RG3 unsure of roster status after sitting out preseason finale

  RG3 unsure of roster status after sitting out preseason finale Robert Griffin III hasn't received any indication on whether he'll crack the Baltimore Ravens' opening day roster after he was held out of Thursday's preseason finale against his former team, the Washington Redskins. "I put my best foot forward," Griffin said, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. "You go out there and you're effective, and that's all you can ask for. There's no stress or worry on my end because I know I went out there and showed them that I'm ready to go. We'll see what they decide."Griffin is bidding to make the Ravens as a third quarterback behind Joe Flacco and 2018 first-rounder Lamar Jackson.

CINCINNATI—Andy Dalton threw four touchdown passes in the first half — three to A.J. Green — against a defence that has bedevilled him throughout his career, and the Cincinnati Bengals held on for a 34-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night.

Dalton knocked the Ravens (1-1) out of playoff contention last season by throwing a 49-yard touchdown pass in the closing seconds of the final game in Baltimore. On Thursday, he sliced-and-diced a defence that has more often gotten the upper hand in their AFC North rivalry, leading Cincinnati (2-0) to an early 21-point lead .

Heading into the game, Dalton had thrown more interceptions (17) than touchdowns (15) against the Ravens, including a four-interception game at Paul Brown Stadium last season. Dalton finished 24 of 42 for 265 yards, throwing four touchdown passes for only the fifth time in his career.

Green set the tone with touchdown catches of 4, 28 and 7 yards on consecutive possessions, a career high . Upset that he fumbled twice during a 34-23 win at Indianapolis on Sunday, he caught everything near him during the Bengals’ early surge. Green finished with five catches for 69 yards.

Dalton’s 14-yard touchdown throw to Tyler Boyd made it 28-7 late in the first half.

Joe Flacco was sharp in an opening 47-3 win over the Bills, but couldn’t do anything against Cincinnati until the Bengals led by three touchdowns. Flacco threw a pair of touchdown passes , including a 21-yarder to John Brown that cut it to 28-23 with 9:35 left.

Flacco fumbled with 2:42 to go — Shawn Williams stripped the ball from behind — setting up a field goal by Randy Bullock that closed it out. He finished 32 of 55 for 376 yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and four sacks.
