Having lost three straight games, the AFC North is slipping away from the Baltimore Ravens. They’ve dropped consecutive games to the Steelers, Browns, and Packers, the lattermost loss on a failed two-point conversion at the end of the game in a game in which they played without Lamar Jackson. Sunday, they have a chance to right the ship against the current AFC North leader, the Cincinnati Bengals, who are continuing to be one of football’s most fun surprises.
The Bengals are showing versatility in their ability to win games. They took two straight losses into last week’s showdown with the Broncos and stopped their skid by winning 15-10 in a slugfest. Pro Bowler Ja’Marr Chase had just one catch for three yards, while the defense played a gritty game as the offense struggled. It was a bend-don’t-break style victory, and it’s the kind of win that should be heartening for Bengals fans hoping that this team can make waves in the postseason.
The Bengals thumped the Ravens when these teams met in November in a 41-17 laugher. Chase had eight catches for 201 yards and a touchdown in that game, while Joe Burrow threw for over 400 yards. On the other side, Lamar Jackson played a solid all-around game but just couldn’t keep up with the Bengals, who had a throttling win.
Jackson is still nursing an ankle injury and has been ruled out for Baltimore. His backup, Tyler Huntley, was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, meaning NFL veteran Josh Johnson will get the start for the Ravens.
