BALTIMORE — Looking to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time in over two years, the Ravens welcome the Cincinnati Bengals to M&T Bank Stadium with plenty on the line in the tightly-contested AFC North.
With both teams standing at 6-3 and right behind Pittsburgh, the stakes are far higher than anyone imagined at the beginning of the season with the Bengals starting a rookie quarterback and no longer having the services of volatile wide receivers Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens. The Bengals have won three of the last four meetings against the Ravens and boast the AFC’s best road record at 4-1. However, the Ravens are one of only three teams (Green Bay and New Orleans) to be undefeated at home this season and have won 14 of their last 15 games at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Ravens will be wearing purple jerseys and white pants while Cincinnati wears its white jerseys and black pants this afternoon.
As expected, inside linebacker Ray Lewis will not play against the Bengals as he deals with a toe injury. His streak of 57 consecutive starts comes to an end as he’ll miss his first game since the finale of the 2007 season. The question will now become whether he will be ready for the Ravens’ next game in four days against the San Francisco 49ers.
Wide receiver Lee Evans is active for the first time since Week 2, and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe also returns after missing the Ravens’ last four games with a hamstring injury. He will start in place of Lewis at inside linebacker next to Jameel McClain.
As expected, the Bengals will be without rookie wide receiver A.J. Green, who was listed as doubtful with a knee injury.
