The Ravens started this season the same way they started last season – by blowing out an AFC North opponent. Baltimore used offense, defense and special teams to beat the Bengals 44-13 Monday night. Joe Flacco was spectacular throwing two touchdowns on 21 of 29 passing for 299 yards. Ray Rice also got in the end zone, but only ran for 68 yards on 10 carries. Ed Reed returned an interception for a touchdown. Rookie kicker Justin Tucker booted three field goals. It doesn’t look like the Ravens have too many weaknesses, but we’ll find out more about the team next week when they face the Philadelphia Eagles.

Flacco Making Push for Fantasy Football Stardom

John Harbaugh on Joe Flacco: ‘Pay him whatever he wants’

If the Ravens front office was looking for leverage in contract negotiations with Joe Flacco, they found none this week. Baltimore is expected to give Flacco more freedom this season and let him run the no-huddle offense, and he turned that freedom into 21-for-29 passing, 299 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 44-13 win over Cincinnati Monday night. He also got the ultimate...

Ravens, Rice open season against Bengals

''It's sort of like that refreshing feeling, like the first day of school when you want to wear your new clothes,'' the Baltimore Ravens running back said. ''That's what Monday night is. You put on your best outfit...

Bengals match worst opening loss ever

The Bengals viewed their first game as a chance to show they've made big strides in the offseason. Instead, they matched the worst season-opening loss in franchise history.

"Is Joe Flacco an elite QB?" - the question nobody is asking

"Sure he's elite, of course he is… he's the best quarterback I've ever been around." - Ravens coach John Harbaugh "… of course Harbaugh said that he thinks his quarterback is elite. What else would he say? Flacco played very well, but he has to do this consistently to be in the same league as Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and the Manning...

Ravens-Eagles Preview

A late game-winning drive salvaged an otherwise dreadful Week 1 for Michael Vick. Joe Flacco was brilliant for virtually all 60 minutes. Vick could be facing an unfriendly home crowd if his performance is much like the season opener, and Philadelphia Eagles fans would only be more temperamental if Flacco and the new-look Baltimore Ravens offense have another big game Sunday. Limited...

Baltimore Ravens: 2012 Week 2 Power Rankings (#14)

Last week: 15 (+1) Record: 1-0 This is the first in 4 straight controversial rankings. Two of my early season bold predictions, Titans over Ravens and Rams over 49ers, took a hit on an otherwise solid week 1, but I hate to change predictions after 1 week. I’d rather be wrong than flip flop because I think I’m wrong and then be proven right. Everyone is wrong about stuff. If I’m...
