    The Bengals are coming off an impressive road win over the Colts to begin the 2018 season.However Bengals Joe Mixon Jersey , the Ravens were arguably the most impressive of any NFL team in the first week of action. They absolutely demolished the Bills en route to a 47-3 win, which frankly was one of the biggest beatdowns the NFL has seen in recent memory.This isn’t Alabama vs. the little sisters of the poor. The league is created in a way that promotes parity and competitive games when even the best teams face the worst teams.So when an NFL team beats another by 44 points, oddsmakers take notice, and they currently have Baltimore as a 1.5-point favorite over Cincinnati in Week 2. Now, it has to be pointed out that the Bengals have won seven of the last nine meetings, and one of those losses was with A.J. Green out of the lineup. The other was with Ken Zampese still calling the offense, which is arguably worse than not having Green.The Bengals also went into Baltimore and knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs last season. On one hand, that gives you more confidence the Bengals can take care of business at home. On the other hand, the revenge factor is very real Bengals Geno Atkins Jersey , and the Ravens will be hell-bent on getting theirs on Thursday Night Football.Then again, you could argue the Bengals want some measure of revenge themselves for the 20-0 home embarrassment they suffered to Baltimore in Week 1 last season. The Bengals take pride in defending their home turf, and they’ll be ready to ensure a repeat of 2017 doesn’t happen in 2018.All told, I would give the Bengals an edge, but I’d only favor them by 1-1.5 points. Don’t be surprised if the line moves a point or two by Thursday to make this a pick ‘em. But if history has told us anything, don’t pick Baltimore against a healthy Green and a competent offensive coordinator.Cowboys sign CB C.J. Goodwin off Bengals’ practice squad The Bengals have a vacant spot on their practice squad.That’s because the Cowboys just signed cornerback C.J. Goodwin from Cincinnati’s practice squad on Tuesday.Goodwin, who was signed by the Bengals on August 4, had four tackles in the preseason finale against the Colts before being waived during final cuts. He has spent the entire season on the practice squad thus far, but now he’ll get a shot to make his mark on the Cowboys’ 53-man roster. He was originally an undrafted free agent signed by the Steelers in 2014 Bengals Tyler Boyd Jersey , though he never played a regular season game for them. He then moved onto the Falcons and Cardinals. In 2016 with Atlanta, Goodwin played in 14 games with one start and recorded two pass defenses and six tackles. He played on the Falcons’ Super Bowl team in 2016.Goodwin has spent time this year with the Giants and 49ers. In his final season of college at California University of Pennsylvania, Goodwin posted 11 catches for 126 yards and one touchdown. He also added one kick return that went for 25 yards. From there, he made his way into the NFL as a cornerback, a position the Bengals may now look to find another body at for their practice squad, which now looks like this:TE Moritz hringer* (first-year player, Aalen [Germany]DT Andrew Brown (rookie, Virginia)HB Quinton Flowers (rookie, South Florida)H-B Jordan Franks (rookie Youth Tyler Eifert Jersey , Central Florida)C Brad Lundblade (rookie, Oklahoma State)OT Kent Perkins (first-year player, Texas)CB KeiVarae Russell (third-year player, Notre Dame)WR Kermit Whitfield (first-year player, Florida State)LB Chris Worley (rookie, Ohio State)QB Christian Hackenberg (third-year player, Penn State)*Doesn’t count toward 10-man practice squad limit since he’s part of NFL international program.
