Which Ravens team will show up for this AFC North showdown? Will it be the one that lost to Seattle last week or the one that beat the Steelers twice this season? The answer to that question will go a long way toward determining the shape of the playoff race in the AFC. A Bengals win moves them into second place in the division and keeps them in the wild card chase. Who are the experts taking in this one?
It's a testament to just how far the Bengals have come that so many are projecting a narrow loss, including Pete Prisco from CBS.
Both these teams lost last week, which makes this an even bigger division game. The Ravens have bounced back in a big way after losses, so that doesn't bode well for the Bengals. Both these teams are good on defense, which should make for a low-scoring game. The Ravens win it, but the Bengals keep it close.
