Thursday Night Week 13 Prediction

Baltimore at Cincinnati – The Ravens at 9-2 are flying high, and with a win on Thursday in Cincy can clinch their second AFC North title in four seasons. It’s do or die time for Cincy, as a loss here would drop them to 6-6, and likely put a major dagger in any wild card playoff hopes. The last time the two teams met in Baltimore, the Ravens jumped out to an early lead, then held on 26-20 as the Bengals had some late shots but melted down, including the scene of T.J. Houshmandzadeh throwing his helmet when he didn’t get a pass interference call on the last drive of the game. Cincy still is giving up a lot of yards, but their defense got a boost last week with a 30-0 shutout of the Browns, their first since 1989. The Ravens defense also delivered Sunday, shutting out rival Pittsburgh 27-0. This game will be filled with emotion, and I think that despite all the success that the Ravens D has had, the Bengals offense the last three games has scored 102 points (34 per game), and for just a week will derail the celebration of the Ravens soon to be AFC North title. Cincinnati 24 Baltimore 17

    I’m with you Matt… the Bengals are favored and fighting for their lives. I think this is the best football game of the week and it should go down to the wire.
