Ravens vs. Eagles: Baltimore Sun staff predictions

Kevin Cowherd

Ravens 24, Eagles 19

First away game is always tough. And Philly crowds are as warm and fuzzy as the exercise yard at San Quentin. But Joe Flacco and the new-look Ravens' offense will prevail.

The Ravens' offensive line will face its toughest challenge with the Eagles' depth in their defensive front, disrupting Joe Flacco's timing with his receivers. And the defense will miss outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, who would have contained quarterback Michael Vick.

The Ravens are due for a letdown and the Eagles can't be as bad as they were in Cleveland last week, can they?

Peter Schmuck

Ravens 26, Eagles 23

Michael Vick & Co. present a whole different challenge for a Ravens defense that is still figuring itself out, but the Ravens offense should still score enough points to win.

Matt Vensel

Ravens 23, Eagles 20

The Ravens are on a short week, they experienced major letdowns the previous two seasons after winning their opener, they are on the road, and the Eagles' speed on both sides of the ball could give them serious problems. But after watching Michael Vick get picked off four times by the Browns, all I can think about is Ed Reed and Lardarius Webb dancing in the end zone after a pick-six.

Aaron Wilson

Ravens 31, Eagles 20

Michael Vick's erratic ways continue as Ravens minimize damage done by LeSean McCoy. No-huddle offense and an efficient Joe Flacco remain Ravens' watchwords while Ray Rice's touches continue.

I highly doubt a mistake-prone Michael Vick will show up for a second straight week. This won't be about a letdown or looking ahead to New England. Philadelphia is just a talented team.
