STORYLINE: “We’ve got one more game to get!”

 

So says Ravens All-Star LB TERRELL SUGGS. Baltimore could join Atlanta (MIKE SMITH/QB MATT RYAN) as the teams to make the 2008 playoffs with rookie head coaches and rookie quarterbacks – the Ravens’ JOHN HARBAUGH and QB JOE FLACCO.

 

With a win or other scenarios, Baltimore clinches a playoff spot. They can be in the postseason even before they take the field if New England loses to Buffalo in their 1:00 PM game. But that won’t stop the Ravens from going full bore, as they always do. No less an authority than LB RAY LEWIS attests to that. “The only thing we can think about is a 60-minute game against Jacksonville,” says the All-Star. “When we finish that one, then we can think about the playoffs.”

I do not think we will dominate this game, but I think we will win it handedly in the fashion of the Skins game. The Jags are going to come to play, but the Ravens have not played down to the level of our competition all season. We are 10-5 for a reason, and are clearly more talented and better coached than the Jags. It will not be an easy win, but I believe we will come out on top with some good momentum going into the playoffs.

I'm actually a little worried about this game, I'm hoping the bills do us a favor and beat the pats. I know were the better team, but worried that garrard will scramble and hit some big throws downfield.

 

Also a little worried about flacco and the playcalling, it's usually really poor and conservative. Lets hope we break this trend.

 

 

Ravens 20-16

Having Rice back would be big to not only give McClain a rest but also to open up the field a little more. Rice is a great 3rd down back and recieving option for Flacco and that has definitely been missing from our game with him out lately. We need to be healthy this week, hopefully Mason plays.
