People think the Ravens have nothing to play for but i disagree. As a playoff team the last 4 years, the Ravens have won the season finale each year and 3 of those season finale wins were followed by Wild Card victories. I think Harbs will use that as reason to play to win.

Also the Ravens are a pretty young team and I don't think they're able to flip that switch like we've seen from past teams. I think Harbs will prepare these guy to go out and win Sunday. Harbs doesn't like pulling starters in a blowout, so i don't expect him to do it for a full game. Much like they did in the last 2 games, i think the D will start strong and if the offense starts fast, the Ravens could put up 17-24 first half points.

If that happens you could see backups from both teams playing in the second half. As much as both coaches say they are playing to win, if the game starts getting ugly early, I think their backups will play. I think Joe has another performance likewise he did in week one,and he'll be pulled in the 4th.

Here's hoping Harbaugh doesn't put any starters in danger in this useless game so close to the playoffs! The last thing the defense needs is another injury.

Front row, so we need to get little Ray involved. We'll see...

That would be nice to see, but I hope the Ravens lose once subs get put in.

If both we and the Texans win in the early games tomorrow, I'm almost certain the Pats will try their best to gift the game to the Dolphins. Would be a very Belichick thing to do.

Why lose? I just think the 4th seed puts us in better position. If we win and Houston wins I wouldnt put it past Belichick to intentionally lose...hes done it before.

Unlike most, i'd love to get the 3 seed. Obviously the Colts and Texans is the easier path to the AFC Championship Game. But I actually think both the Texans and Broncos are headed for 1 and Done exits. The Ravens and Pats will play in the AFCCG gain and if the Ravens are the 3 seed, that game is at the Bank. Can't see us losing that game.

It's the harder road, but like Ray says, being a champion is not easy, it's hard work.

Well, I dont really care about beating the harder teams. Having to take out Houston then NE/Den is easier than Den and then NE. Path of least resistance please and thank you. Also Indy is a much easier out than Cinci IMO.

This team, when it's hot, has shown it can beat anybody no matter the circumstances. With that in mind, I wouldn't be upset if we ended up playing Cincy and Denver but to me, the much easier path is that of Indy and Houston. Cincy's defensive line scares the living out of me and I don't think we match up well against Manning and that Denver defense. Hosting the AFCCG against the Patriots would be dope but the trip all the way there would be a much harder one, in my opinion.

Oh no doubt, it's not about proven you're the best by beating the tougher team. You win at all cost. The Colts and Texans would be the easier road and by all means sign me up haha.

I just don't think the road of the Bengals and Broncos would be as hard as people think. Tough but not impossible. I saw some encouraging things against the Broncos that i feel like a healthier defense and a offense more familiar with what Caldwell wants to do, would take advantage. Thats all

That's the thing, i actually think we match up very well against Manning and that Defense. I know everyone will look to the final score, but rewatching that game, i feel the Ravens got exactly what they wanted and should have been able to attack that undersized defense. However the players just didn't execute well enough.

Also Pees had a great plan that kept Peyton off balance for most of the game. I strongly feel Ray, BP, Ellerbe and a healthy Suggs and would have had a greater impact on Defense.

Again, it'll be tough, especially in their place. But I think those guys have been coasting for a while and haven't really been tested. I think they are primed for a early exit. Jmo

Belichick is not going to throw the Dolphins game, especially not at Foxboro. He'll want to have home-field advantage for as long as possible in the playoffs. Not to mention, they could probably beat the 'Phins with just their backups anyway.
