Wk7 BAL @ MIN WIN - I think this is a toss up actually, but I'll give it a homer pick
Wk8 MIA @ BAL WIN - Miami has struggled against Baltimore
Wk9 BAL @ TEN WIN - They have a tough defense, but the offense isn't scaring anyone
Wk11 BAL @ GB LOSS - Ravens do well after the bye, but a reloaded Rogers offense?
Wk12 HOU @ BAL WIN - QB situation is sketchy and Ravens defense takes advantage
Wk13 DET @ BAL WIN - Lions offense isn't scaring anyone
Wk14 BAL @ PIT WIN - This is a homer pick - can go either way imo

Wk16 IND @ BAL LOSS - Colts have quietly built an all star defense
Wk17 CIN @ BAL WIN - Bengals have owned us recently but I think this year that changes
