Rob Parker: “On paper you look at the Ravens and say, ‘man, FINALLY, Lamar with the contract in his back pocket isn't an issue anymore, he’s healthy – not an issue anymore, they got receivers – not an issue anymore, we know about the defense and the playmakers, not an issue anymore, John Harbaugh has already won a Super Bowl, you got everything in place'. I’m convinced now more than ever the Baltimore Ravens are the real deal, and I feel 10x better about my pick that they will win the Super Bowl. I really believe they are going to win the Super Bowl when I look at this team, especially because they can win in so many ways. Everything doesn’t always work and sometimes you need a defense to make a stop and make a play. Sometimes you need somebody to rush and get the big first down and keep the clock moving. Sometimes you need somebody to throw a touchdown late in the game, or you need a field goal... Whatever it is, they have it, including the coach, who I have confidence in. In six of their games this year they have allowed three points or fewer in the first half. In this NFL where everybody is slinging a rock around that’s incredible to me. The Ravens have allowed an NFL-best 15.5 points per game, their fewest through 12 games since 2006.” (Full Segment Above)
