The AFC North rivals take the field for an early season battle as the Cincinnati Bengals travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens.
Cincinnati has rattled off 2 straight wins to start the season and come in following a win against the San Diego Chargers.
The Ravens on the other hand have not been as fortunate as they find themselves the lone 0-2 team in the division after dropping a nailbiter to the Raiders in Week 2.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM EST on CBS.
The Bengals have done just about everything right through the first two games of their 2015 campaign.
After dominating the Oakland Raiders in Oakland’s home opener, the Bengals followed that up with a win over the Chargers to move to 2-0.
QB Andy Dalton threw for a pair of touchdowns in the route of Oakland and found 3 different receivers last week for touchdowns. Dalton looks to be in midseason form already and has this Bengals offense cruising right now.
Andy Dalton has typically only had AJ Green to toss to out wide, which poised as problems in the past. Defenses would typically double the star wideout and force Dalton to look elsewhere.
However, that has changed a bit as TE Tyler Eifart is 100% healthy for the first time in a while and is playing at a solid level.
Eifart caught both of Dalton’s touchdowns in Week 1 and followed that up with a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chargers. Overall he’s got 13 receptions for 153 yards.
The Ravens solid 2014 hasn’t carried over into their 2015 season. After defeating the Steelers in the AFC Wild Card Game and nearly knocking off the eventual Super Bowl Champions New England, Baltimore’s 2015 campaign has started completely the opposite.
The Ravens defense caved in late against the Raiders as they fell 37-33 last week.
After Oakland’s Derek Carr led the Raiders to a go ahead touchdown drive, Ravens’ QB Joe Flacco was intercepted in the dying seconds to seal the Ravens’ fate.
Finding a silver lining, the offense looked really impressive last week in the loss despite the late interception. WR Steve Smith Sr. had 10 catches for 150 yards and Kamar Aiken had 5 receptions for 89 yards.
TE Crockett Gillmore had 5 receptions for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns as well.
The run game has been the biggest question for Baltimore as Justin Forsett struggled Week 1 and followed that up with 68 yards on 15 carries.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Baltimore ATS
No team can really afford an 0-2 start, let alone an 0-3 beginning. Joe Flacco is just too experienced to let Baltimore fall to that 0-3 mark.
