Bengals -3 vs Ravens don't fall into the trap of thinking the Bengals are the better team because they would have won the first matchup between these teams IF they didn't spot the Ravens 14 points before the game really got going a few weeks ago. That's what defensive teams do, they get a lead, sit on it and make you beat their defense. The only stat I care to remember from the first game is that the Ravens held the ball for almost forty minutes. That tells us they are plenty capable of moving the chains vs the Bengals tonight. The Ravens D should be able to slow down the Bengals at the least and could possibly make Palmer look bad.
Ravens +3 defense wins championships and this game will determine the champions of the AFC NORTH this year.
