Zrebiec: Six weeks ago, I saw a nine- or 10-win team, but that's before most of the injuries, suspensions and retirements hit. The best NFL teams are able to withstand injuries, but no team is built to be able to seamlessly replace the number of starters or important reserves the Ravens have already lost before the regular season even kicks off. I'm sold on the Ravens defense being really good. I just don't think it'll be good enough to regularly dominate games, which is what it might take to overcome the offense's struggles. From an unproven running game to a questionable offensive line to a rusty quarterback dealing with a back injury, the offense just doesn't have anything that will consistently threaten defenses. It's too difficult to win that way in an offensive league. The bet here is that the Ravens go 7-9 and miss the playoffs for the fourth time in five years.
