Five Thoughts After Ravens’ Win Over Bengal

The Ravens scored a 19-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football at M&T Bank Stadium in Week 5.

Following two straight home losses featuring fourth-quarter collapses, the Ravens needed to close out a win at home.

But Baltimore needed this one for morale. Every loss stings, but losing 17- and 10-point leads at home requires extra strength ointment. Baltimore hadn't been good on either side of the ball in the fourth quarter.

Calais Campbell admitted that even as Tucker trotted onto the field for the 43-yard game winner, he felt nervous.Well, maybe it's time to pinch Tucker just to make sure.

Jackson didn't have his strongest night, as three overthrows proved especially costly and kept this game closer than it should have been.

His second quarter interception short-circuited the Ravens' early momentum when they built a 10-0 lead and were driving for more

Baltimore's defense rose to the occasion, however. The Ravens didn't allow member of the Bengals' wide receiver trio to top 50 yards. Tee Higgins, who left early with an ankle injury, was shut out.

Tyler Boyd had three grabs for 32 yards. The Ravens secondary, which had given up more passing yards than any other unit, put a lid on Cincy

Losing Marcus Williams for a "significant" amount of time to a dislocated wrist is a tough blow. Williams has gotten off to a strong start in Baltimore and his playmaking ability made opponents think twice about going deep. Safety is one of the Ravens' strongest position groups, but this injury still hurts.
