Things didn’t go the Cincinnati Bengals’ way in Week 1. Poor weather and early-season rust held the team’s high-powered offense without a touchdown in a surprising 24-3 loss to the division-rival Cleveland Browns.

Getting back on track in Week 2 won’t be easy, as the Bengals face another division-rival in the Baltimore Ravens. Lamar Jackson and the Ravens didn’t light the world on fire in their first game under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, but still pulled off an easy 25-9 win over the Houston Texans.

Week 2 will provide both teams with an opportunity to improve. After a miserable Week 1, the Bengals will be motivated to get Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins back into the end zone. The Ravens, meanwhile, will try to get their explosive passing game going after Jackson was held without a score in Week 1.
