Suggs saves emotions for Steelers


Suggs saves emotions for Steelers

Sunday's game carries an extra importance for the Ravens.

It'll be the first time their fans will get to see linebacker Terrell Suggs to play this season.

Suggs, who recently returned from the physicially-unable-to-perform list because of a torn Achilles, has had two starts.

Both were on the road as Baltimore went 1-1. There was the 43-13 loss to the Houston Texans and last week's 25-15 win vs. the Cleveland Browns.

The Raiders (3-5) come to down this weekend, possibly without running backs Darren McFadden (ankle) and Mike Goodson (ankle).

"It's going to be weird playing at M and T (Bank Stadium), but it's where I belong," said Suggs, who practiced for less than a week before returning to the field. "In rehab and in the training room is not where I belong. … I just can't wait to get out there and start playing for them again.

But don't expect Suggs to come out of the tunnel for introductions Sunday to rile up the home crowd where the Ravens have won 14 consecutive games.

Suggs would rather the offense and 5-foot-8 running back Ray Rice get announced, as scheduled. He can wait for a special home game for that moment.

"I'm going to knid of let it stay as it lies because there is a certain home game coming up that we might want the defense to get called out for," said Suggs, alluding to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 2. "That's pretty much coach's call. It's all in fun. We have enough marquee offensive guys that the crowd can still get into, especially with 'Mighty Mouse.'

After Sunday's game with the Raiders, the Raven's next two games are on the road at the San Diego Chargers and at the Steelers.

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.
