Vote: Which team will win in Baltimore?

Baltimore's current football team bears a nickname that pays homage to one of native son Edgar Allen Poe's most famous poems, but another author had the perfect line for Saturday's showdown between the Ravens and Colts. The Colts are headed back to Baltimore, but as Thomas Wolfe pointed out, you can't go home again.

The Colts earned the trip to their former home by dispatching the Kansas City Chiefs in most unusual fashion. Peyton Manning threw three interceptions, including a pair to old foe Ty Law, but a stout defensive effort powered Tony Dungy's team to a 23-8 victory. Now they face a rested Ravens team that won nine of its final 10 games during the regular season to earn a bye.

Will Indianapolis regain its offensive touch, or will Baltimore's defense be the best group on the field? Did last week's effort convince you the Colts have finally solved their defensive woes, or is Jamal Lewis ready for a big day? Vote on Saturday's showdown, SportsNation!
