This game makes me nervous with all the injuries. I know the Ravens are banged up too, but Lamar is much better than Tua, and it could be shoot out all day long, weather permitting 

I'd prefer a shoot out over the long draw of the game that happened last week, as well as the injuries and players being hurt by the environment more than the game.

He played well in the opener.  Struggled against the Titans.  Was dead playing the Dolphins.  We'll see how the rest of the year plays out.

If he continues to struggle, the we put Quessenbarry in.  

Quessenberry wasn’t much better when he went in…

I actually think this is a much easier matchup for us than Miami

 

Baltimores secondary is banged up and we are less likely to see a bunch of 2 high like we did vs Miami. If they do go two high, I hope we see some James Cook getting the 6-9 catches rather than those going to Miss and Singletary the last two weeks.

 

Additionally, and more importantly, Baltimores pass rush is not very good and their rotation is shallow. I think Josh will have a very comfortable day on Sunday.

 

Now Lamar is obviously a much bigger threat than Tua but the Bills have been very good at containing him. Should be a fun game but I expect a convincing win.

Looking like hurricane Ian will have its leftovers for the game Sunday 

It looks as if there will be some rain and wind, but nothing extreme.  The ball will be wet and players need to have the right footwear, the passing game should be functional to a degree.

Last team with the ball could be the likely winner. Bass or Tucker can hit a 60 harder to win it.

Rain and 30 mph gusts as of now.

 

 

Wow. Not good for the Bills passing attack.

Agree with the Cook theme. I'm thinking he has a sneaky good game. Breaks one for a long gain and maybe a Td sprinkled in. I'm not see a convincing win by the Bill's. Just too many injuries to blow out a good Ravens team at their home.

Updated forecast 63 degrees with 53% chance of rain and wind at 15mph. Not as bad as first thought 

 

 

Right now the heaviest rain in NOVA/DC is for Saturday during the day.

 

What's left of the eye gets thru here on Monday.  

 

I guess it's track could shift.

Lamar is relying on Mark Andrew’s like crazy right now, who has a 36.5% target share so far. For reference, Diggs is at 27.5% so far this year and Kupp (who had 191 targets) was at 31.7% last year. They should just double him every play and force Lamar to throw to these other guys that he obviously doesn’t trust.

Some of y’all can keep trying to talk yourselves into Dane Jackson starting opposite Tre White in a few weeks, but I’d be shocked if it’s not Kaiir Elam. 
 

The guy has elite attributes, is a hard worker and passed his first test with flying colors.   

 

I dont care who plays.  Just put the best players on the field and win the damn games.

Because Lamar is not good at spreading the ball around.  The key to beating that offense has always been to contain Lamar and cover Andrews.  Always has been and always will be.  

 

You can look at any Ravens loss or bad games and you will see Lamar had under 100 yards rushing and Andrews had under 60 yards catching.  Mostly Andrews under 40 yards catching and Lamar under 80 yards rushing.

 

This is why Lamar, while is an Elite athlete, is not an Elite QB.  When he cant run and his seam pass to Andrews isnt there then that offense is garbage.

 

Saying all that... thats no easy feat.  Lamar really is an amazing elite athlete and hard to stop and Andrews is one of the best TEs in the league.  I think its a little easier now as I dont think their run game is as good as it was his MVP season.  None of their other targets are going to beat you even if they do catch some passes.

It's not that simple. Lamar is so difficult to stop with his duel threat. He also extends plays. Lamar loves to take shots down the field too.

Glad you added the last paragraph. I was gonna lay into you. I know you can take it. Lol

 

I do think Lamar is an elite QB. Not in the traditional sense. He's elite because of his legs and explosiveness. Also, he looks to be improved as a passer. He's the number one rated QB vs the blitz. So the game is likely slowing down for him. Also, he is rated first at throwing the ball downfield at 9.2 yards per pass. I think he has two viable receivers in Bateman and Duevernay. I wouldn't be surprised if either beats the banged up young Bills secondary for a few long plays.
