The Baltimore Ravens (7-3) will host the Cincinnati Bengals (5-4) after the latter already welcomed the Flock to the Jungle back in Week 2. This is the second consecutive AFC North matchup for the Ravens, who lost their last divisional game last weekend against the Browns (5-4).
The Ravens already dealt the Bengals a loss earlier this season when they beat them on their own turf back in Week 2 by a close score of 27-24 in a game in which Cincy's quarterback Joe Burrow was still nursing a calf injury that limited his chances a bit (unless he was faking it.)
If Baltimore can win on Thursday, they will sweep the Bengals while staying atop the AFC North. If they lose, however, they will lose possession of the no. 1 seed to either the Browns or the Steelers, which face each other on Sunday.
Here's everything you need to know about this Week 11 TNF matchup between Baltimore and Cincinnati.
TNF: Ravens vs. Bengals Week 11: All you need to know
When and where
The Ravens will finish their ongoing three-game homestand tonight at M&T Bank Stadium after beating Seattle in Week 9 and losing to the Browns last Sunday.
This is the last time they will play at home in nearly four weeks, with the next game taking place in sunny Los Angeles and the next matchup in Baltimore scheduled for Dec. 10.
Through 10 weeks of play, Baltimore is 3-2 when they play at The Bank, and they will try to stay above .500 while also finishing the current homestand on a positive note by sweeping the season series against the Bengals.
The Ravens and their guests will be taking the field of The Bank late, at 8:15 p.m. ET, in contrast with their late kick-off from Week 8 when they faced and defeated the Cardinals in Arizona.
This Thursday the kick-off for the Week 11 matchup against Cincinnati is scheduled to take place at 8:15 p.m. ET (6:15 p.m. PT for those on the West Coast; 2:15 a.m. CET for those in Europe).
The forecast for Thursday at kick-off time in Baltimore, according to AccuWeather, predicts 44 degrees with mostly clear skies. There is near-zero chance of rain (2%), with a non-factor chance of thunderstorms and a S 4 mph wind with gusts at just 5 mph.
The Baltimore Ravens will be missing key starters on TNF, with the potential to lose even more bodies between now and kick-off time. Top cornerback Marlon Humphrey was listed as "doubtful" to paly with a calf injury and faces long odds to actually get any defensive reps. Left tackle Ronnie Stanley has already been ruled out, as well as linebacker Trenton Simpson.
With Stanley out, Patrick Mekari will start in his position while the Ravens will also benefit from the return of right tackle Morgan Moses after he missed the last two games with a shoulder injury. John Simpson, Devin Duvernay, Kyle Van Noy, and Daryl Worley were all listed as "questionable" to play.
The Bengals were forced to rule out their second-best wideout in Tee Higgins while also losing edge rusher Sam Hubbard, as expected. Cincinnati will try to put Trey Hendrickson out there on the edge as he didn't make the injury report on Wednesday, while wide receiver Andrei Iosivas is also out for TNF.
