The Baltimore Ravens (1-0) will try to start the season with back-to-back victories (spoiler) for the first time in three years when they visit the Cincinnati Bengals (0-1) for a ferocious divisional matchup coming early in the season.

The Flock stayed home last weekend for what amounted to their first win of the season while hosting the lowly and inexperienced Texans. The Cats played against the never-quite-there Browns and dropped the ball mightily as QB Joe Burrow played one of his worst games as a pro... one day after signing the richest contract in NFL hitsory.

Those are only a few of the main things that popped up on Sunday across the NFL nation, but there is plenty of more saucy stuff worth knowing as we appraoch the final day of the weekend.

Here's every interesting storyline that you need to know ahead of the Week 2 divisional clash between birds and cats, Ravens and Bengals, scheduled for Sunday, Sept.17, if you don't want your mates to sound clever than you come game day.
