Quoth The Commissioner Nevermore
H—a—l—l—e—l—u—l—a--h! Hallelulah! Hallelulah! The NFL’s regular officiating crews will be back in time for the game tonight. No more non-existent illegal motion calls. No more perfect coverage called pass interference. No more penalties being marched off in the wrong direction. No more replacement officials who were fired from the Lingerie Football League for unfortunately being too blind to enjoy the game (right). And…really…no more interceptions called “Simultaneous Possession”.
Simply put, NO MORE BULL – JUST FOOTBALL.
Unfortunately for fans tonight, this creates a difficult game to watch.
The Ravens are just better on both sides of the ball. The Browns cannot hope for some kind of divine referee intervention or series of blown calls that can keep them in this one. Weeden is not good. Browns’receivers are not good. The defense is not good with All Pro Joe Haden serving a suspension. For the Browns, tonight is NOT GOOD. So tonight we need help to make the game more exciting…WE NEED INGAMER!
So, what is INGAMER? Simple, it is an easy to play fantasy game for a single football game with the ability to change players each quarter. So you want to play, but you don’t know where to go or who to pick, right? We got your back. Let’s go through how to play and then breakdown some analysis of Browns at Ravens game tonight on NFL Network.
HOW INGAMER WORKS
So how does it work? You simply register for the game at www.ingamer.com. We make that easy too as you can use Facebook or Google+ automatic sign in. Then, select tonight’s Browns Ravens matchup. Then you will be asked to select five (5) players for tonight’s game. We suggest you select the Fill Squad button and then Submit as this automatically gives you a competitive roster. Then, you can look into the matchup and make changes. You can also select a Captain. This player gets double points, that’s positive or negative points so be careful as this is the only player you can't change. Then you plan where you will watch the game, invite your friends, find rivals in InGamer and have a ton of fun. It’s that easy.
FINDING THE BEST PLAYERS
The great thing about InGamer is that the scoring (left) is designed to make sure players who have a good game for their teams, will have a good game for you. So you should select players that will help their team the most and that will give you the highest score. So, the Fill Squad button does some math to make sure you have a competitive team, but you want to do more to determine who to pick. Well, the information is built into InGamer. You can find it all there to help you make decisions. Here are some of our favorite plays tonight.
RAVENS TO PICK TONIGHT
Everyone knows Joe Flacco, Ray Rice and Ray Lewis as the offensive and defensive leaders of this Ravens team. They are ALL good plays tonight since the Browns defense gives up tons of points to QBs and RBs and Lewis is again among the leaders in solo tackles policing the middle of the field. These are obvious players to cycle through, but we wanted to give you some more insights into some players you might not have on your radar.
Jacoby Jones, WR
Dennis Pitta, TE
Dannell Ellerbe, ILB
Ellerbe plays beside the great one each game and watches and learns. At only 6’1” 240, it is
his speed and pursuit that makes him a force to be reckoned with. Coming off a monster
game where his pressure on Brady changed the game with his 1.5 sacks and 8 solo tackles. He
should be counted on to do damage to the Cleveland OL and be in on tons of Trent Richardson tackles.
Ed Reed, FS
BROWNS TO PICK TONIGHT
Here is the shocker. Even though we are predicting a Ravens blow out, there is one offensive player that could be important all game. There are also a couple of non-household names in this one on the defensive side of the ball who will pile up tackles on Rice when they fall behind.
Trent Richardson, RB
D’Qwell Jackson, LB
D’Qwell has one of the best names in football and is a road warrior. With 3 sacks on the road at Cincy in week 2 and 14 total tackles plus assists, he can help you statistically like he helps his team. He also had a pick in Week 1. No one on the Browns is a juggernaut so if you need to find a play, the University of Maryland product is your man.
TJ Ward, SS
That is all for tonight. In blowouts, we can make the games more fun to watch with InGamer. So, HAVE FUN. Don’t overthink. Play the players you want to root for and those that you think will do the best.
So pick the place to watch the game. Grab your friends. Get the beer. AND….get in a blowout, Quoth the Ravens Nevermore with…INGAMER.
