In 2009 Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson became the first running back since Ricky Williams (2000-2001) seasons to record more than 100 yards rushing in consecutive games against the Baltimore Ravens. Additionally Benson is averaging 92 yards rushing per game during his previous four meetings against the Ravens. That being said the Ravens are focusing on Cincinnati's rushing offense this weekend.

"We’ve got our hands full," defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano acknowledged during his weekly briefing Thursday. "We've played him well last year the two times we played. Then two years ago, both times, he had over 100 yards on us. So he’s more than capable. So we’ve got to go a great job on him."

"They’re huge, real big guys up front and they’ve been together for a while now," Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata said. "They’re a real physical group, too. It looks like on film, they like to bully guys around. We just have to make sure that we stop that and make sure we stop Cedric Benson."
