Odds: Baltimore Ravens -3.5


Dallas is coming into Baltimore after a long bye week following their harsh week 4 loss to Chicago in what could easily be considered a MUST-win for them. Baltimore is coming off their sloppy week 5 victory against the Chiefs.

The teams have only met 3 times in the past the last match back in '08. Each of the past matchups the Ravens have won by more than 9 points.

It wont be an easy match up, especially seeing as how at home the Ravens will be able to more easily utilize their hurry-up offense.

Go Ravens!

I'm cautiously optimistic. Do I think we match-up well with Baltimore? Yes. We just need to contain Rice as much as possible. I hope we can get back some guys on the DL and we can see Raitliff for the first time this year.

I'm not afraid of Baltimore's defense, but I think we need to score first, try to calm the crowd down. If Baltimore jumps up to a lead, I don't think we have the mental fortitude to withstand that and the crowd, unfortunately.

The turnover margins is what worries me most. Seems like the Cowboys always have the turnover lever switched on whenever matched up against any ball-hawking team.

I would love to see this as the game where the Dakkas OL finally gets it going, but this is a tough Ravens defense. At the end of the day, physically road-grading the defender out of the way can makeup for any lack of scheme or protection sets. I'm hoping Calahan & Garrett call a game that allows the OL to attack instead of react.

I'm also interested in seeing what the BYE week brings. I saw SOME good things against Chi from the OL, but that needs to be sustained.

I really really hope we get some of our DL back, especially Ratiliff.

BTW, I wouldn't say this is a must-win but the schedule is a bit tough here. @BAL, @CAR, NYG, @ATL, @PHI.

I say must win because they're 3rd in their division. Can't really keep up if you don't put up a W when you're this far behind this early.

I think the game will stay close and the team that'll win will pull way ahead in the end. Don't expect the crowd to go out of the game either. M&T is really hard to quiet down. It'll be more about the offenses then the defense. Both of our teams O tend to be inconsistent.

Time for Ngata to have a big game!

I have a feeling about the Cowboys in this one. Of course everytime I have a feeling about the Cowboys it's been wrong.

Having 5 division games isn't that great. The Raiders were 6-0 a couple of years ago and still didn't make the playoffs.

Well, yes. But the whole being 3rd place and far behind is ridiculous. We are a half a game back and that's only because we already had our bye week. LOL. This isn't a must win but it would be a good win.
