    Shocked it wasn't unanimously for Ravens actually.

    I honestly believe Dallas pulls an upset Sunday. 17-13

    Ian kind of nailed it with the description. If Cowboys win (which I think they will too), they might lose to Carolina which is sad.

    I agree with Calvin saying that they will play their best football so far in this game.

    I hate to say it but this is the type of team that Dallas usually loses to. They are a tough sound football team, similar to the Bears in that regard. They better play their A game or this could be another ugly one.

    This is the typical Ravens will come out and punch dallas right in the face and they will crumble. To go on record I hope I am 100% incorrect.

    Hidden in the Ravens solid record is the fact this isn't the same Raven's defense.

    Losing key pass rushers hurts. They have been getting killed in the rushing game and generally are just an average defense right now.

    They are better offensively than they have been but this is a winnable game for Dallas if they play it close to the vest and get key plays from the skill players around Romo.

    Balt deserves to be the favorite in this game but the Cowboys have to be close to full on desperate here. A win gets them back on track but a loss spells real trouble for a franchise that is getting kicked in the teeth by fans and media alike for every possible infraction.

    two pick dallas to win, just goes to show there's only two Dallas Koolaid drinkers left on that bus..... A dallas offensive line that can't open running lanes and can't pass block......what was that last Raven home stat, 19-1 in the last twenty....I'll go with the Ravens!!

    Sadly, I agree with you. One devastating hit by Ray Lewis or an Ed Reed pic six, and this team is done.

    P.S. If Reed does intercept a Romo pass, I can almost guarantee he takes it to da House. :(

    I hope we're the ones doing all the face punching.

    No NFC has won in Baltimore since 2006, a stretch of 11 games. Time for that to fall.

    Don't pay attention to that list of blowhards (says this blowhard, lol).

    They ALL picked the Giants over Dallas earlier, so this means nothing. The Titans beat the Steelers last night.

    I think this will be a strange game because the Ravens aren't the style of team we've become accustomed to. They are more finesse than brawn these days.

    Maybe those 2 picked Dallas because they aren't on the Ravens bandwagon yet like most people are.

    19-1 in their last 20 home games is a great stat. Kind of like that stat where a SB haven't loss their home openers since 1999.

    The Cowboys had two weeks to fix their weaknesses against the Ravens. I have a feeling this will be the best football the Cowboys will play so far this season.

    Not exactly. They were off Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday because of the new CBA rules.

    However, the Cowboys are healthier now with the rest.

    You are right. When I said 2 weeks, I also meant it on a mental level and not just physical.

    Norm Hitzges put a double play on the Cowboys to cover (if you're into that sort of thing) and said he thinks Dallas will win outright.

    For whatever that's worth, which ain't much.

    I don't think this is a good matchup for Dallas on the road.

    Dallas is too sloppy a football team to beat the Ravens on the road.

    This could get ugly if the the Cowboys blow early scoring opportunities.

    I did a 3-way parlay on the over for Steelers/Titans (phew!), Baltimore to cover, and the under for Baltimore/Dallas.

    The nice thing about betting against the Cowboys is that there's some comfort no matter what happens.
