AWESOME! 1-0 to start the year after a tough, hard fought, injury riddled AFC North game in Baltimore. The Bengals should have wrapped this game up in the first half after scoring on 5 of their 6 offensive drives. Unfortunately those 5 scoring drives ended in Mike Nugent field goals. Should have been 35-0 at the half. Instead the Bengals offense let the Ravens stick around, and it nearly bit them in the end. The Ravens came back and took the lead in the 4th quarter. However, the Red Rifle and the Juggler connected on a 77-yard pass and the defense held on. Whew. Let's hope they're not all like this. I'll take the win every day of the week, but not at the expense of my heart! Now, on to the show!

On this week's show:

We start the show off by giving our Best and Worst from Sunday's game. What was your best and worst?

The Bengals received some very positive press this week with Devon Still being put on the practice squad so that he can continue to have insurance and pay for his daughter's cancer treatments. Then, he received some more news this week as he was signed to the 53-man active squad for Sunday's home opener against Atlanta.

We look ahead to Sunday's game at Paul Brown Stadium as the Bengals face the first of their NFC South opponents, the Battle of the past two Hard Knocks squads, the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are riding high after a rough 2013 campaign and now a season opening win at home against the Super Bowl favorite New Orleans Saints. Can the Bengals stop the Falcons offense? Can the Falcons defense stop the Bengals offense? It should be a fun one, now let's just hope the game reaches "sell out" status so that you can see it!
