He was always a Raven, it just took him 13 seasons to come home. :ph34r:

Very very winnable game IMO. I think we take care of business here and get a W. Need a whole lot of Kenny Young/Levine with McCaffrey in the backfield.

no mention of DJ Moore, he sure has had a rough rookie season thus far.

i can only imagine the outburst in here if he'd become a Raven and performed like that.

b2t. can't see the Panthers win this. if 2 of the 3 CBs listed under DNP are able to start i don't see anybody but Olsen able to help out Cam. speaking of whom, Olsen will probably go off for +100yds and a score but it should be a 2-score win for the Ravens. something like 28-17. just make sure to not put #99 on Olsen.

This is going to be the game where our offense falls apart completely thanks to Luke Kuechly, and I can see the Panthers' speedy WR's giving Jimmy and Brandon Carr nightmares, along with McCaffrey laughing as Mosley tries to keep up.

I think we take this, our defense matches up well with Cams strengths. He’s not going to be as accurate as Brees nor as quick to read our defense. I think we can disguise things and force him into turnovers.

The biggest key IMO will be to limit the damage we see from McCaffrey and Olson. We have to generate quick pressure on Cam but manage potential screens so that he doesn’t have time to find the deep patterns. I like this matchup defensively.

Offensively, I’m going to pencil Flacco in for an interception to Kuechly off a tipped pass. I also see Alex Collins fumbling a ball away.

That all said, I think our defense weathers the storm just enough so that we get good field position enough drives for Tucker to pile on some points and we win this game largely off of his efforts. I’m projecting three 50 yard makes for Tucker and one from from about 40. I also think we see LJ8 throw his first passing touchdown to Hayden Hurst off a RPO where Hurst releases out (similar to the play the Saints scored on us with).

I project we win this game: 19-13.

The Philly defense, which has been horrible all season, held them scoreless for 3 quarters last week.  

I give our defense a very good chance of holding them to a score they shouldn't be able to win with

I think we sack cam 5+ times. His release is looking really slow and like he really has to physically exert himself to get the ball down the field.

Well, if you have Alex Collins in your fantasy lineup now's the time to bench him.

Was gonna keep him benched anyways but EESH this is rough. Need Bozeman to be able to go.

This is fairly easy, win and we are not forced to win against the Steelers. Lose and we have put ourselves in a hole we have to dig us out of in a tough second half of the season.

Offense has to get going, because if we keep it close, we allow Cam Newton to go superman in the final minutes to secure the win as he has done a couple of times already.

Special teams is allowed to show up, because they have not played up to standard.

If it wasn't for the bad performance against the Browns, offense wouldn't have to "prove" anything, as it overall has performed well enough considering the patchwork it still is. The running game has to get going, and I am getting tired of seeing basically every team in the league not named Ravens getting long runs and scores from their running game.
