Ravens vs Bills 

This game could be an indicator of Baltimore’s health. The Ravens have been owned by the Bengals, as of late. A dominating performance could give the Ravens a lift and become a slight warning for the division.

Joe Flacco looks healthy again. With the offense under his direction, the Ravens could make some noise. Mike Wallace is going to stretch the Buffalo defense and cause some trouble. During the preseason, Flacco tested out his new weapon quite often. The Ravens are trying a quick-strike approach, this year. Wallace has the speed to deliver.

This game will be the NFL’s introduction to the Wallace-Flacco hookup. They have a lot to prove.

Terrell Suggs will definitely bring some hard knocks. He’s back and looks fit. Shedding weight and putting on muscle will make a big difference. The Ravens upgraded their defense and look much faster. Lardarius Webb and Eric Weddle are looking sharp in the secondary.

Tyrod Taylor and the Bills are ready to make a move. Buffalo’s offense should be much better. Taylor has been working to improve his connections over the middle of the field.

Defensively, the Bills are in a tizzy. Starting defensive tackle Marcell Dareus checked into a rehab facility, and will miss the first four games. Another player violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

Baltimore’s veteran leadership has a lot to prove, after going 5-11 last season. This may be the game to make a statement.
