“We certainly know that Baltimore is a great team. We expected better from our performance today. We know that today wasn’t good enough,” Bengals coach Zac Taylor said. “You give them a lead early, and you show that you are going to give up some pressure, and that is what they feed off of, and that is what they did today.”

The Ravens’ blitz-happy defense made Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow actually play like a rookie for the first time all season. Burrow and the Cincinnati offense struggled mightily versus the Baltimore D.

Cincinnati had three turnovers in the loss, including a fumble by wide receiver Mike Thomas that was returned 44 yards for a touchdown by Ravens rookie linebacker Patrick Queen.

Dominant defense leads Ravens to 27-3 win over Bengals

BALTIMORE — The Ravens’ matchup Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals was billed as a showdown between Heisman Trophy winners Lamar Jackson and Joe Burrow.

It became a showcase for the Ravens defense.

In a 27-3 win at M&T Bank Stadium, the Ravens (4-1) sacked Burrow seven times — a season high for the defense — held the Bengals (1-3-1) to 205 yards and just 3.2 yards per play and scored their second defensive touchdown of the season.

It was the stingiest game this season for the Ravens, who have allowed more than 343 yards in just one game this year. With an interception by Marcus Peters and fumble recovery for a touchdown, they have now forced a turnover in 18 straight games, the NFL’s longest active streak.

If Burrow, Cincinnati’s No. 1 overall pick, looked like a rookie getting his first taste of Ravens defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale’s exotic schemes, Jackson looked like a quarterback who hadn’t had a full practice all week.

After missing Wednesday’s practice with a sore knee and Thursday’s with an illness, Jackson participated in only Friday’s walk-through session. Coach John Harbaugh said he was “good to go,” but the Ravens looked anything but for much of Sunday’s game.

He finished 19-for-37 for 180 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, though he was lucky not to have a few more picked off. He also had just two carries for 3 yards, both season lows. The Ravens scored touchdowns on two of their first three drives, the second needing just 16 yards to find the end zone, then struggled to get within striking range after the first quarter.
