  1. Best defense in the NFL. No one wants to play Baltimore in the playoffs.
    Elite running game and best defense in football.

  2. Best defense in the NFL? Nope. Steelers defense has far better talent and more playmakers.

  3. Horrendous job by Atlanta in the end zone today. Looking at your Arthur. Drake London is a positive.

  4. Our pass game is still on life-support but the machine was actually blinking this week at least.

    Really? The Ravens have one win against a team that is currently likely to make the playoffs. In fact, they have one win against teams that currently have a winning record. They have not even played a team with a winning record since mid-October, and they lost that game. Scary team!!

    Do you really think the Ravens can keep up with Buffalo, KC, Cincy, or Miami with that elite run game?

    ==========================================
    They beat Cincinnati and more than kept up with Buffalo and Miami. They are going to hang with anyone if Lamar is healthy.

  7. Every team in the league wants Lamar to come back, even though he quit on the team. He is truly awful as a QB and Huntley is much better and this has now been proven over multiple seasons.
