The biggest game of the season so far is here! If the Cincinnati Bengals can find a way to upend the Baltimore Ravens, people will finally put some respect on their name.

It’s understandable why the team hasn’t gotten the glory that some feel they deserve. After all, their wins have come against an inconsistent Vikings team, a Steelers team with an aging quarterback, a bad Jaguars team, and an even worse Lions team. Still, you can’t fault the Bengals for beating who’s on their schedule. That’s the point of the game.

The Ravens are an even tougher opponent than that of the Packers simply because they’ve had Cincinnati’s number and this game is on the road in a really tough place to play. It won’t be a cakewalk whatsoever.

How does Madden see this one shaking out?

Madden Simulation – Cincinnati Bengals 20, Baltimore Ravens 35

Bengals Stats

  • Joe Burrow – 18-of-30, 202 yards, TD, 3 INT
  • Joe Mixon – 12 carries, 73 yards, TD
  • Tyler Boyd – 7 rec, 102 yards, TD
  • C.J. Uzomah – 2 rec, 83 yards
  • Ja’Marr Chse – Rec, 12 yards
  • Logan Wilson – 11 tackles; Fumble returned for TD
  • Trey Hendrickson – Sack

Ravens Stats

  • Lamar Jackson – 24-of-34, 306 yards, 3 TD; 8 carries, 72 yards, TD
  • Latavius Murray – 3 carries, 18 yards
  • Mark Andrews – 6 rec, 93 yards, 2 TD
  • Marquise Brown – 3 rec, 34 yards, TD
  • Patrick Queen – 13 tackles
  • Tyus Bowser – 2 sacks
  • Marlon Humphrey – INT (Pick-6)
  • Anthony Averett – INT
  • DeShon Elliott – INT

Oof. This would not be a good game and would definitely have the talking heads saying some not-so-nice things about the Bengals until their next game took place.

According to the simulation, Jackson has another dominant performance vs. Cincinnati, totaling 378 yards and four touchdowns, lifting the Ravens to another commanding victory. Jackson has been playing better than he did in his MVP season so I wouldn’t be the least surprised to see him come away with numbers similar to these.

As for the Bengals, Burrow has a rough day at the office, getting picked off three times and not continuing his streak of multiple touchdown passes in a game. Burrow has definitely shown he’s the franchise quarterback of the Cincinnati Bengals but this is a game where he needs to play as though that hasn’t been proven.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the good guys keep this game much closer and it’s not a 15-point loss when the final whistle blows.
