The Bengals need a win badly after falling in three of their last four games.

In response to their recent struggles, they’ve fired their defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, and head coach Marvin Lewis decided to take the reins himself. Lewis’ first game calling the defense for the Bengals in a very long time will be against the team that made his name credible so long ago in the Baltimore Ravens.

Back in Week 2, the Bengals crushed the Ravens thanks to A.J. Green’s three-touchdown performance and their defense forcing Joe Flacco to commit three turnovers. Nine weeks later, neither Green nor Flacco is expected to play for the rematch in Baltimore on Sunday.

Regardless, Cincinnati will have to defeat Baltimore if they want to keep pace with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the rest of the AFC teams in the playoff hunt.
