Kevin Cowherd Ravens 27, Bengals 17 Joe Flacco loves the no-huddle offense - let's see if it scores points. Ray Lewis looks like the "after" shot in a Medifast ad, but the defense is still plenty good enough to intimidate opponents. Edward Lee Ravens 21, Bengals 17 The Bengals are rising, but they won't take off on the primetime stage in Baltimore. With the Bengals lacking a dangerous No. 2 receiver, the defense will contain A.J. Green, and Ray Rice will continue his success against the AFC North rivals.

As expected, Ray Rice did not appeal his two-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy , meaning that the running back will be sidelined for the Ravens' Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and their Sept. 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rice also was fined three total game checks, which equates to $529,000, by NFL commissioner   Roger Goodell. The Ravens' running back, who was accused of striking his now-wife, Janay, unconscious during an altercation in the elevator of an Atlantic City, N.J. casino in February, learned of the suspension Thursday, before the team's first full-squad workout of training camp.

With the Ravens out of the playoffs, thanks to their miserable play the last two weeks of the season, I promised myself I was only going to watch football this weekend - not write about it. So, here I am writing. Why? I can't resist commenting on CBS Sports giving viewers of Sunday's playoff game between the Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers exactly what I have been lobbying for all year: a sideline reporter. Tracy Wolfson joined Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, and she provided viewers with some of the things I wanted in a Ravens telecast: injury reports, condition of the field, a sense of what was happening on the benches.

Kevin Cowherd Ravens 20, Bengals 17 Driven by fear of tumbling in playoff seedings, Ravens overcome season-long road problems with workman-like win. Edward Lee Bengals 30, Ravens 21 With a first-round bye and at least one home playoff game at stake, the Ravens have plenty of motivation. But the Ravens have lost five of their last six in Cincinnati, and that trend won't end on Sunday. Mike Preston Bengals 21, Ravens 17 The Bengals have much more to play for, and the Ravens have not performed well on the road.

Quarterback D Joe Flacco threw four interceptions. Enough said. Running backs A Halfback Ray Rice ran 16 times for 87 yards, but he touched the ball only 8 times per half. When Flacco is having a bad day, Rice, Willis McGahee and Le'Ron McClain need to carry the load. Rice was the Ravens' offense. Offensive line C- This group is good when the Ravens run the ball and use a lot of play action.

The Bengals rode the Wayback Machine on Sunday, all the way to last season. Grumble about the tactics, if you want. The win looks the same. You say the offense looks dysfunctional. The victory says the offense was patient. You say Carson Palmer isn't using his new toys. The win says too much playtime isn't good for the bottom line. At least we can agree on the defense. The defense was magnificent. Having coached defense in Baltimore and faced the Ravens too many times to count as Bengals coach, Marvin Lewis knows how to beat Baltimore.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Lindsay Patterson, who covers the Bengals for ESPN 1530 in Cincinnati . MV: Outside of that dud against the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago, the Bengals have been on a roll since their overtime loss to the Ravens in Week 10. What clicked for the new AFC North champs?

RAVENS PASSING GAME: The Ravens will unveil their new-look, up-tempo with quarterback Joe Flacco who had his best preseason as a pro. The Ravens finished 19th in the league in passing yards last year, but the addition of Jacoby Jones and maturation of Torrey Smith have them believing bigger things are ahead. (EDGE: EVEN) RUNNING GAME: Ray Rice had two of his best games last season against the Bengals, totaling 295 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He should be extra fresh having carried the ball just 10 times in the preseason.

Ravens 33, Giants 14Ravens 33, Giants 14 Strategy: Offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell finally put his creative stamp on the offense, orchestrating season highs with 533 yards of total offense and 224 rushing yards. That included an option pitchout from Joe Flacco, getting Ray Rice isolated against slower linebackers to good effect, and selectively targeting suspect cornerback Corey Webster. Getting  wide receiver Torrey Smith in single coverage against Webster was an effective gambit to gain separation.

Bengals 34, Ravens 17 STRATEGY: To the bitter end, the Ravens remained true to their identity as a passing team, despite Joe Flacco's obvious pain and hampered mobility due to a sprained left knee. Flacco threw the football 50 times for 192 yards and was sacked twice and had three interceptions. The Ravens ran the ball just 14 times, for 47 yards. Running back Ray Rice was benched for the first half after one carry for 1 yard, later returning with limited effectiveness. The Ravens stopped using running back Bernard Pierce after he had five runs for 28 yards total in the first half.

Joe Flacco walked slowly off the field, his hands resting on his hips and his head down. He didn't even give a cursory glance at the Cincinnati Bengals celebrating in the end zone. When he finally got to the sideline following Dre Kirkpatrick's 21-yard interception return for a touchdown, Flacco pulled off his helmet and tossed it to the ground, creating a defining image for a Ravens season that was just minutes away from ending. Whether that was the moment when it had finally set in for Flacco and the rest of his teammates is unclear, but they'll have plenty of time to digest the reality now. The Ravens are not going to the playoffs, their title defense officially coming to an end Sunday.

PASSING GAME RAVENS: It's been a disappointing year for Joe Flacco and the Ravens' passing game which enters the regular-season finale, averaging just 227.7 yards per game. That ranks 19th in the NFL. Only three quarterbacks have thrown more interceptions than Flacco's 19 and only one has been sacked more than Flacco (46). Flacco is 98 yards away from setting a career single-season high in passing yards. Torrey Smith needs 101 yards receiving to set a single-season Ravens' record.

The last time Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton squared off against the Ravens' defense, he left M&T Bank Stadium thoroughly flustered. Dalton was harassed into several mistakes, including three interceptions, and was sacked five times. Although he finished the Ravens' 20-17 overtime victory on Nov. 10 with 274 passing yards and two touchdowns, he completed just 24 of 51 passes, a season-low 47.1 completion percentage. Now, Dalton is looking like an altogether different quarterback for the AFC North division champion Bengals heading into Sunday's regular season finale against the Ravens at Paul Brown Stadium.

For the better part of an hour, general manager Ozzie Newsome answered questions about the Ravens' numerous offseason losses, their remaining roster holes and the challenge they would face trying to repeat as Super Bowl champions. Finally, he decided to turn the tables on reporters and ask a question of his own. "I'd like for someone to be able to tell me that we aren't good enough to go to the playoffs right now," Newsome said at the team's annual pre-draft luncheon in mid-April.

The Ravens could be without one of their best defenders Sunday when they play one of the NFL's most dangerous offenses with their season hanging in the balance. Starting defensive tackle Arthur Jones, who is tied for the team lead with five tackles for a loss, missed practice because of a concussion for the third straight day Friday, putting his status for Sunday's game with the Cincinnati Bengals in jeopardy. Jones, who suffered the injury during last week's 41-7 loss to the New England Patriots, has to pass a baseline test as part of the NFL's concussion protocol to be cleared to play Sunday.

With one game left in the regular season, the outlook does not look good for the Ravens, whose playoff fate is out of their control even if they beat the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Missing the playoffs? I don't see that one coming when I looked into my crystal ball before the season started. But the Ravens still have a chance, so keep your fingers crossed that this won't be my last edition of these four bold predictions. 1. TORREY SMITH WILL BREAK MICHAEL JACKSON'S RECORD Smith has slowed down in recent weeks, but with 1,101 receiving yards this season, he is within striking distance of the team's single-season receiving mark.
