I hope that our players have enough pride to go out and put this game away early. But Harbaugh is a tough opponent.
I don't know about that. The bolded part. They may be getting better stats, but this early into the season, I don't know if you can say that to be true. Different situations, different circumstances. Over the course of the season... or at least once we can cross the half way mark, we can say who's playiing better than who, but right now I don't believe the stats are reflective of the quality of individual play.
Ravens more talented? They're starting three guys we did not want.
