The Bengals open their season on the road in Baltimore. I am sure there is still a sour taste in the mouth of all Ravens fans for the way the Bengals ended the season of the bird's last year. We once again lean on Tecmo to give us the all knowing insight into how this game is going to play out. Let's get it on.
