The Dome factor

I've been looking for stats on anthing related to dome play and have failed. We've played in a lot of domes this year, 5 total and the Ravens haven't played in one at all.

We've played pretty well in domes this year. Kind of feel like a quick field benefits the quicker team.

Do we have an edge on the dome factor?
i think we do, in a way...with Balt not playing in one...sometime the roof can cause blind spots for the ball

This dome in particular gives us a bit of an edge because we beat the Saints there in the regular season.

I think playing there once and just playing Atlanta will help. Our D had a great game in this dome against the saints.

And we average 55 points per game in the Superdome in Super Bowls:)
I actually posted something relating to this in the Gameday thread:

Heh, that would make me feel better if Kaepernick wasn't still in diapers at the time.

Texans @ Reliant Stadium, they got pounded. -In fact, 'KowboyKiller' brought up in that other thread that Reliant actually uses natural turf, and that this will be the first artificial turf-dome game period for Baltimore since week 3 of 2011. -Guys like Lewis and Suggs won't benefit well off the speed of false turf.


Honestly I was much more worried about the Packers and the Falcons. We can run the option on Balt all day, the dome favors us, and we are just the better team. #6 is on it's way!!

Niners!!!

Oh, ok that's where I missed it. For some reason I thought Reliant Stadium was outdoor.

Another thing: No wind factor for David Akers....... sigh.... I don't even.... never mind... ugggggggh.
The Dome equals a speed advantage... Kaep & LaMichael will ... Rip off HUGE runs!!! Only wish I could make it to the PARADE...
