C'mon Teddy. You've got two games in five days. Let's get both of them right -- starting with this Sunday's game again the Bengals. The Ravens have been foiling the prognosticators left and right over recent weeks. The dog -- like everyone -- has made some wrong choices. But, who didn't? Hopefully Teddy will be back on track, leading to ... ice cream! If Teddy the Pigskin Picking Pup ends the season with a winning record (or probably, at least close to one) the folks over at Frosty Paws promised to throw an ice cream party for the needy pups at Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter.

The Cincinnati Bengals ran into a buzz saw named Tom Brady last Sunday night during an ugly loss to the New England Patriots. The 43-17 blowout raised questions about the Bengals' ability to defend elite offenses without injured Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the lineup. The Patriots piled up 505 yards of total offense against a Cincinnati defense that entered last week having allowed the fewest points in the NFL. In their first loss of the season, the Bengals (3-1) struggled mightily to contain Patriots tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Tim Wright, who had a combined 11 catches for 185 yards and two touchdowns.

A roundup of NFL experts' picks for Sunday's game between the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals. * CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco says the Bengals will win, 23-20, because the Ravens offensive line isn't good enough to stop the Bengals' defensive front. The Ravens might be playing for their playoff lives here. The Bengals, though, are playing consecutive road games. And they will be without Geno Atkins the rest of the way. But that Ravens offensive line isn't good. The Bengals front is good.

The Ravens persevered through key injuries, an early division-heavy schedule, the challenge of grasping a new offense and seemingly daily off-the-field distractions to finish the first quarter of the regular season with a 3-1 record. But as players and coaches exited the locker room late Sunday afternoon after a 38-10 blowout of the Carolina Panthers, the solid start to the season was tempered by an understanding of the challenges ahead. Coach John Harbaugh and his players won't be talking this week about anything beyond Sunday's game in Indianapolis against the formidable Colts, but it's not a stretch to suggest that the next five weeks could define the Ravens' regular-season.

In eager anticipation of the 2013 NFL season, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will take a daily look at one of the 13 opponents on the Ravens' regular-season schedule. Today is the Cincinnati Bengals. The Ravens are the back-to-back AFC North champions, but this year, the Cincinnati Bengals are the team many NFL talking heads believe will challenge the Ravens' reign. The Bengals have drafted well, especially on offense, where Andy Dalton and A.J. Green are one of the NFL's top quarterback-receiver tandems.

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that weekend. On Monday night, the Cincinnati Bengals come to Baltimore, so I'm happy to start the season off by chatting with Joe Reedy , who has covered the Bengals as The Cincinnati Enquirer's Bengals beat reporter since 2009. MV: Andy Dalton was a pleasant surprise last season, becoming the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to throw 20 or more touchdown passes while starting in eight or more wins.

Baltimore Sun staff members give their thoughts on the Ravens ' game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1 of the 2014 NFL season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: It was 2013 all over again. The Ravens got off to a terrible start, Joe Flacco made a couple of head-scratching mistakes, and the Ravens totally abandoned their running game. Then, after a long touchdown pass to Steve Smith almost made it all not matter, their defense let down in the fourth quarter, another characteristic of last year's team.

Each Wednesday, blogger Jon Meoli highlights five stats that really mean something for the Ravens. Seven - Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was picked off seven times in two games against Baltimore, representing over a third of his regular season total of 21. Dalton has thrown 11 career interceptions against the Ravens, the most of any opponent. His 62.4 passer rating in six career games against the Ravens is third-worst against any team he has faced, and well down from his career mark of 85.7.

The Cincinnati Bengals' offensive production won't rest on Akili Smith's arm, but his confidence. Smith has completed 64.9 percent of his passes, throwing two touchdowns and no interceptions on 74 attempts in the preseason. He's seemingly found a comfort level in the pocket and has been sacked only once. Still, the Bengals are thrilled beyond the numbers he's stacked up in the preseason. "We haven't had this type of direction in a while," offensive tackle Willie Anderson said. "I'm not saying we're going to be great or go to the Super Bowl or anything, but it's been a while since we've had that type of direction at the quarterback position."

