It seems that whenever one of the AFC North teams meet up, they always have a classic game. It just so happens that two of the better AFC North teams will clash on Sunday at 1:00 pm. The Cincinnati Bengals head to MT&T Bank Stadium and play the Baltimore Ravens. [embedit snippet=”jon-ads”]
Let us first look at the Cincinnati Bengals. They are entering this game on Sunday with a record of 3-6-1 and are currently in 3rd place in the AFC North. They happened to be two games behind the division-leading Steelers, but are three and a half behind the Chiefs and Broncos for the Wild Card. Since they had the tie with the Washington Redskins three weeks ago, the Bengals have gone 0-2 in those games.
Although they are coming into this game against the Ravens on a two-game losing streak, the Bengals have stayed in the game and have come up short in their losses to the New York Giants and the Buffalo Bills. If you look at the remainder of the Bengals schedule, they have a lot of winnable games. But I feel its probably too late for the Bengals to make any run at the division or a Wild Card spot.
On the other side, you have the Baltimore Ravens.They are entering this game with a record of 5-5 and are currently in 2nd place in the AFC North. Unlike the Bengals, the Ravens still have a shot at the playoffs as they only stand half a game behind the Broncos for the final Wild Card spot. They are however coming into this game coming off a loss to the seemingly unbeatable Cowboys, and the Ravens are only in second place due to the Steelers winning the night Thanksgiving game.
I expect this to be a close game like the last three meetings between the two AFC North teams were determined by eight points or less.
