Through 3 Quarters

The Baltimore Ravens are on the board, but we’re still waiting on the Cincinnati Bengals to respond. Three quarters in and Baltimore’s offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating Cincinnati 20 to nothing three quarters in. The Ravens have been relying on WR Marquise Brown, who has caught six passes for one TD and 77 yards, and TE Mark Andrews, who has caught six passes for one TD and 56 yards.

Baltimore has been a nightmare for Cincinnati’s offensive line with five sacks already. We’ll see how many sacks Baltimore can scare up the rest of the game.

What to Know

The Baltimore Ravens won both of their matches against the Cincinnati Bengals last season (23-17 and 49-13) and are aiming for the same result Sunday. Baltimore and Cincinnati will face off in an AFC North battle at 1 p.m. ET at M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens have the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency.

Baltimore picked up a 31-17 win over the Washington Football Team last week. Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson earned his paycheck as he passed for two TDs and 193 yards on 21 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 53 yards. One of the most memorable plays of the game was Jackson’s 50-yard touchdown rush down the right side of the field in the second quarter.

Meanwhile, Cincinnati was able to grind out a solid victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, winning 33-25. Cincinnati’s RB Joe Mixon was on fire, rushing for two TDs and 151 yards on 25 carries in addition to snatching one receiving TD. This was the first time Mixon has racked up 100+ rushing yards all year. Mixon’s sharp performance also set his single-game rushing touchdown high for the season.

Special teams collected 15 points for the Bengals. K Randy Bullock delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game. This makes it three perfect games in a row for him.

Their wins bumped the Ravens to 3-1 and Cincinnati to 1-2-1. Baltimore has been dynamite on the offensive side of the ball, averaging 30.50 points per game. We’ll see if Cincinnati can find some way to disarm them.
