Weather: Beginning at 1 p.m., the weather is expected to be rather perfect. The forecast is calling for a temperature between 77 and 80 degrees with partly cloudy skies. Humidity will be around 38 percent. Wind will be less than 10 mph and there's a zero percent chance of precipitation.
At stake: More appears on the line for the Ravens than the Bengals. The Ravens open the season against three AFC North opponents. The Bengals get a tough game against the Ravens, but then home games against the Falcons and Titans. This would indicate an easier road to a 2-1 or 3-0 start for Cincinnati. For the Ravens, a win would give them a lot of momentum heading into Thursday's prime time game against Pittsburgh.
Odds: Ravens by 1.5
