Andy Dalton, Cincinnati QB
Dalton has a solid history of bouncing back from bad outings, which is something he will need to do after tossing three interceptions in last week’s 22-20 overtime loss at Miami. Dalton is 7-4 with an average passer rating of 80.5 in games after throwing multiple interceptions.
Vinny Rey, Cincinnati LB
Rey played well last week at Miami, recording 10 tackles in his second career start while filling in for the injured Rey Maualuga. Rey will need to play well again against Baltimore running back Ray Rice, who has feasted on the Bengals with nine TDs in 10 career games.
Brandon Thompson, Cincinnati DT
The second-year player will attempt to fill the giant cleats of Geno Atkins, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury last week. Thompson has been solid in limited action, but can he be as effective playing three times as many snaps?
Marlon Brown, Baltimore WR
The emerging undrafted rookie from the University of Georgia had a career-high two touchdown receptions last week in Cleveland to give him a team-high total of five, which equals the combined total of the rest of the players on the team.
Eugene Monroe, Baltimore OT
The former first-round pick (eighth overall) is in his fourth game with the Ravens following his trade from Jacksonville. He has started each of the previous three at left tackle and has allowed just one sack and no additional quarterback hits.
Terrell Suggs, Baltimore LB
The five-time Pro Bowler has at least one sack in seven of his last eight games and his season total of nine is tied for fourth in the NFL. He has 7.5 sacks in 11 career games against Cincinnati.
