The Ravens are so difficult to defend against. It's not like you can just blitz them either because this OLine is very good and if you back off, it gives Jackson too much time. I don't think this is a great team or anything but they are a nightmare to play.

You definitely can't play Man coverage against them, Lamar will gash the fuck out you.

Why are the Patriots the only team allowed to run pick plays?
In a similar vein, did anyone else think it was really sh!tty that NBC broadcast Jackson's "tell" sign of wiping his hands on his towel in the middle of the damn game?? Ravens called a timeout a play or two after that - I'm convinced for the purpose of telling Jackson to stop doing it so reliably.

That was an interesting game last night. I felt that when the Ravens got 17-0 up, they changed their gameplan and started playing a more routine style rather than the very unpredictable way they started off. I just wonder if that was a conscious plan so that they don't show their hand to the Patriots too much, considering they may need a few tricks up their sleeve when the playoffs come.

Jones looks good I think, some of the criticism has been excessive. He throws a really nice ball.

Michael Bennett is such a frustrating player, he'll just randomly go offside for no reason other than stupidity. He has a knack of doing it at bad times too, the amount of 3rd and longs he gave up fouls on for the Seahawks was ridiculous.

The Giants look good so far, hopefully they win.
