Bengals’ Ryan Finley throws first TD pass of his career vs. Ravens
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Ryan Finley endured a bit of a rough start to his NFL career against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 10. Fortunately, he was able to find his footing just before halftime. Finley threw his first career touchdown to tight end Tyler Eifert to cap off a 10-play, 75-yard drive heading into the break.

It is certainly encouraging to see Finley finally starting to feel comfortable. He had made a crucial mistake in the red zone earlier after he was picked off by cornerback Marcus Peters and could only watch as he sprinted the other way to the end zone.
Of course, some growing pains were to be expected of the rookie. Making his first career start against a resurging unit such as the Ravens’ defense is no easy task. However, Finley managed to piece together a solid first half by completing 10 of 16 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown. The Bengals will need him to build on that momentum if they hope to compete in the second half.
