Hard to judge either of these teams tbh. The Ravens have strengthened Defensively in the offseason, but their Offense doesn't convince me at all.

I expected much more from Cincinnati last year, so it's difficult to predict what they'll do this season. If their OL is better than it was in 2016, they've got a shot at a Wild Card. Can't see them getting close to Pittsburgh though.

As for this one, I see it being a tight, low scoring game with the Bengals just edging it...

Bengals 17 Ravens 14

I'm a Bengals fan and not sure what to think of this game, or the Thursday game.

Offensively they are loaded, but that offensive line is obviously a huge worry and they start with 2 of the best defensive teams in the league. Dalton might not even make it to a week Sunday! If they can negate the likely pressure, which I believe they can, Dalton was one of the quickest passers in the league last year in terms of time from the snap, then they should have more power than the Ravens eventually. John Ross not being there is a miss though, really wanted to see what his pace could do. We saw on Thursday with Tyreek what blinding speed can do to a defence.

Bengals 19-15, Justin Tucker with 5 field goals. He's the Ravens offence now.

A glimmer of an offence ... and Woodhead limps off

Man Dalton forced that one so much into the endzone..

Looked pretty damn awesome up until that point.

(Seeing as though my old account Dragonic I still can't get into might as well post under this one)

Our O-line looks horrific, Dalton having to get passes out of there FAST and the Ravens D just throwing the arms up.

Bodine continues to be the worst C in the league, but we did nothing to rectify the issue in offseason. Ogbuehi has still his issues, Fisher not seen much of so far.

Constant pressure, Stupid penalties, no time for Dalton. Though Dalton hasn't been great himself, 2 of the INTs were tips but he has missed wide open people, Core earlier on who had a walk in if he connects..
