Baltimore middle linebacker Ray Lewis was asked Wednesday about the environment he expects to see Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium as the Bengals will be playing in front of just their second sellout crowd of the season at home. It wasn’t a big deal to him.
“Really, man, we don’t care. It doesn’t matter,” said Lewis. “They can come watch if they want to come watch. We’ve got to do one thing. We’ve got to go in and get a victory and come up out of there. So, if there is one person in the seats or whether it’s 60,000 in the stands, we don’t care about it. That’s their problem. We’ve got our own problems.
“We don’t have to worry about selling out. We have to worry about trying to keep people out and things like that. We have a different vibe in Baltimore, and that’s a credit to our city, that’s a credit to our fans. So, that’s something they have to worry with, not us.”
The Bengals lost their previous home sellout, 24-17 against Pittsburgh, and are 4-3 at home t

The Baltimore Ravens do not care that the Cincinnati Bengals can reach the playoffs with a victory Sunday. The Ravens aren't interested in the number of tickets the Bengals have sold for their home finale, either.
Even though the Ravens are already assured a fourth straight trip to the postseason, their incentive to win is every bit as strong as that of their division rival...
I'll give the Bengals this: 2011 has been one hell of a season. It's only fitting that the last week of the season promises to be a dramatic blow off top on a couple of levels. The first level is on the field, where the team needs to beat the holy-crap-when-will-it-end Ray Lewis era Ravens. I don't have much to add there except to say that the Bengals are perfectly...
