The Baltimore Ravens (2-0) are gearing up for a showdown against the visiting Indianapolis Colts (1-1) at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday in Week 3 of the 2023 NFL regular season. Spoiler alert: this game might end up looking dreadful, and perhaps even worse than that.
Last weekend saw the Flock fly all the way up to Ohio to pay a visit to the Jungle in Cincinnati and defeat the Bengals dropping the intra-divisional rivals to a putrid 0-2 record two weeks into the season.
This week marks the final game at home for the Ravens before they embark on a two-week road trip in which they will have to battle the two other AFC North foes in Cleveland (Week 4) and Pittsburgh (Week 5) before coming back home to host Tennesse (Week 6).
It's still too early to call this team a postseason team, but history is siding with them in a very promising way. What is not siding with Baltimore these days is the injury bug, which is leaving the Ravens' depth dangerously thin.
Good for the Flock, Indy will arrive in Maryland without a much better outlook considering the Colts won't have their QB1 available barring a rather shocking surprise respective to rookie Anthony Richardson's concussion. Enter Minshew Mania.
As we count down to kick-off (if the weather allows it to go on as planned) on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET, here's a roundup of what the players and coaches have had to say in the lead-up to the third game of the season. Get ready to be fired up!
