Wild Card Weekend: (5) Indianapolis at (4) Baltimore (CBS)
A not-so-often-talked-about rivalry. The Colts "return" to Baltimore. The animosity among Ravens/former Colts fans still exists. You've got the feel-good story of Pagano battling back and Luck and company giving the team nine-game improvement in the win column. Ray Lewis will be back. It may spark Baltimore.
Don't expect anyone to give the Ravens a chance outside of Ravens fans... and I'm just fine with that.
I'm not a Ravens fan but I'm picking them to win this game.
Colts only beat 3 teams over .500 all year, and one of those was last week with Chuck coming back.
The Ravens also only beat 3 teams over .500 this season.
Very happy for Chuck, he did a great job here... but with Lewis likely in the lineup, at home, against a Colts team that struggled greatly on the road I just don't see it.
I don't see it happening for the Colts either and getting Lewis back in the middle of that defense should help the Ravens. Lewis' days of being an impact player are over. At best he's an average linebacker now but that still might be better than what they've had in the last few games.
And I like forward to be given no chance in Denver and NE.
Of course no one is going to give the Ravens a chance against those two teams. You don't seem to be giving the Colts much of a chance because they haven't beaten many good teams and they're not a good road team. The same goes for the Ravens. They've lost 4 of their last 5 games and Flacco is terrible on the road.
