Cincinnati Bengals (0-5) at Baltimore Ravens (3-2)

Sunday, October 13, 1PM ET

After narrowly avoiding an upset at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Baltimore Ravens need a easy win to get back on track. Luckily for them, the schedulers slated them to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6. Sounds like about as easy as wins come in the NFL.

With that said, it won’t be a cakewalk for the Ravens. AFC North matchups never are. While they’ve yet to win a game this season, the Bengals have come close on a couple of occasions. More often than not, though, their awful defense simply isn’t up to the task. The Cincinnati D has been downright terrible all year long, which is why they’ll lose this one as well.

Look back at last weekend. They couldn’t keep an explosive Kyler Murray contained, allowing him to work his offense into field goal range before the clock struck zero. If they had a hard time with Murray, Lamar Jackson will be a nightmare on Sunday.

The Bengals are desperate for their first win of the 2019 campaign. Regardless, they won’t find it here in Week 6. The Ravens are superior in nearly every aspect, and have home-field advantage. This may be one of the safest picks of Week 6.

Prediction: Ravens win 42-23
