Mark Selig (13-2 picking Ravens games)
Ravens 19, Bengals 17: This has to be a difficult game to get up for if you’re a Raven. It will take real professionalism to play in what figures to be rainy Cincinnati with little on the line. The Bengals’ defense has quietly been among the best during the second half of the year, so even if the Ravens were vying for a division title, this would be no gimme. But Steve Smith Sr., likely playing in his last game, will provide the spark to help the Ravens pull out a close but not-so-artistic game.
Edward Lee (12-3)
Bengals 17, Ravens 16: The state of the injury-depleted Bengals and the anger of the Ravens would suggest that the Ravens should run away with the season finale easily. But the Bengals have won the last four meetings in Cincinnati, and there is nothing like an AFC North rival to stir the fires enough to pull off an upset and continue the Ravens' downward spiral.
Childs Walker (12-3)
Ravens 26, Bengals 20: It's always hard to pick a game in which neither team has much incentive. But the Ravens have been the better team all year and they'll ride another prolific game from Justin Tucker to clinch a winning record.

Ravens 17, Bengals 10: The Bengals will be without several of their top players due to injuries. Ravens coach John Harbaugh has always gotten his teams to play hard, regardless of the circumstances. Even though they are out of the playoff picture, there is no reason to believe that is going to change. The Bengals have too many top players who will turn it in at halftime, especially if they are behind.
