That's a third of their games where they've scored 16 points or less.
One of those teams they scored 16 on was Cleveland.
You are right: hats off to the Bengals "D"- for not allowing a pretty average offense to run over their average defense.
I'm liking their chances in Denver a little more as long as Cutler doesn't become Romo overnight. Denver only scores about 18 points a game, but then again, they haven't played the Bengals lol...
The Ravens scored in the 20s (usually mid to high) every game but this one since Billick took over as O coordinator. The D played well and I am not going to diminish that by holding a team that had been scoring in the 20s for 5 straight weeks to one late TD, and almost shut them out. Not to mention that is a major accomplishment to the same cast of characters that gave up 42 points in a half. Just giving credit where it is due.
