The Baltimore Ravens (1-0) will keep their 2023 season going away from The Bank as the Flock will fly to Ohio to face the Cincinnati Bengals (0-1) on the road in Week 2.
This divisional matchup is the first one of three the Ravens will face in the first five weeks of the regular season, all of them on the road, and it will take place at Paycor Stadium on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 1:00 p.m. E.T.
The Ravens enter Week 2 as the underdogs against the Bengals even though the two teams' records speak of the contrary. Did oddsmakers get this wrong? We hope so! The truth is Baltimore dealt easily with Houston in Week 1 while Cincy got trounced by Cleveland, so odds are the Ravens came out with another W this weekend.
When it comes to games between these two franchises, the Ravens have a 28-27 winning record against Cincinnati, although they dropped back-to-back games against the Bengals last January. Perhaps that's why Ja'Marr Chase hasn't shut up for the past few days.
Ravens vs. Bengals Week 2: All you need to know
When and where
Week 2 will see the Ravens pay a visit to their AFC North foes Bengals as they'll face each other inside Paycor Stadium for the third time this calendar year after fighting each other twice last January in the regular-season finale and then in the AFC Wild Card game.
The game begins at 1:00 p.m. ET (10 p.m. PT for those on the West Coast; 7:00 p.m. CET for those in Europe).
After enduring some horrible weather in their season opener, the Bengals might have to do it under similar circumstances once again this weekend, which surely bodes well for Baltimore considering Cincy got demolished last Sunday in that type of environment.
According to AccuWeather, there are showers expected for kick-off time (1:00 PM ET) at Paycor Stadium with a temperature of 23º Celsius and a "40% chance" of precipitation with "WNW winds at 8 km/h."
There will be a very contrasting couple of injury bills this weekend when putting the Ravens and Bengals' latest injury reports next to each other.
Cincinnati weathered the storm (no pun intended) nicely for the first week-and-change and is entering Week 2 with a near-impeccable infirmary. Only DE Cam Sample missed Wednesday's practice, but he was able to return to the field on Thursday (albeit in a limited capacity).
On the other side, Baltimore kept their report filled to the brim with Marcus Williams (out for weeks) and Marlon Humphrey (out for a month starting mid-August) not practicing along with Week 1 injured linemen Tyler Linderbaum and Ronnie Stanley (both week-to-week).
Mark Andrews returned to training in a limited capacity and "God willing," he will be able to play on Sunday come kick-off time, as the team named the tight end as "questionable" for Week 2.
