Baltimore Sun staff and WJZ's Mark Viviano Ravens vs. Falcons picks

Kevin Cowherd

Ravens 24, Falcons 21: Ravens coaches overcome short week of preparation by buying 16 cases of Red Bull at Sam's Club.

Jamison Hensley Falcons 21-10: The power running of Michael Turner and the home dominance of Matt Ryan (he's 17-1 at the Georgia Dome) are too much for the Ravens to overcome.

Edward Lee Falcons 23, Ravens 20: The Ravens should remain competitive for a majority of the game, but a physical win against the Miami Dolphins and a short week of recovery will be enough for the host Falcons to escape with a narrow decision.

Ken Murray Falcons 28, Ravens 24: Home field for a Thursday game is huge.

Peter Schmuck Falcons 23, Ravens 20: The short turnaround and the travel day is going to be a little too much against Matt Ryan and a quality Falcons team.

Mike Preston Ravens 17, Falcons 14: Even on a short week, the Ravens are too physical and will pound the Falcons, especially on the offensive side of the ball.

WJZ's Mark Viviano Ravens 26, Falcons 23: Joe Cool vs. Matty Ice. Cool comes out on top.
