Predictions for Baltimore Ravens ahead of “dress rehearsal” week
Defense pitches a shutout:
Death, taxes, and dominant Ravens defenses; these are the few things that are guaranteed in life. Focusing on the latter of those three things, Baltimore has always been known for great defenses, and 2018 appears to be no exception. In fact, 2018 can continue trending in incredible fashion for the Ravens.
During the preseason, the Ravens defense has been sacking quarterbacks non-stop and forcing turnovers like it’s going out of style. From the starters to the bench players to the camp bodies, there isn’t a weak spot anywhere on this team’s defense. That’s why during dress rehearsal week, the team will pitch a shutout and set the tone for 2018.
The Miami Dolphins got shutout last season against the Ravens and things don’t look much better going into dress rehearsal. Sure, the Dolphins were without quarterback Ryan Tannehill, but if you can honestly tell yourself that he was the reason the team lost you’re disillusion.
The biggest difference between this game and last year’s is how much deeper the Ravens are across the board. The pass rushers are stacked, with youngsters like Tim Williams and Kamalei Correa showing off their worth. Defensive backs aren’t hard to come by, either. And that defensive line? Forget about it.
No, dress rehearsal week will simply be more of the same for the Ravens defense. The Dolphins aren’t exactly world beaters, and Vegas certainly isn’t in their corner. A Ravens defense that’s starving for competition and an opportunity to prove itself will be more than satisfied on Saturday night. Get ready for “purple pain,” Miami!
