A 17-7 halftime lead for the Ravens after rookie kicker Justin tucker hit a franchise record-tying field goal from 56 yards out.The Ravens had a slow start to the second half with two punts and an interception which allowe...

Last week: 14 (+1) Record: 1-1 The Ravens are overrated. We’ll see it this weekend. They rank just 12th in yards per play differential, despite playing one of their games against a banged up Bengals team that I think is one of the worst in the league. They clearly miss Terrell Suggs and others defensively. Only 5 teams have given up more yards than they have. Joe Flacco had a good...
