Coach Harbaugh made it clear on Monday afternoon during his weekly press conference that there is nothing comfortable about playing at home on Sunday against the Bengals. If there is one lesson the Ravens and their coaches have learned this season, it’s that every team is a new challenge and a difficult one at that. Even Joe Flacco said after the teams’ loss to Seattle, “It’s not easy to win in the NFL.”
So why should things be any different this week when Cincinnati comes to town? Two words: Andy Dalton.
The rookie quarterback has led the Bengals to a 6-3 record, the same as the Ravens. On a conference call with the Baltimore media Wednesday morning, Dalton talked about the challenges of facing the Ravens defense, his growth from Week 1 to Week 11 and more.
