Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens – CBS, 1:00 PM

Dalton’s looming doubts on third down

Andy Dalton’s 68.6 passer rating on third down throws sandwiches him between two rookie quarterbacks for 31st in the NFL.

Boyd thriving inside and out

After spending 88.4% of his snaps in the slot last season, Tyler Boyd has become more of a threat from all over the field.

Coming up just short of the lead

Geno Atkins ranks fourth among interior defenders with 43 total pressures.

Rookie feeling comfortable in Bengal’s secondary

Since being selected in the second round of the draft, Jesse Bates has quickly become one of the best coverage safeties in the league.

Flacco firing downfield but falling short

Joe Flacco has been targeting pass-catchers deep downfield 13.7% of the time, his highest rate since 2013. However, the Ravens’ signal-caller only has a passer rating of 52.6 on such passes, the third-lowest passer rating in the league.

Collins making them miss but not much else

Alex Collins enters Week 11 with 25 missed tackles forced on the ground, the sixth-most by a running back this season. However, his 2.17 yards after contact per attempt is the second-lowest in the NFL.

Pierce rising to an elite level

With an overall grade of 90.2, Michael Pierce is currently the fifth-highest graded interior defender.

Weddle flying around the field

Eric Weddle has lined up at every position on the field except for defensive line.
