Bengals at Ravens- 7PM- ESPN

Time to get this going! Now that we know what the teams look like, we can focus on the Ravens week 1. This is a huge game to start the year, and the world's eyes will be on us come Monday night. We need to start fast and play 4 quarters.

Some thoughts:
-It will be easier with Suggs not playing, the Ravens OLBs have not looked very good.
-The Ravens have some speed at WR, and Torrey Smith could have a big night against our weaker secondary.
-It will be interesting to see how things go at C, with Kyle Cook out. Wonder if Faine will start week 1.
-Hopefully we can get the ground game going to open up some deep passes to AJ.


FINAL PREDICTION:
BENGALS-24
RAVENS-20

On offense, i'm actually more excited to see Gresham than Green for now. I think he could have a monster year. One of the most talented TEs in the game.

He will never get elite numbers because they'll use him as an inline blocker a lot. That's ok with me, because it's a great facet of his game. But as far as getting national recognition, he'll never get it.

I do hope they let him go on more medium routes this year. They played him short way too much, where he couldn't take advantage of his speed.

I think the Ravens take this game. Last year i predicted 2-4 wins i think. That worked out in our favor. This year i'll predict 5-7 wins. Until this team proves it can beat the good teams, i'll continue to be a skeptic.

19-10 Ravens.

I tend to agree with J. Not only do I not expect Gresham to have a year that we would all love him to, but I think we lose this game. Our O line is outmatched in the middle and I am not sold on our defense especially without Dunlap.

Ill be honest, i don't think were going to win this game. But thats ok. I think we play all our division games relatively close (except for Pitt last year) and this one should also be a one score game.

What I'm worried about is our interior O-line. This defence is tough enough to run on already, losing Cook did us no favours. Webb should be all over Green. They will double the pants off em. Binns/Tate have to show some worth. But i agree with the earlier post, Gresham should have a big game.

Ravens 20 - Bengals 13

Yeah, I do not feel good about this game either.

Our inexperienced interior O line is gonna struggle against their front 7; even without Suggs; and I don't think were going to be able to run the ball too well. Dalton is going to have to get it out real quick.

I'd like to think Gresham has a big game, but I suspect he's going to be blocking most of the time. I suspect Roland plays a bit as an extra blocker in there too.
AJ will see alot of double-teams, so our #2 & 3 receivers will be important short.

Ravens have scored 27 per game in pre-season. Don't see us giving up 21+ points, but I sadly don't see us scoring 22+ points either.

Hope I'm wrong.......

I'm glad one of us is confident. Maybe 2006 and 2010 took all the confidence out of me.

Negative Nancy's

Bengals 23
Ravens 20

AJ Green with a big TD catch, Dalton leads one long drive with a punch in by BJGE, then three field goals by Nug.

Was going to go Ravens, but that would go against my stance of just copying what johndeere's prediction is, Laughing

I think the Bengals will get overwhelmed early and get down something like 17-3. Zimmer does what Zimmer does to shut down the Ravens and get us back into the game. We end up losing 24-17.

But now I think we'll win 24-17. Taylor Mays gonna knock the snot out of some Ravens (and hopefully not any Bengals)...

Thank goodness. If you weren't predicting a W, I would have lost hope

Was worried with the injuries piling up, but I'm glad to hear that Law Firm, Dalton and Gresham are all practicing fully...

I like our D better even with Dunlap injured. Flacco and Red will both have good games imo but I think we win the turnover battle and the game.

Bengals 24
Ravens 20

Yeah; Mays is a guy I'm gonna be watching closely. Someone needs to remind him the bad guys will be in purple.......
