FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick may not be a riveting motivational speaker, but he always has an apt warning for his players at times like this. "Belichick made an important comment that hit home," linebacker Willie McGinest said. "He said, `If you live in the past, you die in the present.' " It would be easy for a team that has won three of the past four Super Bowls to live in the past. When the Patriots were .500 at midseason, when their injury-riddled defense couldn't have stopped a stray dog, let alone Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison, they could have packed it in and said, "It's not our year."

One-by-one, Ravens players said Sunday night that their last-second 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers wouldn't define their season or deter them from their regular-season goals. However, the defeat, coupled by another significant injury to linebacker Terrell Suggs, has made their already daunting four-game stretch to end the regular season even more difficult. Suggs tore his right biceps Sunday, leaving significant questions about whether he'll be able to help the Ravens the rest of the way. Suggs appears intent on trying to play through the injury, which wouldn't be unprecedented.

A realignment plan that would take Jacksonville and Tennessee out of the Ravens' division when the new Cleveland Browns enter it next year will be discussed by the owners later this month, but it probably has little chance of passing.The plan, advocated by Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney, would create four four-team AFC divisions when the expansion Cleveland team enters the AFC Central.It would shift only four teams to create a new division, taking one team each from the AFC East and West to join Jacksonville and Tennessee.

Thanks to the Indianapolis Colts, the Ravens' playoff chances have improved. The Colts' 35-31 win against the Jaguars at Jacksonville on Thursday night puts the Ravens as the sixth and final AFC seed at this point. If the Ravens win their final three regular-season games (home against the Chicago Bears and games at Pittsburgh and Oakland), they have a solid shot at earning a postseason berth for the second straight season. If the Ravens win their remaining games, the only scenario that would bump them out is the Miami Dolphins wining the AFC East.

Every Monday morning, the day after my favorite day of the week but still hours before that week's slate of games officially wraps up with “Monday Night Football,” I will bring you my weekly premature NFL power rankings. Why Monday? Because who wants to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday for power rankings? Why 11 teams? I don't really have a good answer for that one. I've always liked odd numbers. What am I basing them on? Who my gut tells me are the toughest teams to beat that week.

Bristol is beckoning Kevin Van Valkenburg Baltimore Sun I think I've solved the Terrell Owens issue. I know the perfect franchise for him. His inflated ego will fit right in, and so will his declining skills. It just isn't an NFL team. It's ESPN. Think about it. This is a match made in self-promoting heaven. T.O. isn't an elite NFL wide receiver anymore, but he'd be the perfect fit in Bristol. He could do weekly podcasts with Bill Simmons, corny humor segments with Kenny Mayne and Rick Reilly, a daily shouting contest with Colin Cowherd or Skip Bayless, and he could even give Hannah Storm fashion advice.

The Ravens didn't just win the Super Bowl last season, they broke the mold on how to do it. Their success proved a big-play quarterback wasn't a necessity, that ferocious defense, superb special teams and a running game were sufficient to the cause. A lot of teams bought into that concept this season, especially in the AFC. The NFC features prolific quarterbacks - the St. Louis Rams' Kurt Warner, Green Bay Packers' Brett Favre, San Francisco 49ers' Jeff Garcia - while the AFC features defense and running games, with just a few notable exceptions.

Healthy Chiefs dangerous Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune The playoff field in the AFC is going to include a lot of familiar teams from last year — with one notable exception. The Chiefs could go from worst to first in the AFC West. They were a team that was demolished by injuries last year, and they still won three of their last five games. With some better health this season, the Chiefs could be the NFL's surprise team. The returns of Matt Cassel, Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeaki and Eric Berry should bolster this team, and new coach Romeo Crennel should push the right buttons.

Jets Big questions: The Jets openly talk about getting to the Super Bowl; will that bluster come back to bite them? What if the team doesn't strike a deal with cornerback Darrelle Revis, their best player on either side of the ball? QB Mark Sanchez had some good games last season but not on a consistent basis. This is his team; is he ready for a sophomore surge? Can LaDainian Tomlinson prove at 31 that the Chargers made a mistake in letting him go? Big moves: A bunch of big-name players have come onboard: Tomlinson, Jason Taylor, Antonio Cromartie and Santonio Holmes.
