I have a good feeling about Sunday. Sorry to disappoint those who moronically think I want them to lose.

People are such goddamn assholes. Trying to buy tix for the game and scammers are everywhere.

Also Seattle is awesome

We'll have to see how it plays out, but simplifying things and letting your playmakers go make plays could work out in a game like this.

There has been a lot of over-thinking imo. I want to see a lot of 3 or 4 man rushes with good coverage behind it.

I agree.  Wink's been blitzing WAY too much this year.  It's great if you have the players to make that strategy successful but if all it's doing is leaving your secondary out to dry, maybe it's time to go a little more basic.  If you're not going to generate any pass rush regardless of what you do, at least have the secondary accounted for.

I don't see how the Ravens can win this game without generating a couple of turnovers that are converted into scores.  If it's a clean game, the Seahawks will win and by at least 10 points.  Seattle doesn't yield a huge amount of yards in their run defense but they're allowing 4.7 yards a carry so you would think the Ravens could pound the ball consistently and eat up the clock.  But my guess is, Harbaugh & Roman will try to do what they did in KC and come out firing.  And like in KC, that's why they'll lose.

Seattle's 2019:

 

Beat Cincinnati by 1 at home.
Beat the Steelers by 2 at Pittsburgh.
Lost to the Saints by 6 at home.
Beat the Cardinals by 17 at Arizona.
Beat the Rams by 1 at home.
Beat the Browns by 4 at Cleveland.

 

 

I'm expecting a competitive game with the Ravens having a chance to steal a win, and anticipating Wilson does enough late for the Seahawks to pull away.

The OCD part of my brain is completely on tilt by "on the road", "at Arizona", "in Cleveland".

NFL Network said the Ravens have the highest blitz rate of any team this year.  Problem is that without blitzing they get no pressure and good QBs will absolutely pick you apart if you don't get pressure.  It's why I said the Peters acquisition won't make a lot of difference.  The secondary is decimated and it will help there, but the problem with this defense is their front seven.   You can put all pro bowlers back there and it won't make a difference with this front seven.

Holding Seahwaks to FGs vs TDs could be the difference in this game. TOs as well, Wilson is due to turn it over at some point.

Averett is active but hasn’t practiced since Wednesday and has an ankle injury.

Peters will play a lot today.

Bennett Jackson makes his NFL debut today. He was drafted in 2014.

Awesome story.
