Here's where the Baltimore Beatdown community can converse about Sunday's game.

The Ravens have the opportunity to make a statement to the rest of the NFL that they're still the team to beat.

All week, the narrative that teams are playing the Ravens tougher than they've seen in years past based on winning the Super Bowl last year has been present. That's probably true as it's an easy way for the opposition to get extra hyped for a regular season NFL game, especially if there are no divisional implications.

After getting whipped by Denver in the season-opener, this is Baltimore's chance to prove it can go toe-to-toe with offenses of that caliber. A lot of of players think that Denver game was a bit of an anomaly, even though Denver's been able to do that to most teams this season.

If the Ravens are able to slow the Packers' offense down and come away with a win, it will show the rest of the league that this organization hasn't gone anywhere.

Kickoff is at 1 p.m. at M&T Bank Stadium.
