Baltimore Ravens Playoff Scenarios

For the Ravens, it’s simple: A win against the Cincinnati Bengals, and no matter what else happens, they have a first-round bye and at least one home playoff game. Now, if the New England Patriots lose to the Buffalo Bills, and if the Ravens win, they’ll be the No. 1 seed with home games until […]

Ravens’ Run D Faltering at the Wrong Time

Ranked third against the run, the Baltimore Ravens yielded more than 100 yards against the Cleveland Browns last Saturday, marking the second straight week and fourth time in seven games that the defense has given up 100 or more yards in a game.

The Baltimore Ravens won’t need to be in any hurry to rush back All-Pro kicker Billy Cundiff from his left-calf injury. Not after what the newly signed Shayne Graham did in the Ravens’ 20-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday. Graham was a perfect two-for-two on field goals, nailing kicks from […]

Ravens Prevail Over Browns, 20-14

The Baltimore Ravens got out to a commanding 20-0 lead over the Cleveland Browns, stumbled, then prevailed for a 20-14 win that sealed the first undefeated home record in franchise history. Now, if Baltimore wins next week at Cincinnati, they will clinch their first AFC North division crown since the 2006 season. In doing so, […]
