10 reasons it will be different this season
1. We beat them this season and have the confidence going in!
2. TUCKER
3. McKINNIE he looks awesome and KO at G is a nasty combination
4. Jacoby Jones...he is not TJ or LEE EVANS... he is the x factor
5. They dont have GRONK
6. We have the momentum
7. Dan Peas knows that PATS
8. Caldwell... Like his game calling so far
9. Harbaugh continues to show growth as a coach
10. RAY!

The defense will keep Brady moving out of the pocket which he does not do well at all. Passes will be defended well and we will take advantage of miscues. Suggs has his legs back finally and Kruger is a beast at getting pass rush. Ravens will win this in big fashion.

How much of Wilfork is a factor to our o line, do we have issues with him pushing our boys around? I don't recall seeing that in week 3

Either we get redemption by beating them, or we can actually lose in a respectable fashion this year. No more soul-crushing shoulda-woulda-coulda defeats this year, guys!

I feel like we can't lose. I feel like this is a 60 minute special waiting to happen. I certainly hope the Ravens play their hearts out and win just as they did against Denver but I don't think we are gonna lose. I feel too cocky and confident but my gut is speaking to me.

Ngata is this week's Boldin.

No doubt - these are 2 different teams, as evidenced by the man who replaced Goat #1 (Evans) caught a franchise epic 70 yard TD pass and the man who replaced Goat #2 (Cundiff) kicked the game winning 47 yard FG.

NE is different too ... and unfortunately probably an improved team over the one we faced last year and even the one we faced earlier this season.

I don't know if I'm going to be able to take a week of this.

The Pats wanted the Ravens too. They know the ravens are a tired beat down bunch that can't give them a struggle......................but the RAY-vens will show up anyway and WE know that if Vegas says it takes 9 1/2 pts to get the "in the know" crowd to bet on Baltimore how can it go wrong? Ask Peyton and Fox: 70 yards? Jones? Flacco? OT interception from the aged warriors? They got US right where Ngata&T-sizzle want the RAY-vens,still in it to WIN IT!!

The Tampa 2 Dean Pees defense with Ray-Ray & Ed making the other team score on short passes&runs in freont of them while Joe bombs away has worked for 6 quarters. Please do not forget that every time they score WE get Joe "elite" back on the field against a Pat defense that is over rated. Our new O-line roster stopped the best passing D in the league from beating up Joe and Rice ran over them. First 300 yard passer against them this year oops did Rice get a hundred on the ground? Offense,offense,offense with our RAY-vens commiting no turnovers and WE shock the world again. Pats O-line cannot contain Kruger,McPhee&Suggs or Ngata without holding. If refs call the holds WE dominate them.

For any old timers out there, these two games have been extra sweet! First win eliminates an Irsay (moved our beloved Baltimore Colts) and the second win eliminates an Elway (refused to be drafted by the Baltimore Colts, probably causing Irsay to move the team). The only other win that would be as sweet would be for Mr. Art Modell to be enshrined in Canton (for bringing the just as beloved Ravens to Baltimore)!

@balfan23 - The Ravens are a better team now than the one the Pats faced earlier this year as well.

I know - I said that when I said look at our replacements for Evans and Cundiff ... Jones and Tucker. Perhaps you didn't understand that to indicate an improvement.

While Graham has been special, I'm not making him an "improvement" player. He's been a godsend yes, but is only serving to minimize the sting of losing Webb.

Another place where I think we've improved - is Pierce > Ricky. And that difference could be big this week, as our run game will really need to be clicking this weekend. I'm just hoping he's healthy enough to make that impact.

Make sure our confidence doesn't turn to cockiness because that's when games our lost. We can do this, just don't turn the ball over and let Rice do his thing.

I wonder if any other city has such a sad sack populace that worries about its players being too confident...

Those people saying Graham is short term are wrong ,this guy will be starting next year with Webb i don't see Cary williams coming back because of Cap space ,dont get me wrong hes getting better,but he still does not watch the ball consistent enough.

DarkKnight52, I agree with you, Graham will be back. He's done a great job picking it up for Webb. I hope your wrong about Williams, He has really stepped up since beginning of the season. I would rather loose Smith than Williams. The corners, like the rest of the D has brought there A games to the plaoffs.
