CINCINNATI (AP) - Mark Clayton put a little sizzle into
Baltimore's steadily evolving offense.
The fourth-year receiver threw a touchdown pass on a reverse,
then made a spectacular one-handed catch for a 70-yard score on
Sunday, helping the Ravens keep pace in the AFC North with a 34-3
victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Ravens (8-4) have won six of their past seven games with a
renowned defense and an offense coming into its own behind rookie
quarterback Joe Flacco. Each week, the Ravens give him a little
more freedom and a little more of the playbook.
Against the Bengals (1-10-1), they added a page for Clayton, a
first-round draft pick who emerged as a dual scoring threat on a
cold, rainy afternoon.
