Fresh off a tough divisional loss, the Ravens look to rebound against the Colts in Week 9. The staff of Baltimore Beatdown gives some of their bold predictions for Sunday’s matchup of two 5-2 teams in Indianapolis.
Each team eclipses 400 yards of offense. WR Marquise “Hollywood” Brown bounces back with two touchdowns.
After a one-catch performance against the Steelers, Marquise Brown is involved early and often this Sunday. He finishes the game with five or more receptions and posts a season-high mark in receiving yards. On the other side of the ball, rookie ILB Malik Harrison steps up in a big way filling in for the injured L.J. Fort. Harrison does his best Marlon Humphrey impression and forces a key turnover in the second half to swing the momentum of the game in Baltimore’s favor.
The Ravens struggle on offense against a very-tough defense of the Colts, so it will be up to Baltimore’s defense to generate this win. Fortunately for them, they are against Phillip Rivers, who is about 85% washed at this point. The defense will struggle due to all many players missing practice in relation to Humphrey testing positive for COVID-19, but I still predict at least a three-turnover game.
WR Dez Bryant scores a touchdown in his first game with the Ravens and his first game since 2017. Rookie RB J.K. Dobbins eclipses 100 yards on the ground for the second week in a row, securing his spot as the team’s top back going forward. Defensively, Patrick Queen has one of his best performances with his first interception as well as a sack on Rivers.
