The Ravens and Colts offenses have been red-hot lately. Indianapolis (2-2) has the top-ranked offense in the NFL, and the Ravens (3-1) are climbing the charts after a 38-10 victory over the Panthers last week. The teams have scored a combined 144 points the last two weeks. "This is probably the ...

Reed’s Curious Ravens - Colts Prediction Conventional NFL analysts usually try to leave relationships and feelings aside, but when has Ed Reed ever been conventional? While making predictions for the Ravens - Colts showdown on “Inside the NFL,” Reed made his criteria for his pick clear: connections and friendships. Oh, well he was drafted by the Ravens and enjoyed a (potentially) Hall of Fame career in Baltimore, so he picked the Ravens . Riiiiiight? Nope. Reed feels a loyalty to Colts receiver Reggie Wayne after they were roommates at the University of Miami. Plus, Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano has been a father-figure to Reed, again dating back to his college days as well as in Baltimore. But that doesn’t mean he picked the Colts either, citing his “Baltimore guys” as the reason. So, Reed took the easy way out. His official prediction of what may be the best NFL matchup of the week is … a tie. “What?!” Boomer Esiason reacted. “You said a tie!” “I did,” Reed said, standing his ground. “It’s embarrassing,” Esiason shot back. The thing is, if Reed is going to make a prediction based on loyalties, how could the Ravens NOT get his pick? C’mon, man! Eh, oh well. I’m over it. For the record, Reed only picked seven of last week’s 11 matchups correctly. He’s 36-25 on the year so far. Not horrible, not great. For predictions based on what might actually happen on the field, let’s move on … Week 5: Ravens vs . Colts Picks Here we go! The Colts ’ No. 1 offense versus the Ravens ’ No. 2 defense (in points per game). Most experts are expecting an offensive shootout, but let’s not forget the Colts (2-2) have played against four defenses that are in the bottom half of the league in yards allowed per game, including Denver (No. 27), Philadelphia (No. 28) and Jacksonville (No. 32). Even with concerns in the secondary, the Ravens defense will give quarterback Andrew Luck his biggest test of the season to date. Nonetheless, 24 of the 35 pundits below believe Luck and the Colts will come away victorious. Baltimore Sun : 5 of 7 pick Colts Jeff Zrebiec ( Colts 31, Ravens 20): “The Ravens' new-look offense has made nice strides, but it still isn't yet equipped to win a shootout against Andrew Luck. It's much harder to overcome secondary breakdowns against good teams on the road.” Jon Meoli ( Colts 35, Ravens 24): “This game gives me pause because the Colts haven't really beaten anyone, but they can move the ball as well as any team in the league and will expose the Ravens' underperforming secondary.” ESPN.com : 8 of 13 pick Colts Yahoo! Sports : 2 of 2 pick Colts NFL.com (Elliot Harrison): Colts 27, Ravens 24 “This is certainly one of the better games on the Week 5 docket. The Ravens are really on a roll, with their only loss this season coming in Week 1 to the Bengals -- arguably the best team in the NFL. Meanwhile, the Colts have rebounded quite neatly from their 0-2 start, with Andrew Luck playing red-hot football. Consider his stat line from the past two weeks: 763 passing yards, eight touchdown passes, one interception and a combined passer rating of 132.4. Can Joe Flacco stay with Luck in Indy? He'll have to, if a) some combination of Bernard Pierce , Justin Forsett , Lorenzo Taliaferro and Earnest Byner can't get it done on the ground, or b) Baltimore's pass defense – which ranks 24th in the NFL (260.2 passing yards allowed per game) – falters against the league's top-ranked passing attack.” CBSSports.com : 5 of 8 pick Colts Pete Prisco: Colts 31, Ravens 30 “This one features two 3-1 teams clicking on offense [Note: Colts are actually 2-2]. Andrew Luck is having an MVP start, but the Ravens are much improved on offense. Look for Indianapolis to play up-tempo to keep the Ravens off-balance. Luck finds a way to win it late.” ProFootballTalk.com : 2 of 2 pick Colts Mike Florio: Colts 24, Ravens 21 “Thirty years after the Colts bolted from Baltimore, Baltimore’s current team looks to settle the score. And Indy’s coach used to work for the Ravens . And Baltimore’s defense could have a hard time against some decisive, quick-strike passing from Andrew Luck. And the Indy crowd will be extra loud, thanks to John Harbaugh’s joke that they pipe in crowd noise.” Michael David Smith: