I still believe that the defense from week 1 is stuck in the airport. The defense we saw face Peyton Manning, which was rather promising, that is.

Special teams is still without an ace returner, but they’re still serviceable. However, with a defense that’s allowing 26 PPG and not making up for it with turnovers, it’s tough to trust them just yet.

Dean Pees said Tuesday that it’s a matter of technique not being executed effectively. That’s a good enough reason to not start the Ravens defense.

If you need more proof, just review the touchdown by A.J. Green as he skipped by and watched 3 Ravens defenders all trip over one another in pursuit of him. Now is not the time for the Ravens defense. At least not this week.

There you have it. It’s a tough week for the Ravens. There’s bound to be a dogfight for the from a team once known as the AFC North favorites, whose last memory of the Ravens includes a 30-17 loss in the 2014 Wild Card playoff game. Will history repeat itself?
