Oakland Raiders at Baltimore Ravens
This should be titled the “Show Me Game of the Week”. Both teams are off to good starts, but have yet to show folks that they are for real.
The Raiders’ wins came over the Saints and Titans – both on the road but let’s face it, they both suck. The Ravens’ wins are over the Bills, Browns, and Jaguars – quite the offensively-challenged bunch.
This matchup should answer the following questions:
- Can the Raiders beat a team with a winning record?
- Can the Ravens beat a team that is not so god-awful offensively?
My money is on the Raiders in this one. After all, they’ve already shown they can win on the road… Raiders 27, Ravens 23.
