AFC North Week 2 Recap: Ravens Lone Team To Lose On Sunday

AFC NORTH TEAMS

All four AFC North teams have now completed their Week 2 games and only the Baltimore Ravens failed to notch a win.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Seth Roberts with 26 seconds left to neat the Ravens 37-33. Carr was 7 for 9 for 65 yards on the game-winning drive which was aided by a personal foul on Ravens defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and a hold on safety Will Hill that negated an interception on the play before the final touchdown.

This marks the first time that Ravens have started a season 0-2 since 2005. That year they finished 6-10.

In other AFC North action, the Cincinnati Bengals beat the San Diego Chargers 24-19 as quarterback Andy Dalton completed 16 of his 26 pass attempts in the game for 214 yards and three touchdowns. Bengals running back Giovani Bernard rushed for 123 on 20 carries in the game as well. Bengals starter Jeremy Hill was benched during the third quarter of the game after losing two fumbles.

The Bengals defense sacked Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers four times Sunday and also forced three turnovers to boot.

The Cleveland Browns rebounded from their Week 1 loss by beating the Tennessee Titans 28-14 at home. Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel completed just eight passes in the win but two went for touchdowns to wide receiver Travis Benjamin from 60 and 78 yards out respectively.

Benjamin also returned a punt 78 yards for a touchdown in the win and the Browns defense sacked Titans rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota a whopping seven times in addition to recovering three turnovers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers moved to 1-1 on the season after beating the San Francisco 49ers 43-18 at home as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns on 27 attempts.

In Week 3, the Steelers will play the 1-1 St. Louis Rams on the road next Sunday while the 0-2 Ravens will host the 2-0 Bengals. The Browns will host the Raiders in other Sunday AFC North action.
