Last week: 9 (+2) Record: 9-4 Net points per drive: 0.31 (10th) DVOA: 12.0% (9th) Weighted DVOA: 9.8% (10th) With the Ravens losing to the Redskins, the Bengals and Steelers had great opportunities to move within a game in the division, but both blew them and right now it looks like Baltimore is going to be locked into the division lead, which means they’ll get a home playoff game and they are awfully tough at home. They face the Broncos in what could decide the #3 seed this week, before hosting the Giants and the Bengals. The schedule isn’t easy, which is why it’s so huge that the Steelers and Bengals lost. I think the team they least want to see in the first round is the Steelers, who already won in Baltimore with their backup quarterback, but they should get at least 1 playoff win. I don’t know if they can go on the road and win in either New England or Houston though. Studs RB Ray Rice: Rushed for 121 yards (64 after contact) and a touchdown on 20 attempts, 4 broken tackles, cau...

Ravens defense feels Peyton Manning is the key to victory

The Ravens haven’t had much luck against Peyton Manning during his storied career and Sunday will mark another match up versus the MVP candidate. The Raven defense is struggling, in a tight AFC race; the Ravens have fallen out of the number two seed with the loss to the Washington Redskins. Things get magnified when Manning is involved, but the Ravens defense hasn’t measured...

Week 15 power rankings: Cam Cameron out in Baltimore, can Caldwell keep them rolling on the fly?

With yesterday’s news that Cam Cameron has been relieved of his post I’m left feeling a bit off. This must be how Jay Leno felt in the waning days of George W. Bush’s presidency… suddenly, I’m going to need all new material. In my own personal version of the #FireNorv campaign I have been fairly critical of Cameron throughout his reign as OC of the Ravens. Baltimore checks...

Ravens defense copes with rash of injuries

The once-esteemed defense of the Baltimore Ravens is almost unrecognizable these days. Many of the unit's most established players - including Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Lardarius Webb - have sustained serious injuries. Suggs missed first six games of the season on the sideline with a torn right Achillies tendon, returned for a half-dozen games and then sat out last week with...

Ray Rice Expected To Play Through Sore Hip

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray is dealing with a sore hip, but it's not expected to keep him off the field.Fantasy Spin:Rice posted his third 100-yard game of the season last week and has carried the ball at least 20 times in three of the last four Ravens games. Start him without worry as Baltimore would be smart to use him to keep the ball out of Peyton Manning's hands.

Ravens Injury Report: Terrell Suggs, Jimmy Smith, Ed Dickson

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith and linebacker Terrell Suggs were full participants in Friday’s practice and are considered questionable to play Sunday against the Denver Broncos, while tight end Ed Dickson is doubtful to suit up. While they’re listed as questionable, it would appear that Smith and Suggs are set to play against the Broncos considering they practiced...

Caldwell to remain with Ravens

Jim Caldwell will remain the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator next season. Caldwell moved from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator on Dec. 9 after coach John Harbaugh fired Cam Cameron. With Caldwell directing the offense, the Ravens have won three straight playoff games to advance to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2000 season. This is the first...

Ravens G Marshal Yanda Not Practicing, Won’t Play This Week

Ravens G Marshal Yanda was held out of practice and was spotted sporting a walking boot, per Aaron Wilson. The diagnosis is a high-ankle sprain for Yanda that Wilson refers to being “serious,” which will likely hold the offensive lineman out of this week’s game and render his status week-to-week. “I’m getting healthy as fast as possible, that’s the plan,” said Yanda...

Baltimore Ravens: Decision To Fire Cam Cameron Was Right Move At Right Time

Let the drama begin for the Baltimore Ravens. After four seasons in Baltimore, Cam Cameron was fired by the Ravens Monday. A change many spectators were expecting a year ago. Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell will get the honor of inheriting an offense that is talented enough to win a Super Bowl. However, with Cameron out of the picture, the focus of the Ravens...

Timing of Cameron firing risky for Ravens

Okay, I saw this week how the Baltimore Ravens made the fairly dramatic in-season move of replacing their offensive coordinator. Cam Cameron went down for a number of alleged reasons, including his offense’s inconsistency and, interestingly enough, his apparent unwillingness to get the ball in the hands of star running back Ray Rice. Here’s my question: Just how many touches...

Suggs upgraded to full participation

Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs was upgraded to full participation for Thursday’s practice. For the Broncos: Limited participation: G Chris Kuper (ankle) and LB Wesley Woodyard (ankle) Full participation: WR Trindon Holliday (knee), Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) and WR Matthew Willis (knee) For the Ravens: Out: LB Jameel McClain (neck) Did not participate: FB Vonta Leach (ankle...

McClain to miss Sunday’s game with neck injury

For the Broncos: Limited participation: G Chris Kuper (ankle) and LB Wesley Woodyard (ankle) Full participation: WR Trindon Holliday (knee), WR Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) and WR Matthew Willis (knee) For the Ravens: Out: LB Jameel McClain (neck) Did not participate: LB Dannell Ellerbe (ankle), DT Arthur Jones (shoulder), FB Vonta Leach (ankle), DE Pernell McPhee (thigh), S Bernard...

On a roll, Miller heads to Lewis' turf

(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Almost any time Ray Lewis has lined up over the last 17 years, he has been the best linebacker - if not the best player - on the field. If Lewis is in uniform Sunday when the Ravens play the Broncos that might not be the case. With his rare combination of around-the-corner speed and nimble footwork, Denver'...

Bud Light NFL Tailgate Series: Steelers – Ravens

Check out Bud Light’s NFL Tailgate Series from when the Pittsburgh Steelers visited the Baltimore Ravens.
