Bengals Early Bird Special: Ravens Week Continues

Good morning Bengals Nation. It's Thursday and you know what that means? The weekend is quickly approaching. And what does that mean? It means football, beer, more football, wings, and more beer. The weekend can't get here soon enough. I'm ready for the Bengals to rebound from their lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This week the Bengals will travel to Baltimore to square-off with the Ravens. This will also be Andy Dalton's first taste of this rivalry. And I hope the Bengals win on Sunday. I can't stand the Ravens. They complete my list of my top three NFL teams that I cannot tolerate. The other two are the Steelers and New England Patriots.

On Sunday the Bengals are going to have to be able to contain Ray Rice. They can't let him have huge carries unlike last week. Alright, so Isaac Redman and Rashard Mendenhall didn't have jaw-dropping performances against the Bengals defense, but they came through for the Steelers when it mattered the most. Mendenhall ended the game with two rushing touchdowns with the second one winding up to be the game-winner. 

If the Bengals want to win on Sunday then the defense is going to have to step-up their game dramatically. They can't let Baltimore score on their first two possessions. The Bengals' defense also can't leave receivers open or let the Ravens convert on third downs. 

Sunday should be an interesting day to see if Andy Dalton and company can rebound from a disappointing loss.

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