From an article last week....

Baltimore ruled out seven starters for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts: wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle), offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley (knee), center Tyler Linderbaum (ankle), running back Justice Hill (foot), cornerback Marlon Humphrey (foot), safety Marcus Williams (pectoral) and outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (ankle).

If I'm not mistaken, RB Gus Edwards and OLB David Ojabo left the game last Sunday as well. This doesn't even include the guys they've already placed on IR like JK Dobbins. It will be interesting to see the injury reports starting today through Saturday indicating who might be playing for the Ravens this Sunday.

They are banged up!

I had the feeling that they were resting some of those guys for this game (OBJ, Stanley, Hill, Oweh) ... maybe a few others.

They'll have close to a full roster I'd bet

They are hurting.

This is a home game. A division game with a lot on the line.

Start with our defense. We are a problem for any NFL team on defense. This defense is dead serious.

Schwartz has waved the magic wand. Mr. Burns has released the hounds.

When a team can do what we are doing on defense. Everything changes. You keep getting three and outs. You put the offense back on the field. Possessions on offense helps them figure out on the fly how to attack. Opposing defenses come in with a plan. It is revealed on each possession.
The offense can adjust and use alternate ways to attack.

The type of defense we are playing demoralizes teams. The body language of the offenses in the first three games showed chaos. You could read
the frustration of Burrow, Pickett, and Tannehill. You could see it in the faces of the coaches. The Bengals and Titans basically pleaded for the mercy rule.

Lamar is a different cat as far as mobility. But he also can be frustrated. All game pressure and pick or two. Lamar will become unraveled.

We are beginning to hit that groove. When you can be consistent. You can stack wins.

The amazing part is, our defense has been absolutely dominant and aren't really creating turnovers. If they can start turning pressures and sacks into interceptions and fumbles, look out.

Lamar is prone to both types of turnovers. Hopefully we can knock the ball out or step in front of a few passes.

I think so too.... imagine if we were able to secure the 1-2 TO's that you want each game

Our defense has been amazing to watch thus far, but new coordinator vs Lamar... and unless my Google-Fu is failing me, Jim Schwartz has never beaten the Ravens with Lamar. Not when he was with the Titans, nor with the Eagles.

So, HOPEFULLY, he's learned a few things from film of our roster beating them over the past few years and isn't going to just get us gashed by creating running lanes for Lamar to scamper through.


Browns is the Browns

... there goes Joe Thomas, the best there ever was in this game.

I'm surprised by the line too. I figured it would move down towards a pick'em by game time

Lots of Browns fans putting out money, I'd guess, they've got to try to entice more money on the other side.

So much will depend on the health of those Ravens in question. They have good players on the fence. Both teams full strength? heck of a matchup

Feels like a trap game, just like the Steelers.

Every division game is a trap game- for both teams.

he's been taking too many hits ... bound to happen.

DTR has to be smart with the ball now

In season, reporters don't see much of actual practice.

IF Watson can’t or won’t go… minus last weeks results, many were calling for DTR. May see he’s more than enough to move us downfield. Don’t know, but it will sure make this game interesting if it happens. Personally, I think Watson will play unless he’s dying.

Lots of Ravens already declared out with the potential for more.
