IT'S IMPOSSIBLE to sugarcoat what happened to the Ravens in the second half of Sunday's game against the New England Patriots, but I'm going to jump off the NFL emotional roller coaster and let everybody else jump off the Ravens' bandwagon. Sure, the Patriots are the superior team - by far, at the moment - and they've got two of the past three Super Bowl trophies to prove it. Sure, the Ravens got buried so deep in that swamp in Foxboro that it would be hard to find any forensic evidence that they were ever there.

FOXBORO, Mass. - "Denial" is not just a river in Egypt. Nor, for that matter, is it the name of a similar body of water forming on the Gillette Stadium field yesterday. It's the state the Ravens appear to be in. Listening to them last night, one would think that the AFC's berth in the Super Bowl is theirs to lose. Or that the calendar is about to flip over to September, not December. Or that the rest of the NFL is as enamored of them as they are of themselves. Of all the things said in the visiting locker room last night that distanced them from the 21-point cave-in against the Patriots, the most stunning was one repeated by a number of players: "We'll see them again."

There is concern that Bledsoe has a third-degree separation, the worst kind.

For four months, since stepping onto the field at training camp, the Ravens have declared themselves a Super Bowl contender. Today, at the raucous home of the defending NFL champion New England Patriots, the Ravens either will back up those bold words or again fail to climb up among the league's elite. At 7-3, the Ravens are off to the best start in franchise history, yet remain locked in a logjam in a highly competitive AFC playoff race. Week 12 brings a prime opportunity for them to break free against the ever-imposing Patriots (9-1)

Ravens run offense vs. Patriots run defense: The loss of Jamal Lewis (ankle) is devastating, despite the All-Pro running back's season-long struggles. Although his replacement, Chester Taylor, is solid, he doesn't have the same breakaway ability and doesn't command the same attention from defenses. Taylor has averaged 83.5 yards in two starts this season, but he could get worn down without a reliable backup (Musa Smith is out for the season with a broken leg). The Ravens' offensive line has not dominated like last year - the team has averaged only 2.5 yards a carry the past two games - and could have trouble pushing around interior linemen Keith Traylor (340 pounds)

In a raucous Week 3, seven unbeatens fell, scoreboards lit up in an offensive orgy, and Tom Brady easily won his quarterback matchup with Peyton Manning. In other words, things were pretty much back to normal in the NFL. This was the most revealing week yet of the young season. It featured another circus-like performance from the St. Louis Rams, a stunning nose dive for the Indianapolis Colts and another win for the San Diego Chargers, who look more and more like destiny's darlings with their fifth-place schedule.
