Good morning everyone. I hope your week is off to a good start. If it isn't then grab some donuts and eat your troubles away. Probably not the healthiest thing to do, but there are worse things you could do.

So the Bengals lost for the third time on Sunday, we all know that. But it's not the end of the world. It's time to move on from that loss and focus on this Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. There's no need to dwell on last Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

For the second week in a row the Bengals will be squaring-off against one of the better teams in the league. Despite their age on defense, Baltimore still has one of the best defensive units in the game. I don't care what others say, but you can't cast aside the Ravens defense just because of their age. Yes, they aren't what they used to be, but they are still solid overall.

As for the Bengals defense, well we'll have to see if they continue to own Joe Flacco. I have a feeling that they will. And stopping Flacco and Ray Rice is going to be vital for Cincinnati. They cannot have a repeat performance of their first half against Pittsburgh. Actually I'll go as far as saying that they cannot let the Ravens score on their first two possessions whereas the Steelers cruised down field for two straight scores to open up the game. Let's hope the Bengals don't have that repeat performance.

Alright here is what you may have missed or overlooked from Tuesday.
