In the 2nd NFL network game, it features a superb defense against a high powered offense. And, these two rivals combined for 60 total points when they met in Cincinnati last season. However, this game may be different since it will be raining sideways with mucho wind at Paul Brown Stadium. The Ravens and QB Steve McNair have had an offense to match their defense the past few weeks (impressive). And if not for the weather factor, I'd say play McNair in a shootout...but I don't see him putting up terrific stats in a monsoon. Play RB Jamal Lewis to destroy Cincy's soft front. I also like TE Todd Heap as the Ravens go ball control. For the Bengals, downgrade QB Carson Palmer due to conditions and the Raven D...but still play him if you have him over most other QB options. WR Chad Johnson will be Palmer's top target...but throwing the football will be difficult tonight. I do like RB Rudi Johnson here as I believe he'll get close to 25 touches in the rain.
