The Ravens have enjoyed some tasty home cooking the last few seasons, going 16-4 at M&T Bank Stadium during the John Harbaugh era.
Pretty impressive, but the Falcons can top it.
Under third-year head coach Mike Smith, the Falcons are 17-3 (.850) at the Georgia Dome, tied for the league's highest winning percentage at home.
Those numbers become even more impressive, however, when you consider that quarterback Matt Ryan missed two home games with a turf toe injury last season, and Atlanta ended up losing both of those contests.
So, in home games that Ryan starts, the Falcons are 17-1 over the course of the last three seasons.
Uh...how about we just call the Falcons and ask if we could move this game up here to Baltimore? It looks like it will be a lovely day here in Charm City.
No? Don't think that'll work? Damn.
The Ravens have been preparing for the dome environment this week, practicing indoors and pumping in simulated crowd noise. Doing so forces the offense to get acclimated to their silent counts and dealing with the noise while they're in the huddle.
Baltimore has earned road wins in a couple tough road environments so far this season, beating the Jets in their opener at the new Meadowlands, and topping the Steelers at Heinz Field, which is always difficult to do.
But they'll be up against it tonight in Atlanta, facing a team who has a ton of confidence when they play in front of their home fans at the Georgia Dome.
"It's going to be loud. There's going to be a lot of energy," linebacker Ray Lewis said. "They're playing at a very, very high level, and I know their crowd is going to be really psyched. So, it should be a really great environment to play in."
