Preseason injuries to Travelle Wharton and Kyle Cook thrust Jeff Faine and Clint Boling into the limelight on Monday night, alongside rookie RG Kevin Zeitler.
The run game was expected to suffer as a result of the upheaval, but the new-look offensive line gave BenJarvus Green-Ellis more than enough room to run.
However, with the Ravens scoring for fun in the second half, a tired and frustrated Bengals offensive line saw a lot of playing time.
They did not take it well.
Andy Dalton took hit after hit in the fourth quarter, and Andre Smith looked to have given up completely in the game's latter stages.
The Baltimore Ravens proved a tough test for the forced together line, and Cincinnati certainly struggled.
It's still early, but with the defense struggling, the O-line needs to give Dalton a chance to put points on the board.
