Bengals RBs BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard vs. Ravens ILBs Daryl Smith and Jameel McClain
Green-Ellis has 690 yards on 209 carries and Bernard has rushed 157 times for 673 yards. If Smith and McClain can contain the Bengals running game and make Cincinnati one-dimensional, the Ravens should have success. Bengals QB Andy Dalton is wildly inconsistent, so the Ravens have to make the Bengals depend on his arm.
