Both teams are missing key players...the question is, who do you guys think is hurt more by their key injured player?

Baltimore with Suggs...or...New England with Hernandez?

I'd personally go with Baltimore and losing Suggs. I think without that top notch pass rusher, it will take a bit of the pressure on Brady that would be enormous with this present o-line off and let him sit back and thread some passes. I also think the loss of Suggs could help with the run game quite a bit as well, and Ridley has shown these first two weeks to be a player we should can all be legitimately excited about.

What do you guys think?

Hardly. They're playing the Ravens right after a very uncharacteristic loss.

If they get smacked around by the Ravens and the offense falters because of the OL or struggles with the passing game (related problems, granted), there will be a lot of criticism.

For 2 years the team has had the label of great offense who can't quite get it done in big games due to the OL's tendency to crap itself at key moments and the lack of an outside/deep passing game. Now, I don't necessarily buy into those complaints but a lot of "Joe Six Pack" Pat fans do and the media feeds off of and into that stuff.

If the Pats lose 31-13 or something, the media and average fans will be crucifying the offense - especially given how bad the Ravens D has been so far.

If the Pats win 20-17 people (including Pats Fans) will be crucifying the offense. The fact is people expect more from the Patriots.
For whatever reason I feel that this may be the week that the offense gets going. It has the big game feel to, people has been questioning everything, this is the type of game that Brady shows up for.

Then people are stupid. 20-17 is a fine score to win by. Just ask Marshall Faulk.

If New England loses, it would fall to 1-2 and bring up the stat of the month: The Patriots haven't had a losing record since being 0-1 in 2003.

The Patriots haven't had a losing record since 2003 and if they lose this Sunday they will break an NFL record 146 game streak above .500


I mean, wow. That's a decade of winning. The next closest is the Ravens at ~60 games in 2008.

This team recovers tremendously after losses. I think they'll show up and make it a very competitive game, win or lose...

I'm putting money at the sportsbook that this ends in an tie.

Or.. by 3 in overtime - Cundiff gets redemption.

Trying to pay the light bill next month fellas.

DC and Baltimore are pretty close. Could professional wrestling writing be any better than that? Cundiff has jumped the railing! Oh god, he's kicking the game winning field goal! CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS

If you put ten bucks down on Cundiff kicking the game winning field goal and win, you'll be able to pay the light bill for the rest of your life

Cundiff is in Washington now, so might be tricky.
