    I know it's very early in the day, as the early games are just wrapping up. However, I am super anxious for the game to start because I want to see how the Pats rebound from the dismal performance (at least offensively and ST) last week. Both teams are coming off a loss last week, in fact, and they both boast incredible records after a loss (Pats 27-3 after a loss since 2003). This is the whole unstoppable force vs. the immovable object thing, I guess.

    We're in for a really good game tonight that may very well come down to the last team with the ball, the team that makes the least costly mistakes, or both. The Pats MUST win the battle in the trenches. That's important during every game, but especially against a big and physical team like the Ravens. Establishing the run and maintaining balance, two things they've emphasized in the young season, become so much more important for a game like this one.

    At any rate and as PATSNUTme usually says . . .

    It's official.

    I was going ot post it at 4:30 AM but it probably would not be early enough for some.:D

    Please don't start other threads about tonight's game before or during the game, it save a lot of merging and deleting.

    Torrey smith is back from his brother's funeral and is going to play. Huge emotional game and lift which the pats have to overcome.

    Very excited for this game! I think we will play well tonight.. no idea if that results in a W or L. As a few others have said a loss wouldn't be the end of the world. Just turn off your tv and radio for the week and everything will be fine. As we have all witnessed so far this season this league is WIDE open... and yes our division stinks so we have going for us (which is nice). But of course.. I expect to win! ;)

    I for one,am expecting about a 12 point loss so I won't be suicidal if the team loses.

    In fact I would be surprised to see a 3 point loss or less but absolutely thrilled to see a 1 point win.

    1-2 would not be a big deal and won't end the season.

    I hope I paid you tribute enough in my original post. Nobody does it better than you. I have just been really anxious for this game . . . hope I didn't encroach on your territory.

    Pretty amazing that he's playing; honoring the kid brother.

    Was the funeral today? I thought the accident happened just last night.

    hopefully lloyd and mankins are ready to go. reiss said both were out on the field early being looked at by trainers. could be a long night if they are missing for the game.

    This game will tell us more about the defense, even if they lose by a lot.

    Reiss on Twittah:

    We'll see what it means, but offensive coordinator gave a high-five to Brandon Lloyd and then a thumb-up to head trainer Jim Whalen.

    Josh McDaniels, Brandon Lloyd and Harold Nash had a little meeting after Lloyd's workout. Big smile from McDaniels at end of it.

    I've been cautiously optimistic about the defense until this game. I want to see if what we saw in the first two weeks is real or just a product of someone who is practically a rookie in week one and another player who is overrated and only started because the starter went down in week two.

    Flacco is very good, if not elite, and he's got some weapons to play with. Rice presents a dual threat. The WR's are fast and one extremely physical. And Pitta has been doing his best imitation of Gronk in their offense. Oh yeah, this is the true barometer.

    I still wonder what it could have been that he tweaked.

    Evan Silva of Rotoworld predicts that this game may be the breakout game from Lloyd.

    I posted a thread before week 1 which had Silva predicting a top Ridley performance and he was right then,hopefully he is 2 for 2 by the end of tonight's game.
