Ravens crush Bengals: 3 things that went right
3. A monster day for the Ravens’ tight ends:
The Ravens saw some great performances from their tight ends. Mark Andrews, Hayden Hurst and Nick Boyle all had moments to brag about. Boyle had one of the biggest highlights of the game with a 35 yard reception over the middle of the field. With a great effort and a lot of green grass in front of him, Boyle almost had his second career touchdown. Hayden Hurst had a couple big receptions that picked up first downs.
The Ravens went for a fourth down conversion early in the first half. Jackson found Andrews for the three yards the Ravens needed. Jackson put it up high for the big tight end and the Ravens were able to exploit a match up problem for the Bengals. Jackson started the game completing 11 out of 12 passes and nine of them were hauled in by tight ends.
Marquise Brown caught the first big pass of the game and it got the offense rolling to an early touchdown. Brown scored the second touchdown of the third quarter. Brown had a 20 yard touchdown. It was Brown’s fourth reception of the game.
The Ravens knocked the daylights out of the Bengals. The main ingredients of a passing game that got the job done weren’t surprising. It was all about the tight ends and the fast receiver they call Hollywood. The Ravens went into the game with an incredible game plan that worked to perfection.
