All you can take away from this game are negative thoughts.
Will they get a pass rush against an awful Oline? Will they shut down a mediocre running game? Will they allow Dalton, Eifert and Boyd to beat them up?
This needs to be a game that is never in doubt and you actually show real offensive flow.
It’s not that you take a lot from that if it happens but what you hope is that it’s the start of them realizing what needs to be done to win.

I took the Ravens in my Eliminator pool. So if they lose, it’s on me.
Right there with you. I think we play well this week.

Well this shouldn't be a close game, but I think it's a potential scary one for the Ravens. There is no way an 0-5 Cincinnati team should come into Baltimore and win. But the Ravens just barely beat a Pittsburgh team quarterbacked for a little over a half by a second year QB that was making his third NFL start and a UFA that hadn't thrown a pass in the NFL. And yet if Smith-Schuster protects the ball better, the Steelers might have won that game.
Now here's the scary part, Andy Dalton is better than both of them. If you pressure him, you can rattle him, but we've seen that the only way the Ravens can pressure is to sell out on the pass rush leaving openings in their coverage. The Bengals are decimated at WR, and on the OL, but Cleveland had a terrible OL, evidenced by the SF game Monday night, and the Raven's made Baker Mayfield look very comfortable. If Dalton has that kind of time, he can pick a secondary apart. Cincinnati is 0-5, but they aren't an 0-16 team. They played Seattle and Buffalo close on the road. It's only a matter of time until they put it together and pick up a win.
This is also a bit of a trap game. The Ravens are coming off Pittsburgh, always a tough fight, and looking ahead to Seattle. It would be easy to overlook an 0-5 team. It shouldn't be a close game, but it's the kind of game that happens several times a year in the NFL. That one team that you figure has no chance and pulls the biggest upset of the day. If the Ravens don't come ready to play, they might very well be that team that gets beat.

Dalton is better but he doesn’t have much in the way of weapons right now.

I'd say this is almost a must win because the schedule is about to get a lot tougher after Sunday. You can't whiff on the gimmes.

And here is the list for Cinci:
#Bengals injury report doubles as the inactives list most likely with Carlos Dunlap, A.J. Green, Cordy Glenn, Andre Smith, Ryan Glasgow and Kerry Wynn all ruled OUT.
Add Jake Dolegala, and there are your 7 inactives Sunday.

What I want to know is who wears the dot, if Peanut sits?

The weather is supposed to be cool and nice tomorrow.. I sit upstairs and got roasted the first 2 games. Tomorrow should be closer to football weather. Can't wait. Let's Go Ravens!

Off to the Stadium and I am bringing back a win. I hope. Go Ravens.

On paper this is a mismatch. The Bengals are crippled at WR, OL, and DL. The only way the Ravens lose this game is if they come out with the same intensity they did for the Cleveland game.

Scott makes his pro debut.
Ward is active.
Clark will wear the green sticker...team considers him highly intelligent.

Turnovers will be the only thing to keep the Bengals in this game. Hopefully, Lamar and the offense will clean that up and put this game away by half time.
