After a big Week 1 victory over the Buffalo Bills in the Ravens season opener in Baltimore, the team travels to Cincinnati in Week 2 to take on the division rival Bengals. This of course will be the week in which the Ravens players are constantly reminded of the 4th and 12 miracle shot by the Bengals in Week 17 of last season that sent the Purple and Black packing when a playoff spot looked all but secured.
Not only is this a big time revenge game against a team the Ravens have historically had issues with, but will also be the first primetime tilt of 2018 for both teams. Cincy will clearly see this as a jumping off point for their campaign as well, so they can’t be underestimated following an underwhelming 2017.
In this scenario, Flacco and the offense are off to a good start and will look to continue it following a controlling performance against Buffalo a week ago. Can they and the defense handle a retooled Bengals squad ready to finally get back to a semblance of relevancy? Check out the video above to find out.
