Ray Rice = game MVP w/2 TD's 145 AP Yards
Ed Reed = 2 INT's

Peyton Manning = more receptions to Ed Reed than Eric Decker

Experts make me laugh... I am no where near an expert and i picked 170 out of 259. This is better or as high as most people who consider themselves "Experts". On paper the Ravens look like we should loose this game. But, when you count in all the emotional factors and Peyton's playoffs factors I believe we win. We will shock all the "experts". This game isn't played on paper.

I'm not sure why all these "experts" are picking a high scoring game. Based on the weather and the fact that we held Peyton Manning to 200 yards passing with our practice squad, I'm picking a low scoring game. Ravens win 17 13.

Of Course everybody picking the Broncos. They been fooled by the Week 15 Score. But Ravens were depleted on D. Everybody back now. Ray retiring, enough inspiration to win, so he does not go out a loser against Peyton Manning. Ravens win it. I also think the Texans will beat the Pats, so we won't have a replay of last years AFC. Gonna be hard to pick who wins that one.

Ngata's injuries are weighing on him. Is he losing passion for the game? Funny how things change when you get wealthy.

I know there are still many pundits who don't think Flacco can do this, but his resume is more impressive than they realize.

First 5 playoff games- 57/120(47.5%), 660yds, 1 td, 6 int's

Last 5 playoff games- 89/150(59.3%), 1154yds, 9 td's, 2 int's (QB rating near 98)

He is a reason we are winning in the playoff and given time by his line he will help us win this weekend too.

In order to beat Manning the defence can't show its hand. We need to do what we did in 2000 wait to the last 3 seconds then make our move. He won't know what hit him. Go Ravens!

Ravens win 24-22, they get more red-zone chances than us, but come away with FGs only. I kinda like that nobody gives us a chance. We're gonna play fast, physical, and pissed off.

I'll send one message to our defensive front... if you can't get to him jump up hands up. deflect that ball... bull rushes up the middle cause manning loves to step in his throw. keep an eye out for them short passes... offensive line... ruff up there defensive line and how do you do that... run the ball straight at em with pierce. this one will be different cause our team is more focus then ever... we want to get to the superbowl more then they do... we will get there... THIS YEAR. one game at a time though. take out the legend. you can do it. its not going to be a blow out but we will get the W. GO RAVENS.

I still see our Ravens heading for a "reckoning" in Foxborough next Sunday!

Peyton throws two deadly picks to match his two TDs,... Ravens hold on for a 20 - 17 win!

Its really easy to pick the favored team to win in a a game like this. These so called "experts" jaws are gonna drop after this game. There is a special feeling about this years playoffs for our boys. Being 18 years old, growing up watch Ray play the game has really been special for me. He is the reason I play football, and he is my idol. The best Raven there EVER will be. We are going to send him out right. We go into Denver and come out big. 24-17 RAVEBS!

10 degrees, Peyton Manning feeling pain with every touch, Joe Flacco saying this is the kind of football weather I live for. Ray Lewis screaming across the line, "I'm a machine jerk", Manning saying the machine is the mike, Kruger lays Manning out and says I'm just getting started. Monster truck riding on 55's (Suggs) kick it into turbo. Ravens leave Denver as divisional champions, mile high feeling a mile low.

I have a feeling, that the Broncos will be too concerned with stopping Pierce and Rice and Caldwell will get all pass happy, catching the Broncos off-guard and allowing Flacco to carve Denver up. I predict, the greatest game Joe had in his career.

we win 24-13 straight and simple. We have Yanda back. Secondly Mckinne will do a better job at LT than oher. OHer back at RT where he 100X better. Then Osemele at lg will bring more mauling attitude with birk. O-line shuffling will be the reason why we win the super bowl. Then lets go on the defense side of the ball. We have Bernard Pollard returning and he will put moreno back in the locker room. We have Ray Lewis back, Ed Reed a little bit healthier. Also Jimmy smith has also recoverd a lot more after the surgery he was rush into that broncos game. But most of all we got Ellerbe back now thats where we get better. Lastly but importantly jim caldwell has his feet wet and now knows how to call plays we win 24-13.

