Few predict Ravens upset. Manning vs. … Bynes? Realistic for Lewis to play? Ngata not fined.

If Ngata gets fined for that hit they should just fine every football player who hurts someones feelings

It's so rude to tackle people, just hug them until they decide to stop fighting!

If we can beat the Broncos on Sunday with our backup players, I will be very impressed because they are on a serious roll and Peyton is playing just as well as before his neck surgery. Go Ravens!

A win this week is unlikely but that is when a team sometimes rises up through adversity and wins defying the odds makers and predictions, you remember like the heart of a champion Steelers did for Batch when Big Ben was out. T-Sizzle-Lewis out-Reed hurt the scenario is set let's see what happens. Ravens 23 Broncos 17. in a OT thriller.

It would appear that many have lost faith in the Ravens, I haven't. I still believe in them...always have, always will.

GO RAVENS!

Denver has won eight games in a row. they are not easy to beat but they will be beaten and the main reason is that 12th man,I have said it be fore and I will say it again our D. is beat up but they will play hard our offense will win the game for us. two score win would mack my day win by 10 or 14 that will impress me and a whole lot of you. Go Ravens.

A win seems unlikely, just the way PIT and WAS wins seemed unlikely.
DEN is on a win streak, BAL has lost 2 in a row. Streaks always turn at some point.
Do you really think the Ravens will lose 3 in a row? I actually think the odds are in our favor.

I think this is going to be our statement game. We will prove to everyone that we can hang with the best of the NFL, including the Pats and Texans. Look out for Ed Reed because he's going to make the game changing plays.

I will be in attendance at the game on Sunday, so I fully expect a win, knowing that its seriously crunch time for everyone on the team. Let's beat Peyton Manning here at home and roll out.

Just don't knock out Manning! We can beat him, but we are likely to lose to his back-up!

This game poses a real dilemma. After having lost 2 in a row, we are very eager to get on a winning track. However, winning with BA and Bynes in the middle is simply a long shot. There is a real desire to get Lewis, Suggs and Ellerbe on the field for this game, so we can feel as if we are righting the ship.

However, we have to realize that we are going to the playoffs - that's a virtual guarantee. Putting these guys on the field before they are ready just to win this game - at the risk of losing them for the post-season when we REALLY need them, must be resisted.

I am dying to see us win - dying to see us defeat the great Peyton ... dying to shut these analysts up who are claiming we're now exposed as a mediocre team ... but these guys cannot take the field if they are not ready. We just have to realize that, if they don't, we probably don't win. We have to be mentally prepared for that outcome and not let ourselves believe the sky is falling. We just need to understand that, for us to go anywhere in the post-season, we need our defense to get healthy.

"Joe Flacco acknowledges that he has to stop fumbling."

Why even post that? It's like stating: "Joe Flacco acknowledges that breathing air and drinking water are necessary for survival."

The closer we get to this game the more I wish we played the Broncos in week 2 and play Philadelphia this Sunday. Our defense is banged up-- and that is an understatement, and the offense needs somewhat of a test-run game with Caldwell before we can say we've worked the kinks out. All that being said, I think the onus is on Joe Flacco, Ray Rice, Anquan Boldin, Vonta Leach, Torrey Smith, Dennis Pitta... (what a loaded offense) to carry this team especially this week and the next. These guys should make a personal vow to catch every "catchable" ball thrown their way. Forget about YAC until you have secured the ball; do not, I mean do not, fumble the ball or allow a strip. When there is a defender around you, hold that ball high and tight and when in doubt use two hands. Flacco, I'm not too concerned about interceptions (except those where there is no receiver in the zip code where the ball was thrown), give your playmakers chances to make plays on the ball; rip it, let it go just as the guy is about to break. You need to start throwing guys open rather than waiting for them to get open... and then throwing the ball.

There may be other things we may need to pull this one out like a sprinkle of luck, but if the offense balls out we will win this ball game. It is that simple... or is it?

If we can not beat playoff tems at home.... it dont make our chances in the playoffs (possibly on the road look good) but it really is less about winning this game and more about how we play!

I want to win this as bad as anyone but if we play great on both sides of the ball and ST... that means we may find some consistency at the right time of the year!

A blow out loss would be a bad sign... but anything else just means we can compete with anyone... time to peak!
