Week 8 - Ravens at Cardinals
Several analysts believe the Arizona Cardinals have one of the worst rosters in the NFL. The Cardinals didn’t trade DeAndre Hopkins but safety Budda Baker does want to be traded. Additionally, quarterback Kyler Murray is recovering from his torn ACL. This all means the 2023 season could be a rough one for the Arizona Cardinals.
These are the kinds of games that the Ravens need to win. With the NFL being so unpredictable, teams have to capitalize and put the teams that are in vulnerable positions away. It’s safe to assume that Baltimore will do that in its matchup against Arizona and get a win against the Cardinals.
Ravens win (5-3)
Week 9 - Ravens vs. Seahawks
After trading away Russell Wilson last offseason, expectations were low for the Seattle Seahawks. However, Geno Smith stepped up, and Seattle was a competitive team. Now, the Seahawks will return this season with a ton of young talent and a confident Geno Smith. They may even be able to compete with the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC West.
However, they may not be able to compete with Baltimore in this game. Seattle has some promising young defenders, but as a unit, the Seahawks struggled defensively. Unless they turned things around, it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to stop this Todd Monken-coached offense.
Ravens win (6-3)
