CINCINNATI – Basically nothing had gone right for the Cincinnati Bengals this season until the second quarter of Sunday’s game against Baltimore Ravens.
Bengals rookie wide receiver Charlie Jones returned a punt for an 81-yard touchdown to tie the game at 7-7 and score Cincinnati’s first touchdown of the season. It gave the home crowd at Paycor Stadium something to cheer about after they had booed the offense earlier in the quarter.

According to the team’s media guide, it was the first Bengals punt return for a touchdown since Adam “Pacman” Jones took one back in 2012 against the Cleveland Browns. That was also an 81-yard return.
The Bengals are looking to avoid an 0-2 start for the second straight season.
