Kevin Cowherd Ravens 27, Bengals 17 Joe Flacco loves the no-huddle offense - let's see if it scores points. Ray Lewis looks like the "after" shot in a Medifast ad, but the defense is still plenty good enough to intimidate opponents. Edward Lee Ravens 21, Bengals 17 The Bengals are rising, but they won't take off on the primetime stage in Baltimore. With the Bengals lacking a dangerous No. 2 receiver, the defense will contain A.J. Green, and Ray Rice will continue his success against the AFC North rivals.

The Cincinnati Bengals ran into a buzz saw named Tom Brady last Sunday night during an ugly loss to the New England Patriots. The 43-17 blowout raised questions about the Bengals' ability to defend elite offenses without injured Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the lineup. The Patriots piled up 505 yards of total offense against a Cincinnati defense that entered last week having allowed the fewest points in the NFL. In their first loss of the season, the Bengals (3-1) struggled mightily to contain Patriots tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Tim Wright, who had a combined 11 catches for 185 yards and two touchdowns.

The Cincinnati Bengals have emerged as one of the top feel-good stories - on and off the field - through three games. Undefeated and atop the AFC North standings, the Bengals are the current front-runners in the division race. They're ranked first in the NFL in yards per pass and fewest sacks allowed. Their defense has allowed the fewest points in the league. Away from the field, they have received an outpouring of support for defensive tackle Devon Still and his 4-year-old daughter, Leah.

Quarterback D Joe Flacco threw four interceptions. Enough said. Running backs A Halfback Ray Rice ran 16 times for 87 yards, but he touched the ball only 8 times per half. When Flacco is having a bad day, Rice, Willis McGahee and Le'Ron McClain need to carry the load. Rice was the Ravens' offense. Offensive line C- This group is good when the Ravens run the ball and use a lot of play action.

The Bengals rode the Wayback Machine on Sunday, all the way to last season. Grumble about the tactics, if you want. The win looks the same. You say the offense looks dysfunctional. The victory says the offense was patient. You say Carson Palmer isn't using his new toys. The win says too much playtime isn't good for the bottom line. At least we can agree on the defense. The defense was magnificent. Having coached defense in Baltimore and faced the Ravens too many times to count as Bengals coach, Marvin Lewis knows how to beat Baltimore.

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 Lindsay Patterson, who covers the Bengals for ESPN 1530 in Cincinnati . MV: Outside of that dud against the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago, the Bengals have been on a roll since their overtime loss to the Ravens in Week 10. What clicked for the new AFC North champs?

RAVENS PASSING GAME: The Ravens will unveil their new-look, up-tempo with quarterback Joe Flacco who had his best preseason as a pro. The Ravens finished 19th in the league in passing yards last year, but the addition of Jacoby Jones and maturation of Torrey Smith have them believing bigger things are ahead. (EDGE: EVEN) RUNNING GAME: Ray Rice had two of his best games last season against the Bengals, totaling 295 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He should be extra fresh having carried the ball just 10 times in the preseason.

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.

In NFL locker rooms, respect isn't earned only on the field. The almighty dollar also helps. When the Cleveland Browns signed Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden to a five-year, $68 million contract in May that included $45 million guaranteed, it affirmed his reputation as one of the top cornerbacks in the game - and his value to the AFC North franchise. "What sets Joe Haden apart? He's not an average corner," Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith said. "His contract, that shows you he's not average.

John Harbaugh walked toward the back of the bench to exhort the fans, wagged four fingers in the air to signal the start of the final quarter and welcomed big defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to the sideline with a flying chest bump that left the Ravens' head coach falling backward.   Despite one of the most trying weeks in franchise history, Harbaugh told general manager Ozzie Newsome on Wednesday that he sensed his team was ready to play well and was he ever prophetic. The Ravens broke the trend of close games against their biggest rival by dominating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-6, in front of an announced 71,181 at M&T Bank Stadium and a prime-time television audience.

When the Ravens' pass rushers went after Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton on Sunday, they got stonewalled by his blockers. The Ravens finished with zero sacks and zero quarterback hits in the 23-16 defeat, as Dalton had plenty of time to operate. The Ravens play the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight at M&T Bank Stadium and will need to generate pressure against star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. "Yeah, we got to do a better job of trying to get to him," said outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil,  who had one tackle in the opener.

Every Monday, I'll unpack the stats behind the previous day's Ravens game. If the day after the game is anything like yesterday was, I think we'll opt for Tuesday. And if the team plays on Thursday, it will likely be Friday. But I swear that most weeks, it will be Monday. All stats courtesy of Pro Football Focus.

Emotional about Ray Rice's release and still stinging from a season-opening defeat, the Ravens play AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in two days. The quick turnaround looms for the Ravens following a disappointing game Sunday in which they lost, 23-16, to the Cincinnati Bengals. The potential of falling into an 0-2 hole in the division makes the Steelers game a pivitol one for a team that just dismissed one of its top players. "It was a tough loss," veteran defensive end Chris Canty said.

Baltimore Sun staff members give their thoughts on the Ravens ' game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1 of the 2014 NFL season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: It was 2013 all over again. The Ravens got off to a terrible start, Joe Flacco made a couple of head-scratching mistakes, and the Ravens totally abandoned their running game. Then, after a long touchdown pass to Steve Smith almost made it all not matter, their defense let down in the fourth quarter, another characteristic of last year's team.

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.
