Ravens Weekend

October 05, 2007

Where the Ravens fall in the latest power rankings:


No. 11: The Ravens aren't looking like one of those potentially elite teams many experts expected them to be. Sunday's loss to Cleveland can best be described as humbling.


No. 11: What is wrong with their defense? They have trouble defending the pass. Steve McNair doesn't look the same, either. Elite team? Not really.


No. 12: If you were to just look at the box score from Sunday's game against Cleveland, you'd assume the Ravens had won. Of course, that's exactly why games aren't settled in the box score.


No. 14: I looked at the box score and said, "How in the world did they lose this game to the Browns?" They had 26 first downs to 12, 418 yards to 303, more rushing yards and a better average, 5.7 to 3.3, with Willis McGahee carrying 14 times for 104 yards, a lot better than what the Browns' Jamal Lewis had (23 for 64). Penalty yardage was equal. OK, the Ravens had one more turnover, but does that make it 27-13?

No. 15: WR Derrick Mason has been thrown to 50 times (second in NFL), but ranks 22nd in yards (287).
