The second-place Ravens will play the third-place Bengals at home in a Week 12 AFC North matchup.
The Ravens (5-5) were first in the division before their loss last week to the Dallas Cowboys. They have to win this week to avoid losing any more ground to the first-place Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bengals (3-6-1) need a win if they want to remain in playoff contention.
The Bengals have won five in a row against the Ravens, but today they will be missing wide receiver A.J. Green, who is out with a hamstring injury. Green has historically been very successful against Baltimore - in their last meeting he had 10 receptions for 227 yards - so the Ravens will definitely try to capitalize on his absence.
Elvis Dumervil will be active for the first time since Week 5 today, but seven others with will be inactive for the Ravens, including cornerback Jimmy Smith.
