NFL power rankings roundup: Where are the Ravens?

November 10, 2010|By Baltimore Sun reporter

Here's a look at how other media rank the Ravens.

• ESPN.com moves the Ravens up to No. 1 after their victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Channing Crowder's least favorite team has won five of its past six.

• Mike Florio of NBC's Pro Football Talk also ranks the Ravens in the top spot this week.

Every team should celebrate the 10-year anniversary of winning their first Super Bowl by trying to do it again.

• CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco puts the Ravens at No. 2.

They have a huge test Thursday at Atlanta. That could very well be a Super Bowl preview.

• FoxSports.com ranks the Ravens in the third spot -- behind both New York football teams.

While they got veteran WR Donte' Stallworth back last week from his broken foot, he was a non-factor against the Dolphins. It will be interesting to see if offensive coordinator Cam Cameron decides to open up the offense at all going forward. There's no question that the foundation of the offense starts with the power running game.

• FanHouse.com's Bruce Ciskie lists the Ravens at No. 2, but warns about their matchup with the Falcons.

The Baltimore defense looked much more together in a Week 9 win over Miami than it did in a Week 7 squeaker vs. Buffalo. But a short week and trip to Atlanta Thursday provide a test -- these Thursday night games are never easy to predict.

• Jeff Howe of NESN.com ranks an AFC North team at No. 1, but it's not the Ravens. He places them at No. 3 in this week's list.

Running back Ray Rice had 180 yards from scrimmage Sunday against the Dolphins, and his 97 receiving yards were 13 more than the next two highest receivers on the team.

• USA Today bumps the Ravens up two spots to No. 2 this week, but they also rank another AFC North team in the top spot.

Will get 10 days off after Thursday visit to Atlanta.
