State of the AFC North: Week 1 It was an eventful .

The Ravens dominated the Bills and earned a 47-3 victory. Cincinnati outlasted the Colts to move to 1-0. The Steelers and Browns Cheap Marshal Yanda Jersey , in the first divisional matchup of the year, ended in a 21-21 tie. Cleveland continues to search for their first victory since 2016. Ravens defeat Buffalo Bills: 47-3 Dynamic passing attackBaltimore was easily the most impressive team from the division in Week 1, and perhaps the entire league. They dominated the Bills on both sides of the ball, holding them to only a field goal in four quarters while scoring a whopping 47 points of their own. Led by Joe Flacco, the Ravens passing attack was decisive. Seven different receivers caught at least three passes, highlighted by Willie Snead IV, John Brown and Michael Crabtree - all of which caught touchdown passes. The tight ends were also involved early and often. Nick Boyle got the start and secured three catches for 40 yards on the opening drive. Maxx Williams and Mark Andrews each caught three passes as well. It was a balanced attack across the board, an encouraging sign for the Ravens’ retooled crop of offensive playmakers.Sound defensive play The defense did not miss a beat, continuing their impressive play from the preseason. They held the Bills to just 153 total yards of offense. Four different players recorded sacks, including two from cornerback Tavon Young. As a team, the Ravens recorded six sacks. They also snagged two interceptions; one from Tony Jefferson and the other from Brandon Carr. Buffalo recorded just 10 first downs on the day, all of which came in the second half. The Bills also converted just three of 15 third-down conversions. C.J Mosley, Maurice Canady and Za’Darius Smith tied for the team-lead in tackles with five a piece. Bengals defeat Colts: 34-23Joe Mixon’s impressive performance Sophomore running back Joe Mixon, who many believe could take a significant leap this season, got off to a strong start in 2018. Albeit it came against the Colts porous rush defense, Mixon rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries. Mixon also made an impact as a receiver, catching five passes for 54 yards. Giovanni Bernard was expected to play a significant role in the backfield this season, but if Sunday was any indication Cheap Justin Tucker Jersey , Mixon will occupy a workhorse role this year. Bernard was given just two carries and caught his only target for 11 yards. It was an overall impressive outing for the second-year Oklahoma product. Big fourth quarter erases deficit The Bengals entered the fourth quarter down 23-17, but shut out the Colts in the final frame while scoring 17 unanswered points. A Joe Mixon touchdown run at the goal line capped off a seven-play, 55 yard drive midway through the fourth put the Bengals up 24-23. A field goal on the next drive made extended the lead to four points. Andrew Luck looked primed to lead a game-winning drive. However, with just under a minute left, tight end Jack Doyle fumbled the ball after recording a catch over the middle of the field. Safety Clayton Fejedelem returned the fumble 83 yards for a touchdown. Steelers and Browns tie: 21-21 Life without Le’Veon Bell In the first game without All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers offense largely did not miss a beat. Second-year back James Connor, who got the start in place of Bell, produced a big performance. Connor rushed for 135 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries. He also caught 5 catches for 57 yards. Antonio Brown was his usual self, catching 9 passes for 93 yards and a touchdown. JuJu Smith-Schuster also had a productive day, recording 119 receiving yards. While he threw for 335 yards, Roethlisberger was extremely careless with the ball. He threw three interceptions and lost two fumbles, which proved costly. Several Pittsburgh drives were thwarted by Roethlisberger turnovers, leaving points off the board. New-look Browns show improvement Although they ultimately failed to earn a victory, the Browns came close to pulling off a significant upset. If not for a blocked field goal attempt at the end of overtime, Cleveland would be 1-0. Regardless, they showed promise. Tyrod Taylor had an up-and-down debut, evidenced by his 15/40 passing and costly interception at the end of the fourth quarter. However, he ultimately made some throws put the Browns in a position to win.Taylor led the Browns in rushing yards with 77 on just eight carries. Jarvis Landry caught seven passes for 106 yards Youth Brandon Carr Jersey , leading the receiving corps with Josh Gordon on a limited snap count. Myles Garrett recorded six tackles and two sacks on defense.Ravens WR Willie Snead: “We’re coming out here everyday to get better” Ravens wide receiver Willie Snead IV is now entering his fifth NFL season while also joining a new team. Snead IV was an undrafted rookie in 2014, signing with the Cleveland Browns, then the Carolina Panthers and eventually landing with the New Orleans Saints on December 11, 2014. Playing in three seasons with the Saints, Snead provided a strong punch from the slot receiver position, totaling 149 receptions for 1,971 yards and seven touchdowns. With the Arena Football League playing their championship game in Baltimore on Saturday night, Snead IV took in the sights and sounds. The 25-year old receiver was in attendance to watch his childhood friend, Jared Dangerfield, who is a wide receiver for the now-Arena Bowl champion Washington Valor.”The arena game was cool,” Snead IV said after practice on Monday. “My good friend from back when we were jits, Jared Dangerfield, played for DC Valor. So, it was good to see them win and see him get them a championship.”After living in New Orleans for three years, Snead IV is now in the Baltimore area during the season. He still hasn’t fully explore the area but does enjoy the scenery in the area. ”It’s been cool,” said Willie, on coming to the Baltimore area. “It really hasn’t been too bad. I’ve really just been sticking to myself, but the city is quiet Cheap Marlon Humphrey Jersey , which is different than New Orleans, but I’m loving the atmosphere. I’m loving the change of scenery and everything with the forests and the valleys and everything like that. So, it’s been good. I’ve been enjoying myself and I’m just ready to play football here in a little bit.”The former Saint isn’t the only new receiver on the block for the Ravens; joining him in their starting lineup is Michael Crabtree and John Brown, two fellow free agent wide receivers. Each receiver has a different ability in attacking the field. Crabtree is a big, physical receiver that can make catches at the highest point of attack. Brown can blow the top off coverage's and Snead IV makes plays across the middle of the field in the slot. ”It’s been great,” Snead IV said of joining Crabtree and Brown on the Ravens. “We’re coming out here every day to get better. Like you said, we all have different skill sets that make us unique in the offense. So, it’s just working those repetitions [working them out] and getting on the same page with Joe [Flacco] in different situations. That’s why we’re coming out here every day. We’re coming out here to get better at different things. You know, we just gotta watch the film and always learn from it and get better from it and it’ll prepare us when we need it the most.” With the chance to have a bounce-back season with Baltimore, Snead IV has worked with Flacco during the offseason along with other wide receivers. The extra time between Willie, his quarterback and the other starting wide-outs has been repeatedly seen during training camp with the trio working with Flacco on the side during team drills.As the quartet continues to build their chemistry, more success has been on display in the passing game. The Ravens ranked 29th in the NFL in passing in 2017 (3,030 passing yards) and although it is just practice, Baltimore can look almost nowhere but up.
