Lions-Ravens preview podcast: The battle for special teams supremacy

It’s a battle between to 6-5 teams, and two of the best special teams units.

NFL: Preseason-Detroit Lions at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

First Byte is back and ready to invade your earballs with another tasty Detroit Lions preview. This week, we brought in our friend Kyle Barber from Baltimore Beatdown to give us the lowdown on the Baltimore Ravens. Just how swarming is this defense? Just how awful is Joe Flacco and the passing offense?

We find out the answers to this, give some predictions and much, much more on this week’s First Byte:

Lions-Ravens preview topics:

  • How bad are the Lions screwed if T.J. Lang and Travis Swanson can’t play?
  • Kyle gives us the rundown of just how devastated the Ravens are from season-long injuries
  • This Ravens pass offense is bad. Like, unbelievably bad. Definitely not elite.
  • We talk about both special teams units, and Kyle reminds us of a very bad memory while we try to cut his mic.
  • Will Alex Collins become the next running back to chip away at this Lions defense?
  • I give an optimistic prediction for Sunday, while Kyle and Ryan predict DOOM.

Be sure to give Kyle a follow on Twitter here, and take a look at the great work he and his staff do over at Baltimore Beatdown. They’re good people.
