The Cincinnati Bengals go on the road to face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in Week 10 of the NFL 2013 regular season. The Bengals have made good progress this season but suffered a bad loss last week in Miami, and they will want to get back on the right path this afternoon against the struggling Ravens. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The 20-22 loss on the road to Miami last week dropped the Bengals back to 6-3 for the season to date. However, they still have plenty of room in the struggling AFC North division with none of their rivals even at .500 right now.
Today they face divisional rivals, the Ravens, who are struggling in third place with a record of 3-5. A win today for Baltimore would give them hope that they can overturn the Bengals' lead in the divisional title race, but a loss would all but resign them to the fact that their playoff hopes are dead and buried.
The Ravens have been reasonably solid on the pass through this season, and rank 7th in the NFL on pass offense, averaging 273.4 yards per game. Quarterback Andy Dalton is 215 of 332 for 2,587 yards and 16 touchdowns.
Meanwhile, the Ravens came out of the Bye Week a fortnight ago and continued in their struggling form to lose 18-24 to Cleveland last week. At 3-5 they will know they are running out of time to drag themselves into contention and compete for the title. Joe Flacco will have to significantly raise his game and get the offense into a higher gear. He is 184 of 310 for 2,167 yards and just 10 touchdowns.
