The Ravens are the only team with anything to play for in this game, knowing that they can get up to the No. 3 seed if they win and the Patriots ultimately lose. However, we really don’t think that Head Coach John Harbaugh really cares too much about all of this, and he just wants to get through this game healthy. If the Ravens and the Bengals both essentially make this a preseason game, we want the points on our side. We trust QB Tyrod Taylor to be able to get the ball moving up the field, and as he proved last week, RB Bernard Pierce does have the ability to run the rock with authority behind a great (and deep) offensive line. This really does feel like it is nothing more than a crapshoot of a game, and though the Bengals might be interested in keeping some momentum going in this one, we have historically seen that when it doesn’t mean anything to Head Coach Marvin Lewis, he tends to just call off the dogs, and a terrible game is the end result. We like the ‘under’. We love the Ravens even more.