Colts 31, Ravens 28 “Andrew Luck and Joe Flacco both put up big numbers last week, and I think they can both have big numbers this week as well. Look for Luck’s numbers to be a big bigger and the Colts to win a high-scoring game.” SportingNews.com (Vinnie Iyer): Colts 27, Ravens 24 “The Ravens have somewhat eased Baltimore’s NFL pain of the Colts leaving them with two Super Bowl titles in their short existence. Time also has helped heal wounds. There always will be Johnny U., but the Colts ’ identity now belongs in Indianapolis, thanks to Peyton Manning and now Andrew Luck. Luck has Manning’s new-school mind and Unitas’ old-school toughness. Joe Flacco will keep it interesting, but Indy will have a little more gas to fly past the Ravens late.” FoxSports.com (Peter Schrager): Ravens 33, Colts 24 “The Ravens are 3-0 since the second Ray Rice tape was made public, and John Harbaugh’s team played its best football of the year Sunday vs . the Panthers. Andrew Luck has put up big numbers against struggling defenses in back-to-back weeks, but I don’t see him doing the same to this Ravens D. Elvis Dumervil looked rejuvenated last weekend, and both Terrell Suggs and rookie C.J. Mosley had their best games to date. Indy always had Baltimore’s number when Peyton Manning was under center. Flacco has Luck’s. Give me the Ravens on the road.” Does Baltimore Have Two Best Coaches In Country? Plenty of Ravens were on hand for the Orioles’ 12-3 dismantling of the Detroit Tigers last night in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. That includes defensive lineman Brandon Williams , who was clearly amped up in his Instagram video below (mobile users tap “View in browser.”) Congrats to the O’s, who blew the game open in the eighth inning with eight runs. That’s one down, and 10 to go. Blogger Drew Forrester walked away from the game feeling like Charm City is lucky to have two of the best coaches in the country in Buck Showalter and John Harbaugh. "Does any other city in America have two coaches of the quality and caliber of Showalter and John Harbaugh?" Drew asked. “I've been trying to think of sports cities in the U.S. and who coaches their specific teams, and I don't think any other town in the country can match our two guys. “I'm not willing to rubber stamp Baltimore as " King of the Coaches " without some debate or suggestions from you all. That's what we do at #DMD. Go ahead, tell me why Baltimore isn't #1. I think our combination of Harbaugh and Showalter is unmatched around the country. Tell me I'm wrong. And then name names.” Projections Based On First Quarter How will the Ravens ’ key numbers from the first quarter of the season translate to the full 16-game slate? CSNBaltimore.com’s Bo Smolka projects some stats if the Ravens continue on its current pace: Team record: 3-1 Projects to: 12-4 Justin Forsett: 255 rushing yards Projects to: 1,020 rushing yards Ravens offense: 3 sacks allowed Projects to: 12 sacks allowed Steve Smith: 25 catches, 429 yards Projects to: 100 catches, 1,716 yards Ravens defense: 1 interception Projects to: 4 interceptions Quick Hits Dean Pees defense Matt Elam . "Last week, I thought Matt Elam played real well," Pees said. "We put him in the slot and nickel with very few reps against a good quarterback. I don't know if you guys saw the same film I saw, but there were two passes I don't know who would've defended them. He just put it on the money. Sometimes you got to say, 'Hey, that's the way it was.' We do a lot of stuff, and to throw a guy in a new position and learn it overnight, that's tough to do. My hat's off to Matt ." [ESPN] Despite notching a half-sack against the Panthers Sunday, Suggs doesn’t feel his sack drought has come to an end. [ESPN] Mike Preston: Quarterback Joe Flacco is in a good place right now. [The Baltimore Sun] The Ravens are paying wide receiver Deonte Thompson an upgraded practice squad salary of $17,000. [The Baltimore Sun] The Ravens are regaining their physical identity . [ESPN] Forsett is leading the NFL in rushing average , becoming one of the better stories during the first month of the season. "When you first saw him come out here, it’s like, 'Whoa, he’s good.' He’s better than his reputation," Harbaugh said. "He’s underrated. You could see that right away. [He] had such a great feel for the offense. But I don’t know if I really could have guessed that he’d break tackles like he does. He’s really doing a great job in yards after the hit. That has been a strength, and you wouldn’t assume that just looking at him."

