BALTIMORE -- There's probably a stat that says the Bengals weren't the only team to lose the first three games of the regular season on walk off field goals.
"I've only been playing for five and every game feels the same," left end Sam Hubbard said. The defense was outstanding again in Sunday night’s prime-time pain of a loss to Ravens 19-17.
It left the Bengals at 2-3 and 0-2 respectively in the AFC North. The Bengals are now searching for answers as they lost despite not allowing Lamar Jackson's immediate offense to reach 20 points.
The Bengals defense has not allowed a second-half touchdown this season. So the Ravens used three Justin Tucker field goals. The last one was an arrow to their heart from 43 yards.
Joe Burrow, Bengals quarterback, was tremendous on the Bengals' last drive. He weaved and bobbled under Ravens two-deep zone to drive Bengals 75 yards in
7 minutes 44 seconds. The Bengals tied the game at 16 with a one yard sneak with 1 minute and 56 seconds left. Evan McPherson scored an extra point to tie the game at 16.
The longest play on the drive was a 13-yard pass from wide receiver Ja'Marr to Chase. He called the deep zone mostly "quarters."
