Cincinnati Bengals Vs Baltimore Ravens Live Stream Online
The Cincinnati Bengals are a professional American football franchise based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Bengals currently compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference (AFC) North division. Their home stadium is Paul Brown Stadium in downtown Cincinnati. Their current head coach is Marvin Lewis, who has held the position since 2003 and is currently the second-longest tenured head coach in the NFL, behind the New England Patriots’ Bill Belichick. Their chief rivals are the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, and the Baltimore Ravens.
The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore, Maryland. The Ravens compete in the AFC North division of the National Football League. The team plays its home games at M&T Bank Stadium and is headquartered in Owings Mills.
The Ravens were established in 1996, when Art Modell, who was then the owner of the Cleveland Browns, announced plans to relocate the franchise from Cleveland to Baltimore. As part of a settlement between the league and the city of Cleveland, Modell was required to leave the Browns’ history and records in Cleveland for a replacement team and replacement personnel that would take control in 1999. In return, he was allowed to take his own personnel and team to Baltimore, where such personnel would then form an expansion team.
Baltimore Ravens look to clinch playoff berth against the Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals eliminated the Detroit Lions from the NFC playoff race with a 26-17 victory at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday, behind 116 rushing yards from Giovani Bernard and a makeshift offensive line.
Baltimore controls its playoff destiny at the end of the season and took the first step to the postseason with a 23-16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts last weekend at home. The Ravens are 9-6 and if they beat the Bengals, they clinch a wild-card spot.
Ravens players of note on offense
Alex Collins, running back
This a position where the Ravens have lost a lot of players throughout the year, but Collins has come in and been a revelation. A fifth-round pick out of Arkansas by Seattle in 2016, the 5-foot, 11-inch, 218-pound runner has now started 11 games and a big performance Sunday could get him to 1,000 yards. He is averaging 4.7 yards per rush and has 895 yards on 192 carries. He has topped the century mark twice.
Mike Wallace, wide receiver
The Ravens passing game is still relatively pedestrian, but Wallace still has provided his share of big plays and remains the only established threat through the air for quarterback Joe Flacco. His speed still requires attention deep downfield. He is averaging 15.1 yards per catch and has 47 receptions for 708 yards.
Ben Watson, tight end
The 13-year veteran is still doing it, leading the Ravens in catches with 54 on 89 targets. Against a battered Bengals linebacking unit, expect the 37-year-old to be a focal point for Joe Flacco. Watson has nine catches in the last two weeks.
Ravens players of note on defense
Terrell Suggs, outside linebacker
We highlighted the 35-year-old as one to watch in the season opener, wondering what he may have left – and he promptly sacked Andy Dalton twice and deflected a pass that turned into an interception. He’s one to watch if the Bengals have to again put out Clint Boling at left tackle, as Suggs has 11 sacks – his most since 12 in 2014 and a great game away from matching a career high of 14 back in 2011.
Matt Judon, outside linebacker
The second-year linebacker out of Grand Valley St. has emerged as a rising force and part of the next generation of Ravens linebackers. At 6-3, 275 and playing the strong side he has 57 total tackles and seven sacks. That total is a career high. He also has forced two fumbles and broke up two passes.
Brandon Carr, cornerback
The Ravens broke their usual model of draft-and-develop the last couple years in the secondary by signing safeties Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson, and they did the same at corner with the 31-year-old Carr. He joined the Ravens this year after five seasons in Dallas, and leads the Ravens with 10 passes defensed and has matched his career high with four interceptions to date.
