THE LOWDOWN

BALTIMORE RAVENS

Head Coach: John Harbaugh

W/L: 4-5

  • Baltimore host divisional rivals Cincinnati in a crucial encounter following the Ravens’ bye.

  • They lost their third game in a row in their last match, going down to AFC North leaders Pittsburgh in a 16-23 defeat.

  • Head coach John Harbaugh is rumoured to be on the hot seat and his fate may be placed in rookie QB Lamar Jackson with Joe Flacco struggling with a hip injury.

CINCINNATI BENGALS

Head Coach: Marvin Lewis

W/L: 5-4

  • Cincinnati were on the end of a huge score when they hosted New Orleans last weekend with the Saints racking up 51 points.

  • The Bengals were powerless to stop the Saints in the blowout result as they allowed 509 total yards.

  • Star WR AJ Green is expected to be out until December with fellow WR Tyler Boyd tasked with becoming the Bengals’ #1 receiver in his absence.

THE PREDICTION

This divisional match-up could shape the rest of the season for both teams. The Ravens are currently a game behind the Bengals in the AFC North but both trail the Steelers with games running out. A Ravens loss would put them in real trouble and after losing their last three games, they really need to respond following their bye week but they can do that here with an important win.
