The Ravens' no-huddle offense has gotten love all week, but now it'll have to brace for a lot of yelling.
It produced 37 points in a 44-13 win vs. the Cincinnati Bengals in the opener, but that was at M&T Bank Stadium.
Sunday's game will be at the Philadelphia Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field for their home opener.
They had the advantage last week against the Bengals because they were at home, Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans told CSN Philly's Reuben Frank. Here, with our crowd noise, that will make it tougher on those guys to be in a no-huddle.
Even the Ravens admit they had trouble at home running the fast-pace offense because of crowd noise. And they'll likely have rookie Kelechi Osemele at right tackle and surprise starter Ramon Harewood, a sixth-round draft pick in 2010 who spent his first two seasons on injured reserve, at left guard.
"This will be the first real crowd noise experience some of the young guys have had. It will just be another part of their growth, our growth as an offense and being able to do the no-huddle and some of those things," offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said. "Doing it at home is one thing."
The Ravens have worked on that aspect of the no-huddle and simulated crowd noise with speakers.
"I hope we're a lot better, on both sides of the ball really," coach John Harbaugh said Friday. "Offensively, obviously, it'll be more of an issue there. We had some issues on both sides of the ball. It's got to improve."
