So how about that last game? And how about that game thread!

If they're gonna win, let's wash it down with sweet, sweet (salty) Harbaugh tears. Here's to Bill pulling out the bag of tricks and some secret, rulebook approved formations to drive Baltimore nuts and send them packing with the loss.

The Patriots are 7 point underdogs at home which is the largest point spread for a visiting opponent in Foxboro since the Rams in 2001.
Ravens seem like easy money here. Pats getting historical respect.

I must be hallucinating, I thought there were more posts in this thread. Tough for me to be any more impressed by BB than I already am but if he keeps this close it will be incredible. I think this is a terrible match up for the Pats.

Harry is playing, then?


From Masslive:

There was a bit of good news for the Patriots offense though, as N’Keal Harry has cleared the concussion protocol and will return for the first time since the 49ers game. Lawrence Guy is also back in the middle of the defensive line, and though he’s nursing two injuries, feature back Damien Harris was deemed good to go

How is the Bal run D?

This game is gonna look like a game from the 1900s before the forward pass was legal
One of the best.

This matchup sucks out loud for the Pats. They won’t be able to run on BAL the way they have in their other solid performances this year. Also, BAL’s running game isn’t what it was last season because their two best OL are gone (Yanda retired and Stanley suffered a brutal ankle injury a few weeks ago), but the Pats front seven will get eaten alive.

New look D tonight:

Uche worked at ILB with the backups. Dugger in the starting unit could be interesting.
Lots of lighter bodies in the box than last year with Phillips, Dugger, and Terez Hall with hopefully Uche carving out a bigger role.

I’m strangely confident about tonight. Ravens O line isn’t what it was last year and blitz has given Jackson issues. If the D can get them into 2nd and 3rd and long, it plays into what the Pats do well. Offensively, pass to set up the run. Get Cam into a flow early. Don’t turn the ball over.

Gusty winds could make Cam's ordinary passing inaccuracy truly treacherous for the Pats tonight.
