Joe Flacco had the worst game of his career last year against the Cincinnati Bengals. He threw 4 interceptions in their first meeting last year and looked more like Joe Fool than Joe Cool. Since then, Joe Flacco has played much better but is still very inconsistent.
This is a game that the Ravens must win and they must use the proven formula of giving Ray Rice the ball. Ray Rice only had 5 carries last week which will not cut it against the Bengals. The Ravens will be playing without Ray Lewis and the Bengals will play without rookie star wide receiver A. J. Green.
Hopefully, the Ravens coaching staff have finally learned their lesson and won't try to throw the ball 60 times against this Bengals defense. The Baltimore Ravens have not loss 2 games in a row in a long time.
Prediction: Ravens 24 Bengals 13
