5.) Put Carson Palmer on disconnect. The Bengals are going to spread the field and find out if the Ravens' secondary can cover man-to-man. They also will run out of the spread with Cedric Benson, who rushed for 100-plus yards twice against the Ravens last year. This is where the Ravens show if their defense has truly improved this season. The pass rush has to get to Palmer, and the defensive backs have to cover. Aside from Ochocinco, this may not be as tough as it seems. Terrell Owens had seven catches last week, but averaged 7.6 yards per catch. He's a shadow of the old TO. The Bengals were looking to improve their receiving corps in the offseason, and that was the best they could do. It may not be enough today.
