NFL Week 2 Preview, Prediction: Baltimore Ravens Vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Baltimore Ravens (1-0) vs. Cincinnati Bengals (0-1)

When: 1:00 p.m. Sunday, CBS

SB Nation Ravens: Baltimore Beatdown

SB Nation Bengals: Cincy Jungle

Breakdown: These are always intense divisional matchups between these two teams because they're somewhat similar these days. Both are pretty well rounded teams with a solid defense and above average passing game with talented receivers.

Player to Watch: Terrell Owens. I suspect the Ravens will try to shut down Chad Ochocinco, who had 159 yards last week. That would leave his cohort, T.O., looking at some favorable coverage. The Bengals will need a big game from one of those guys to have a good shot at winning this game.

Line: Ravens are two point favorites.

Prediction: That Ravens team looked too good on Monday night for me to pick against them. Since this is a divisional game, I expect it to be close. Ravens by less than a touchdown.
