Now they've opened the season with back-to-back 34-point games, and Zampese's replacement, Bill Lazor, looks dialed in with his play calling now in his second year running the offense. These were the first two touchdowns he's scored against his division rival since 2015.
Andy Dalton was hot in the first half with four TD passes, the other one going to Tyler Boyd.
Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton finished 24 of 42 for 265 yards and four touchdowns, which came on four consecutive drives in the first half.

"We're learning and growing", Lewis said. It's a great start, and they temporarily ended their recent skein in primetime games over the past few seasons.
Much of the blame has been directed at Dalton, who has yet to win a postseason contest. A year ago nearly to the day, they lost to the Houston Texans, falling to 0-2, and fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese the following day after scoring nine points in two games.
Cincinnati's offensive line protected Dalton well last night, as the Ravens could not generate enough pass rush to even sack him once.
