With both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns losing on Sunday, the winner on Monday Night Football will have the division lead to themselves. Though they will only be 1-0, the winning team will be considered the AFC North favorite and they will have already picked up a crucial divisional win.

Going into the game, the Baltimore Ravens have to like their chances to win. They are 4-0 in season openers under John Harbaugh and they have now won eight consecutive regular season games against division opponents. 

However, the Cincinnati Bengals are a determined team this year as they try to put together back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in over 30 seasons. Even though they've dropped three straight to the Ravens, all of these games were determined by a margin of eight points or less. With a young team that is fresh off a surprising playoff berth, the Bengals are not a team to be overlooked. 

The Ravens are going to need to play to their strengths and exploit the Bengals' potential weaknesses for them to walk away victorious. With only a few hours to go till their season opener, here's a look at what the Ravens must do to pull off the victory.
