“Reasonable chance” Dennis Pitta plays on Sunday

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said early this week that tight end Dennis Pitta will play against the Vikings in Week 14 if he’s able to play after going through the week of practice.

The week of practice has come to an end and the Ravens haven’t made any move to put Pitta on the 53-man roster. It hasn’t been ruled out, though, and Harbaugh said Friday that there’s a “reasonable chance” that Pitta is in the lineup. For his part, Pitta said that nothing’s definite while sounding like he’s ready to give it a go.

“Ultimately it’s up to me and how I feel. We’ll see, we’ll make some decisions in next couple days,” Pitta said, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “You always want to see how you respond. It will be nice to take that first hit”

Per Wilson, the expectation around the team is that Pitta will play in a limited role this Sunday. His return should be a boost to the team’s offense and, by extension, their chances of earning a playoff spot as long as he’s healthy enough to give the team something close to the kind of production that resulted in 61 catches last season.

    After this weekend we will be 8-6 with a cake road game in LOLDetroit.

    We all know Peyton is waking up in a cold sweat realizing the Ravens will be coming in January.

    Im sure you will beat the Vikings, and you may even win vs Detroit…but #18 I am sure is leeping just fine at night.

    Which is a real feat, considering they will have played 13 games.

    I don’t see it. Not for the Vikings. He is no where near football shape even for red zone and 3rd down situations.

    ravenswhat,

    @ Lions
    vs Patriots
    @ Bengals

    Hold off on the “LOLs” until you get through that. The Ravens are sitting on a razor thin margin of making/missing the playoffs.

    “ELITE” joe flacco

    15 td – 14 int – 7 fumbles

    Thru a Ravens fan’s eyes……

    DET – Not a clutch team. Seem to play a dud game when it matters.

    NE – Brady doesn’t do well vs the Ravens. Flacco outplayed him in the last 2 AFC Championship games – 1 Lee Evans dropped pass away from back to back SB appearances. It’s a home game & we have a decent shot at winning.

    CIN – They should have the division wrapped up by then & last yr we played our 2nd team vs them. They may do the same & we could win vs their back half of the roster. If they don’t have the division locked up, that means they are in freefall & Dalton won’t be leading a confident & successful team onto the field. Either way, advantage Ravens.

    All 3 games will be tough, but all 3 are winnable.

    First, take care of business vs. MN. Lose that one & the Pgh win becomes meaningless.

    Hey misterrrustbelt, Flacco is currently tied for the NFL record for wins by a quarterback in his first six seasons. If he wins against the Vikings, he’ll set a new record. No one has more wins (including playoffs) since he’s entered the league.

    This game isn’t about statistics, it’s about wins. And having watched all of Flacco’s wins, I can safely say the Ravens would not have won those 60 regular season games (and 9 playoff games) without Flacco.

    I would tell you to compare Dalton’s NFL records to Flacco’s, but Dalton hasn’t set any.

    elite joe flacco 9 playoff wins(3 in his first 2 years) and a superbowl
    average andy dalton. 0 playoff wins ever

    Flacco let it slip a day or two ago that Pitta hasn’t gone full speed yet in practices, so I’d say Pitta will be keeping the bench warm against Minnesota this Sunday. Cheers.
