In eager anticipation of the 2013 NFL season, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will take a daily look at one of the 13 opponents on the Ravens' regular-season schedule. Today is the Green Bay Packers. The Ravens' Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers figures to be one of the most anticipated games on their regular-season schedule, particularly among those played at M&T Bank Stadium. The Packers, led by former MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers, won the Super Bowl three years ago and are perennial contenders in the NFC. The Ravens, led by Super Bowl MVP quarterback Joe Flacco, are the reigning champions and are perennial contenders in the AFC. Fans of offensive football should be looking forward to this one. I know I am. Recapping 2012: Despite being robbed of one win by the replacement refs, the Packers finished 11-5 last season and won the NFC North.

The Green Bay Packers signed former Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey to their active roster Monday. Dorsey, who was selected by the Packers in the seventh round of last year's draft, spent the first five weeks of this season on Green Bay's practice squad after spending last year on the team's injured reserve because of a toe injury. Dorsey, who had five catches for 52 yards for Green Bay during the preseason, only had 18 catches for 311 yards and four touchdowns as a senior at Maryland in 2013.

A roundup of NFL experts' picks for Sunday's game between the Ravens and Green Bay Packers. * The Sporting News' Vinnie Iyer thinks the Ravens will win, 27-24, over the Packers . The Super Bowl champions have been schizophrenic, going up and down within games and looking like two different teams at home vs. on the road. They just got Ray Rice on track, and Joe Flacco steps into a favorable duel with Aaron Rodgers. It helps both Rice and Flacco that Clay Matthews is out. What doesn't help Rodgers, however, is the fact that his offensive line must deal with Terrell Suggs and a strong pass defense behind him. * CBS Sports' Pete Prisco expects the Ravens to lose, 27-23, at home to Green Bay . The Packers seemed to right things last week coming out of the bye. But they will play this one without Clay Matthews, their best pass rusher.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors give their thoughts on the Ravens' loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 6 of the NFL season. Matt Vensel, reporter: It wasn't the shootout many of us expected -- at least not until the fourth quarter -- but the Ravens lost a tough one at home. The defense did all it could for the first three quarters until it ran out of gas when the final stops were needed. The offense ended up putting up some impressive numbers, but it struggled for much of the game, particularly the running game.

One positive development from Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers was the return of injured wide receiver Jacoby Jones, who returned kickoffs and made an 11-yard touchdown reception in the loss. The Ravens limited his usage, though. Jones played just 17 of the team's 66 offensive snaps and only six snaps on special teams in his first game since spraining his right knee in the season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos. Jones had two catches for 42 yards and averaged 25.5 yards on his four kickoff returns.

The Ravens have until Dec. 11, which is next Wednesday, to decide whether to activate tight end Dennis Pitta or move him to season-ending injured reserve. Barring a setback, it's more a matter of when they'll activate him rather than if. Pitta obviously won't be at full strength and speed for a little while. After all, he hasn't played a game since Super Bowl XLVII. But the Ravens don't need Pitta as an every-down player right now. At this point, they need him on third downs and in the red zone, areas where Joe Flacco loves to get his tight end the ball.

Cincinnati Bengals weak-side linebacker Vontaze Burfict flunked the equivalent of a high-profile job interview during a disastrous NFL scouting combine last year. Burfict ran the slowest 40-yard dash (5.09 seconds) of any linebacker prospect. He finished slower than several offensive linemen. He bench-pressed 225 pounds just 16 times, fewer than many defensive backs. In interviews, he showed a lack of accountability for poor self-discipline on the field, after racking up 16 personal fouls in his final 26 games at Arizona State.

Ravens fans are living on the hopes of last season. After the team's 24-18 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, there isn't much left. You never give up on a team in the unpredictable world of the NFL, especially with eight games remaining, but there hasn't been much to build on. The secondary continues to blow coverages and the running game is pathetic. Except for receiver Torrey Smith, the Ravens don't have any consistent impact players on offense and John Harbaugh is having his worst year as a head coach.

Jeff Zrebiec breaks down each facet of Sunday's game between the Ravens and Steelers at Heinz Field (4:25 p.m. on CBS). RAVENS PASSING GAME: Quarterback Joe Flacco has played well against the Steelers lately, averaging 228.4 yards passing while throwing six touchdowns and one interception in the past five matchups. Even as the Ravens' wide receivers get healthier, Flacco is still getting hit too much - he's been sacked 19 times - and he has more interceptions (8) than touchdowns (7)
