The Watch Tower tips its hat to Ed Bouchette and calls on him to take a bow. Writing on PG Plus before the Steelers-Seahawks game, Bouchette boldy predicted:
It would surprise no one if there is not a tie at the top of the AFC North today because the Baltimore Ravens could be in for a big letdown in Tennessee after treating their opener against the Steelers as if it were the Super Bowl.
Bouchette’s right of course. Ivan Cole of Behind the Steel Curtain made the observation about the euphoric celebration that occured on the Raven’s sideline throughout the 4th quater of the Debacle in Baltimore.
But a Baltimore let down was no sure thing.
Of course only one half of Bouchette’s prediction has come true thus far. Cleveland won tyring them with Pittsburgh and Baltimore. If Cincinnati would need to lose to Denver to make Bouchette’s prediction come true.
A Bengals win would give them sole possession of the AFC North…
…Granted, week 2 division leads are like early April batting averages, but seriously, who’d have predicted that?
