When/TV: 8; NFL Network. Line: Bengals by 3; O/U: 431/2
The scoop: This AFC North matchup pits the Bengals' explosive offense against the Ravens' hard-nosed defense. Baltimore won the first meeting 26-20 after taking a 14-0 lead four minutes into the game. Since then, Cincinnati's offense has hit its stride. Quarterback Carson Palmer has thrown three touchdowns in each of the past three games since rediscovering Chad Johnson, who has 573 receiving yards the past three games. The Bengals face a Ravens defense that leads the league with 20 interceptions and sacked Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger nine times Sunday.
Joanne Korth's pick: Ravens 27, Bengals 20
