After a victory over the Buffalo Bills, the Ravens quickly travel to Cincinnati in hopes of avenging their heartbreaking defeat in Week 17 of 2017.
A match-up against the Bengals this early is a big test for Baltimore. They are a strong team who match up well against the Ravens. On defense, Geno Atkins is their key component while the interior offensive line for the Ravens is a big question mark. Their offensive strengths are balanced against the Ravens, leaving this a true battle of the better football club. No doubt about it, this is an important football game to decide who leads the AFC North after Week 2.
