The best case scenario is that both teams rest their injured players, nobody gets hurt, and the Ravens come out with a win. I'd be pretty pissed if our guys get hurt in this meaningless game, and I'd be pissed if the Bengals take this game seriously and embarass us with our scrubs playing.

    Re: Ravens @ Bengals predictions.

    Ugh. Terribly difficult game to pick. I dunno what the line is, but IMO it's a pick 'em. So in that spirit, I'll say Ravens 24, Bengals 23. As someone else said, a homer pick. ;-)

It shows them they are on par with the two elite teams in the division, and I do think it is a sign of things to come.

    Cincy has slowly but surely built a solid team. Sure they have some issues like all teams, but that is the way of the NFL given the salary cap era.

    Going into next year I fear the Bengals more then the stealers.

    Re: Ravens @ Bengals predictions.

    Your comments make a lot of sense, Ed. I pretty much agree with everything you said.

    Sanu was getting into a solid groove with Dalton and taking pressure off of AJ. Had he stayed healthy I would put the Bengals up against most teams. I can't wait for a healthy Sanu & AJ next year. Hopefully we can gut it out. Next man up...

    Re: Ravens @ Bengals predictions.

    I get way too emotionally involved in these games. It will be great to watch a game at home and not sweat the outcome.

    Ravens 24
    Bengals 23

    Homer pick.

    Once the Playoffs start everyone on this board will become huge Cincy fans. It would be nice to have another AFC championship game in charm City. I was fortunate to be at the last one during the 1970 season. As a punk teenager I proudly threw snow balls at George Blanda back then.

    I agree. Plus, the weather is supposed to be like 20 degrees, dont need any pulled muscles and tweaks on a hard turf.

    Re: Ravens @ Bengals predictions.

    I want to thank the Cincinnati fans for selling out this game. It is somewhat meaningless, but it's "The Ravens".

    I get to watch it on my big screen and not get pneumonia ( I have a cold from hell right now).

    guys, this will be the most meaningless game the Ravens have played in the Harbaugh era!

    Re: Ravens @ Bengals predictions.

    I think both teams are looking for some momentum going into the playoffs. They're going to play as long as the score is close. They both need to get on a roll if they are going to do anything in the next couple of weeks.

    That was the first season I really started following football. Bengals started 1-6 and reeled off 7 in a row to sneak into playoffs. Baltimore clobbered us but we were so excited just to be there. Fitting because the Orioles had clobbered the Reds in World Series the same year. Ouch!

    Agree. This looks to be the most likely to me too. It's an exhibition game. What incentive is there to get the 3 seed? I think there's more to be gained by resting key players and not risking injury to other key players.
