Kindle shows some spark in first game

Sergio Kindle is one of the players that many are going to be watching throughout the preseason.
He missed all of 2009 after falling down the stairs and made it back last season but only played in two games. Now, hes had a full off-season of learning and studying for the first time and has looked good in the first part of camp.
The next test is the preseason games. Kindle got some good playing time in last Thursdays 31-17 victory over the Falcons in Atlanta. He finished with three tackles and no sacks, but coach John Harbaugh saw it as a good starting point for someone who really hadnt played much in recent times.
I saw Sergio playing most of the game and playing pretty well, Harbaugh said when speaking to the media recently. He started off a little shakyhad a couple of missed assignments that led to some of their conversions a little bit, but that was to be expected.
Harbaugh said after all of the time that Kindle missed, they knew he wasnt going to come in and look like another version of Ray Lewis right away.
In addition, Harbaugh said the Ravens wanted to give Kindle some time on the field to work his way through everything. The team appears ready to have some patience here.
We knew we were going to have that in this game, Harbaugh said of some of Kindles problems. Were going to play him a lot in the preseason and let him play through it. He hasnt played much football in a long time, so he needs to play, and he did pretty well.
Kindle has three more games to show the coaches something. Hes already shown improvement in the first part of camp. The big thing now is if he can keep doing better in the various preseason games.

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
