Which Baltimore Ravens should have a big day against the Cincinnati Bengals?
The Baltimore Ravens are a team that came into the season with very high goals. They didn’t just want to win their second consecutive AFC North Championship, they wanted to contend for the Lombardi trophy. A win in this game would get the Ravens to 4-2 and things would be right with the Baltimore football world for a week. The problem is that beating the Bengals doesn’t prove anything. The Bengals are 0-5 and their only hope is a pick near the top of the 2020 NFL Draft. Beating the Bengals is a requirement for this Ravens team, but it’s not a resume builder.
That’s why the Ravens really have to beat the Bengals with some style points. It would be nice to head into Seattle for a game against the Seahawks where a win seems possible. The way the purple and black have played in the last five weeks isn’t going to cut it against teams like the Seattle Seahawks, the New England Patriots or even the Houston Texans. Not only is the sixth game of the season a chance for a get-right game, it’s a chance to calm down a nervous fanbase. Winning this game 28-24 isn’t the way John Harbaugh wants his team to get the job done. He’ll take any win he can get his hands on, yet he really needs to see an easy win here.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the players who have a chance to shine in this game. Here is a look at five players who have should be the top performers in this game.