John Harbaugh Snubbed In NFL Coaches Ranking? In my book, John Harbaugh is easily a top-five NFL head coach, despite last season’s 5-11 finish. The folks at USA Today see it slightly differently, however, ranking Harbaugh No. 7 in their head coaches list behind the Patriots’ Bill Belichick, Seahawks’ Pete Carroll, Cardinals’ Bruce Arians, Vikings’ Mike Zimmer, Saints’ Sean Payton and Steelers’ Mike Tomlin, respectively. Harbaugh was “ snubbed ,” says Baltimore Beatdown’s Kyle P. Barber. On one hand, you have to give respect to each of the coaches ranked ahead of Harbaugh. Each has an impressive resume. And it’d be tough to argue against Belichick as the top dog seeing as he has four Super Bowl rings as a head coach and … well, do you even need to argue more? The man has won FOUR Lombardi Trophies. On the other hand, the list is all a matter of opinion and one could easily argue that Harbaugh should be ranked as high as No. 2. The same argument that folks use to prove quarterback Joe Flacco is elite is the same argument for Harbaugh: postseason wins. Since the two arrived in Baltimore together in 2008, the Ravens have the most playoff wins in the league with 10. The Patriots and Seahawks are tied for second place with eight. Harbaugh has led his team to three AFC title games and lifted the Lombardi Trophy after his Super Bowl XLVII victory. Other than Belichick, nobody in the top six of this list has more Super Bowl wins than Harbaugh, and he is the only head coach in NFL history to win a playoff game in six of his first seven seasons. “John Harbaugh has done the best possible job in the hardest division,” wrote Barber. “The AFC North has three established franchise quarterbacks. [It’s] the most difficult road to the playoffs when playing the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals twice in a season.” Below is USA Today’s write-up on the top-seven coaches. Where do you think Harbaugh ranks? 1. Bill Belichick, Patriots “Belichick is the greatest coach in NFL history. It’s not even debatable at this point. Other coaches have had bigger impacts on the game thanks to innovative schemes. … Schemes grow old and get replaced by the next big thing. The game is constantly evolving, and, somehow, Belichick always seems to be ahead of the evolutionary curve.” 2. Pete Carroll, Seahawks “No team plays harder than the Seahawks. … His overly-enthusiastic approach wasn’t supposed to work in the NFL, but it’s hard to argue with the results. The Seahawks have made the playoffs five times in Carroll’s six years as head coach.” 3. Bruce Arians, Cardinals “Is there a more aggressive coach in the league? Arians isn’t jumping on the dink-and-dunk trend most NFL offenses are now favoring. The Cardinals offense is going to attack defenses downfield and do it relentlessly. And that mindset has carried over to the defense. No team captures the personality of its coach more than Arizona. Arians also produces results. His teams have never won fewer than nine games, and that includes his 12-game stint as the Colts interim coach, when Indianapolis went 9-3.” 4. Mike Zimmer, Vikings “Zimmer is the most creative defensive play-caller in the league. And more importantly, he knows how to develop young talent.” 5. Sean Payton, Saints “There’s no offensive coach in the NFL better at creating favorable match-ups than Payton. That’s how the Saints offense remains in the top-half of the league without elite talent at the receiver position. While most other quarterbacks see their production fall off when their top targets go down, Drew Brees just keeps putting up 4,000-yard seasons.” 