Ravens vs. Bengals: Open Thread

Back to where it all began

In Week 10 of 2018, Lamar Jackson made his first start as NFL player and Baltimore Raven against the Cincinnati Bengals. He ran the ball over 25 times for 119 yards and also threw for 150 yards on 13/19 passing. A long-fought game ended with the Ravens winning 24-21.

Now, it’s time for Jackson to lead his team to victory against the Bengals once more. With the Bengals winless on the season (0-5), it’s got all the signals of the cliche, ‘trap game.’

He’ll also be playing without his newest and favorite playmaker, Marquise Brown, after suffering an ankle injury against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.

The defense is also going through a transition as Tony Jefferson suffered a season-ending ACL injury. Now, Chuck Clark is presumed to start beside Earl Thomas III and also wear the ‘green dot,’ or microphone/communicating helmet with the defensive coordinator and head coach. This will be an interesting note to watch going forward.
