Bengals Bash Ravens, Move to First Place in AFC North

Published

on

The Cincinnati Bengals have taken over first place in the AFC North after beating the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Cincinnati improved to 5-2 on the season, equaling Baltimore at 5-2, but the Bengals own the head-to-head tiebreaker after a 41-17 rout of the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

Joe Burrow found C.J. Uzomah for deeps scores of 32 and 55 yards and hit rookie Jamar Chase Foran 82-yard catch-and-run, while Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine both scored on the ground.

Chase finished with eight catches for 201 yards, the 11th rookie wide receiver ever to reach that mark. Burrow threw 38 times, completing 23 for 416 yards.

The Bengals now have road divisional wins over Baltimore and Pittsburgh, giving the team a significant advantage going forward in divisional play.

Baltimore played without running back Latavius Murray, the latest Ravens rusher to be felled by injury. Devonta Freeman ran four times for 14 yards.

Cleveland (4-3) won on Thursday night despite playing without starter Baker Mayfield, while the Steelers (3-3) are off this week.
