At Cincy...where the Ravens...and Joe...suck.

I'm worried about this one.

 

Worried about the O line keeping Joe upright and their ability to establish the run.

Worried about Jefferson and Weddle's coverage skills....and can the linebackers cover?

 

Then again, Dalton can't do much laying on his back.

 

Whoever makes 2-3 big plays wins.

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

“Put on 20 pounds of muscle over the offseason,” Hurst said. “I’m kind of on a mission this year. I’ve got a lot to prove.”

Short week coming off a blow out win, in Cinci where as you said, they rarely play well... This could be real ugly... Thankfully, I will be asleep.

Agreed.  Big blowout win against weak Buffalo opponent, Marvin seems to have Harbs #, and Joe always seems to have problems w Cincy D.

Dont know our secondary can shut down AJ Green.  Plus its at Cincy.   Lots to overcome on this on.  Tough, tough ballgame but we'll see !

Joe doesn't deal with a cover 2 well.

I think it will be a tough, close game that we don't win. But as long as we are competitive and entertaining I'll take it. It's just so tough to be going against an AFC North opponent in their house.

Of course, any plan to solidify the passing game depends largely on how much Jackson improves as a passer in his second pro season. While he made some plays with his arm as a rookie, he wasn’t as consistently accurate as anyone wanted. He acknowledged to reporters earlier this month that he knew his mechanics needed work.

Jackson said he has been working on those mechanics and other aspects of his passing since February.

Not many pundits out there favoring the Ravens, so who knows.

 

Lot of people picking the Bengals to have a down season this year, than previous ones...so maybe they'll have the better season.

For what its worth, keep an eye out for the Bengals RB Mixon. He had a big game against Indy; figures to have a substantial role tonight. Our D, unlike last Sunday, will be sorely tested tonight. Our D also needs to suffocate Dalton right from the get-go and stay relentless all night. If it doesnt, it will be a long night for the D.

Yeah Indy has crap on D.  That said Mixon is really good.

Shady has not been super dynamic in a little while.  Also that OL was horrid.

Well I made it through the first quarter, same old Ravens, penalties, wide outs who can't beat man coverage, a secondary that can't cover man to man.... Good night...

Who would have guessed that in an offensive era the team with the better qb and much much much better WRS would be ahead?
