The Baltimore Ravens are taking on the Tennessee Titans in Nashville. Here are three predictions for the big week 6 game:
1. It will be harder than it should be for the Baltimore Ravens:
The Baltimore Ravens are coming off one of their most frustrating losses in recent memory. That’s saying something. The Ravens losses in the past few years are probably more memorable than most of their victories, but the loss in Cleveland could have been the worst. In a game where the Ravens defense only allowed 12 points, the Ravens found ways to win. While it’s time to stop talking about the Ravens 12-9 loss to the Browns, the Ravens mistakes have to be in the back of your head.
Every game the Ravens have played this season (except for their 47-3 win over the Bills) has seen costly mistakes. This Ravens team can’t help themselves, mistakes are going to happen. The Ravens have had two field goals blocked this season, and Sam Koch suffered a blocked punt as well. Dropped passes and fumbles have been a problem. Penalties and poor ball security on punt returns have been troubling for the Ravens as well.
The Ravens are playing a game on the road. Their opponent isn’t a pushover, despite the Ravens being slight road favorites. The Ravens haven’t been playing sharp enough to go through a day without frustrating their fans a bit. This looks like a game where the Ravens will win, but it will be a fight.
