During the preseason opener, the Ravens put up 267 net yards with quarterback Josh Woodrum leading the way, throwing for 85 yards and completing all four of his passes.
But that was in front of a home crowd jazzed about seeing Baltimore back on the field. For Week 2, the Ravens are headed down to Miami to take on the Dolphins, who are prepping their new quarterback, Jay Cutler.

Though the final scores don’t really matter, we decided to get into regular-season strength by predicting how the game will go.
Ravens 17 – Dolphins 10
This contest is closer than last week thanks to a scary looking defensive line for Miami. It doesn’t help anything that Baltimore’s offensive line is changing around currently and starting two players that are either new with the team or new to their position. I fully expect the Ravens’ offense to look sloppy and have difficulty putting points on the board until later in the game when their depth should shine.
Much like last week, this will be a defensive game for Baltimore as they play the field position game all night long.
Ravens 20 – Dolphins 10
The Ravens first team defense continues build the momentum they created in Week 1 by harrassing Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler early and often.
On the offensive side of the ball for Baltimore, backup quarterback Ryan Mallett had an awful showing in Week 1 against the Washington Redskins. In Week 2, expect Mallett to bounce back with something to prove in the first half.
Ravens 17 – Dolphins 10
I expect the Ravens defense to come out strong again, especially against new Dolphins QB Jay Cutler. Brent Urban should be expected to impress again after last week. I’d also like to keep an eye on undrafted CB Jaylen Hill against Cutler – would be a perfect game to cement his spot on the team.
Ravens 20 – Dolphins 7
The offense will struggle it’s way into scoring a touchdown, as Ryan Mallett isn’t showing any signs of getting better. The defense will repeat their dominant performance from last week, as they harass the Dolphins offense and get another win in the stadium that has been their second home.
