membengal Posted October 5, 2009 Report Share Posted October 5, 2009 This one remains on the offense, as Baltimore's D has been far more vulnerable, for those of you not paying attention, than they have been in some time. They miss Rex Ryan. A lot. That said, they are not a sieve. But they are capable of being passed on. And they have a problem with screens to quick guys. I would like to see more Bernard Scott in this game on the edge, and they have to find a way to complete some balls downfield. Ravens are on another one of their have-not-allowed-a-100-yard-rusher streaks, now at 39. I don't want to see a ton of Benson between the tackles on first down.The Ravens offense is absolutely for real. And they are passing like they are the 2007 Patriots. 47 passes to 17 runs yesterday in New England. And ran the ball well on those mere 17 runs. They are a handful. We need Tank and Roy back, and everyone else to heal up.I really don't like Cincy's chances in this one (duh), but NE is coming off an emotional loss, and bitching about the refs, so they are not 100% focused on just the opponent at this point. That will fade by Wednesday, but Cincy has a chance to catch the Ravens on a bit of an emotional down point, even though they are a divisional opponent.I do think the Bengals can keep it close into the 4th quarter, and then we shall see. I think they will need defensive/special teams points and a long play or two from somone like Scott to steal it. That's a hard formula. We shall see.
