The last time the Ravens met the Cincinnati Bengals, Cincinnati cornerback Leon Hall was on injured reserve, Chris Crocker was the starting strong safety, and Terence Newman and Jason Allen were earning paychecks in Texas. When the AFC North rivals open their season Monday night at M&T Bank Stadium, the Ravens will introduce themselves to a retooled Bengals secondary. Hall is back from a torn Achilles tendon that sidelined him for the final eight games of 2011, Crocker has been replaced by Taylor Mays, and Newman and Allen were signed in the offseason from the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans, respectively.

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?

Trying to figure out what the Ravens will do every Sunday has become an exercise in futility. Another surprising loss last weekend dropped them to 3-5 and logic says they will lose a fourth straight game Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium against the Cincinnati Bengals, but you never know with this team. There is always one thing you can count on, though: these bold predictions ... usually being wrong. 1. THE RAVENS WILL SCORE AN EARLY TOUCHDOWN: Slow starts have been a major problem for the Ravens, who have trailed at halftime in each of their past five games.

The French novelist Victor Hugo said, "The forties are the old age of youth, while the fifties are the youth of old age."In these kinder '90s, however, society's obsession with youth is gradually evolving. "Middle-aged" is no longer considered matronly -- as our latest make-over contest winners certainly demonstrate. A positive attitude is still the cornerstone of beauty at any age."When a woman reaches 50, it is time to stop and assess her changing body -- without the changes being too drastic," says Leon Hall, international style consultant and a regular contributor to "The Joan Rivers Show" "fashion police."

The Cincinnati Bengals were dealt a crushing blow last week with the news that $55 million defensive tackle Geno Atkins had been lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Although the Bengals remain atop the AFC North with a two-game lead over the Ravens, the impact of not having a disruptive interior force such as Atkins will likely have a hefty impact on their outlook. Atkins is regarded as a linchpin, leading the defense with six sacks after topping all NFL interior linemen with 12.5 sacks last season.

Dolphins 22, Bengals 20 Strategy: The Bengals want to be balanced offensively. They run a single-back offense and often use two tight ends to create mismatches. They use 2013 first-round pick Tyler Eifert all over the formation while Jermaine Gresham is usually a traditional in-line tight end. They have a rhythm passing game with quarterback Andy Dalton taking shorter drops to get the ball out quickly. The Bengals run a 4-3 base defense and keep opposing quarterbacks on their toes with a variety of looks, blitzing on one play and dropping seven men into zone coverage on the next.

Kevin Cowherd: Ravens 31, Bengals 21: Ray Rice and Anquan Boldin make teammate T.J. Houshmandzadeh's return to Cincy a happy one. Jamison Hensley: Bengals 27, Ravens 20: Ravens just played a physical and emotional game at New York on Monday. The quick turnaround defeats the Ravens more than the Bengals. Edward Lee: Bengals 16, Ravens 14: The Bengals don't have a Darrelle Revis, but Leon Hall and Johnathan Joseph are pretty tough. And Carson Palmer seems to play well against the Ravens.
