Arguably the most disappointing season in franchise history ends Sunday with the Ravens (5-10) playing the AFC North champion Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.

On the evening of Feb. 3, 2013, the Ravens and San Francisco 49ers met to decide NFL supremacy. On Sunday afternoon, the two teams play again, hoping to stave off 2015 irrelevance. Staying on the NFL mountaintop has proven difficult for both organizations since Super Bowl XLVII. Retirements, free-agent departures and injuries have whittled away talented and deep rosters.

Carl Davis has quickly grown accustomed to a full game's workload in the NFL. No Ravens defensive linemen has played more this preseason than the third-round pick out of Iowa, and he doesn't expect that to change in Thursday's preseason finale against the Atlanta Falcons.
Defensive end Lawrence Guy on Tuesday returned from a knee injury suffered Saturday against the Washington Redskins, giving the Ravens a boost at a defensive line position that could be thin in the final preseason game.
