Baltimore Ravens (+2) @ New York Jets
Monday, September 13th
7:00 ET, New Meadowlands Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ

Ravens Notes: Once upon a time, the Ravens only really had one receiver of any note in the form of WR Derrick Mason. This is a problem that has plagued this team for a number of years, but certainly won't be the case in 2010. The additions of WR TJ Houshmanzadeh and WR Anquan Boldin were absolutely key. QB Joe Flacco is going to be expected to throw for at least 4,000 yards this year. Don't forget about the rushing game for this team, either. RB Ray Rice and RB Willis McGahee are fantastic, and both are capable of running for 1,000 yards this year, especially if one or the other gets hurt. Is 6,500 yards out of the question for this offense? We certainly don't think so. If that's the case, the defense for the Ravens is going be all that much more fun to watch. Though there are a lot of injuries to deal with in Baltimore, LB Ray Lewis and SS Ed Reed are still floating around in purple and black, and they simply won't let this team slack off. There will be no excuse for injuries to DB Dominique Foxworth and LB Sergio Kindle.

Jets Notes: What an interesting offseason this one was for the Jets! New York added some real key pieces to the puzzle, especially in the secondary. DB Antonio Cromartie was picked up from the San Diego Chargers, while rookie DB Kyle Wilson was drafted out of Boise State. The men in green had to wonder whether both men were going to be forced to start this year or not. DB Darrelle Revis held out through the entire preseason and only finally reported to camp this week. Revis Island will be where one of the Ravens receivers finds themselves in this game. On the other side of the ball, the entire rushing game has changed. RB Thomas Jones and RB Leon Washington are both gone, and in their places will be future Hall of Famer RB LaDainian Tomlinson and RB Shonn Greene. Greene made a real name for himself last year for the Jets in the playoffs in place of the injured Washington, and many think he can carry the load this season for the J-E-T-S. Still, QB Mark Sanchez is going to have to pick up the slack at the QB position this year, as another season anywhere near 20 INTs is going to be unacceptable.

The Final Word: If there's a team that should be able to figure out the Rex Ryan defense, it should be the one that he used to coach. Are the Jets a talented enough team to win this game? Absolutely. However, this is a special, special Baltimore team this year, and we think its season starts with a smash mouth 'W'.

Prediction: Ravens 20 – Jets 13
