Ravens vs Titans

This week features two AFC teams squaring off in Tennessee for the right to get into the AFC championship. Who would of ever thought after the year Baltimore had in 2007 they would be a contender for the AFC championship. In 2007, the Ravens record was 5-11 and had to fight through rough times with injuries etc. Now in 2008 season the Ravens ended up turning around their season and had a record of 11-5. The key factor to them turning their season around was because of their defense and their new Quarterback Joe Flacco. Flacco is a Quarterback out of Delaware which is a division 1-AA school. Flacco was drafted 1st round pick 18. He's a 6'7 Quarterback that is mobile and can throw the ball with accuracy and precession. He creates a problem with any defense he's faced up against. The Ravens secondary will put up another big fight just like they did when they faced the Titans earlier in the season. When they first met the outcome of the came was a 13-10 win by the Titans. The Ravens defense proved that the Titans offense could be somewhat stopped. Unlike the game earlier in the year, I believe the Ravens offense will step up their game and Flacco will be able to throw some touchdowns and less interceptions. The Titans last game that they played ended up being a total nightmare for the Titans. Although they didn't really play their starters for a majority of the game it's still embarassing to get shut out in your last game of the season. Even though the Titans have the best record in the NFL I still believe that Flacco and the Ravens defense will put up a big fight and emerge the victor.

  1. With the Titans getting defeated by the NYJ, they are still very strong and the Ravens have been strong throughout their season even with Flacco being a rookie. The first round of the playoffs was tough for every team and all the underdog teams having rookies and Flacco and the Ravens were the only team with the rookie QB that advanced. Going with the Ravens on this one J & J.
