THis game is absolutely set up perfectly for an experienced Ravens team. The Ravens are going to play with a "chip" on their shoulder this Sat due to being dissrespected and embarressed a few weeks ago by the Broncos(9and a half point dogs). Also the Ravens are healthy (Yanda, Ellerbe, Lewis, Pollard) didn't play and Suggs was coming off another injury. Plus it was the first game without Cam. Finally Fox and Harbaugh had words during the handshake. I expect a completely different game for the Ravens this Saturday.
For the Broncos I don't like the bye at all. when you are hot you want to keep playing. John Fox is not a very good coach and will not have the Broncos mentally ready to play. Also its going to be cold (22 degrees) and on grass. Manning doesn't play well in these situations. Remember the Pats games in cold NE. Finally the Broncos kicker has been shaky this year.
I said it on an earlier post I was more concerned about the Pats and the Colts because of the intangibles.
Ravens go in a do what they do best. Turn the game into a street fight and Flacco does just enough. I expect a huge game from Ray Rice.
