On paper, the Week 11 matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals had potential for excellence. Instead, injuries ruled the day.
Multiple players were injured during the Ravens' 34-20 win over the division-rival Bengals. The biggest name to leave the game was Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who appeared to injure his wrist in the loss. He was unable to return.
The Ravens also dealt with an injury scare early, as Mark Andrews left the contest on the team's first drive. He did not return and may be in for a lengthy absence. Lamar Jackson appeared to tweak his ankle a few drives later, but returned to play, and was able to break off a few strong runs. Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. also left the contest late due to a shoulder injury.
It wasn't the prettiest win, but it works. The Ravens improve to 8-3 with the victory and are in control in the AFC North. The Bengals are now 5-5 and need a lot of help down the stretch if they want to contend in the AFC. That could be much harder if Burrow has to miss time.
