Prediction Friday Returns: Ravens vs. Chiefs


We’re cracking open the bubbly. And not the cheap stuff either.

This champagne comes all the way from French Lick, Indiana.

Only the best for my patrons.

We’re celebrating because you have made it to our first true, football Prediction Friday of the late summer.

If you are new around here, Prediction Friday is simple. It’s a fiesta and party all wrapped into one.

Basically, the deal is this: Each Friday we share our predictions for the upcoming Ravens game. The one who is closest to the score gets a free drink chip and the adoration of his barkeep and fellow patrons for a full week.

(Neither is worth anything, but this is a fake bar people. What do you expect?)

If you hit it straight on, it’s a free bar tab for a week and your name in Christmas lights over the sports mural on the front wall.

The tiebreaker – if we need one – is if you correctly select the hero of the game (decided at my discretion to give me a better chance of winning).

But since this is the very special week one, we have even more fun and games on tap (bad bar pun). I also need your prediction for the Ravens’ season record.

I’ll keep them and get back to you in January. Last year, almost no one had them over .500. My guess is that changes today. We'll have this run all weekend, and you can make your prediction up until kickoff.

OK, here is my entry: I say the Ravens win 23-6. Todd Heap catches two TDs for hero of the game.

And the Ravens go 11-5 in 2009.

Your turn.

i say ravens win 38-3 and agree that heap catches two touchdowns. also ED(Greet em with a pick)REED gets two interceptions, and ravens go 14-2. Ravens look very good on all three sides Offense, Defense, and Special teams.

Season record- 13-3

Ravens 34 Chiefs 3

Hero-Ray Rice 2TD's

Ravens 27, Chiefs 3

Ed Reed

Willis gets the first TD of the year for the Ravens and shines with Rice. Willis is a hero for today. Ravens 11-5 for the season. They make the playoffs by beeting the steelers in December.

Ravens 34-KC 7
Haloti Ngata: A sack, caused fumble, INT FOR TD
11-5 They take one from the Chargers next week, get over the Colts mystique at home.

Gimme a large coffee Dan, and a pint of that purple kool-aid stuff. I can't imagine anything but a blow out Sunday. Hope I'm not wrong.

Ravens - 34

Also confused by the amount of people that are picking Ngata with an pick 6. If anyone does that, its Ed.

26-17 Ravens

Ray Rice

10-6 for the season...the schedule is really hard...we have to play every predicted playoff team in the AFC and 3 of the 6 favorites in the NFC. However, I do think they are really good and could go 14-2...I just don't think it will happen...next year though. :)

Ray Rice and Terrell Suggs score TDs.

Ravens 20, Chiefs 6

All the people predicting 30+ points are forgetting that once we get up by a couple scores, we're almost certainly just going to run run run the ball until the game is over. There's no need for Cam Cameron to call a bombs-away game.

Oh, I forgot --- the hero will be Terrell Suggs, who should notch a couple of sacks against that woeful Chiefs O-Line.

Final Ravens record: 11-5 (but we'll be a better team than last year --- I just think the schedule's tougher)

Ravens 56 Chiefs -2. Yes, the Chiefs are so bad that they will FIND a way to lose 2 points.

Flacco passes for over 400 yards

19-0 'nuff said

Chiefs 20 Ravens 17

Brandon Flowers

Ravens 20 Chiefs 13... hero Dwan Landry....season record 11-5.

Ravens 33-14
Season 12-4
Hero Ray Rice

Ravens 38 Chiefs 0
Ray Rice
13-3
Super Bowl Champions

Ravens 27 Chiefs 0

Ray Rice will have a great game;
the D-line shuts down LJ and the Chiefs' offense

13-3 for the year

Seems like a lot of readers have the same general idea; hope we're all right!

Dan--OOPS, I forgot to include the Ravens' final season record: 12-4.

This is just another pre-season game to tune up for the long trip to the Chargers next week when the tough season really begins for the Ravens.

Ravens win easy while playing everyone late and resting our top players.

Ravens 31
Chiefs 6
Ray Rice
9-7
