Ravens Weekend

October 19, 2007

Where the Ravens fall in the latest power rankings:


No. 7: The Ravens offense reached the end zone for the first time in 19 drives and the defense has allowed just 10 points in the past two games. The Nov. 5 Monday nighter at Pittsburgh should give us an accurate read on this team.


No. 7: They're winning games, but at some point they have to score more. The defense had a heck of a day against the Rams.


No.7: In classic Ravens fashion, Baltimore's special teams and defense led the way in a 22-3 win over the Rams. Matt Stover kicked five field goals, the defense held St. Louis to three points and Kyle Boller did just enough to ensure the victory. The Ravens haven't been pretty this season, but at 4-2, they're sitting pretty in the AFC playoff picture.


No. 8: After they flogged poor St. Louis into submission, their weak-side LB, Bart Scott, said: "We give up some big plays and people think our defense isn't intimidating, but ask the Cleveland Browns and the St. Louis Rams how they felt after playing us?" This is almost an exact replica of a quote I once heard from Buddy Ryan, whose son, Rex, happens to coach Baltimore's defense.


No. 12: Behind a young line, Kyle Boller can expect some serious heat at Buffalo.

No. 11: Willis McGahee has been the game's leading rusher in all six Baltimore games this year.
