Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens Recap

The Baltimore Ravens dominated the ball on both offense and defense.  The Ravens defense, which was questioned due to age and injury, showed that they have the same swagger that Ray Lewis brings to Old Spice commercials.  Ed Reed had a masterful interception and return for a touch down that broke the backs of the Bengals players and fans.  Joe Flacco had an amazing day against a very strong secondary throwing for 299 yards and 2 Touches (Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta) on 21 of 29 attempts. 

Marvin Lewis Contract Extended

The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to extend the contract of Head Coach Marvin Lewis through the 2014 NFL season.  Lewis who has coached the Bengals to 6 winning seasons and three playoff appearances in his nine year tenure in Cincinnati

Lewis who insisted on having more personnel control after his last contract negotiations has led the Bengals back to football prominence.  The drafting of A.J. Green and Andy Dalton last season sky rocketed the Bengals in to contention in a very difficult AFC North.  Many experts have predicted the Bengals are a team on the rise, but I’m not so sure.  The Bengals are a much better team than they were 3 years ago.  Gone is the idea that you need an arrest record to play in Cincinnati, however, looking at their schedule from last year, I’m not ready to crown them yet.
