At Stripe Hype, we try to stay close to the Bengals and other NFL news, but, this week, everybody wants our Superbowl picks. I’ve thought a lot about mine and I’m giving it to the Ravens. I say they’ll get four field goals and two touchdowns, probably one on defense. The 49ers will get just one touchdown and three field goals, probably missing one.
Looking at that, maybe I”m giving too much to the Ravens’ defense. And maybe I”m not giving Colin Kaepernick his due. That’s where the game will be won or lost, the Raven defense vs. the 49er offense. When the Ravens have the ball, it might be time to get up and go get a refill.
I say this because I’ve seen the Raven play some horrible offense. To me, they’re still the Cleveland Browns in prettier uniforms. Their downfield game might get them close, but within range, I’m not sure they’ve proven to me that they won’t have to settle for 3.
