I have a feeling this could be the lowest scoring game of the day. In fact, the over/under is lower than any other game, which shows the bookies are thinking the same thing. I think the Ravens injury report is a little deceptive. I don't think Todd Heap has ever NOT been on the injury report and Steve McNair is perpetually probable/questionable. However, they're certainly banged up and it would definitely be a plus to not have Jonathan Ogden on the field, even as he's getting older.
So it's been said all week, but I'll just make the point one last time. The offensive line REALLY needs to step up this week. Trent Dilfer is not quite as fleet of foot as he's never been. Let's just hope he doesn't get stuck in quick sand like he did last week. If he can just get a little time to throw and they can get Gore going, this is a very winnable game. Let's all think happy thoughts and take care of business.
