Heading into this match, the Ravens are 5-1 to the Bengals’ 4-2. While both teams appear to be in dominant form, one must acknowledge that this is the first proper test for the Bengals in this campaign, so the motivation must be high in their camps. Even if they are not, Baltimore Ravens’ Justin Madubuike has issued a terrifying warning to rile them up.

Justin Madubuike promises a fiery encounter against Cincinnati Bengals

Ahead of the spicy matchup between the Ravens and Bengals, Ravens DT Justin Madubuike had some interesting comments to make. According to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley, Justin revealed to him how he sensed negativity heading into this match. “There’s definitely more hostility in the air,” he said.

Justin further shared that he heard some things the Bengals have said, but he is going to respond physically in the game. He ended by promising a “bloodbath”. “We’re just going to talk with our pads and our helmets,” he said. “It’s going to be a bloodbath for sure,” he added.

One thing is for certain, the Bengals would certainly hope for a close encounter. Over the last three years, the Ravens have obliterated the Bengals in this fixture. The Ravens have won the past three matchups by scores of 38-3, 27-3, and 49-13, and have a five-game winning streak over the Bengals.

Despite the stats not favoring Cincinnati, this year’s fixture certainly seems different. With trash talk from both sides and the teams being in fiery form heading into this fixture, it looks like we have an entertaining encounter on our hands. Historically, this fixture has had a lot of hostility thanks to the teams being city rivals.

The rivalry originated when the Ravens were formed following the relocation of the Cleveland Browns, with whom the Bengals also have a rivalry. While the Ravens have dominated this fixture for the years and buried this rivalry, this match certainty has the potential to reignite the long-lost battle.
