Week 3: Cincinnati Bengals – Sept. 27, 2015 (1 p.m.)

2014 Record: 10-5-1
Head-to-Head Record: 20-18
Last Meeting: Ravens 16 – Bengals 23 (Sept. 7, 2014)

Baltimore will be hoping this year’s home opener is much better than the heartbreaker from last season.

The Ravens opened up the 2014 season with a disappointing loss at home that ended the Bengals four-game losing streak in Baltimore. The Bengals stunned the Ravens on kickoff weekend with A.J. Green‘s go-ahead 77-yard TD catch with 4:58 left. What made the outcome more disheartening was that the go-ahead score came just 48 seconds after Steve Smith caught an 80-yard touchdown pass to give the Ravens their only lead of the game.

Mike Nugent kicked five field goals to give the Bengals a 15-0 halftime lead, but they had failed to score a touchdown until Green snatched a tipped ball out of the air and took it to the house.

It is becoming a common occurrence in that the meeting with the Bengals is the third time in four seasons that the Ravens home opener has been against Cincy.  The home opener is the start of a three-game stretch against divisional opponents and the next game comes on a short week at the most hated enemy.
