2. The Ravens defense will bounce back

The Ravens' defense was on a historic pace before last week against the Browns. A defense that had stifled opposing offenses all season struggled mightily to get stops (especially in the second half), heavily contributing to the Ravens blowing a double-digit lead to the Browns.

But from what I've seen from this defense, I don't think the struggles will last for long.

Although the Bengals offense has gotten it going in recent weeks, I think the Ravens find a way to limit Burrow and the Bengals. Burrow has certainly had some big performances against the Ravens in the past, but he has been far less productive in their last 3 regular season matchups.

The Bengals are 1-2 in the last 3 matchups (not counting the playoffs) and Burrow has thrown for under 230 yards in each game, while recording a passer rating under 90 in each game as well.

I think the Ravens' defense comes out angry after the Browns game, holding the Bengals to under 20 points and less than 300 total yards while sacking Burrow 5+ times.
