Packers 28, Ravens 24
The Packers may be playing without linebacker Clay Matthews but they will have enough to keep the Ravens offense in check.
Packers 28, Ravens 21
The Ravens have a strong pass rush, but not strong enough to stop QB Aaron Rodgers from taking advantage of a secondary that has given up a lot of big plays this season.
Ravens 24, Packers 23
This is the biggest test for the defense since the opener against the Broncos and the Ravens will rise to it. They are a different team at home and they're due for an artistically pleasing performance by Joe Flacco and the offense.
Packers 30, Ravens 20
Things did not go well the last time they played an elite quarterback with three talented wide-outs. It won't be a blowout like the Broncos game, but it will be a challenge for the Ravens to keep pace.
Ravens 30, Packers 27
In a bit of an upset, Joe Flacco wins the quarterback duel over Aaron Rodgers despite the Packers' receiving trio pushing Ravens to the brink. Green Bay's defense loses its edge and intensity without dangerous pass rusher Clay Matthews.
Packers 31, Ravens 27
The Ravens have improved defensively since getting torched by the Denver Broncos in Week 1 but Aaron Rodgers' quick release and his arsenal of weapons will be too much in a shootout at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Ravens will not be so lucky as to have as many dropped passes by opposing receivers in this one. Still, the Ravens defense is evolving, and the pass rush seems to be getting in stride. The Ravens’ regular season mark at M&T Bank Stadium is 87-33 -- under Harbaugh it’s 33-7, which is a sick winning percentage of 82.5.