6. Mike Tomlin, Steelers “Tomlin might not be as hands-on when it comes the X’s and O’s as some other coaches on this list, but his players always play hard for him. And he’s done a good job handling his assistants. When he was given the job, Tomlin was smart enough to leave Dick LeBeau in charge of the defense instead of installing his own scheme. And the unpopular hire of Todd Haley has turned out to be a brilliant move.” 7. John Harbaugh, Ravens “Harbaugh deserves a pass for last year’s debacle. The Ravens sent an inordinate number of players to IR. It was only the second time the Ravens missed the playoffs in Harbaugh’s eight years in charge.” Joe Flacco Trending Friday If you’re a Ravens fan, Twitter was a fun place to be on Friday. That’s because the @NFL account started a #FlaccoFriday trend, and @ Ravens , along with thousands of fans, joined in. The Ravens franchise quarterback has been on the sideline since November, so it was nice to be reminded of his big arm and sweet postseason resume. Only 2 QBs in NFL history have thrown 11 TDs & 0 INT in a single postseason: Joe Montana & Joe Flacco. #FlaccoFriday pic.twitter.com/CDa0qip1Un — NFL (@NFL) May 28, 2016 Joe Flacco on the move...

Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro has always shown huge potential when he’s on the field. But there’s ability, and then there’s availability. Campanaro has been plagued by injuries since he was drafted in the seventh round of 2014. A hamstring injury hampered his rookie season, and he landed on injured reserve last year with a herniated disc. He missed the first week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) last week with a calf strain. “Third-year wide receiver Michael Campanaro will have a difficult time making the Ravens in 2016 if he does not stay healthy. He is not off to a good start,” wrote CSNMidAtlantic.com’s Clifton Brown. “Campanaro could help the Ravens as a returner, but so can [Keenan] Reynolds and [Kaelin] Clay. The Ravens have been waiting for Campanaro to show he can remain healthy. If that does not happen during training camp, it might be too late.” For the record, Harbaugh doesn’t seem to have lost faith in Campanaro. There’s still plenty of time this summer to prove he can stay on the field. “I’ve just never seen a guy work as hard as this guy has worked in the last year and a half,” Harbaugh said Thursday. “There will be a time he will get past this stuff. This stuff will stop happening and hopefully it’s training camp, and that’s what we’re hoping for him. The guy works tremendously hard and he was in phenomenal shape, and we’re still expecting really good things from him.” So Far, So Good For Webb’s Transition Media got its first glimpse at Lardarius Webb ’s transition from cornerback to safety during OTAs last week. So far, so good, says Brown in the video below. There are three things that Brown believes Webb has going for him: 1) He’s an eight-year veteran with plenty of experience in the secondary, which bodes well for a position switch. 2) He played safety in college, so he’s not completely new to the role. 3) He has Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle playing next to him to help guide the way.

Perriman’s Father Is Improving What a relief it is to see tweets from wide receiver Breshad Perriman indicating that his father’s health is improving as he continues his recovery from a stroke suffered earlier this month. We hope this is the beginning of a much better year for Perriman, who had a rough time both on and off the field recently. In addition to the health scare with his father, Perriman lost his good friend and Ravens cornerback Tray Walker in a motorcycle accident. He also didn’t play his rookie year because of a knee injury. But his knee looks 100 percent healthy now and his father is on the up and up. I couldn’t be happier for Perriman and hope the string of good news continues. My Ol boy is starting chapter 2 today! He's leaving the hospital and on his way to a rehab center. Full recovery coming soon!! #sup — Breshad Perriman (@B_Perriman11) May 27, 2016 Still a long road ahead of him but with faith and prayers he will make a full recovery in no time. #letsworkpops #hardbody — Breshad Perriman (@B_Perriman11) May 27, 2016 Not A Bad Day For Keenan Reynolds What a weekend for sixth-round rookie Keenan Reynolds.
