CINCINNATI: The Bengals have grown into offensive coordinator Jay Gruden's zone-blocking scheme nicely. Their offensive line, one of the NFL's best, should continue to improve this season. BenJarvus Green-Ellis should continue to take the majority of the work on first and second down. Rookie Giovani Bernard will be a change-of-pace and passing down back, although he could end up sharing that role with fellow rookie Rex Burkhead, who's considered to be more advanced in pass protection. Gruden runs a West Coast offense, but it's a passing game that attacks downfield much more aggressively than most WCOs. Andy Dalton is a shaky decision maker with accuracy that comes and goes, but his willingness to let A.J. Green make plays in traffic is what makes this offense go. Green does most of his work on the perimeter and deep. The second read is usually slot receiver Andrew Hawkins, and they run some designed plays to get TE Jermaine Gresham the ball. Their No. 2 receiver is rarely used, and Bernard figures to be the only back that does more than pass protect. The Bengals were balanced in the red zone last year, including a 50/50 run/pass split in goal-to-go situations. This underrated defense placed sixth in the NFL in total defense (320 YPG allowed) and ranked third in the league with 51 sacks, thanks to DT Geno Atkins (12.5 sacks) and DE Michael Johnson (11.5 sacks). In the second half of 2012, the Bengals allowed a paltry 12.8 PPG with 19 forced turnovers and three defensive touchdowns. New OLB James Harrison is familiar with AFC North opponents, and will help groom young LBs Vontaze Burfict and Rey Maualuga. The strong front seven allows the secondary to go after the football, collecting nearly as many INT (14) as TD passes allowed (16) last year.
BALTIMORE: The champs have steadily moved away from the running game as they've gone more no-huddle the past two seasons, but they're still middle-of-the-pack when it comes to run/pass ratio. They utilize a lot of zone-blocking plays, using some more stretch looks when Ray Rice is in the game and some inside zone plays for back-up Bernard Pierce, who should eat into Rice's workload a little more this season. Rice has typically taken 75 percent of the reps in past years, but that should be closer to 65 percent as Pierce has earned the coaching staff's trust. The Ravens finally handed the keys of the offense over to Joe Flacco last year, and despite some bumps in the road, it worked out. Expect a system heavy on no-huddle again this year. This is an Air Coryell offense that attacks downfield, and has the weapons to do it in Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones. Veteran Anquan Boldin is gone, with his production underneath likely going to tight ends Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson, and No. 3 receiver Tandon Doss. Ray Rice continues to be frequently used as a security blanket and screen option to create mismatches. The Ravens still skew run-heavy near the goal line, where Rice takes a big workload. LBs Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe, and DBs Ed Reed, Bernard Pollard and Cary Williams are all gone from the 17th-ranked defense (351 YPG allowed), but DT Haloti Ngata, LB Terrell Suggs and a healthy CB Lardarius Webb are still Pro Bowl defenders. Replacing Lewis and Ellerbe will be rookie ILB Arthur Brown and ILB Jameel McClain who is coming back from a spine injury. Newcomers DE/LB Elvis Dumervil, DL Chris Canty and DB Michael Huff will all help the Ravens combat the AFC's toughest schedule.

*Bengals-Ravens Preview* ========================


The Cincinnati Bengals are hoping to bounce back from a strange end to their four-game win streak but they'll have to overcome a rash of injuries, mainly on defense.

The most significant absence for Sunday's visit to the Baltimore Ravens will be All-Pro defensive tackle Geno Atkins.

Atkins is out for the season after tearing his right ACL in a 22-20 overtime defeat in Miami on Halloween. The Bengals (6-3) lost when the Dolphins' Cameron Wake sacked Andy Dalton for a safety.

Atkins, who had a team-best six sacks and a career-high 12 1/2 in 2012, joins cornerback Leon Hall (Achilles), safety Taylor Mays (shoulder) and defensive end Robert Geathers (elbow) on injured reserve.

Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga (knee, concussion) and offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth (knee) didn't play last week and both were held out of practice Wednesday. Running back Giovanni Bernard, though, returned to limited practice after hurting his ribs late against Miami and backup middle linebacker Michael Boley was back after missing that loss because of an ailing hamstring.

With Atkins out, second-round draft pick Margus Hunt is expected to play a little more on the inside for the Bengals, who have a two-game lead over second-place Cleveland in the AFC North.

"We can't get hung up on (injuries). I showed our guys the last four or five Super Bowl champions and the amount of people that went on IR. They overcame it," coach Marvin Lewis said. "The best team in the NFL year after year finds a way to overcome all the obstacles that come along the way.

"The playmakers of the team have to step up and win."

That means more production from Dalton, who extended his streak of 300-yard games to four last week, but didn't throw a touchdown and was picked off three times. He had totaled 11 TD passes and two interceptions in his previous three games.

After some extended rest, Lewis' team will try to persevere against Baltimore (3-5) before hosting the Browns.

"Honestly we feel like these next two weeks are the biggest of the season because of where we are in the division," Whitworth said. "We get an opportunity. These games can tilt things one way or the other."

The Ravens have been on the wrong end of several close calls, losing their last three by a combined 11 points.

They cut an 11-point deficit to three early in the fourth quarter last Sunday in Cleveland but allowed the Browns to cap a 15-play drive with a field goal with 14 seconds to play in a 24-18 loss. Last season, Baltimore won eight games by seven points or fewer, including two in the playoffs, en route to the franchise's second Super Bowl title.

"It's the National Football League. Most all the games are going to be close," coach John Harbaugh said. "The difference is winning the close games. We've done that in the past. We have to do that again. That's what we have to figure out how to do. "

The Ravens, who haven't lost four in a row since dropping a team-record nine straight in 2007, are averaging 17.0 points in the last three games after scoring 23.4 per contest to start the season. Baltimore is averaging just 61.3 rushing yards during its losing streak and 71.6 this season after producing 118.8 per game in 2012.

The passing game hasn't been much better, as Joe Flacco has already been sacked 25 times - 10 fewer than all of 2012.

Starting strong has been another problem for Baltimore. The Ravens scored their only first-quarter touchdown in the season opener against Denver and have been outscored 92-63 in the first half. They've outscored opponents 71-36 in the fourth quarter.

"Let's come out of the gates. Let's find a way to get a lead," Harbaugh said. "We have not been able to do that.

"Offensively, we've just got to get better. I've got a lot of optimism that we'll do it as a team. But we'd sure like to get it going and build some confidence and see our guys starting to make plays."

Cincinnati snapped a four-game skid in the series with a 23-17 home win Dec. 30 but both teams were resting their starters for much of the game after securing playoff berths.

Cincinnati has lost in each of its last three visits to Baltimore and was blown out 44-13 in its latest one Sept. 10, 2012.

Prior to seeing limited action in last December's meeting, Ray Rice had rushed for two touchdowns in each of his previous three games against the Bengals. Rice has just three touchdowns this year - and none in the last three games - and with 259 rushing yards, he's on pace to end his streak of four straight seasons with at least 1,100.
