BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore Ravens begin the 2017 season 1-0. The defense showed up to help Flacco and the offense bring home a 20-0 victory.
It was the Ravens’ third season-opening shutout. They also blanked Pittsburgh in 2000 and Tampa Bay in 2006, both on the road.
The Bengals hadn’t been blanked in their season opener since 1979, when they lost at Denver 10-0.
They hadn’t been shut out at Paul Brown Stadium since 2001 by the Bears.
