The Ravens had a lack of morale/energy compared to the Bengals

We’re not sure how to phrase this other than, the Ravens lost this game long before the final whistle. As corny as it is, they lost it due to a lack of heart.

For whatever reason, Baltimore didn’t come out to play in their home stadium and the Bengals completely humiliated the Ravens with this 41-17 drubbing.

In the second half, the Bengals had three touchdown drives. The first drive consisted of four plays, the second drive consisted of three plays, and the third one took four plays as well.

Simply put, it was too easy for the Bengals to barrel down the field toward the Ravens’ goal line, and much of that falls on the Ravens’ defense (if that wasn’t already apparent).

In a key division matchup, Baltimore looked like they hit the bye week early with far too many mistakes on the defensive side of the ball.

Their loss against the Bengals was one season performance that the Ravens hope they forget.
