Staff Predictions Week 10: Ravens vs. Falcons


Offensive MVP:

Picks By Player Pick Stat Prediction
Gene Winner Todd Heap 5 catches, 78 yds receiving, 2 TDs Red-zone struggles lately for the offense; that means they will try and get the ball to Heap.
Conoon Kim Anquan Boldin 8 catches, 108 yds receiving, 1 TD Boldin will man-handle a weak Falcons secondary. He should have a breakout game.
Bart Raeke Anquan Boldin 98 yds receiving, 1 TD His number is due as the “open one” in the rotation.
Alex Bishop Joe Flacco 329 yds passing, 2 TDs, 1 INT I don’t expect the Ravens to be up to much, so expect Flacco to drop back and throw.

Defensive MVP:

Picks By Player Pick Stat Prediction
Gene Winner Terrell Suggs 6 tackles, 2 sacks Mattison is finally moving Suggs in different spots to get pressure. Suggs will have a breakout game!
Conoon Kim Ed Reed 4 tackles, 1 INT Reed will get his 50th interception and become the 4th player in NFL history to have 50 INTs averaging 20+ yards per return.
Bart Raeke Ed Reed 5 tackles, 1 INT He’s been sending a message from the moment he came off the PUP.
Alex Bishop Josh Wilson 5 tackles, 1 INT Going out on a limb here, but I expect him to play over Washington. I see a pick coming…

Final Game Score:

Picks By Who wins? Game Score
Gene Winner Baltimore Ravens 34 – 27 This could be an offensive shoot out, and the Ravens have plenty of playmakers to score points now.
Conoon Kim Baltimore Ravens 27 – 21 I respect the Falcons and what they’re capable of, but the Ravens are looking too good to lose right now.
Bart Raeke Baltimore Ravens 20 – 16 Both teams are tough, but I simply see the Falcons running out of answers by the end of the game.
Alex Bishop Baltimore Ravens 27 – 20 My original prediction was the Ravens losing a close one. But after a strong outing vs. Miami, I think they may be able to pull out a nail-biter.
