I pointed out to them that the game was so close that CBS switched game in 3 rd quarter.

Maybe they do reverse mojo like the Mane does.

I've seen some mentioning how they frustrated Manning, holding the Broncos to 3 and outs on three of our first 4 series, coupled with a season low 187 passing yards.

Oddly, they neglect to mention that the Ravens failed to get a first down through their first five possessions, nor how the Broncos put together an almost 10 minute drive to ice the game.

We lost by 10, not sure that gets classified as a blow out, especially on the road against NE. The Ravens were at home. And I was not one of those who thought we were a fumble away from winning in NE. But you can put me down for believing that we had the Patriots sweating bullets in the 4th quarter until that fumble. I don't think the Broncos were quite sweating bullets in that Ravens game.

In the end, I think they are a little better on defense now that they got some players back but on the offense I don't see them being really any better then they were before, especially on the road in Denver. Our defense is well rested, and should really put a ton of pressure on their offense.

I bet this game will be super close...the NE game will likely be a blow out. Not sure who that favors for the AFC championship.

The ratbirds are cocky because with the exception of us beating them down like mules a few weeks ago, they've had our number far too long. They are very cocky, like steeluh fans; that's how so many of them believe they were one missed foot in bounds from hammering us (even though it was 31-3 and cbs changed the game).

This is such a myth. The Broncos are 5-6 all time against the Ravens. They are 3-1 at home against the Ravens. The Ravens haven't won here since 2001.

They don't own crap.

Baltimore is better than Houston IMO...and Schaub and Flacco are the same guy basically. Baltimore is a way more physical D IMO.

Yeah Houston's 7th ranked defense to Baltimore's 17th? Or if you're talking pure physicality, how about how the Texans have the 7th rushing defense and Baltimore has the 20th? Houston is 5th in sacks and Baltimore is 15th.

So how, exactly, are they "way more physical" than the Texans? Unless you meant what Olivian Newton John was referring too...

Houston has better talent than Baltimore on D, Baltimore has nobody at pass rush who can even begin to match JJ Watt and they have nobody at CB who is in the same league as Joseph - those are the two most important positions on defense.

Stats are just that, I am using my naked eye test and so should you. Houston played who Jax and Tenn 2x each? Their "physical" D got pounded by NE. The Ravens have been hurt most of the year but now are healthy and they are borderline dirty? IDK...Rice, Reed, Pollard, Ngata...I'd rather face Watt and a bunch of no names who struggled with Cinci.

Again just use the naked eye test. Stats are misleading I think?

I just think Balt is a dirtier team with Reed and Pollard back there. Am I wrong? Maybe? Sorry.

The Baltimore D was tough and nasty, 3 or 4 years ago. I think age has caught up with them, a bit. The additions include Bernard Pollard. He was not really that scary, in Kansas City...

I think you are confusing "physical" with "wears black".

Some stats can be misleading. An entire season of work is not. The Texans played some good offenses - some of the best in the league, this year and put up impressive numbers.

The Ravens also played some good teams and did not put up good numbers. When someone says a team is phyical, I assume they mean hard-hitting, solid tackling, run-stopping team. The Ravens are many things, but that isn't one of them.

Exactly people just assume because of the past history since 2000 or so that the Ravens D is as good as it ever has been. They are pretty bad honestly.

The 18th ranked offense in the NFL put up 400+ yards of offense on them in their house.
