    Re: A Ravens versus Jets prediction thread (Wow!)

    The Ravens have no business losing to this team. Not at home.

    There's really no one on their offense that scares you. We've lost to the Bills and Browns but at least those teams have some playmakers. Stephen Hill, I heard, is in the dog house. Is Santonio Holmes healthy? Who else is left? David Nelson? Chris Ivory is a good running back but he's not a game changer.

    Their run defense is really good but the secondary isn't great. We should be able to run the sugar huddle, quick passing attack with some shotgun runs and draws mixed in. We play that style well at home. That should be enough to get us 20-23 points or so, which should be enough to win.

    Ravens win 23-10. If we lose this one I'll have no more words.

    Ravens 21 - Jets 17...since our offense can't score more than 14, our "D" gets a TD in this one... Bc

    Must ...avoid ...turnovers...

    If Joe & crew can keep from turning it over (or at least commit fewer turnovers than NY) I think the Ravens find a way to come out on top at home.

    16-13 Ravens on a last second FG.

    Even though they win fans will feel deflated as if the Ravens lost.

    This team is missing something and its more than talent or even leadership.

    I'd say Jets win by three. Their d is so damn good and they really are a Jekyll and Hyde team.

    Nothing like a little bit of bulletin board material for the OL.

    The Ravens have played much better at M&T than on the road, and I just can't see Geno Smith beating them. It won't be pretty and it will probably be difficult to put points on the board, but I think they pull this one out.

    Ravens are 23rd in the NFL in giveaway/takeaway net at -5. The Jests? Dead last at -14...tied (with Arizona) for 4-5 worst in giveaways at 21 (16 picks, 5 fumbles lost) and tied (with the Bolts) for dead last in takeaways with 7 (5 picks, 2 fumbles recovered).

    A few other facts:
    • 16 of the Jets' 21 turnovers were committed in their 5 losses, never less than 2 per loss;
    • They are a net -15 in those losses, an average of -3 per game;
    • 6 of the Jets' 7 takeaways came in their 5 wins;
    • They are a net +1 in those 5 victories;
    • The Jets are 1-5 when turning the ball over more than the opponent;
    • They are 4-0 when turnovers are even or in their favor.

    Looking at very coarse game stats (here) nothing else jumps out as a predictor of the Rexes' performance like turnovers.

    Conversely, the Ravens are 2-3 when turnovers are even or in their favor and also 2-3 when they lose the turnover battle; they are net -3 in their losses and net -2 in their wins. None of the coarse game stats (here) seem to correlate with win/lose. (Been that kind of a year, ain't it?)

    So, yeah--if the Ravens don't manage to come out on the plus side of the turnovers, it bids fair to be a lonnnnng afternoon.

    I think we win, if for no other reason than we're at home against a rookie Qb. 20-9, good guys.

    I like your perception. Earlier in the season, the defense kept our opponents out of the endzone for at least 10 straight quarters. Ever since they left Denver, I have had this notion about surrendering 299 points for the season (wishful thinking perhaps). I have never liked it when we gave up 300+ points in a season. Ironically, last season the total was 344 points but, of course, key defensive starters were out until near the end. Yet, that was more than TWICE the total surrendered in 2000.
