Webb is a huge loss for them. He was playing on a Revis-level. Hoping this loss is the kick in the butt that they need. Need to come out firing.

We got the Jets at their most desperate time coming off an embarrassing loss and we got their best shot. We got the Pack when their backs were up against the wall and they were coming off a bad loss to the Colts and they put a whoopin on us.

Now, Baltimore gets to face an angry Texans team who just got embarrassed on National TV. We will see exactly what this team is made of this Sunday.

The Packers had a few big players out last night too. I'm not going to put much stock into that right now. Plus, I think Ellerbe's the better player over Lewis as of right now.

The pack still had Rodgers and Clay Matthews... That's huge on both sides of the ball.

A lot of people always make the point about how it's dangerous playing teams coming off of a bad loss.

Perhaps it's time to see if that applies to the Texans as well.

As for the opposing team's injuries, I understand you have to account for them, but I feel like that shouldn't be a major factor considering what happened the last two games.

I don't care how we win. This game has major implicatiosn that Green Bay did not.

No Lewis/Ngata/Webb = Texans win. That's the guts of there defense. I f our o-line doesn't dominate this game, then we will have some serious concerns

Yeah, it looks like Webb and Lewis will be out for sure. Can't find anything on Ngata, I guess we'll know later today.

Still, I'm afraid they have more depth on defense that we haven't seen much of, so I'll probably end up holding my breath the entire week until they play.

We played a Packers team that was all beat up. Look what that got us.

Maybe I'm just overreacting, but I don't think that beatdown we took was just a a case us playing flat and uninspired football. I think the team was exposed for what it really is. AJ is a shell of his former self. Foster is pulling a Chris Johnson act. The offensive line is not in sync. Except for Watt, there's no pass rush, and Jonathan Joseph, our shutdown corner... isn't.

Sorry, but I don't think we're gonna best the Ravens.

I was thinking the very same thing with respect to playing a beat up Packer team. IMHO, I though we couldn't ask for a better week to have played the Packers! LOL.

I somewhat agree with the rest of what you go on to say, except for what's in bold. I am of the opinion that what this team really is, is still in question.

Feels like both fan bases will be confident for next week's game. I'm sure the teams are always confident.

We're going to feel like Foster + Tate/Forsett will run for 250+ on them since the Cowboys did it with their crappy line.

They're going to feel like Packers exposed the Texans weaknesses on defense, and Flacco will be able to pass for 300+.

I personally don't think Flacco=Rodgers, but it should be a good game, and I can't wait for Sunday already. Glad it's a home game.

Joseph needs to show up. Otherwise the Ravens will go to their deep pass, they love to test teams deep. Rice will get his (and get stopped some as well)

Obviously if we can run the ball and stop the deep pass I think those two things will lead to victory.

Also with how the Packers played Watt it will be interesting to see if Wade does anything to help free him up.

I'm not saying they contained him, but he saw a lot of double teams and as a result the team wasn't really getting any pressure last night. If it's going to take a super effort from Watt just to get pressure on the QB I do not like our chances.

Lord forbid Watt going down...that would destroy this defense unlike losing Mario.

Ngata's MRI demonstrated a minor MCL knee sprain. He also re-injured his right shoulder. Most athletes with a grade I MCL tear which this seems to be will be able to return to their sport within 1-2 weeks following their injury. Ngata will probably not be slowed too much this Sunday (I doubt if he misses this game because it's us), but he will be significant risk to aggrevating/re-injuring certainly his shoulder injury and possibly his knee.

I'm not saying that the ravens will walk in with a win in their back pocket but this is a different team than you saw last year.

The defense is getting propped up by the Offense.

Jacoby Jones (yeah yeah- now come all the 'dropsies' posts) has added a nice speed dimension to the Ravens offense. Add in an improved Torrey Smith and its a good problem to have.

The Ravens Defense is not what you are used to- hasn't been for a awhile...I predict a shootout

Joe Flacco is having the best year of his career and Tory Smith is one of the best wideouts in the league this year. Not to mention they have Ray Rice and other nice pieces like Dennis Pita, Anquan Boldin, and as much as Jacoby Jones sucks as a receiver he's having a solid season for them. Will be interesting to see how the defense deals with another QB who's playing at an elite level this year. Oh, Kubiak better get the running game fixed asap.

Flacco's having a good year. But, imo, he's not "elite".

Imo he's having an elite year when you take into account how many long passes he's made this year. I think I heard Brian Billick say that the Ravens lead the league this year in explosive plays and Joe Flacco is a big reason for that. He's not an elite QB, but he's having a very good year.

It doesn't really matter that he is the #8, 9th or 10th- they are are some pretty damn good QB's playing and I can name at least 20 teams that would love to have him including that team in your state to the North. Blomo will cost you a game; Joe doesn't.

In my book this is a non-topic. The media blow things out of proportion to create things they can talk about. And rival teams' fans just pounce on anything to make fun of the other team. When this came out in the summer, and I heard what he actually said, I rolled my eyes.

I worried about it all along, and now that I've seen it with the Packers and know that we will be seeing it more often in the remainder of our schedule, I really worry about it...........that is, an opponent capable of a vertical passing game. Unless anything changes, I see the potential for any quality vertical passing QB making their mediocre RB look like a pro bowler against us. We won't be able to keep stacking the box and not eventually pay for it big time.
