Final score predictions for Ravens’ Wild Card matchup vs. Bengals

The Baltimore Ravens travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals in the Wild Card round. It will mark the final matchup between both teams of the season, as Baltimore won in Week 5 while Cincinnati took the Week 18 contest.

Quarterback Lamar Jackson was ruled out for the contest, marking his sixth-straight missed game since injuring his knee in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos. Quarterbacks Tyler Huntley and Anthony Brown are expected to both get playing time, which could be an interesting strategy by the Ravens.

Baltimore rested plenty of their key players in Week 18, all for this matchup against the Bengals. However, Cincinnati proves too much for Baltimore due to their high flying offense and questions about the Ravens’ own offense.

The Ravens will be getting back most of the players that were held out in Week 18 and will be able to contain the Bengals offense until the fourth quarter. Running back J.K. Dobbins and tight end Isaiah Likely score the Ravens’ touchdowns, but the Baltimore defense gives up a late touchdown to lose the game.
