Week 11 of the 2023 NFL season kicks off with an intriguing AFC North rivalry between two teams with a lot of history and no love lost. Both teams look to be in the upper echelon of the conference, and as the season grows older, wins — especially within the division — become vital. The stakes are high, and so will be the intensity for this one.
Who is playing tonight, what time does the game start, and how can you watch it?
Who Plays on Thursday Night Football Tonight?
- Teams: Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens
- Location M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, Maryland
The 7-3 Baltimore Ravens will host their bitter rivals on Thursday night when the 5-4 Cincinnati Bengals come to town for an important AFC North clash. The Ravens are on top of the division right now while the Bengals are in last place. However, the difference between the two teams is only 1.5 games, and a win by Cincinnati tonight could put them right back in the mix.
MVP candidate and Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson has the Ravens looking like one of the NFL’s best teams right now. His dynamic ability in and out of the pocket, coupled with a tough physical style of defense, has the Ravens flying high in 2023.
Every game matters, especially within your division, but Baltimore has a real chance at securing the No. 1 seed in the AFC if they continue to play well. A win tonight would go a long way in keeping pace with the Kansas City Chiefs.
As for the Bengals, Joe Burrow and company have been dealing with injuries all season. And although they’ve looked like they were “back” at times during the season, it’s been tough sledding so far in 2023. As a result, they’re in the cellar of their division at 5-4 and hovering around the .500 mark.
A win over the hated Ravens on Thursday will go a long way in further proving their legitimacy and could act as a launch point for the Bengals as they look to be a late-season run into the playoffs.
Tonight promises to be one of the better Thursday Night Football matchups with two teams with much on the line and a long history of disdain for one another.
