In this game-day staple, blogger Matt Vensel makes four sometimes-courageous predictions for the game. All he asks is that you don't hold it against him whenever those predictions end up being embarrassingly wrong.
When Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning goes under center Sunday, starts barking out calls and then takes one final glance across the line of scrimmage, what he sees will bear very little resemblance to any Ravens defense that he's ever faced.
Right guard Marshal Yanda and safety Bernard Pollard did not practice all week, and they were among seven Ravens listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Ravens will play without Jameel McClain on Sunday against the Denver Broncos. The team's starting middle linebacker has a significant neck injury that he sustained against the Washington Redskins, coach John Harbaugh said today.
The Ravens will be the next team to try and defend Griffin and the Redskins. But for the Ravens, the Redskins' offense could pose a problem for a defensive unit that is ranked 23rd in the NFL against the run (125.8 yards a game).
Following a key turnover by Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Charlie Batch hit tight end Heath Miller to tie the game with 7:24 to go. He then led a late drive that resulted in Shaun Suisham's 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Steelers a 23-20 victory
Overpowering offensive tackles, Kruger has generated four sacks over the past three games heading into Sunday's AFC North showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Following a slow start to the season, Kruger has emerged as the Ravens' top pass rusher while being utilized primarily as a situational player on third downs.
Every morning, Monday through Friday, blogger Matt Vensel will hook you up with reading material -- mostly on the Ravens but with some other Baltimore sports stuff, too -- to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday.
