AFC North standings heading into Week 7 of the 2021 NFL schedule
Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) vs Baltimore Ravens (5-1), Sunday at 1 P.M. ET
Not many people would have imagined this game to help dictate the AFC North leader after this one. The Bengals are playing good football but they haven’t played too many tough teams. The Ravens will be their first major test on Sunday.
This game will be the first divisional matchup for Baltimore on the 2021 schedule. They just finished beating the bolts off the Chargers this past week. It wasn’t a close game as the Ravens start to show they’re a true AFC contender.
The youthful Bengals head to town as they try and prove to everyone that they’re a serious squad for the AFC North crown. Many people might not be taking them seriously at the moment but a win here would propel them to contender status. This should be a decent game but another one that the Ravens should emerge from with a win.
The Bengals high-flying offense will show some bright spots and that will cause this game to be closer than some might expect. The home club’s offense is just too talented for the away team’s defense to handle. Add in the fact that the Baltimore’s defense can cause turnovers and that will be a recipe for a Cincinnati loss.
