Another home game and another lackluster opponent. Which Ravens team will show up? The Bears are a 1-4 team. The one win came against Pittsburgh. In 3 out of 5 games they kept to within one score. Like Baltimore their offense ranks among the worst in the league largely because of a terrible passing attack. Also like Baltimore, they have a strong rushing attack that could match up well vs our lackluster rush defense. Jordan Howard has been a stud so far and it's doubtful that that will end this week. Stopping the run has been a struggle since Brandon Williams' foot injury. WIllie Henry seemed to step up last week vs Marshawn Lynch, but is still far from a 1 for 1 replacement. Perhaps they'll have an answer against the 2nd year running back? However, the best deterent would be to get out to an early 2 score lead like in Oakland forcing them to make rookie QB Mitch Trubisky pass the ball. While the Bears offense is nothing special right now, they do have a stalwart defense whose strength has been in their secondary prevent teams frfom averaging more than 205 yards per game. Against their middling rush defense, however, Ravens running backs may find some day light. The bears have given up ab average of 100 yards per game while the Ravens have notched 130 yards per game on average. This will be another battle in the trenches. I don't see Bears runaway here, but think the Ravens could even with a measured approach on offense. Being at home may help. Ravens 23 - Bears 16. Flacco with another pedestrian outing 220 and a TD, no picks and a 145 yard 1 TD rushing effort as well. Presumably we will be without Brandon Williams yet again and the Bears lone TD is scored on the ground.
