The Lions come into Baltimore to take on the Ravens this Sunday. Matthew Stafford has been ruled out for Detroit while Terrell Suggs remains a game-time decision. Honestly, I can't see us losing this one even with how bad we've been playing. Detroit's secondary is pretty terrible and they're pass-rush isn't all that good (but improved from last year). I still expect Calvin to put up nice numbers, maybe even Brant Johnson. I can't see them doing enough to beat us though. Look for Flacco to have a big day.

I don't think Flacco will have a big day but I do think Ray Rice will have one the ground, and D Will through the air too since Clayton is out!!!!!

Ravens 24
Lions 14

Ray Rice 2 TDs!
D Will 1 TD!

We Lose This By A Billion Points!!!!!!!

This is probably the most likely scenario. In fact I'd rather lose and just get the miss of the playoffs out of the way before going to Pittsburgh.

Justin Harper has been activated from the practice squad. Charles Ali was waived to make room for him. I like it, maybe Harper can actually get separation from the defense. He probably won't play though.

It took me a bit to finally pick Baltimore, but I can't see Baltimore not losing this game.

35-27 is my pick.

Harper was great at getting seperation all pre-season better then basically any WR. he just had sketchy hands. The man has talent but he just screams Clarence Moore. Hopefully he can improve his catching or he will be a nice WR. But I still have my hopes up on Eron Riley

YES!!! Kelley Washington is going to start in place of Mark Clayton!! This means D-Will in the slot! Hopefully we go deep to Washington and Williams and have Mason work the sidelines.

Also, Jared Gaither and Ed Reed are inactive, and Suggs will play.

Both McGahee and Rice looked good on the ground today, as did D-Will and Mason through the air. I'm glad that Cameron didn't call too many pass-plays when the ground game was clearly working. Flacco went 13-20 for 220ish yards. I think that's when he's most effective, throwing over 30 times just isn't good for him IMO.

sloppy, but a good tough win

That's what you have to do when you play the Lions. Good day, especially with the Dolphins beating the Jags. I just hope the Colts don't shut it down.

Or if the Steelers decide to show up and beat you. Haha.

Impressive win.

they said they'll play their starters vs. Jacksonville. Good news for us. If they beat the Jags, and we beat Chicago, then we overtake the #6 Wildcard spot. For the time being, we still have to beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh, (I know there playing awful, but they always play us tough)

I think it will all come down to the Pittsburgh game, cause after that, its Oakland and we're in. But Jacksonville has to lose, and New England has the win the NFC East.

Don't underestimate the Raiders. The Steelers did and look at what happened.

As long as Gradkowski plays, I'm worried about that game. They are a team that could really match up well against us.

How bout I dont care who the QB is for Oakland, as a Ravens fan watching this team all year there isn't a game I feel like we're gonna win outright, because you never know which Ravens will show up.

I agree with you here, even if our defense does well what will Cameron do? Will he run it again or will he go back to pass 1st which worked for the 1st 6 weeks until the league figured out it was only going to Mason or Rice?

Well, the Raven's don't lose to sub-par teams. Harbaugh does a pretty good job of keeping the team focused on one week at a time. They won't lose the games that they're supposed win.

On paper, the Raiders are better than sub par. If Gradkowski was their qb for the whole year, I think they'd be flirting with .500. They beat a very solid Bengal, Eagle, and Steeler team. Granted the Steelers are struggling, they're still solid nonetheless.

The Raiders have been beating teams they should lose to and losing to teams they have a good chance against. They play up and down to their competition.
