The Baltimore Ravens continue to find home in the bottom third of FanSided’s power rankings, coming in at No. 20 for the second straight week. It’s strange that the team did not fall in this week’s ranking coming off their overtime loss at home against the Cleveland Browns.
Times are tough in Baltimore right now, but the decision for our friends at FanSided to keep the Ravens at No. 20 is kind of a shocker. They are not playing good football, and are still ranked ahead of some teams that deserve to be ranked higher than Baltimore. Here is what they had to say:
The truth is the Ravens team MVP should be Steelers kicker Josh Scobee. If it wasn’t for him missing two field goals against the Ravens, Baltimore would be sitting at 0-5 and even further behind in the standings.
Earlier today, my colleague Brandon Suir asked if the Ravens season was over. Technically, no. They still have 11 games to go and can surprise us all and make a huge turnaround to get back into the thick of things.
The problem is the statement “there’s nothing to say things will get better soon” couldn’t be any more but true. The Ravens are hopeful that making some roster adjustments will spark some sort of a change, but this team has too many holes throughout the roster. Between injuries and a lack of playmakers on both sides of the ball, Ravens fans could be in for long season.
What is surprising is that the Browns somehow did not manage to squeak ahead of the Ravens in the rankings, despite defeating them on Sunday.
Here is how the rest of the AFC North was ranked this week:
Cleveland Browns: 21st
Pittsburgh Steelers: 9th
Cincinnati Bengals: 3rd
The Ravens head out west for another two-game West Coast swing, beginning with the San Fransisco 49ers on Sunday. The Niners have been struggling with the departure of John Harbaugh’s brother, Jim Harbaugh. This will also be the first time that former Raven Torrey Smith plays against his former team.
Remember that since the Ravens are playing out west, kick off is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. Stay with us for continuous Ravens coverage all season long.
