Call me crazy, but this could be the turnaround game the Ravens have been waiting for. There is plenty on the line for the Ravens as they sit at 3-5. If the Dolphins could beat the Bengals on a safety, the Ravens can squeeze out this win.

The Bengals have more playmakers than the Ravens, but keep an eye on QB Andy Dalton. He can gift-wrap games to an opponent.

Sure it's a must-win for the Ravens, but so was last week's game and that didn't seem to light a fire under them. The Bengals are, quite simply, the better team — enough better that it will negate the Ravens' home-field advantage.

In this huge divisional game, the Ravens aren't going to go down without a fight, but they will have their hands full with Andy Dalton and A.J. Green.

Ravens maintain close game for a while but are ultimately unable to contain Bengals' multiple weapons on offense, particularly secondary targets like Marvin Jones and the athleticism of rookie running back Giovani Bernard. The Ravens offense remains stuck in neutral and the receivers have trouble creating separation.

Until the Ravens figure out their myriad offensive problems, it's hard to foresee them being able to beat a quality team, even at home, even with all the Bengals' defensive injuries.

Been wrong all season on my home team. So wouldn't advise anyone to bet their house on my suggestion. But, I have a hunch the Ravens will come to play. They simply have to figure out this run scheme thing one of these weeks. Rice runs for 65+ yards and Marlon Brown scores two TDs. Tandon Doss gives the Ravens some good field position.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
