Cincinnati's win over the Ravens was the team's first victory at M&T Bank Stadium since 2009.

The Bengals fell to the Falcons 29-27 in their last meeting in Cincinnati in 2006.

Linebacker Vontaze Burfict was forced to leave the game against Baltimore due to a concussion.

The Bengals ran the read option with quarterback Andy Dalton multiple times in Week 1. Dalton finished with three rushing yards on six carries.

Cincinnati announced this week that it's donating proceeds from sales of No. 75 Devon Still jerseys to cancer research. Still's four-year-old daughter is currently fighting pediatric cancer.
