    RAVENS: Baltimore is looking to figure out a way to end its slow starts. The Ravens have managed three first-quarter points over the past three games. That field goal came Sunday after the Chiefs fumbled at their own 42. According to The Baltimore Sun, over the last four games, the Ravens have totaled 168 yards on 43 plays, an average of 3.9 yards per play. "There are a lot of reasons. When you watch the tape, there are a lot of reasons," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Getting first downs, that's the key."

    After last Sunday, this could be a game in our favor. Talk about looking pitiful.

    Give the ball to Rice.

    I've watched a few of their games this year and they repeatedly just force Flacco to air it out.

    I hope they do the same this week.

    This is a winnable game. TOs and penalties and dropped balls. I predict the offense will give the D some help this game. They need to be ready for war.

    I have no idea what to expect to be honest. Anything can happen. With these guys you just have no idea how they're gonna perform.

    We always help teams, to start looking dangerous again.

    Remember the Eagles last year? They sucked until they faced us...then it was SB for them once again.

    Don't you mean the Giants? Also, it helped they got a lot of their injured players back.

    Nope Eagles....don't you remember? Rob talked all that crap...and they exploited our LB's?

    They were doing bad before facing us. Bills were destroying vick. Then they faced us, killed us, and it was "Dream Team/SB" Talk for them once again

    Yeah, I was confused. You didn't say "talk" in the op so I thought it was the Giants. And yes, I do remember, sadly.

    Dude, Philly didn't even make the playoffs so obviously it wasn't SB for them again.

    Dude, they were pegged for the SB once the season started. Started off bad, everybody and their fan base wrote them off...they faced us, killed us, and it was SB talk for them all over again.

    they won't have to worry about crowd noise this week, so we'll probably see a lot more no-huddle/hurry-up offense.

    I bet killing Romo on the first series is high on their list.

    No doubt, we make opposing teams and their fans' fantasies come true. I say that to my fellow Cowboy fans as well as my friends who root for other teams and hate the Cowboys. They say "I cannot believe player X is playing this way. He is playing out of his mind this game.". Answer=Cowboys.

    Just when they expect a Cowboy strength to dominate their team's obvious weaknesses, we come out and do just the opposite. It's totally baffling to me. Who did Jerry piss off?

    I really don't like the fact that Baltimore played so poorly against the Chiefs last week (and still won). It means that they're going to want to be more focused and efficient this week; they're going to be confident, and they're gonna take it out on us. On top of that, they're playing with their huge homefield advantage.

    Cowboys win 34-10. :p:
