The Ravens fail to answer the bell on Sunday against the Colts explosive offense. The secondary folds and allows Luck to pass for 4 touchdowns and 400 yards passing. Flacco throws two interceptions and Smith Sr. is held without a catch for the first time in 2014. Ravens lose 31-17. ~ Brian Bower

The Ravens and Colts get into a track meet from the start but the Ravens D cant keep up in the 3rd quarter as the secondary gets torched and Flacco throws 2 INTs in second half as the Ravens cant catch back up. Ravens lose 37-24. ~ Joe Polek

Andrew Luck’s abundance of ability matters more than the mediocrity of much his teammates. Luck does damage against the Ravens Secondary causing Baltimore fans to again check their calendars regarding Will Hill’s availability. ~ Chris Stoner

Ravens running backs total 200+ rushing yards in a game of keep away against the Colts. Ravens outlast Indy just before the O’s shell David Price in a day of celebration for Baltimore! ~ Matt Costantini

The Ravens defense surrenders its highest scoring total of the season so far, allowing 27 points. Andrew Luck eclipses 300 yards and accounts for two touchdowns. ~ Kyle Casey

Joe Flacco throws for more yards than Andrew Luck but the Ravens lose anyway, 34-30 ~ Tony Lombardi

The Ravens struggle on offense but the defense keeps the game close. In the end, Andrew Luck leads the Colts to a game-winning field goal as time expires. ~ Tyler Lombardi

This is the week the Ravens’ secondary woes come back to haunt them. In particular, T.Y. Hilton will be able to get behind the safeties to snag two passes that cover 40 yards or more. ~ Dev Panchwagh

Ravens secondary plays well at first, but Luck starts picking them apart in 2nd half. Ravens O starts slow, but makes a 2nd half run, only to fall short 33-30. ~ Brian McFarland

* Jacoby Jones finally gets his season going with a kick returned for a TD.
* The Ravens defense forces Andrew Luck to throw multiple interceptions and for a completion percentage under 55 percent.
* Justin Forsett break the century mark in rushing yardage for the first time as a Raven and the third time in his career. ~ Mike Fast

Chuck Pagano will have Vontae Davis shadow Steve Smith all day and he will have his quietest week thus far in the regular season. But with the biggest weakness of the Colts defense being their linebackers and safeties, Marlon Brown will have a good day out of the slot and Torrey Smith will take advantage of dome conditions and put up big numbers. They will combine for between 10-15 catches and two touchdowns. ~Ryan Jones

While the “over” is quite tempting for this game, I think we’re in for a much lower-scoring, field-position battle than anybody expects. The teams won’t combine for more than four total touchdowns. The Ravens secondary has its flaws, for sure, but the Colts wilt a bit finally seeing another contender. Give me Baltimore getting their first franchise win in Indy, by a field goal. – Derek Arnold
