Ravens finally get a break

The Ravens will finally get a break after a tough early-season schedule.
Following Thursdays 23-16 victory over the Browns, a game where the Ravens had to grind out a decision over a stubborn Cleveland team that wouldnt go away, Baltimore now gets a few days off.
And the Ravens are looking forward to that down time.
Im tired, man, Ray Rice said when talking to the media after Thursdays game. I cant wait to have this weekend off. Four games, 17 days, 3-1. I just cant wait to have this weekend off. This win wasnt one of our prettier ones, but its a division win, and were alone in the top of our division. It feels good to come away with the win at home.
The Ravens have played three of their first four games at night, which is a little different from most contests, which teams play in the afternoon. After this, the Ravens will return to the earlier games for most of the rest of the season.
But first, the Ravens get a few days off and will then return next week to the type of weekly schedule they usually deal with.
Well be looking forward to a normal seven-day schedule, and weve got some 1 oclock games coming up, said coach John Harbaugh when talking to media after Thursday's game. So, we are looking forward to that.
The Ravens are fortunateespecially on offense to make it through these first four games without any major injuries. There are some players dealing with some smaller, more nagging injuries and now having 10 days before their next game (in Kansas City) lets them heal up a bit.
The schedule also wound up being tougher because the Ravens didnt play on Sunday afternoon but at night against the Patriots before coming back just four days later for this contest.
I thought we were fortunate to get both of the games home, so we didnt have to travel and something like that, said quarterback Joe Flacco. Its tough, its physically tough. Its good that we came out with a win and now we can get a couple of extra days to heal up and get ready to play Kansas City.

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

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.
