Aight so $50. I’ll give ya Indy and 3. Since it’s gonna be a close one!

Ill just take them at +250 or whatever they are outright if Im feeling froggy. Not the situation where I want to bet against my team anyway. What you did with TB-Os I get. Doesnt hurt to lose 50 if they Os win those type games. Losing 50 on the Ravens as big favs just makes you feel stupid. The win doesnt take away that pain the same way.

Are there people who actually believe the Colts are more dangerous with Minshew than Richardson at this point? Even in the very limited experience Richardson has (roughly 5 quarters)?

 

The Colts are dealing with injuries and player absences far more damaging to their chances of winning than the Ravens are considering both teams current state.

 

We can talk cliche potential trap game as if the NFL isn't a week to week league to begin with, but I think not covering is a more realistic potential disappointment.

Yeah Minshew is a perpetual backup for a reason.

The weather may play a factor.  If the timing and path of the tropical storm hold up, it is due to be crossing the bay as a depression around 2pm on Sunday.  That would mean some rain, not as much as on Saturday, but also windy conditions.  Could affect both teams in the passing games and be a concern in the kicking games.

Richardson ruled out.

 

It's Minshew Mania!

C Ryan Kelly also out.

 

The 7 Ravens Mike B mentioned above did not practice again today so I assume none will play. They never play people who didn't practice.

 

Harbs also said Ar'Darius Washington might be out for the year. Sucks.

 

ETA They were all ruled out

Lots of injuries already. Hate it.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Typical Ravens football. Steal some wins against the sub par teams and hope some guys get healthy.

I am a little worried with so many players out.  I think 24-16 Ravens, but I could seee a sloppy weather game being a problem.

Trap game

In Week 3, I can't believe any team would be taking any other team for granted. All 32 teams are searching for their identity and playing themselves into form.

If this were a Week 14 game and the Ravens were like 9-3 and the Colts were 3-9, maybe it's a trap game but I can't imagine the players or coaches are looking past any opponent at this early point in the season.

With Hill out, I wonder how much we'll lean on the running game today. Could this be a situation where Gus gets 20+ carries? He's had 3 games over 20 carries in his career; 2 in 2018 and 1 in 2019. Perhaps Gus could be the old school, bell cow type of back for 1 game.

I agree. I feel like it’s not uncommon for a 4 win team to be a 9 win team the next year. You can’t overlook people the first few weeks. Harbaugh knows this.

If they lose it’s less trap, more bad weather slopfest with over 10% of your roster out.

I think Gordon and Drake both get carries today.

Jackson controlled the game vs. Cincinnati.  Would expect more of that today. 

Spread the wealth.  Get everyone involved. 

 

Stay ahead of the chains.  

 

Defensively show up on 3rd down and in the RZ. 


Minshew has started 24 games.  He just got 23 pass attempts last week.  
You wouldn't want him starting 17 games for you, but he's a high quality backup. 


Still, it's very hard for me to see the Colts winning this game without the Ravens helping them out - multiple turnovers, miscommunication in the Secondary, Special Teams lapse.
