The winless Bengals rank ninth in passing offense but just 27th in net yards per attempt, and they’ll be without two of their best playmakers. Quarterback Andy Dalton has completed 63.2% of his passes and thrown seven touchdownsagainst four interceptions, but he grades as one of the 10 worst starters, according to Pro Football Focus. He’s taken 20 sacks in five games. Cincinnati’s top receiver, Tyler Boyd, has given the Ravens fits, with 23 catches for 365 yards and two touchdowns in six games.
Quarterback Lamar Jackson had his worst passing game of the season in Sunday’s 26-23 overtime win over the Steelers, averaging just 5.8 yards per attempt, throwing three interceptions and taking five sacks. Jackson’s passing numbers have trended in the wrong direction since the first two games. Rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown made a sensational touchdown catch in traffic against the Steelers but missed a chunk of the game with an ankle injury.
