This one could get interesting. In our latest version of "Take your pick" in the AFC North, we present the biggest Week 2 game in the division when the Baltimore Ravens (1-0) travel to face the Cincinnati Bengals (0-1).
The Ravens, who earned a quality road win over the New York Jets on Monday, can put the defending AFC North champs in an early hole with another road victory. But Cincinnati has had Baltimore's number in recent years. Bengals starting quarterback Carson Palmer is 8-3 in 11 career starts against the Ravens, which included a 2-0 sweep of Baltimore last season.
Can the Ravens reverse the trend? Or will the Bengals get back on track by winning their eighth straight game against a division opponent, dating back to 2008? Ironically, Cincinnati's last division loss was to the Ravens, 34-3, on Nov. 30, 2008.
So who comes out on top in Week 2 between the Ravens and Bengals? Take your pick.
