They fired coordinator Ken Zampese and elevated Bill Lazor to interim leader of the offense.

Witness the Cincinnati Bengals, who have amassed 68 points through two games after posting their second straight 34-23 victory in a span of five days by knocking off the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday.

Those Broncos went to the Super Bowl and lost to Seattle.

Green set the tone with touchdown catches of 4, 28 and 7 yards on consecutive possessions, a career high.

"We were coming in waves all night", rookie defensive end Sam Hubbard said. Then it was the tough running of Joe Mixon, who twice left the game with a knee injury.

Cincinnati will get a better gauge on the team over the next two weeks when they play a pair of road games against Carolina and Atlanta.

Lazor was elevated from interim coordinator and spent the offseason rewriting the playbook. He's moved Dalton out of the pocket on misdirection plays. "That's a big one - puts us 2-0 to start the year and gives us a leg up in the division".

Dalton has looked very comfortable in the new schemes.

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

Both these teams enter tonight's game with 1-0 records.

"John is a different type of player, just with his speed and what he does to defenders", Flacco said.

Sometimes, losses are necessary to leave a sour taste in the mouth of everyone so that they have more dedication for the next game ahead. "I think that's where this offense is fortunate". Unfortunately, at times during their play in the second half, they also looked like a team that could lose to anyone.

Even though he was limping, Mixon broke off a 21-yard run for a critical first down that led to a field goal and bumped Cincinnati's lead to eight points.

Last year, the offense failed to score a touchdown while losing the first two games to Baltimore and Houston, putting their season on a bad course.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green scored three touchdowns in the first 17 minutes in a win against AFC North rival Baltimore Ravens. The Bengals defense will need to be physical and force turnovers if they want to take down their division foe and get off to an impressive 2-0 start to the 2018 season.

"We're learning and growing", Lewis said.

"It felt weird. My knee was hurting", he says. That's where Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick hosted a tailgate party, and was filmed cutting a rug to Warren G.'s "Regulate" with what appeared to be a nonagenarian football fan.
