Cincin­nati Ben­gals at Bal­ti­more Ravens

The Washington Post Sunday - - D6 NFL WEEK 17 -

1 p.m. WUSA-9, WJZ-13, Ravens by 91/ 2 Ben­gals WR Chad Ochocinco (an­kle) will not play and WR Ter­rell Owens (knee) is out, but WR Jerome Simp­son had six catches for 124 yards and two touch­downs last week against San Diego. The Ravens are 17-1 against teams un­der .500 over the past three sea­sons. The lone loss came at Cincin­nati in Septem­ber. Bal­ti­more K Billy Cun­diff needs three touch­backs to break the NFL sin­gle­sea­son record on kick­offs from the 30-yard line. The Ravens have 18 turnovers; the team record for fewest in a sea­son is 21 (2008). SMARTER STATS: Bal­ti­more is ob­vi­ously the mar­quee team here; Cincin­nati’s of­fense has dis­ap­pointed all year. But don’t sleep on two young Ben­gals de­fend­ers — tackle Geno Atkins has the most quar­ter­back hur­ries of any rookie, with 16, and only Detroit su­per­rookie Ndamukong Suh has more sacks among first-year play­ers than Cincin­nati end Car­los Dun­lap, who has eight on the year and seven in his past five games.
