Football season got off to a great start yesterday, didn’t it? Loved seeing Peyton Manning, formerly of the Indianapolis professional football team, come back after sitting out a year with a neck injury and heroically lead the Denver Broncos past the Pittsburgh Steelers.
If Manning accomplishes nothing else in his career from here out, I will consider his return a success just for knocking off Ben Roethlisberger and his cronies.
So tonight… Well, the betting line among the online sports books has gone from the Ravens opening as a 5-point favorite early in the week to 7-point favorites today. The Ravens beat the Bengals twice last year, by 7 at home and 8 points away, respectively.
Could be a tight contest with the Bengals, who at 9-7 reached the playoffs last year. On the other hand, Harbaugh is 4-0 in season openers and will have the Ravens prepared. Naturally, everyone wants to see what kind of pass rush the Ravens...
