Will the Patiots abandon the run again? I think it depends on the way the Ravens choose to attack the game, but I think it's likely. Baltimore is very good against the run, and poor against the pass. Only if Baltimore sells out to stop the pass will the Patriots run the ball regularly (other than to set up play-action). Will the New England D stomp all over the Ravens offense? I think so. I think they will force the Ravens to beat them through the air, which would have been unlikely enough with McNair under center.The Ravens will not beat the Patriots through the air. How much of a role will special teams play? I don't know, but I sure like typing! What do you think?
