Baltimore now 0-3 on the season, C.J. Mosley remains strong

Brett Davis- USA TODAY Sports

Baltimore remains winless after three weeks of NFL regular season play.

It fell to Cincinnati at M&T Bank Stadium this week by a score of 28-24. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton recorded 383 passing yards with three touchdowns to one interception.

Ravens’ linebacker C.J. Mosley anchored a defense that held Cincinnati to 86 rushing yards on 31 attempts, averaging 2.8 yards per carry. The former Alabama standout totaled six tackles, a pass defended, a quarterback hurry and returned a fumble for a 41-yard touchdown.

Mosley’s efforts gave Baltimore a 17-14 lead in the fourth quarter, but Cincinnati’s offense proved to be to much. The Ravens may finally get into the win column next week, as it heads to Heinz Field to face Pittsburgh (2-1). The Steelers will be without veteran quarterback Ben Roethliberger for four to six weeks. He sustained a knee injury against the St. Louis Rams.
