BALTIMORE, Md. -- Despite heavy rains in the area Saturday due to Tropical Storm Hanna, the field conditions at M&T Bank Stadium are ideal this morning. The skies are clear with expected temperatures in the high 70s to low 80s by game time, while the storm will affect cities more to the northeast today.

That might be good news for the offense of the Cincinnati Bengals, who will probably have more success throwing the football against Baltimore's tough defense. The Ravens haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in 19 straight games, dating back to 2006.
