There were times last year when it appeared that the Ravens left their passing attack on the team bus on gamedays.
Joe Flacco would struggle out of the gate, and it would take a few drives for the aerial game to get into a rhythm.
It looks like that problem popped up again today.
Through two drives, Flacco is 0-for-4 and looks like he's having trouble reading the Bengals secondary.
He missed a wide open receiver deep down the right sideline on one play, and has needed to throw the ball away on multiple occasions when the Bengals defensive backs gave him nothing to work with.
The Ravens are getting the job done on the ground, running for 33 yards on seven carries against a tough Cincinnati front. But they need to get the passing game going.
UPDATE: Flacco completed his first three passes of the Ravens' third drive of the day. The only problem is that one of the completions went to the other team.
Flacco tried to force a ball into traffic to Anquan Boldin on third down, and his pass was picked off by Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones.
An updated stat line for Flacco: 2-for-6 for six yards and an interception. Yikes.
