Early thoughts or words of wisdom from any of you soothsayers out there ? This looks to be a helluva lot closer game than most pundits are calling.

We should be able to beat them as long as the team is focused on winning each game and not the playoffs. They also have to make sure to not look ahead to the Chargers game.

 

The possibility still exists that we lose the next three or two out of three. 

 

The Browns are still viable as winners of the division. Can you believe it?

Of course, any plan to solidify the passing game depends largely on how much Jackson improves as a passer in his second pro season. While he made some plays with his arm as a rookie, he wasn’t as consistently accurate as anyone wanted. He acknowledged to reporters earlier this month that he knew his mechanics needed work.

Jackson said he has been working on those mechanics and other aspects of his passing since February.

This should be a win.  Having a feeling it will be the last one of the season.

Curious how the the locker room is taking Joe's benching.  Yanda is real tight with him.

There's no gimmes in the NFL. The Ravens will have to earn a win.

 

Right now it's all about protecting the football and not having drive killing penalties.

Then again....Winston may become Judon's pinata.  :fishin:

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

Fantasy...

 

 

start em
Lamar Jackson vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jackson has averaged 84 rushing yards and over 18 fantasy points per game as the starting quarterback in Baltimore, and this week's matchup against the Buccaneers bodes well for his chances of producing a nice stat line. Their defense has allowed an average of almost 27 fantasy points per game quarterbacks on the road.

Sit em....Sit of the Week - Jameis Winston vs. Baltimore Ravens

Winston has scored at least 19-plus fantasy points in all but one of his six starts on the season, so it might be tough to bench him. Just keep in mind that a matchup in Baltimore is brutal. Quarterbacks have put up a meager 76.5 passer rating and just seven touchdown passes when facing the Ravens on their home field. He's a fade for me...http://www.nfl.com/f...15-quarterbacks

It should be a slobber knocker. After Sundays heartbreaking OT loss, wouldnt be surprised by a very flat performance. Lets see how the team responds and gets off the mat. I could see a very close game and an outcome going either way.

Willie Snead is a boss.  He is doing everything out there on offense -  catching and blocking.

He's today's Ravens MVP.

And the defense. That was the #2 offense in the NFL that they held to 241 yards.

 

They may have a chance against the Chargers. slim one, yet they have a chance.
