The NFL is back on Thursday nights. After a Week 1 matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons, the Baltimore Ravens traveled to Cincinnati for a meeting with the Bengals.

The two AFC North teams got Week 2 started with an interesting first few minutes. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco - who flashed in the team's first game against Buffalo - tossed a horrible interceptions.

It didn't take long for the Bengals to take advantage with a short touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to star wide receiver A.J. Green. Cincinnati followed that drive up with yet another touchdown from Dalton to Green and currently lead the contest 14-0.

It's not all great news for the Bengals tonight, however. Running back Joe Mixon exited with what the team is calling a knee injury.

Despite the initial scare, it looks like Mixon will be just fine. He jogged back out onto the field and is back in the game for the Bengals. Stay tuned. UPDATE: Joe Mixon appears to be dinged up again.

We'll update his injury when more becomes known.
