Four predictions for Ravens-Colts Week 2 preseason game

The Baltimore Ravens are set to play in their third preseason game on Monday night Womens Hayden Hurst Jersey , and they will face the Indianapolis Colts in the final game of Week two. Below are four predictions for this game. 1. Joe Flacco throws two touchdownsBaltimore’s first-team offense looked sharp on their lone drive against the Rams in week one. Joe Flacco led the Ravens’ offense on a 10-play, 70-yard drive that ended in a Patrick Ricard touchdown. Flacco and the rest of the projected starters will likely play at least two or three drives, and he will light up the night. 2. Zach Sieler and Patrick Ricard each record a sackSieler is in a tight competition along the defensive line to earn a roster spot, and he had a fantastic showing in Week one. He was consistently in the backfield as he recorded one sack and played a part in stopping the run. Sieler will record a sack against the Colts’ shaky offensive line. Patrick Ricard has turned heads with back-to-back strong showings in the preseason. He is making an impact offensively, but it his defensive performances that have been more impressive. Ricard has shown the ability to shed blocks and stop running backs in the backfield. Against the Colts, he will record a sack en route to continuing to cement himself as a rotational player along the defensive line. 3. Jaleel Scott catches a touchdown passBaltimore selected two wide receivers in the 2018 NFL Draft Cheap Marshal Yanda Jersey , Jaleel Scott and Jordan Lasley, and they have struggled immensely thus far in the preseason. Both have struggled with creating separation and drops. Scott will flash against the Colts and remind the Ravens why they selected him. He is a big, physical wide receiver who excels in the red zone. 4. Kamalei Correa will have another quiet nightComing off of his monster Hall of Fame Game showing, Correa disappointed against the Rams. In week two of the preseason, he will continue to struggle. Correa has been receiving reps at inside and outside linebacker, but he will fail to build his case for a roster spot. Correa was a non-factor against better competition Cheap Matt Skura Jersey , and that will continue on Monday night.
