Tomorrow's game against the Atlanta Falcons is the first of the Baltimore Ravens' pre-season schedule. And as we all know, the pre-season is where veterans are fighting for position on the depth chart and young players are merely fighting for a spot on the final roster. Despite their motivation, there is going to be a lot of intensity during tomorrow's game. So here are five things that I think are going to happen.
1: Courtney Upshaw will be average; amassing five tackles, zero sacks, zero interceptions, one pass-deflection, and zero forced fumbles.
2: Nigel Carr will be the undrafted free agent who stands-out, collecting eight tackles, one sack, one interception, two pass-deflections, and zero forced fumbles.
3: Curtis Painter will return to his "deer in headlights" form he so famously trade-marked in Indianapolis. This will cause everyone to believe that Tyrod Taylor is our #2 QB even more.
4: Jacoby Jones will return a kick-off return for a touchdown.
5: There will be a fight between second/third string players near the end of the game. (Obviously this one is the long-shot of the predictions, but I think it is possible with the intensity these young players will be playing with.)
These are my predictions, take them or leave them. But either way I am excited for the football season to finally be underway. Feel free to share your five predictions you have for tomorrow's game in the comments below!
