Baltimore is arguably the most surprising 2-0 team in the league and while the wins are all that count, they haven't been scintillating in a 13-7 home opener over the Bills and then a late charge to come back and catch the lowly Browns, 25-20, in Cleveland.
This week the Ravens travel to Jacksonville where the Jags are one of the most disappointing 0-2 clubs in the league after a 27-23 opening day loss at home to the Packers and then an absolutely ugly butt whipping in San Diego from the Chargers. The Jaguars were thought by many to be a legitimate playoff contender this year, team owner Shad Kahn has said as much, and a third straight loss here, in front of the home folks would really ratchet up the heat on head coach Gus Bradley.
