Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Week 1 Game Preview
Nick Wass/Associated Press

Week 1 of the 2014 NFL season is here. For the Baltimore Ravens, one of their biggest games of the year will come in the season opener.

The Cincinnati Bengals come to town after overcoming Baltimore to win the AFC North in 2014. Prior to that, the Ravens won the division in 2011 and 2012 while going 3-1 versus Cincinnati in those seasons. 

However, Baltimore floundered to an 8-8 record in 2013, and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007. Since that year, Baltimore, Cincinnati and the Pittsburgh Steelers have each won the AFC North twice. 

Speaking of the Steelers, the Ravens will host them in Week 2 on Thursday Night Football. That means the winners of the past six division titles will play in Baltimore in the first two weeks of the 2014 NFL season. 

The Ravens could go a long way in being this year's AFC North winner if they can beat Cincinnati in Week 1. Here is my breakdown of the matchup.
