The Cincinnati Bengals got the scoring started Thursday night against the division rival Baltimore Ravens. After Joe Flacco threw his first interception of the season, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton connected with No. 1 receiver A.J. Green on a four-yard touchdown pass.

While the pass and catch wasn’t terribly impressive, Dalton’s fake handoff to running back Joe Mixon was elite-level stuff.

That’s a thing of beauty right there. It absolutely fooled Baltimore’s talented defense and led to a 7-0 lead for the home team.

All said, the Dalton-to-Green connection has gotten off to a hot start this season. The two connected on six passes for 92 yards and a score in Week 1 blowout win over Buffalo.
