ESPN Upset Watch: Bills over Ravens

This week's Upset Watch looks at the surprising numbers that indicate the Bills and Ravens have been roughly equivalent so far this season -- both against tough schedules. Cover Watch looks at two other teams that have played similarly this year, New Orleans and Miami.

I just don't see it, even though 3 years ago the Bills played very well in an OT loss at M&T as well.

Last year the Ravens were pretty bad offensively on the road, but that wasn't the case in the playoffs. We'll see how things turn out this year, I don't know how much can be gleaned from the first game in Denver. The Bills D doesn't seem to present to many problems at this point.

I thought Manuel really struggled vs. the blitz against the Jets. His only solution to pressure was to lob inaccurate jump balls down the sideline. I'd imagine the Ravens will be pressuring him with their good pass rush as much as they can.

I don't see it happening, unfortunately, unless EJ *really* learned something from playing the Jets.
