Ravens fan of the week, Brandon Sacks

Brandon Sacks, 19, Towson University sophomore

Your favorite all-time Ravens moment? Watching Ray Lewis go out on top. What would be a better way to end the career of arguably the best linebacker to ever play the game than with his second ring?

What does it mean to you to be a Ravens fan? Being a Ravens fan is a lifestyle. As rough as a week may be, I always know that for no less than 20 weeks out of the year (and hopefully more), I can stop everything that I'm doing, throw on my jersey, and go insane as I root for the team I love.

If you could invite three Ravens to dinner, who would they be? Jacoby Jones, Vonta Leach and Terell Suggs.

Your favorite Ravens player? Without a doubt, Joe Flacco. Hate him all you want, but five playoff appearances in five years in the league, along with 11 touchdowns to 0 interceptions shows his true greatness.

Your predicition for Sunday's game? Ravens 24, Texans 20. I think Ed Reed will be making his season debut back at M&T Bank Stadium, where he knows it's the day his former teammate Ray Lewis goes into the Ring of Honor. Reed is going to have a pick that will lead to a score, but I think that Flacco will come out on top in the end.

If you could be one Ravens for a day, who would it be? Torrey Smith. If he is strong enough to play a major game less than 24 hours after the death of his brother, then I would love to be able to have his courage for a day.

Fill in the blank. I am a Ravens fan because _______ I am sensible.
