The Baltimore Ravens will return to Ohio to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round, and the only coin being tossed in this matchup will be at the beginning of the game.

And potentially at the end of the game if there’s overtime, but that’s not a very high possibility.

The Ravens are the clear underdogs yet again with Lamar Jackson still sidelined due to injury, and Jackson is reportedly on track to miss his sixth straight game.

In his place, Tyler Huntley will likely get the start, which is at least better than undrafted rookie Anthony Brown. Either way, the Ravens are kind of screwed.

Unless the Ravens’ defense forces several turnovers, the Bengals should have this game in the bag, sending Baltimore home early. Who knows, though, maybe Baltimore can actually pull off the upset this time. It’s the NFL. Anything can happen.

Ravens vs. Bengals Prediction

A Lamar Jackson-less Ravens team against a full strength Bengals team? We can’t in good faith put our chips behind Baltimore, not with the way the team has been playing in recent weeks.

The Ravens are in pure desperation mode. We’d bet John Harbaugh calls one of his notorious two-point conversion attempts (that fails, naturally) and Justin Tucker will without a doubt kick at least one field goal. This game could be close given the Ravens’ loaded defense, but the offense is hobbling on its last leg and needs to be put out of its misery. Start the rebuild for next season already.

The Bengals will move onto the divisional round, beating the Ravens 24-17.
