While Week 5 did bring with a win for Baltimore, the team did suffer a loss in the process. Already dealing with a depleted secondary, safety Tony Jefferson will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Needing the back end of the defense to step up, the Ravens will now rely on the likes of Chuck Clark and DeShon Elliott to pick up some of the slack.
Baltimore's injury problems don't stop there. Heading into Sunday, both Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown and Patrick Onwausor are game-time decisions. Onwausor is an integral part of the defense, while Brown is a speedy option that can allow Lamar Jackson, who's been taking more sacks each week, to get the ball out. If both were to miss, it'd be another blow for the Ravens.
As for the Bengals, it's been a rough start to Zac Taylor's time as head coach. At 0-5 and coming off a loss to the Cardinals, not much has gone right. To make matters worse, the Bengals are still without star wide receiver A.J. Green. That is good news for the Ravens, however, as Green has torched them in the past.
Even with the struggles, Baltimore isn't taking this opponent lightly. No matter the record, the team is preparing for an AFC North battle. Here's everything you need to know:
