Can the Bengals Offensive Line Slow Down the Raven’s Pass Rush?

The Ravens pass rush has been on an absolutely torrid pace the last two weeks while racking up 11 sacks, 31 quarterback hits, and 36 hurries.  The trio of Elvis Dumervil, Terrell Suggs, and Pernell McPhee have been giving opposing quarterbacks nightmares as they rip through offensive lines like a knife through butter.

Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals have done a good job of protecting Andy Dalton, ranking second in the NFL in pass blocking. This is a classic example of immovable force meets unstoppable object, and it will be key to the outcome of this game.  If the Bengals struggle to stop the Raven’s pass rush, this offense is in for a long day.
