On paper, this game must just be a gambler's nightmare. No matter how much analysis and thought you put into predicting the final score, it's still a coin flip. You've got the pissed-off 0-2 Ravens playing their home opener against a divisional rival in what is a must-win game. Seems like a no-brainer, right? But their opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals, have been on fire of late, and are winning on all cylinders.
