The Ravens have a 6-1 record against the Bengals when Lamar Jackson is the starting quarterback, and he’s 2-0 as a starter in Cincinnati.
Baltimore is looking to snap its three-game losing streak in Cincinnati, and their star quarterback could be the biggest x-factor.
With Thursday’s practices underway, we’re looking at 10 players to watch.
QB Lamar Jackson
Jackson was 17-22 passing for 169 yards and an interception in the opener.
The Ravens have a 6-1 record against the Bengals when Jackson is the starting quarterback, and he’s 2-0 as a starter in Cincinnati.
QB Joe Burrow
The Cleveland defense bottled up Burrow — the NFL’s new highest-paid player — as the Browns opened the season with a 24-3 win over the Bengals on Sunday.
Burrow went just 14-for-31 for 82 yards with no touchdowns.
RB Gus Edwards
Edwards had 32-yards on 8 carries in the opener and he’ll likely be the starter at running back with J.K. Dobbins out for the season.
RB Joe Mixon
Mixon had 13-carries for 56-yards in the opener and the Bengals will look to get him going against a stout Ravens defensive front.
WR Ja'Marr Chase
Chase, who finished with five catches for 39 yards in the loss to Cleveland, will look to take advantage of an injured Baltimore secondary.
Stephens had 10 tackles in the opener and he’ll be tasked with slowing down the Bengals trio of pass catchers.
WR Zay Flowers
Flowers had 9 catches for 78 yards on 10 targets in his debut.
CB Mike Hilton
Hilton had four tackles in the opener, and he’ll have intriguing matchups against Odell Beckham and Zay Flowers.
LB Odafe Oweh
Oweh logged 3 tackles and 3 quarterback hits in the opener and he’ll be a problem for Bengals left tackle Orlando Brown Jr.
