Four things to watch for in Sunday's Ravens-Bengals game

The Ravens head into Week 1 seeking another opening day win and an early divisional lead.

Ronald Martinez

Jimmy Smith vs. A.J. Green

Like Dez Bryant, A.J. Green is an elite wide receiver and it would do well for the Ravens and Jimmy to keep him silent.

C.J. Mosley

Mosley is the first rookie to start the first game of the season for Baltimore since Haloti Ngata in 2006. Expectations are high and he'll have the task of defending against Tyler Eifert and the run.

Brandon Williams vs. Russell Bodine

Williams was a monster in the preseason and it would be benefit the Ravens if he was able to give Russell Bodine a hard time on Sunday.

Dennis Pitta, Owen Daniels/Crockett Gillmore

Dennis Pitta has had some good games against the Bengals and Owen Daniels has been pretty good against them as well. Look to see if the two have another good one against him,and look to see how much playing time Gillmore gets,seeing as Daniels has been having leg issues.
