Default Steelers or Ravens?

Who do you think the Bengals will have an easier time beating?

Only concerned abojut the Steelers at this juncture, but I will say the Bengals need designed plays to Hawkins next Sunday. I really think his shifty ability will be trouble for the Steelers.

Thanks man! Both will be tough games, but I believe that our Bengals can pull them off. If we can score 4 TDs and maybe boot a few through the uprights, they will be very winnable.

Steelers will be the much tougher to face. They will literally be fighting for their playoff lives (as will the Bengals), it will be a grudge match type of game. It will take 60 minutes of focus and mistake free football to pull off the win in Pittsburgh.

The Ravens game, should we beat Pittsburgh should really be an interesting game. As the Bengals will likely have a few players banged up from the Pittsburgh game. On the other hand, the Ravens will likely already have their playoff fate set, and they will only be trying to hold onto the division title and home field advantage for the WC game.

Steelers will be tougher by far. Despite losing, the team looked sharper today and they will be at home. The Ravens look pretty beat up and won't have much to lose the last week of the season.

Definitely the Ravens. They're terrible on the road and they aren't the same team that beat us in week 1.

If Dalton averages over 30 passes per game in 2014, I win. If he averages less than 30, you win. Loser can't post in any Dalton threads for 1 year. You game?

neither its the afc north and every game is tough...granted balt spanked us week 1 but score was a lot closer than that for the most part....we r not the same team...i say neither hey dont count out the browns against pittsburgh the last game of the season...

Tbh i dont see us beating pitt...maybe the balt game but pitts lost 2 in a row...n then play us at home fighting for a playoff spot cause they are no longer in the drivers seat...i do not see us winning this game

the baltimore game will be tough if we beat pitt or not...also if they lost to giants itd be what four in a row...balt wants division and or a better seed in playoffs...so i mean then they will be playing for clinching division...so none are easy

afc north is the black and blue league...

Both teams seem to be reeling.

Hopefully that carries into next week with the Steelers.

I want to believe that that game will be easier.

Ravens

We don't match well with the Steelers. Even though the Steelers are losing games, they're playing better football than bmore. Bmore looks horrible right now. I think they made the wrong move firing Cam.

Ravens. They're on a landslide to bad right now. Pittsburgh played well enough today. Steelers is the tougher game.

Baltimore is on a roll in the wrong direction. That game is at home. And Pittsburgh is actually better than them. I'll go with the Ravens as to who I'd rather match-up against.

Really though, I think the Bengals are the best of the three teams at the moment. There may be some Bengal bias in there, but in my opinion, they can beat them both. The Philly game makes me worry a bit that the Offense may not be able to get it done (especially in Pittsburgh), but if they play well, they should win. I don't worry about the D, and I think we'll shut both teams down.

I'd love to beat Pitt and face Baltimore in the playoffs somehow. I think we absolutely have the best chance in the playoffs against Baltimore. Our run defense has caught fire so as long as they can shut Ray Rice down it's over. Flacco *****. I get tired of seeing Big Ben convert 3rd down after 3rd down after 3rd down. I'd rather face the Ravens 100/100 times.

Both. It is possible, and it may be the best opportunity we've had in several years. The Steelers are down on one knee, and the Ravens are a mess right now. The Bengals control their own destiny this season like never before in the last few years. I don't see the Ravens beating the Giants in New York, and if we top the Steelers in Pittsburgh, it turns the division inside out and sets up a sure fire AFC North title on the line the last game in Cincy.

They controlled their destiny last year in week 17. If they had beat the Ravens they were in. Naturally they lost but thankfully the Jets lost later that night too.

Neither. Both of these games are grudge matches, with a dose of playoff implications, and a pinch of bad blood mixed in for good measure. Time for the Dalton gang to put on their Big Boy pants.

The Bengals can't have an easier team beating the ravens than the steelers while having an easier time beating the steelers than the ravens.

There is no both, because that would be..well... silly.

I just read Clark Judge on CBS web and he asks " Will the Ravens win another gane - probably but only because they play the Bengals."

We need to change this perception.

We have had a fun season but if you cannot at least split wiith division rivals you really don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

If we play like we did during our winning streak, we will win both games. If we play like we did against Dallas and Eagles ( too many mistakes on offense and defensive mistakes against Dallas) we will lose both games.

I think team will be focused and win both games and win the division. We will get the highest rated wild card at home which will be the Colts. That game is very winnable so maybe we can at least get to second round this year.

Andy needs to have geat games which means we have to run the ball. Harder to do this against Steelers than Ravens at this point.

The Ravens have been playing some of the worst football since the halfway point. I think the obvious choice is them. Pitt is going to be tuff, this is a game the bengals normally lose, maybe we turn a corner and end a lot of bad streaks. But to be real, the steelers are going to have to lose the game more than we win it. Hoping for the best!!!

All I know for sure is... All I want for Christmas is a W against Pitts.
As they say, one game at a time.
