between 1-0 teams [url=http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/hats-cheap]Baltimore Ravens Hats[/url] , who has the best opportunity to remain unbeaten? Ravens at BengalsThursday Night Football has become notorious for lower quality due to the strain a short week of preparation places on both teams. Baltimore and Cincinnati split their season series in 2017, with both road teams leaving with a win. The Ravens are well positioned to continue the trend, coming off a balanced performance in Week 1 against the Bills. While the Bengals are a more talented and seasoned team than Buffalo, Baltimore’s upgraded receivers have brought renewed hope to the offensive effort and the defense displayed no signs of straying from the franchise’s signature dominance. The Bengals will need to get off to a hotter start than they did in Indianapolis, as a 17 point fourth quarter comeback is far less attainable against a stout defense. Eagles at BuccaneersThe Eagles escaped a sour ending to their banner raising home opener, stopping the Falcons on the goal line with time expiring in the fourth quarter. Carson Wentz has still not been cleared for contact, making Nick Foles the confirmed starter for Week 2. Against Atlanta, Foles threw zero touchdowns, averaged just 3.44 yards per pass and finished with a passer rating of 50.7, a far cry from his Super Bowl MVP performance when he threw three touchdown passes and recorded a 106.1 passer rating. Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the surprise of Week 1, defeating the New Orleans Saints in Louisiana. Given Fitzpatrick’s track record [url=http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/hoodie-cheap]Baltimore Ravens Hoodie[/url] , it is still likely that he will follow up his stellar Week 1 with a flat line on Sunday. With uncertainty surrounding Philadelphia and more tape needed before declaring the Buccaneers opening performance more than a fluke, this match up is a toss up. Dolphins at JetsThe Dolphins survived hours of weather delays to win what became the longest game in NFL history when they defeated the Tennessee Titans. Frank Gore and Kenyan Drake proved to be a potent running back duo in Week 1, and Kenny Stills impressed with 106 receiving yards and two touchdowns on Sunday. However, Ryan Tannehill threw two interceptions in his first game since 2016. Sam Darnold’s NFL debut started in disaster, with an immediate pick-six, but he finished the night with a 116.8 passer rating and a road win over the Lions. If Isaiah Crowell can replicate his strong showing (102 rushing yards and two touchdowns) and the Jets receivers can build on their success after catching 76.2 percent of passes in Week 1, then New York is in a good spot to come away with a divisional victory and a 2-0 start. Vikings at Packers Aaron Rodgers added another chapter to his folklore on Sunday night, returning from a knee injury to lead the Packers on a 21-3 run in the fourth quarter to defeat the Bears in Green Bay. And while the organization is being cautious about his injury, the Vikings are planning to face the future Hall of Famer in Week 2. His knee will be a concern, but given his comeback performance against Chicago, Rodgers should still be able to be highly effective on Sunday. Kirk Cousins will have the chance to prove himself against top tier talent in his first divisional contest [url=http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/customized-cheap]Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys[/url] , after handing Jimmy Garoppolo his first NFL loss. But if Rodgers can continue his successful rapport with Randall Cobb and Davante Adams, the Packers have the chance to gain a strong hold on NFC North early with back-to-back divisional wins. Patriots at JaguarsIn a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship game, the Patriots travel to Jacksonville to face off against Blake Bortles and Jalen Ramsey. New England recently signed receivers Corey Coleman and Bennie Fowler in their latest attempt to fill the void left by Julian Edelman’s suspension. Jacksonville is also facing a potential gap on offense, as Leonard Fournette has been held of out practices this week after injuring his hamstring against the Giants, and his status is not yet clear for Week 2. While the Jaguars imposing defense will surely look to take advantage of Tom Brady’s lack of offensive weapons, it will still be no easy task to shut down the connection between Brady and Rob Gronkowski. If the Jaguars can make adjustments from their playoff loss and secure a victory against the AFC’s most imposing team, it could prove pivotal in propelling Jacksonville to another level.Poll: Should the Ravens keep Robert Griffin III on the 53-man roster? Back in early April, the Baltimore Ravens signed Robert Griffin III. I ran a poll on that day asking you, the readers of Baltimore Beatdown, if you liked or disliked the signing. Most fans either liked the signing or felt indifferent.Instant Reaction: Ravens sign Robert Griffin IIINow, earlier today [url=http://www.baltimoreravensteamauthentic.com/mark-andrews-jersey]Authentic Mark Andrews Jersey[/url] , the Ravens decided not to play Robert Griffin III against the Washington Redskins.There has been a report indicating multiple teams are interested in the former second overall pick. There’s also speculation the Ravens are keeping him on the final 53-man roster. So, what a better way to decide than the readers of Baltimore Beatdown voting on the issue?Reasons for keeping RGIIIThe Ravens don’t want Lamar Jackson on the field for 2018. They know he is a work-in-progress, even with his impressive skill-set and flash. He’s the future and if Joe Flacco suffers an injury they don’t want the rookie on the field. Griffin III gives them a capable backup spot and another mentor for Jackson to work with. The combination of Flacco, Griffin III and James Urban all coaching, grooming and mentoring the young star will provide areas of expertise spanning the totality of the game. Keeping RGIII sacrifices a depth-player elsewhere, namely wide receiver, defensive line or a fifth tight end, but building towards the future could be worth it in their eyes.— Kyle BarberReasons why the Ravens are better off without RGIIIFirst off, the Ravens have only rostered two quarterbacks for nine consecutive years; it does not make much sense to keep three this year at the expense of depth at another needy position, especially when they have two first rounders in Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson available. Perhaps the main reason to move on from Griffin is the fact that he is not much better, if better at all [url=http://www.baltimoreravensteamauthentic.com/maurice-canady-jersey]Authentic Maurice Canady Jersey[/url] , than Jackson currently. Rob has played in only five regular season games since 2014 and only a half against NFL caliber players this preseason. In his outing against real competition, Griffin struggled greatly with accuracy. Strategically, the Ravens are best off with Lamar as their starting quarterback as soon as possible from a salary cap management standpoint. Keeping Griffin only hinders Jackson’s development from a repetitions standpoint both in practice and game action if necessary. The days of first round quarterbacks learning on the sidelines are long gone in the modern NFL, rookie quarterbacks often play early and thrive these days. Ultimately, flipping Griffin for a mid-round draft pick would be a stroke of genius in both the short- and long-term for this franchise. — Vasilis LericosNow, for you to decide.
