Cincinnati Bengals fan or not, we have to love cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick partying it up at a local nursing home ahead of Thursday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens. At that point, no one would have blamed the Ravens for wanting a second game against the Bills this season, not the Bengals. However, he hasn't caught 10 touchdown passes in a campaign since lighting up the scoreboard with exactly 10 touchdowns in the 2015 season. How will the Ravens contain AJ Green and Joe Mixon? Andy Dalton hit Tyler Boyd for the game-winning 49-yard touchdown on 4th and 12 to stun the crowd at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Ravens finally got on the board in the second quarter when Javorius Allen rushed for a 1-yard touchdown. The Bengals offensive line has improved but look for the Ravens to try to take advantage of Bengals right tackle Bobby Hart, who was frightful in the Bengals week one win over the Colts.

After a first-quarter interception, his 75th since the 2013 season for the second-most in the league, Flacco tightened up and nearly pulled off an impressive comeback until Bengals safety Shawn Williams forced a turnover to effectively end the game.

"That was a great way to start tonight, to come out hot like we did to set the tone", Dalton said.

Flacco finished 32 of 55 for 376 yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and four sacks.

Two touchdowns in a full game is a pretty nice night, but Green wanted more. Flacco even scrambled for a first down on third-and-two and then stunned the Bengals with 9: 41 left when he hit wide receiver John Brown on an acrobatic touchdown catch that was hard to believe he caught. Dalton got the ball out quickly in the first half and peppered his receivers with catchable targets, leading the Bengals offense into the end zone four times despite three drops from his receivers.

Again, Flacco tried to will Baltimore back into the game with this late drive, a 21-yard touchdown pass to John Brown.

An interception by Flacco on the offense's second drive gave the Bengals a head start at the Baltimore 16-yard line.

When Flacco tried to lead wide receiver Michael Crabtree on the first snap of Baltimore's second series but he led him too far and Bates came up with his first National Football League interception at the Ravens 30 and he ran it back to the 16.

"Andy played unbelievable", said Green, who caught a 38-yard touchdown pass.

On third down Eifert drew a pass interference call on safety Tony Jefferson in the end zone to bring the ball to the Baltimore 1.

Bengals kicker Randy Bullock added one more field goal for the final margin.

"It just happened to fall that way", Green said.

A young man in a black shirt ran onto the field in the closing minutes undetected until he got near Dalton. But they squandered chance after chance to make the fourth quarter more manageable. Still, it was incredible to watch her just take over games and simply will Seattle to wins.
