Joe Flacco has said that he expects the AFC North to be a "dog fight" this season.
The Cincinnati Bengals currently top the division, while the other three sides all have four defeats in 2013.
The Baltimore Ravens quarterback told the team's official website: "I still have a lot of confidence. It's going to be a dog fight just like it always is in this division.
"[The Bengals] probably have a little bit of a stronghold on it right now, but we haven't played them yet. We still have a lot of games to go.
"We just have to continue to look forward and continue to be confident. Like I said, it's a dog fight. It always is. We just have to try to win as many games as we can."
The Ravens topped the division last season before going on to win the Super Bowl.
