC North, they are poised to make it three in a row this season.

Because doing a full, 32-team list of power rankings is too much work for a Monday afternoon, I will rank the top 11 teams in the NFL after each exciting football Sunday (that's where the "first and 10" comes in). Here's the balance of power heading into Monday night's Week 10 finale between the Packers and Vikings: 1. Packers: America will be treated to Aaron Rodgers on 'MNF' as the Packers look to remain undefeated. 2. 49ers: San Francisco is the only other team with fewer than two losses after beating the New York Giants.

When the Ravens visit Paul Brown Stadium Sunday, they will serve as a visible reminder of the Cincinnati Bengals' worst loss of the season. The Ravens walloped the Bengals, 44-13, in the first of two Monday night games on Sept. 10, one of two times this season that Cincinnati lost by 10 points or more. (The Cleveland Browns beat the Bengals, 34-24, on Oct. 21.) The 31-point rout was Cincinnati's worst result since Jan. 3, 2010 when the New York Jets beat them 37-0. That's why defensive tackle Geno Atkins didn't disagree with the notion that the 9-6 Bengals owe the 10-5 Ravens one. “Oh yeah,” Atkins said during a conference call with Baltimore media Wednesday.

Dolphins 22, Bengals 20 Strategy: The Bengals want to be balanced offensively. They run a single-back offense and often use two tight ends to create mismatches. They use 2013 first-round pick Tyler Eifert all over the formation while Jermaine Gresham is usually a traditional in-line tight end. They have a rhythm passing game with quarterback Andy Dalton taking shorter drops to get the ball out quickly. The Bengals run a 4-3 base defense and keep opposing quarterbacks on their toes with a variety of looks, blitzing on one play and dropping seven men into zone coverage on the next.

Those old jokes about Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown supposedly being a miser too cheap to spend what it takes to win no longer seem to apply. Brown has spent a lot of money expanding his scouting department in recent years, and he made another hefty investment this week. The old-school, hands-on owner rewarded Pro Bowl defensive tackle Geno Atkins with a five-year contract extension worth $54.755 million, including a $15 million signing bonus, making him the second-highest paid defensive tackle in NFL history behind Ravens Pro Bowl lineman Haloti Ngata . Atkins is regarded as the scourge of the AFC North, shooting gaps and bull-rushing blockers to set a franchise record with 12.5 sacks to go with 15 tackles for losses and four forced fumbles last season.
