The Baltimore Ravens buried the Joe Burrow-less Cincinnati Bengals, winning 34-20 on Thursday Night Football to stay in first place in the AFC North.
The Ravens were trailing, 10-7 when Burrow suffered an injury to his right, throwing wrist while throwing a touchdown pass to Joe Mixon in the second quarter.
Baltimore took the lead with a 37-yard touchdown pass from Lamar Jackson to Nelson Agholor and then added on with a 10-yard strike from Jackson to Rashod Bateman to make it 21-10. Jackson finished 16 of 26 for 264 yards passing and the two scores. He also ran nine times for 54 yards.
Edwards scored twice and ran 10 times for 58 yards, while rookie Keaton Mitchell added 33 yards on eight carries. Veteran wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had his first 100-yard game since 2019. He finished with four carries for 119 yards.
The injury to Burrow seemed to take the wind out of the Bengals’ sails, but his was not the only one. All-Pro Ravens tight end Mark Andrews left with an ankle injury, the Bengals lost cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt with a quad injury and Beckham left the game late with a shoulder injury.
The Steelers will visit the Bengals next week after playing the Cleveland Browns this Sunday.
