The Cincinnati Bengals are set to visit M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland for an AFC North clash against the Baltimore Ravens. The Cincinnati Bengals come into this matchup with a 0-5 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent home game against the Arizona Cardinals, 26-23. QB Andy Dalton had a solid game through the air for the Bengals as he connected on 27 of his 38 pass attempts for 262 yards and 2 TDs. WR Tyler Boyd was the top target for Dalton and Cincinnati as he hauled in 10 catches for 123 yards and a TD.
The Cincinnati Bengals struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the Arizona Cardinals as they allowed them to score 26 points and rack up a total of 514 yards of offense. Safety Shawn Williams led the way for the Cincinnati defense with 13 tackles while LB Nick Vigil also recorded 13. The secondary had a productive game for the Bengals as Dre Kirkpatrick racked up 8 tackles and 2 pass deflections while B.W. Webb also pitched in 2 pass deflections.
The Baltimore Ravens come into this matchup with a 3-2 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-23 in OT. QB Lamar Jackson struggled to get much going through the air for the Ravens as he connected on 19 of his 28 pass attempts for 161 yards, 1 TD, and 3 interceptions. RB Mark Ingram received a heavy workload for Baltimore as he ran for 44 yards and a TD on 19 carries.
The Baltimore Ravens were solid on the defensive side of the ball against the Pittsburgh Steelers as they held them to 23 points and a total of 269 yards of offense. LB Patrick Onwuasor led the way for the Baltimore defense with 7 tackles and 1 TFL. LB Pernell McPhee was able to get into the Pittsburgh backfield a handful of times as he contributed 6 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 TFL. LB Josh Bynes recorded the lone interception of the game for the Ravens.
The Baltimore Ravens have had a rough patch of games as they played the Chiefs, Browns, and Steelers, but they get to take their high-powered offense to one of the worst defenses in the NFL. The Cincinnati Bengals don’t have the athletes in the backend of their defense to run with Lamar Jackson, and given the secondary troubles, Jackson can attack them through the air as well. The Ravens need to right the ship on the defensive side of the ball, and the Bengals rank 29th in the NFL in points scored which shows their struggles. The Ravens also will return to their home stadium and they will be fired up for a divisional clash.
