Lamar Jackson threw three touchdown passes and scored on a long run as the Baltimore Ravens ripped the host Cincinnati Bengals 49-13 on Sunday afternoon. Jackson completed 15 of 17 passes for 223 yards across three quarters as the Ravens (7-2) swept the season series from Cincinnati.

The outcome ruined the NFL debut of Ryan Finley, a rookie quarterback for the Bengals. Cincinnati (0-9), the NFL's lone winless team, didn't appear to have solved anything even as it came off an open week on the schedule.

Jackson completed his first 11 passes, two of those for touchdowns to Mark Andrews. There was no letdown for the Ravens, who upended previously undefeated New England a week earlier.

Finley ended up 16-for-30 for 167 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He replaced Andy Dalton, who was benched after eight games, as the starter. Cincinnati running back Joe Mixon gained 114 yards on 30 carries. Marcus Peters intercepted Finley's second-quarter pass and returned it 89 yards for a touchdown. This came after the Bengals moved 60 on 10 plays to move into scoring position.

That turnover led to the Ravens stretching their lead to 28-3. With 26 seconds left in the quarter, Finley threw his first career touchdown pass on a 6-yard play to Tyler Eifert. That 10-play drive covered 70 yards.

Jackson extended the Baltimore advantage to 35-10 with a 47-yard touchdown run before the midway mark of the third quarter. This was set up after a fumble by Bengals running back Gio Bernard. Another Bengals fumble led directly to a Baltimore touchdown on Tyus Bowser's 33-yard return late in the third quarter.

Earlier, the Ravens scored two first-quarter touchdowns, with Jackson connecting with Andrews for a 2-yard pass for the first points. Running back Mark Ingram ran 1 yard for the next score. After a 42-yard field goal by Randy Bullock put the Bengals on the board, the Ravens went back to work. Jackson threw 17 yards to Andrews for the next touchdown.
