Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NFL - By Childs Walker

The win­less Ben­gals rank ninth in pass­ing of­fense but just 27th in net yards per at­tempt, and they’ll be with­out two of their best play­mak­ers. Quar­ter­back Andy Dal­ton has com­pleted 63.2% of his passes and thrown seven touch­down­sagainst four in­ter­cep­tions, but he grades as one of the 10 worst starters, ac­cord­ing to Pro Foot­ball Fo­cus. He’s taken 20 sacks in five games. Cincin­nati’s top re­ceiver, Tyler Boyd, has given the Ravens fits, with 23 catches for 365 yards and two touch­downs in six games.

Quar­ter­back La­mar Jack­son had his worst pass­ing game of the sea­son in Sun­day’s 26-23 over­time win over the Steel­ers, av­er­ag­ing just 5.8 yards per at­tempt, throw­ing three in­ter­cep­tions and tak­ing five sacks. Jack­son’s pass­ing num­bers have trended in the wrong di­rec­tion since the first two games. Rookie wide re­ceiver Mar­quise Brown made a sen­sa­tional touch­down catch in traf­fic against the Steel­ers but missed a chunk of the game with an an­kle in­jury.
