Anything can happen in one game, but you're kind of being a nervous fan here. Baltimore lost EIGHT FRIGGIN STARTERS since last season, and for reasons never quite explained, they got rid of Anquan Boldin who was the key to their entire playoff offense. And from what I gather, they didn't ADD anyone that brings a different dimension to their team like we did.
So, sure, its possible Baltimore might win, it's possible Denver might blow them out, it's possible we might lose to the Raiders twice. Football seasons are small sample sizes. But if you look at what both teams lost and gained in the offseason, I'm not sure how you think Baltimore is somehow in better shape than we are.