[/quote]i don't think thats a scarf looked more to me like a collar of some sort .....34 degrees is not bad for football. I say Joe plays better then he did against the giants he is balling these last few games and caldwell know manning. I don't envision a blow out but we get the win

There's nothing really going for us tomorrow. We're playing in Denver against arguably one of the best QB's to ever play. Manning himself has cut us apart time and again in the past. The Broncos have defensive and offensive weapons. They're mostly healthy. All that said, they are probably the most complete team in the playoffs. Everyone give us a 1percent shot in pulling off an upset. BUT, this is why you play the game. Any given Sunday, in this case Saturday, anything can happen. One bad call, miscue, the wind shifting slightly, can change the outcome of the game. A one handed on the helmet catch can be the difference between beating a perfect team and winning a superbowl. If there is a team that thrives on situations like this, it is the Ravens. We've squandered chances in the past. We were in the Superbowl for half a second last year. We've been here. We've had our hearts broken and said our "what ifs". I don't see a more perfect scenario for the underdog except this one. Not just because of Ray's Last Ride. But we are due. The team is passionate more than ever. Passion and heart alone can very well defeat a near perfect QB. We are due to no longer be a victim, but to be a heart breaker. I no longer wish and hope for Ray's last ride to last longer. It is a must for me. Ray's last ride ends in New Orleans after we lift up the lombardi. Let's go Charm City. Lets shock the world.

With everything GOOD and BAD, more bad than good. Art dies, Torrey's brother death hours before the Patriots game,losing Webb for the season and Ray in the same game, Haloti playing hurt all season and the lose of Suggs in the off season. This TEAM and Fanbase has endured it all season long. I really feel something special in the air around this town. Haters will hate, so let em. Like I said on Monday, Manning sucks in the cold and the snow, I wished for 6 feet of snow and it coming Denver's way. There is something special around this TEAM.



ALL you need to know about is the WILL of this team, go back to the SD game 4th AND 29.

GO RAVENS!!!!!!!!!

I think Broncos better realize how much of a difference several players being in this game changes the outcome. Bernard Pollard will play lights out (literally) haha If Moreno thinks he is going to leap over Pollard he has another thing coming. For some reason I get a feeling Bernard Pollard is gonna have a big game and someone is going to get smacked hard. And thats just what one player brings to the table. Add in our two best linebackers being back in here? We have some new faces that the broncos line hasnt played against and that makes a huge difference. From experience, when you play against a team and you learn those players tendencies it makes preperation easier for the next time you play. We know all the broncos players tendencies cause they had all their players the first game. Now our players know what to expect which their players do not. Big advantage for us.

There are 3 seconds left! the score is Denver 16, Ravens 14. After a Von Miller sack on Joe Flacco, it's 4 and 17 from the Denver 48 yard line. Here comes the rookie kicker, Justin Tucker to attempt and NFL record 65 yard field goal that could win the game. The snap ... spot... the kick is in the air ... it's long enough.. it's good!! the kick is good!!! Baltimore wins on an NFL record 65 yard field goal by rookie Justin Tucker!!

You are spot on. The ball bounces funny come playoff time. Who [cares [about everyone's 1% chance anyway. These are all the same folks who said ~This team fired their offensive coordinator and it's probably going to be bad news for them. Well guess what, the first game was against the Broncos.

And all the [people] that are saying we have no chance don't bother to mention that, they don't bother to mention 5 missing starters, they don't MOST IMPORTANTLY, bother to mention that we now finally have our best offensive line in the game.

If at least one of those [people] bothered to bring up any of those 3 changes, then I might think they had a valid and unbiased viewpoint...but they aren't painting a complete picture. If we end up winning, they will all go back and do their homework and say - here are the changes that Baltimore made since the first matchup blah blah blah....they are all just talking heads

That would be awesome to see but I am not really wanting something so stressful to happen. Lol Of all nailbiters. A 65 yard field goal for the win were be the biggest. Haha but they say you can kick further in Denver and Tucker has already kicked a 65 yarder in practice here. I think you could go a few more yards back than 65. There was a kid in highschool in Washington that kicked a 72 yarder. I def think Tucker could kick from that distance.

"Ravens win the divisional round by one point" Flacco steps up to the podium Looks around at all the reporters says "I told you so " Biscotti get your check book out I'm winning the superbowl. Then he does the Squirrel dance and walks off ....ok so maybe the dance is a tad over the top .
