Paul Brown Stadium: 1:00PM EDT

Weather: 74F and Sunny 

 

Football is back! The ravens open up the season against the division rival Bengals. The Bengals will be without the services of 2 defensive starters, Adam Pacman Jones, and Vontaze Burfict. For the Ravens, Joe Flacco will make his season Debut after missing all of training camp/preseason with a back injury. How well can we expect him to play given he may not be in football shape? In my opinion the ravens will need a big game from their offensive weapon  to have a chance to win.

The defensive key to this game will be the secondary containing the raven killer AKA AJ Green and after spending much of the offseason beefing up the secondary I think they have a chance.

If the ravens can somehow limit AJ green then I think the defense can hold cincy to under 20 points. Can the ravens score 3 TDS? Im not sure, if they plan on flacco carrying the team on his back then I dont think so. The run game will need to show up, and a defensive TD or specials team play will need to be made for us to win this game,

 

My prediction: 

Bengals 20  Ravens 14

 

Plus ya know, we never win in cincy

Make anyone besides AJ Green beat us pls. Offense don't suck THAT bad.

 

All that being said, I bet on the Bengals ML because I cannot see our offense showing up at all @CIN with only one week of practice between all the starters.

Should be a defensive contest, Bengals won't be able to run the ball though. Neither will the ravens....But we should be able to score 20 points.

The last time we opened the season with the Bengals, I believe this happened:

That was also the season that this happened:

Moral of the story - the defense needs a pick six.

Unfortunately we opened with them at home our first year with Steve Smith and lost in the final moments

Two of my fantasy teams (and probably history) say that we won't stop AJ Green

Thanks! I hope I didn't steal anyones thunder! I'm not the most creative one out there, but I try.  I figured we needed a GDT up early since its the first week..

I think it comes down to which team turns the ball over less.  Since Joe is rusty, I think they have to take a safe, ball-control type offensive game plan in and rely on the defense to make a big play or 2.

 

I think it comes down a FG either way, so I'll go 16-13 Ravens.

I went the opposite way.  Bet the Ravens money line (+135) and parlayed the Ravens ML with the under (42.5) on a slightly smaller wager.

20-10 Ravens

Our defense is legit, and offense can't be any worse than last year.

Not ideal that just 4 days before the season opener we need to get this sort of news about QB1, but at least its something

Sounds like Jaylen Hill will be out. Pretty disappointing.

I like it. That's how it should be. Let the second inside linebacker spot be rotational based on whatever is needed from that spot on a particular play.
