Ravens-Bengals picks from Baltimore Sun staff members

Kevin Cowherd

Bengals 21, Ravens 17

Ravens are still banged up with nothing to play for except momentum going into the playoffs. Same situation for Bengals, but they're at home.

Edward Lee

Bengals 21, Ravens 20

Only the Ravens have something to play for — a remote chance to move up to the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs. But they haven't dispelled their history of lackadaisical showings on the road, and Cincinnati Bengals are an emerging team that is still rolling from knocking the Pittsburgh Steelers out of the postseason.

Ravens 17, Bengals 14

This game might hold your interest for a half.

Peter Schmuck

Ravens 24, Bengals 20

Joe Flacco will get his road groove on and fine tune the offense for next week's playoff opener. No time to turn down the volume after finally pumping it up in last week's blowout victory over the Giants.

Matt Vensel

Ravens 20, Bengals 17

More than anything, the Ravens have momentum to play for, and they will get a little with a sloppy win in Cincy.

Aaron Wilson

Ravens 30, Bengals 20

Ray Rice traditionally owns Rey Maualuga, and this relatively meaningless game proves no different as Ravens contain Andy Dalton, A.J. Green.

Jeff Zrebiec

Ravens 20, Bengals 17

Both John Harbaugh and Marvin Lewis seem intent on going all out to win this game but the Ravens actually have something tangible to gain with the potential of getting the third seed. At least on paper, that gives them a slight edge.
