One reason for the Ravens to give their all this Sunday is that it’s another chance for the offense to get in sync with coordinator Jim Caldwell, who replaced the fired Cam Cameron two weeks ago. The Baltimore attack sputtered against Denver in its first foray under Caldwell, then racked up 533 yards against New York.
“That’s the way we can play,” said wide receiver Torrey Smith, who returned from a concussion.
Baltimore won’t have linebacker Ray Lewis (torn triceps) against the Bengals because Harbaugh wants to give the 17-year veteran more time to recover from an injury that has kept him sidelined since Oct. 14.
But the Ravens hope to have back safety Bernard Pollard, who’s missed two straight weeks with a chest injury, and receiver Anquan Boldin, who left with a bruised shoulder in the second half against New York.
