The NFL season is finally here!
The preseason is over and the first full Sunday of regular season football is upon us. One of the first games to kick off is at Paul Brown Stadium between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens
These two teams played in the last game of the regular season last year, and the Bengals came out ahead in that game by a final score of 27-10.
The Baltimore Ravens will make to snap their two year playoff drought in this 2017 season, and people inside the organization believe that can happen.
This team should once again be lead by the defensive side of the ball, and they will need the offense to play better, if they want to be in the playoffs again this year, and more importantly right now, win this game one match up against the Bengals.
Joe Flacco is coming off probably the worst season of his career, and he needs to be better. But that might be tough in this game, because if he does play, there will probably be some rust.
He just returned to practice from his back injury, and although he is expected to play in this game, if there is any setback he could end up missing it.
Flacco’s top receivers this year will be Mike Wallace and Jeremy Maclin, two guys who are getting up there in age, but feel like they have a lot left in their careers.
On the defensive side of the ball this team is deep, and they are hoping will get back to the old ways that their fans are used to seeing when they had the likes of Ray Lewis.
In this game with the offense probably going to have some struggles this defense needs to be really good. They need to find a way to slow down Andy Dalton and AJ Green, and not let this game turn into a shootout.
On the other side of this match up is the Cincinnati Bengals who look to have a bounce back year after only winning six games last year.
Vegas believes they will come out ahead in this game, coming in as two and a half point favorites. The offense of this team is going to be led by Andy Dalton and AJ Green, but to really have success this team is going to need to get better play out of the offensive line.
They are going to be young, and are going to be tested early in this game, against a front seven of the Ravens that is very good.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Bengals are getting older, and some wonder how effective they will be in this year.
The Bengals will be without Vontaze Burfict who was suspended for the first three games for an illegal hit during the preseason.
That means someone else is going to have to set up at that linebacker position, and fill the role there. Look for the Bengals to also try to put pressure on Flacco early.
There is no doubt his back is going to be sore still, and if they get a couple hits on him, they could create some happy feet.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Bengals -2.5
If Joe Flacco was 100 percent healthy for this game, I would think that the Ravens will pull the upset. But he isn’t 100 percent and that will be the difference in this game.
NFL Free Week 1 Score Prediction: Bengals 17 – Ravens 13
I don’t think Flacco will be very effective and I think the Bengals will take advantage.
The Bengals offense will do just enough to win a pretty low scoring game.
