Ravens Weekend

POWER RANKINGS

Where the Ravens fall in the latest power rankings:

ESPN.com

No. 7: The bad news? Baltimore committed six turnovers and suffered multiple injuries against the Bengals. The good news? They still had a chance at the end. This team is gritty, but health will be the key now.

CBSSports.com

No. 13: That wasn't pretty against the Bengals. And now Ray Lewis has a strained triceps and Steve McNair has a pulled groin.

Foxsports.com

No. 10: Steve McNair had arguably his worst game in two years as a Raven, turning the ball over four times and missing open targets throughout the evening. Kyle Boller looked solid in relief, but came up just short. Defense and special teams carried the Ravens on Monday. Nothing new there.

NFL.com

No. 12: An awful opening night for Steve McNair raises questions about where this team is headed.

ColdHardFootball Facts.com

No. 6: Pass rush continued to struggle against Cincinnati - after accumulating four sacks in the teams' two games last year, Baltimore managed just one on Monday night.
