Last week, the Baltimore Ravens (1-0) came out and featured their new "sugar-huddle" offense being ran by Cam Cameron. The offense exploded for 430 yards, 308 of those by way of the pass.
Joe Flacco is in a contract year and wants to have a huge season to earn that paycheck. Ray Rice can play in this new style of offense and is a great receiver out of the backfield, showing off those skills with a couple one-handed catches in Week 1.
Torrey Smith hauled in one of his patented deep balls from Flacco a connection that will be there every week. Boldin is back in the slot and had an impressive game and will quietly have his best season since his days in Arizona. Dennis Pitta is a waiver wire addition this week, but we need to temper our expectations as the big game could easily shift to the other tight end Ed Dickson.
Good starts: Ray Rice, Torrey Smith
Middle of the road: Joe Flacco, Dennis Pitta, Anquan Boldin
Bad starts: Ed Dickson, Jacoby Jones
As good as the Ravens looked last week is how poor the Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) looked. Barely getting past the Cleveland Browns, the fans in Philadelphia are growing restless.
Mike Vick threw four picks as the offensive line struggled to keep him out of trouble, and this defensive matchup only gets worse.
LeSean McCoy is a must start every week. Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson have both not practiced yet this week, but are expected to play. Brent Celek won't be worth a look this week against Baltimore.
Good starts: Lesean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin
Middle of the road: Mike Vick, DeSean Jackson
Bad starts: Brent Celek, Jason Avant
