2010 Ravens versus 2015 team, who would win?

A talented 2010 Ravens team finished the regular season with a dashing 12-4 record. Could the 2015 squad take them on?

Rather than discussing who would win the battle between the 2010 Baltimore Ravens and the 2015 team, watch the video below:

Scoring Summary

1st Quarter

10-yard TD completion from J. Flacco to M. Brown. Look for Marlon Brown to step up this offseason and secure his starting spot on the receiving corps. 7 2015 Baltimore, 0 2010 Ravens

1-yard TD run by R. Rice Trust in Trestman. He'll inevitably add some changes and pizzazz to the offense, but the Ravens' best shot at another playoff appearance is to run the ball successfully. 7 2015 Baltimore, 7 2010 Ravens

2nd Quarter

21- yard INT for TD return by R. Lewis. No doubt Flacco will throw interceptions in 2015. Hopefully Trestman doesn't have No. 5 leaving the pocket too often. 7 2015 Baltimore, 14 2010 Ravens

59-yard TD completion from J. Flacco to S. Smith Sr. S^3 will need to play at a higher level than he did in 2014. I believe that he will. 14 2015 Baltimore, 14 2010 Ravens

Third Quarter

11-yard TD run by J. Forsett. Let's eke out the tough yards, shall we? Forsett will carry the team to wins and that's not a request. 21 2015 Baltimore, 14 2010 Ravens

56-yard TD completion from J. Flacco to T.J. Houshmandzadeh. The Ravens secondary needs to step up against strong-armed quarterbacks. Our corners did not jam receivers at the line of scrimmage in 2014, for reasons none other than to play the game safe. This year I expect Dean Pees to send more pressure against quarterbacks and disrupt the offense's tempo at the LOS. 21 2015 Baltimore, 21 2010 Ravens

25-yard TD completion from J. Flacco to Anquan Boldin. Again, the Ravens defense is the League's best when stopping teams in the redzone (between the goal line and the 20-yard-line). Let's not get carried away though, that was last season. Offensively, the Ravens are looking up with wideouts Marlon Brown and Breshad Perriman threatening to score in scoring territory. 21 2015 Baltimore, 28 2010 Ravens

Final Score: 21 2015 Baltimore, 28 2010 Ravens

Notable Matchups

Ed Reed vs. Steve Smith Sr
Age is nothing but a number for this couple. Fourth of July fireworks light the sky whenever these two forces meet.

Anquan Boldin vs. Secondary
Shipped to San Francisco after helping the team win the Super Bowl, a bitter Boldin returns to Baltimore -- the one-and-only team the receiver failed to register 1,000 receiving yards with.

The irate beast will not only try to devour former teammates Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb, but also newly-acquired corner Kyle Arrington, who's still probably haunted by these memories from the 2012 AFC Championship Game.

Ray Rice vs. Justin Forsett
Rice returns to Baltimore. Only for this reenactment.

Marc Trestman vs. Cam Cameron
Cam Cameron saw Flacco play one of the quarterback's most prolific and efficient seasons of his career. Trestman is getting a Flacco who thrived under Gary Kubiak in 2014. This one should be fun to watch.

Honorable mentions: Ray Lewis vs. C.J. Mosley, Derrick Mason vs. Lardarius Webb, Haloti Ngata vs. Ravens Offensive Line
