Bengals' A.J. Green scores three TDs - in 17 minutes

Bengals' A.J. Green scores three TDs - in 17 minutes

However, the Bengals have enough depth to withstand the loss of Johnson, especially in the form of Sam Hubbard.

"They fought and played hard, but they didn't play flawless", Harbaugh said.

The Baltimore Ravens crushed the Buffalo Bills last weekend in Baltimore in their season opener, 47-3. "'Oh, hey, remember vs. this team, they played this look, or like that play I was saying last week (against the Colts) when he caught the touchdown, that diving catch, it reminded me a lot of that catch he had against St. Louis our rookie year".

But two games into the new season, the Bengals are serving notice that things could be different.

Andy Dalton first found Green for a short 4-yard touchdown to open the first quarter.

His first and third touchdowns came in the end zone, with the third TD being a clutch reception on third-and-goal.

Geno Atkins (two sacks, four QB hits) repeatedly hounded Flacco, who completed 32 of 55 passes for 376 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions while struggling with his accuracy.

"I was looking at the stat line like 'A.J". Tonight isn't a must-win game, but a victory could prove that these Ravens are different than past year and give them an early lead in the race for the AFC North crown. We're brothers man, we're grinding and going through camp and it's 95 degrees, feels like 110.

Week 2 in the National Football League opens up Thursday night with an AFC North divisional battle between two teams coming off double-digit wins in Week 1.

Patriots injury report: Rex Burkhead (concussion) upgraded to limited
Farrow spent a year ago on the injured reserve, but in 2016 he ran for 192 yards on 60 carries with the then San Diego Chargers. Patriots running back Rex Burkhead appeared to be limited at the beginning of the team's practice today.

The Bengals have not only done what the 1988 Bengals never did, but also something no team in franchise history has done by scoring at least 34 points in the first two games ...

The Ravens switched up their coverage on Green but couldn't stop him in the opening half. That's his first career three-touchdown game, and he had it before 17 minutes had elapsed in the game.

"Any adjustments when covering A.J. Green? He's a great player".

"It just happened to fall that way", Green said. "We were in a groove".

The Ravens finally got on the board in the second quarter when Javorius Allen rushed for a 1-yard touchdown.

For them, the last-minute touchdown in Baltimore became a starting point. In his first year as the undisputed no.1 back in Cincinnati, Mixon touched the ball 22 times for 149 yards and a touchdown.

Dalton certainly believes their connection is firing on all cylinders right now, as it has been since he lobbed a 38-yard pass into the end zone in the third quarter against the Colts in Week 1. They are making an early-season case that they, and not the Pittsburgh Steelers or Baltimore Ravens, could be the team to beat in the AFC North.

Now Dalton just hopes this connection keeps rolling.
