The Star Democrat - - SPORTS -

CINCIN­NATI (AP) — Andy Dal­ton threw four touch­down passes in the first half — three to A.J. Green — against a de­fense that has be­dev­iled him through­out his ca­reer, and the Cincin­nati Ben­gals held on for a 34-23 vic­tory over the Bal­ti­more Ravens on Thurs­day night.

Dal­ton knocked the Ravens (1-1) out of play­off con­tention last sea­son. On Thurs­day, he sliced-and­diced a de­fense that has more of­ten got­ten the up­per hand in their AFC North ri­valry, lead­ing Cincin­nati (20) to an early 21-point lead.

Dal­ton fin­ished 24 of 42 for 265 yards, throw­ing four touch­down passes for only the fifth time in his ca­reer. Green set the tone with touch­down catches of 4, 28 and 7 yards on con­sec­u­tive pos­ses­sions, a ca­reer high.
