During the Ravens' bye week, I had a chance to catch the Dolphins-Bengals game. Upcoming games against Miami and Cincinnati should be put in the win column for the Ravens.

The Dolphins are undefeated on the road this season, but they don't appear to have the firepower to match the Ravens offensively. Miami has a good defense, but the Bengals moved the ball, although their receivers dropped a lot of passes. The most impressive thing about the Dolphins was their toughness. They bring it every play and they refuse to quit.

It's the total opposite for the Bengals. They appeared to have quit on Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. Neither Chad Ochocinco nor Terrell Owens want to catch a ball over the middle, and when they do, they immediately curl up in the fetal position. Owens should retire, because he is a mere shadow of himself at this point in his career.

Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer gambles a lot, and is inaccurate. By the time the Bengals come here to play the Ravens on Jan. 2, the taxi cabs and buses will be running outside the stadium for them to make quick exits for the offseason.
