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.

Packers didn't contain Watt. He had 6 tackles and two sacks, was a beast in the run game and lots of pressures....he can't do everything.

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.

yeah, I agree. Lord forbid Watt going down...that would destroy this defense unlike losing Mario.

Scared to see what this D will look like Cushing-less against Ray Rice.

But it should be a great game. I expect, no....I DEMAND a better performance.

Yes, only two more late night games. And if those two late night games end up being as horrible as the last one, I'll do the same thing I did last night. Mute the sound and fall asleep.

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.

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.

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.

I'd like to feel confident, but Baltimore got pushed around & still won the game. They didn't deserve to win the playoff game last year, either. We need to finish them off, but I have a feeling they'll just hang around

name 1 QB who says in an interview "Ya know Mike and Mike, I really suck and I can't believe people buy my jersey! LOL Laughs on them because I am horrible and will cost you points in fantasy every week! But you'll hang onto me and coaches will play me because I'll have a game where I play lights out, then stink it up"

jacoby's TD return was the Game winner as far as I am concerned...
