Back to football for a weekend.
It’s Prediction Friday, so dust off your crystal balls.
Or just go with the opposite of what I say. Although, like just about everyone else, I did correctly predict Monday’s Ravens’ win in Cleveland.
This one, though, is going to be a little tougher for the Ravens (Who says I am not a football expert? How about that for inside analysis?).
Honestly, I don’t see the Colts blowing out the Ravens as some prognosticators have hinted. I think the Ravens will be down early, make a solid comeback, maybe make it 20-17, and then, ultimately, lose on a fourth-quarter drive by Peyton Manning.
I just don’t see the Ravens’ D hanging with Manning for four quarters.
My call: Colts 27, Ravens 17. Manning is the game’s hero, throwing three TDs, two to Reggie Wayne.
Sorry, doesn’t make me feel good either. I’m a native Baltimoron, remember. Predicting the Indianapolis team, whatever they are called, to win in Charm City will always be painful.
But it’s happened before, and I assume it will happen again.