Bryan Robinson, who has been there before, wants to show his new Cincinnati Bengals teammates how to make the playoffs this season. "If I can just share some of my knowledge, it would be that playing defense is an attitude," the ninth-year veteran said. "It's wanting to stop that other team, not panicking when you're in certain situations, but overcoming those situations and learning from them." Robinson, 31, signed a three-year, $6 million free-agent contract with the Bengals in March as a run-stuffing tackle who could push the defense to a new level.

The Cincinnati Bengals have emerged as one of the top feel-good stories - on and off the field - through three games. Undefeated and atop the AFC North standings, the Bengals are the current front-runners in the division race. They're ranked first in the NFL in yards per pass and fewest sacks allowed. Their defense has allowed the fewest points in the league. Away from the field, they have received an outpouring of support for defensive tackle Devon Still and his 4-year-old daughter, Leah.

Congratulations to Cleveland Browns fans. They finally have a competitive team back in the National Football League. The Browns were on that level in December 2002, the last time they went to the playoffs. Of course, they lost in the first round to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but after two weeks of the 2014 season, Cleveland is making the AFC North race interesting. The Cincinnati Bengals (2-0) are still the favorite to repeat as division champions, but the other three teams - Ravens, Browns, Steelers - have split their first two games.

When the Ravens' offensive line and fullback Kyle Juszczyk stepped in unison to their right Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers defense was convinced that a trademark outside-zone run was headed in that direction. It was a faulty assumption, as quarterback Joe Flacco sold the Steelers on his play-action fake before lobbing the football to tight end Owen Daniels wide open in the left corner of the end zone for the Ravens' first touchdown of a 26-6 victory. How Daniels slipped out for the 2-yard score during the first quarter at M&T Bank Stadium was an example of the kind of offensive balance the Ravens are hoping to build.

John Harbaugh walked toward the back of the bench to exhort the fans, wagged four fingers in the air to signal the start of the final quarter and welcomed big defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to the sideline with a flying chest bump that left the Ravens' head coach falling backward.   Despite one of the most trying weeks in franchise history, Harbaugh told general manager Ozzie Newsome on Wednesday that he sensed his team was ready to play well and was he ever prophetic. The Ravens broke the trend of close games against their biggest rival by dominating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-6, in front of an announced 71,181 at M&T Bank Stadium and a prime-time television audience.

When the Ravens' pass rushers went after Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton on Sunday, they got stonewalled by his blockers. The Ravens finished with zero sacks and zero quarterback hits in the 23-16 defeat, as Dalton had plenty of time to operate. The Ravens play the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight at M&T Bank Stadium and will need to generate pressure against star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. "Yeah, we got to do a better job of trying to get to him," said outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil,  who had one tackle in the opener.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: As much as he's struggled against the Cincinnati Bengals, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has flourished in recent years against the Steelers, throwing eight touchdown passes and just one interception in his past seven games against them. Flacco threw the ball 62 times Sunday. That's certainly not the recipe offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak wants to rely on. Steve Smith and Dennis Pitta both had big games against the Bengals, but Ravens receivers dropped eight passes.

A day after running back Ray Rice's contract was terminated, Ravens coach John Harbaugh reaffirmed his belief in Bernard Pierce, who didn't touch the ball after fumbling on his sixth carry in Sunday's season opener. "Bernard has been very good. He has a great attitude, good demeanor," Harbaugh said. "You don't lose faith in a player because of a bad play. Bernard is still on his way to becoming, I would say, a very good player, and I've been saying that all along. "I have the utmost confidence in him. … He's not going to be perfect - none of us are - but Bernard Pierce is a big part of what we're doing, just as are Justin [Forsett and]

Emotional about Ray Rice's release and still stinging from a season-opening defeat, the Ravens play AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in two days. The quick turnaround looms for the Ravens following a disappointing game Sunday in which they lost, 23-16, to the Cincinnati Bengals. The potential of falling into an 0-2 hole in the division makes the Steelers game a pivitol one for a team that just dismissed one of its top players. "It was a tough loss," veteran defensive end Chris Canty said.
