Week 2:Baltimore Ravens(1-0) at Philadelphia Eagles(1-0)

This time last year this match up could've been a early match up of a possible Superbowl game fast forward a year later the self proclaimed "Dream Team" missed the playoffs last year the Baltimore Ravens however came very close to advancing towards the Superbowl this could've easily been a game of the week but with the Eagles missing the playoffs and struggling and barley beating the Browns this game will go under the rug a little who do you guys have winning for the week 2 match up? My Pick Ravens 23-20

Both defenses are pretty damn good.

Offensively, different story. BAL looked really good against CIN, while Philly didn't impress by a mostly no-name CLE defense. Well check that, Reid passed an ailing Vick to death and ignored one of the top RB's for 3 quarters of the game. So I really don't know if Philly's offense will struggle or if Reid is just sabotaging them.

Use the run to set up the pass. The Eagles have McCoy, but I like what's behind him in Dion Lewis (when healthy) and two rookies in Bryce Brown and Chris Polk. I really think, of Reid allows it, those runners could absolutely wear down defenses this year. Protect Vick by keeping BAL off balance with plenty of rushes, strike deep when the safeties have to pinch up and otherwise take what they give.

I believe the Eagles are REALLY talented. Maclin and Jackson look really good. If Reid doesn't over complicate everything and out-trick himself but instead stays basic, their talent will win out. Liked the Eagles D-Line play A LOT, and Demeco Ryans look re-energized. I think the outside backers and safeties are still the weakness but believe they're good enough on the corners and line to mask that well enough.

I think Vick can bounce back, and philly will be @ home.

Does Maclin play? Gonna need him to, he's our best receiver.

I can't call it....I think it could go either way.

Baltimore Ravens are my #2 ranked team in the AFC after week one and they beat the most disappointing team of week one, Philly. I loved what I saw from Joe Flacco, he may just step up to the plate and become an Elite QB in 2012.

Ravens. I won't give a number but Baltimore just seems far more poised than the Eagles. I'm still waiting for when Trent Edwards to get his start later this year when Vick inevitably goes down.

This is a big one. I want to see if Vick gets himself hurt off a Ray Lewis sack. Either way, I got Philly winning 24-17
