  • Attack Joe Flacco. While the Ravens have had success against the Bengals, Joe Flacco has struggled substantially against the Ravens more than any other AFC North opponent. He has 1,942 passing yards against the Bengals, but has 11 interceptions to 10 passing touchdowns.
    Flacco’s career quarterback passer rating against the Bengals is 75.7. The Bengals defense has also sacked Flacco 24 times throughout his career, so the Bengals know how to get to Flacco.
    They cannot allow him to get into a rhythm and must force him to make mistakes. The running game for the Ravens has been near abysmal this year, so Flacco will most likely be relied upon to win this game. Mike Zimmer must dial up pressure and keep Flacco on his back for the Bengals to come away with a win against the division opponent.
