Bengals running attack a bright spot in lopsided loss to Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens are always one of the NFL’s top defenses year-in-and-year-out; especially since Ray Lewis has been the middle linebacker.

When a team rushes for over 90 yards or even a 100, they know that it was earned.

One of the positives in the Cincinnati Bengals blowout loss to Baltimore on Monday night is their rushing totals of 28 carries for 129 yards and no loss yardage.

This is especially surprising since the Bengals offensive line features a new center and two young guards and a new featured back.

Replacing Cedric Benson is Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis who rushed 18 times for 91 yards.

The offensive line converted a couple of fourth-and-1 plays.

Bengals beat Ravens 15-10 on 5 Mike Nugent field goals

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM GAME COVERAGE

CINCINNATI, OHIO — The Baltimore Ravens have one of the top defenses in the NFL. But sometimes they are their worst enemies with penalties and barking and pointing at the opposing sidelines all game.

There were two controversial calls that the Ravens disputed that kept Bengals drives going in the second half.

Ray Lewis received a penalty for tripping after he rolled into Carson Palmer for a sack. Terrell Suggs was flagged for roughing the passer when he wrapped his arms around Carson Palmer on another attempt at a sack and drove him backwards for the tackle as Palmer got rid of the ball.

But still, Baltimore could not stop Mike Nugent from having a career day kicking field goals.

Nugent’s career-best five field goals led the Bengals to a 15-10 win on Sunday in Paul Brown Stadium in a battle amonst AFC North rivals.

Cincinnati, now 1-1 on the season, has won eight straight division games. Marvin Lewis is 10-5 against his old team and Carson Palmer is 11-4 as a quarterback against the physical and brutal Ravens.

Mike Nugent, a former Ohio State star, was released by Tampa Bay early last season after he missed four of his first six field goals. He spent two months watching the NFL on television trying to figure out what teams might need a kicker, but also showing appreciation of what having another chance would mean.

The Bengals had lost faith in Shayne Graham as their kicker after he missed several easy field goals last season. Baltimore apparently didn’t have faith in Graham either, because they cut him after a training camp battle with Billy Cundiff, who can kick field goals up to 59 yards.

The Bengals gave Nugent a chance to win the job in training camp. He beat out a worthy opponent in Dave Rayner. In Sunday’s game, Nugent kicked field goals from 36,30, 46, 38 and 25 yards. The last two field goals were set up by Bernard Scott’s 60-yard kickoff return and an interception by Brandon Johnson.

The Ravens haven’t allowed a touchdown in 10 quarters of football, including the playoffs last year.
