Default Remaining schedule

Well, what is our final record? I will say 12-4. My two wins first:

TITANS--
I like our D against the Titans, I think we match up better than their D against our O, so I see that as a win. Unless we figure out something on the run game, Miller and Ward will probably be our possession game.

BROWNS--
Unless the something crazy happens or we have nothing to play for, we beat the Browns

RAVENS--
Now the Ravens, this is going to be a tough game, I pick this as a loss. What are the keys to this game? Other than obvious ones like run the ball, protect the ball. It is obviously going to be about making less mistakes, but how would you call the offense? Who has had a fair amount of success against their D this year? What did they do? This is not one that I think they can't win but unless we do a 180 on offense they will shut us down. Although I don't think it is out of the question for our D to win two in a row for us.

keep in mind, we have never swept the ravens in the regular season.. NOT ONCE! this has got to be the year that changes though.

i dont like thinking ahead, but i will anyhow.
i think we beat the browns with our backups like we did buffalo in 2004.. we have better depth this year than 2004, and buffalo was a better team than cleveland is now. they could have clinched a playoff birth with that win. not to mention the second stringers will be giving it all they've got for a chance to whoop the rival browns themselves. leftwich will probably be auditioning for a starting job somewhere next year.

Nope.

I think we beat the Ratbirds. Then we go after teh Titans with out a WHOLE lot of wrinkles in the D. The we beat the Browns... maybe lose to the Titans, maybe not.
After all, if we beat the Ravens, we are two games up on ALL our competition for 2nd place in the AFC and a bye. Colts won't catch Tennessee. So with a win next week, at WORST, we are in third place in the playoffs..

Win next week and aganoist the browns... we are in second, hands down.

I think we end up 12-4... though my homer says 13-3.

FWIW-I'll throw out a prediction...

@Baltimore - Flacco has played nicely in his rookie season, but like most rookie QBs in Dec, he's not ready for the spotlight.(i.e. Eli struggled in '05 Dec b/c that was his first Dec month where the Giants played with alot on the line) Prolly Steelers win.

@Tennessee - The Steelers' #1 ranked run D should shut them down, Collins won't be able to make plays. Prolly Steelers win.

Cleveland - W

Tennessee will also have to travel to a hot(and finally healthy) Indy team, so they could very well lose out the #1 seed when all is said and done.

We lose at Baltimore. Defense to good, Dallas manhandled our offensive line with vanilla blitzes. Baltimore is going to eat it with those "exotic" blitzes.

I think we end up 12-4, which is great because my prediction was 10-6. Either way, a win in Baltimore is pretty much the AFC north clincher and it wont be easy.

I think no matter how flawed the Titans are at QB, will will see a running game they have that we wish we had. White, Johnson and a real blocking Fullback in Hall. Plus, a solid O line, not the greatest, but one that is reasonably healthy and works well together.

I too am pessimistic about our O in Balt. Its been a house of horrors for us there. Our best chance of victory will be to somehow get a nice lead early..14-17 pts.. that really puts the pressure on Flacco, and then hang on from there....otherwise I think we lose a close one by yet another fffing last sec Stover field goal

^^^Thats me looking at it objectively

But having witnessed what we did last night and then the week before going up to NE(Where we haven't won in a long time...sound familiar)

I say to all ravens/fans..Bring IT B****es!!

HERE WE GO STEELERS!!!!!!!HERE WE GO!!!

I say we go 9-7 and win the division.

I'm sticking with my preseason prediction, however flawed.
