Baltimore Ravens (1-0): Alex Collins has been plagued by fumbles throughout his brief NFL career, so much so that Harbaugh made it a point to bench the running back after he put the ball on the ground in the second quarter of the opener. Baltimore’s defense made a statement in the opener, permitting the fewest points and yards (153) in the league while recording six sacks and two turnovers.
Cincinnati Bengals (1-0): Joe Mixon, had 22 carries and collected 149 yards from scrimmage (95 rushing, 54 receiving) on Sunday against the Colts. However, last season at home against the Ravens the Bengals offense was shutout in a 20-0 loss.
Ravens vs Bengals Pick:
In last years game the Bengals were shutout at home by the Ravens 20-0. While I do not have the Bengals getting shutout again, I do like the Ravens defense to dominate the game. The Ravens and the Bengals both had high offensive outputs last week but they were both playing against weaker defenses than they will play tonight. I am not taking a side but I am betting on the totals.
