Peyton will be forced into multiple INT's because he will be forced to throw every down because the Colts running game will do diddly squat.

The Ravens are not the Chiefs and the Colts aren't playing a dome anymore.

If Peyton plays like Peyton the Colts should win.

I agree about their run offense, I'd be surprised if they top 60. Peyton will have to carry them in this one.

I see this game playing out similar to the Steelers-Colts game last year, except the Ravens are better than the Steelers were last year and they are at home. I think people picking the Colts are underestimating the importance of the bye week and home field advantage. I think the Ravens and their crowd will get on the Colts early and by the time the Colts recover it'll be too late.

Ravens 27 - Colts 17

I see the Ravens winning in a close one. Something like 16 - 13.

I think Ogden will do better then he has in the past against Freeny, I think he knows that it is his last chance to get another ring and possibly his last game in Baltimore.

ahhh, so because they've lost their last 4 on the road, baltimore is going to blow them out and one could reasonably conclude that indy has less than no chance?

They have reasonable doubt to conclude that the Ravens are an overall better team with home field advantage. Not to mention a history of poor playoff performances under Tony Dungy.

No one can really predict a blowout. So both predicting them and criticizing people for predicting them seems awfully pointless.

One could say the same thing about virtually any playoff match up. These teams are supposed to be good, no game is a gimme.

J-Crack >>> Colts Run D....

Ravens are going to try and to pass the ball early than start pounding it. The Chiefs gameplan was seriously weak. I figured a freaking 4 year old put it together. The Colts were only .500 on the road this season, HELLO.

The one-week layoff may hurt the Ravens, who really knows, but comparing regular season stats and what the playoffs could bring is not a good way of determining who wins. The playoffs are a different breed, the stats from Week 1-Week 17 matter but they aren't going to get you anywhere. I'm a homer, so I'm obviously picking the Colts but I don't think Manning will be shaken. The INTs were not poor passes like they were in Playoffs of the Past. They were simple miscommunications between Manning and Harrison, while rare, they still happen. Has it happened before like it has on Sunday? No. Is there a reason to believe it'll happen consecutively? I don't think so.

BTW, J-Crack, lol.

one thing that people are overlooking is the way baltiomre plays with rest...

after our bye, we were the 1st team to beat the saints in the superdome this year
- after our loss to the bengals, billick gave the team a 5 day rest, which was another bye, and then we came out and beat the chiefs at arrowhead
-also we havnt lost after a bye since something like 2001

baltimore is a veteran team who needs rest... the bye helped those aging players rest and they will be scary saturday

I think we will win this game pretty easily....we will come out fired up and we WILL pressure Manning.

Do people realize that Peyton threw 3 picks last week against the woeful KC defense? And he was at home? I don't even want to know what he is gonna do against us. :twisted:

He's gonna have to play 10 times better than last week because Joseph Addai won't be much of a factor.

23-10 Ravens

you're really contradicting urself with alot of ur statements.

first you say that the colts step up in big games,

and then you say that peyton doesn't choke, his teammates collapse around him. :?

I think it will be a close game especially through the first half similar to the home game last year except this time the Ravens will be the one pushing the colts around.

I think there are a few major factors that will influence the outcome of the game.

The last two games Freeney ate Odgen up but Odgen has been playing the best ball of the last few years this time around. The major thing that was missing in the game last year was a power running game against the Colts small ends. I believe that Billick will start by calling numerous runs to the left side to let Odgen and Mughelli get a few early shorts in on Freeney unlike Matt used to.

The crowd noise will also be a big factor since the Ravens will audible and move around at the line a lot much like last year and Manning will not be able to audible as much as he normally can. But watching the offense and defense of the Colts and Ravens play each other last year was probably the highlight of the year for me, it was like a chess match.

The Ravens secondary might have trouble against Wayne and Harrison. Cmac has been playing great ball this year I expect him to contain, not shutdown, Harrison for the game and possibly get a pick along with his customary two pass interference calls per game. The real question mark is how will Rolle be able to play against Wayne. If Rolle gets beat early deep it will be a long day for the Ravens since it will force them to commit a safety over the top all game on him, rather then being able to mix the coverages up more.

The Ravens Defensive Line against the Colts offensive line is the most importart matchup though. I expect Suggs and Pryce to win most of the one on one matchups they get but the real problem is going to be getting to Manning without him being able to step up. If Ngata and Gregg are able to get penetration against the middle three of the Colts, it will be the end for Manning as he will not have a strong pocket to avoid the outside rush.

I'd have to say 27 - 21 for the Ravens.
