Nightmare outing for Ravens in Texas—playoffs in doubt…

I kept waiting for something good to happen for the Ravens in Houston on Sunday. It never did. Houston 25, Ravens 13… Rarely do you see a Ravens team so totally dominated at the line of scrimmage—and so utterly lost on offense. I guess the law of averages caught up to the Ravens. Sooner or […]

Ravens head to Texas with playoff hopes on the line

The 9-5 Baltimore Ravens head to Houston to face the 7-7 Texans on Sunday in a game with tremendous AFC playoff implications. The Ravens are tied with the Steelers just a half game behind the Bengals in the AFC North, while the Texans sit on the outside of the playoff picture looking in after the […]


J.J. Watt and Texans hope to ruin homecoming for Ravens’ Kubiak…

Ravens’ offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak was head coach of the Houston Texans for most of the prior decade. So you’d expect some mixed emotions from the Texans players as the Ravens (9-5) try to build on their playoff drive this Sunday at Houston (7-7). But all-purpose defensive end J.J. Watt(6-5, 289, 4th year out of […]


Ravens survive a beautiful game plan by Gus Bradley and the Jags, 20-12…

As promised, the Jaguars brought not only the Funky Cold Medina but also the kitchen sink against the Ravens— but in the end, the Ravens’ front seven overpowered the Jaguars’ pass-pro scheme and sacked rookie QB Blake Bortles a total of eight times— which turned out to be the equivalent of the final point spread. […]


Ravens dare not look past Jaguars— Jacksonville has plenty to play for…

It would be easy to look past the struggling Jaguars in Baltimore on Sunday as the Ravens ponder their playoff run— especially as the fates seem to be dangling the prospect of the Ravens’ season coming down to a final-game showdown with the Cleveland Browns and Johnny Manziel. I know that thought would distract me […]


Survival in Miami— Ravens 28, Dolphins 13…

In the end it was the consistent 2nd-half pressure by the Ravens defensive line and outside linebacker pass rushers that sealed the win. But holy cow! was it a struggle to get there… Miami (now 7-6) came to play, taking advantage early of the Ravens’ disarray on defense due to the absence of DT Haloti […]


Ravens vs Jags tickets quite a bargain

The Baltimore Ravens enter December at 7-5 with their playoff destiny in their own hands. With the AFC North wide open and a huge week 17 clash with the Cleveland Browns left on the schedule, the Ravens simply need to finish strong to punch their ticket into the AFC tourney. [Getting past Miami this Sunday […]


Ravens travel to “must win” territory in Miami…

This Sunday’s game at South Beach is pretty much the crossroads moment for the 2014 Ravens. If the Ravens can’t beat the college-style offense of the Miami Dolphins defensively, then they don’t deserve to make the playoffs anyway. Now mathematically speaking the Ravens could lose to the Dolphins and still win their last 3 games […]


Ravens get nitpicked by Chargers, lose 34-33…

The Ravens made just enough mental mistakes on Sunday to give Philip Rivers enough snaps over the course of 60 minutes to come back and lead the winning drive with 38 seconds left. For the first 59:22 of the game, the Ravens never trailed… but they left a lot of points on the field. Untimely […]


Ravens fans should be grateful as Baltimore prepares for Chargers…

In a season that started out with sociological chaos and injuries to key personnel at tight end, defensive secondary and both defensive and offensive lines, Ravens fans ought to take inventory at Thanksgiving and thank their lucky stars. The Ravens are 7-4 and in position to make a late run. They have a chance to […]


Huge win by Ravens’ total-team effort over Saints, 34-27…

What a huge win for the Ravens… They ultimately turned the Saints’ game plan into a joke. Rob Ryan’s exotic blitz pressures did not work. Joe Flacco and his receivers read the blitz so well… Joe’s audibles at the LOS were right on… The Ravens’ offensive line (especially RG Marshal Yanda and RT Ricky Wagner) […]


Ravens face no easy task in New Orleans Monday night…

Here’s the real dilemma for the Ravens: when was the last time Drew Brees and his Saints lost three games in a row, and at home to boot? Answer: Never— well, at least since Brees took over at QB. So the Ravens (6-4) are fighting not only the skill sets of the Saints (4-6, but […]


Ravens get ready for Battle of New Orleans…

Ravens players reported back to their training center in Owings Mills tonight. It’s all about getting ready to play the Saints next Monday night. Historically Baltimore has done well coming off the Bye, winning 5 such games in a row under Harbaugh before they got punked last year by the Browns at Cleveland. What concerns […]


Ravens have a lot to be thankful for heading into Bye…

The Ravens machine gets a much needed pit stop. At 6-4 the Ravens have survived. Their divisional and playoff hopes are still very much intact. They’ve leaked some oil along the way, and have lost a tiebreaker advantage to the Bengals, but all-in-all they should be celebrating survival this week. How much PR nightmare and […]
