Staff Predictions Week 4: Ravens vs. Steelers


Offensive MVP:

Picks By Player Pick Stat Prediction
Gene Winner Willis McGahee 89 yds rushing, 2 TDs The Ravens do a good job rushing against the Steelers tough D.
Conoon Kim Todd Heap 5 catches, 79 yds receiving, 2 TDs Flacco to Heap will be the next Manning to Clark.
Dan Soderberg Joe Flacco 225 yds passing, 2 TDs If the Ravens are going to win, it will be because of Flacco finding receivers in single coverage.
Rob Brown Willis McGahee 78 yds rushing, 38 yds receiving, 1 TD In a week where field position is key, and Ray Rice injured, look for Willis to find the end zone like he always does.

Defensive MVP:

Picks By Player Pick Stat Prediction
Gene Winner Ray Lewis 7 tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble Lewis was born for games like this.
Conoon Kim Terrell Suggs 6 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble Suggs is 1 sack away from 60 total in his career. He will reach 61 by the end of this game.
Dan Soderberg Ray Lewis 7 tackles, 1 forced fumble Ray will need to shut down Mendenhall to make the Steelers even more one-dimensional.
Rob Brown Ray Lewis 9 tackles, 1 sack A big running attack in the Steelers, Lewis will be flying all over the field.

Final Game Score:

Gene Winner Baltimore Ravens 23 – 22 Really too tough to call.
Conoon Kim Baltimore Ravens 17 – 13 Get ready for some hard-nosed football.
Dan Soderberg Baltimore Ravens 19 – 17 Points will be hard to come by and McGahee’s ball security worries me.
Rob Brown Baltimore Ravens 13 – 6 Ravens win an ugly one.
