"We just played sound offense in the first half and made the plays in the second half that we needed".
"A lot of people probably underestimate us still", said Mixon.
Four days earlier, Flacco was happy to idle on the sideline in the fourth quarter, watching the backups play the Buffalo Bills as they coasted toward the franchise's third-highest margin of victory. They return to action at home against the Denver Broncos Sept. 23.
For the majority of the game, Andy Dalton had plenty of time to exploit Baltimore's secondary.
NFL Research noted too that: "Andy Dalton is the first player since Matt Ryan (Week 17, 2016 vs New Orleans Saints) to throw four touchdowns in the first half".
And when the Bengals returned to Cincinnati after a second straight losing season, owner Mike Brown chose to give Lewis a two-year extension based in part upon the Bengals' 31-27 win that day. He now has 44 grabs for 764 yards and nine scores in his past eight games against Baltimore. The offense's three-play drive was a case study in how not to finish a 21-point comeback: incomplete pass, incomplete pass, fumble on a scramble Flacco hoped would last longer than it did.
The Bengals became the NFL's first 2-0 team this season. He's averaged 89.5 rushing yards and 28.5 receiving yards with 1 touchdown through two games.

That image? That's a leak of the Razer Phone 2 , and yeah, we'll forgive you if you thought it was the original Razer Phone . The Razer Phone 2 appears to have slightly thinner bezels above and below the screen - but they're by no means small.
The second-year back left the game in the third quarter with a right knee injury.
"We still have one (improvement) we need to make, one we haven't done a good job of in the first two games, which is making sure we close out football games", Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. "I think our guys brought it to them tonight", said rookie safety Jessie Bates, per the team's official website.
Cin - Boyd 14 pass from Dalton (Bullock kick), 2:58.
Mixon, who admitted he would not have returned to the game if Cincinnati had a bigger lead, also drew the respect of his teammates for confronting Ravens cornerback Tavon Young for what he considered an unnecessary shot on Dalton. Flacco threw a pair of touchdown passes, including a 21-yarder to John Brown that cut it to 28-23 with 9:35 left. Mixon finished with 24 carries for 81 and was key to a drive in the fourth quarter that helped set up a field goal that cemented the Bengals' lead.
PASSING - Baltimore, Flacco 32-55-2-376.
