Cincinnati @ Baltimore
Huge game in the AFC North. Only a few weeks ago you would put put your house on one of these two winning the division but they seem to be conspiring to give the Browns and the Steelers a shot having won just 2 games between them in their last dozen.
The numbers from this pair haven't been up to the standards of seasons past, the Ravens are #27 in offence and #14 in defence while the Bengals are #23 and #27.
A slight edge for the Bengals may be the balanced approach of their offence which will keep the Ravens guessing. The Bengals have passed for 1168 and rushed for 1160 so far this season. The Ravens however have relied more on Sam Bradford's passing for 1477 and rushing for 692 to this point.
This game could very well come down to who protects the ball better, The Ravens and Bengals have both had too many interceptions this season (#3 and #6 respectively in number of INTs thrown).
Maybe the Browns will be watching and hoping for a tie as they sit only one game behind both.
EDIT: felt I should try call it one way or the other as normally this is how previews end.... it's close but I'm going with Bengals -2.5. They just score more points than the Ravens this season.
