    You know what? Not only am I confident we'll cover, but I'm going to say it first. I expect a win outright. I think we get it done Saturday. 27-24. Bring 'em on!!

    I don't know how confident I feel about winning, but I'm sure we give them a MUCH better fight than last time.

    I agree. Manning has always had the Ravens' number but it was Caldwells first game calling plays and the defense essentially gave up after Joe threw the pick-6 before the half. The game was competitive up until Joe's pick-6.

    I have no problem being underdogs.

    Every teams would be an underdog going to Denver right now.

    I'm in. We're bringing a different defense, and Caldwell now has a couple games under his belt. We don't turn the ball over, I think we can get into a shootout with them.

    What I don't understand is how we get the Saturday game, and Houston/NE gets the Sunday game? Why do they get the extra day and we lose a day?

    Plus the fact that Ray Lewis didn't play that first game. I think we have a much better showing on offense. Shock the world, baby!!

    Seems right to me. The Broncos are the most balanced team in the NFL right now and they are hot winning their last 11. They have a really ood home field advantage with that crowd and the altitude.

    The one thing the Ravens may have in their favor is the fact that the Broncos may come out with a little less momentum due to the week off.

    Hmmm...I think if McKinnie can have a "decent" game against Miller, we might have a chancer. Give Oherrated help against Dumverville because he'll NEED it.

    I don't understand this, either. Is there some type of rotation they use for the #1 and #2 seeds? Last year, the Ravens as a #2 seed, played on Sunday IIRC. So maybe that's what it is.

    Didn't see enough from them today to predict a win next week against a tough team and a QB we haven't beaten in a decade. I'm not even ready to say they'll cover. They just don't do well against Manning. Suppose we'll see though.

    We need to stay out of 3rd and longs or it will be a long game for Joe & the O.
    Likewise if we fall behind.

    Do not want that pass rush pinning its ears back and going straight after Joe all game.

    9 is a lot, I would have guessed 7 based on our defensive effort today. I would guess that's where the line end up at kickoff next weekend. Manning's so hard to defend for 60 minutes. We saw it a few weeks ago: he'll hit the comeback routes 8 times before catching you on a double move for a big play. The spotlight is on Ed Reed this week to keep those big throws from being completed and the pass rush to keep Manning off balance and hurried. I think we can expect 20 points from the offense at the end of the day, and holding Denver below that will be a stiff test.
    Long days and pleasant nights.

    Pretty much everyone picked the Ravens to win at home against the Colts. Those same people are going to pick the Ravens to lose against the Broncos on the road. If the Ravens want to make a statement this is their chance. Beat the Broncos and the perception of this team will completely change.

    I agree with this 100%. The most important thing when facing a Peyton Manning led team is to get out to an early lead. The last thing you want is to be down 10 to #18 with Von Miller and Dumervill abusing Michael Oher.

    If we can find a way to win at Denver, there isn't a single team out there that we can't beat.
