Default So honestly...

What does everyone think the chances are that the Bengals can beat the Ravens this weekend? I think with Ray likely being out, this significantly increases their chances. Lee Evans will also probably not play, so two potential game breakers are now gone.

A loss to the Bengals and we will be sitting pretty atop the AFC!

My prediction: 21-17 Bengals

I don't know the ratbirds have two decent young TEs and the bungals seem to have had problems with covering TEs.

But I still give a slight edge to the bungals because I think their offense is more sound.

It's definitely going to be a close game. As much as I hate to say it, I actually think there's no way the Ravens lose this game. They are at home and coming off an embarrassing loss to a crap team in the Seahawks. They play much better at home and now have a chip on their shoulder. Look for Ray Rice to get a lot of touches. He will be the key to them winning.

Of course..... every time this year I have said "there is no way the Ravens will lose this game", they have lost so......

Here's to superstitious horseshit.

I think the Ravens will take it, but we'll still be pulling for the Bengals.

its about 50/50. bengals have a good chance, but the ravens could very well win this.

i think cincy's defense will bottle up ray rice, they are tough vs the run. it will be up to flacco to win this, who has been inconsistent. the bengals are without leon hall which could hurt them though, but with jacco you never know what you'll get, he's pretty much the equivalent of bubby brister. if he has a crap game, bengals will win. if he plays good, the ravens will win

This one's a pick 'em if there ever was one.

Both have reasons to win and lose, both have issues with offense and defense and both have issues with injuries.
That said, if I had a gun to my head I'd have to go with the Ratbirds, if only by a field goal or less.

The ratbirds always have some chip on there shoulder, they can't just go out and play football. They disgust me, so I will never say they can win a game. But I actually think the bungles can pull this off, they HAVE to play 100% mistake free football though. If Green was playing I would say they win no problem, but they will have really rely on Benson having a good day and making some big plays now.
