Baltimore: The Ravens come off their bye week after taking a major beating at the hands of the Houston Texans in Week 7.Baltimore’s vaunted defense has taken its lumps, having suffered major injuries with the biggest being the heart and soul of the defense, Ray Lewis.  Luckily they’ve had the bye to re-group, but now this is a team that will have to be more offense-centric in order to have success down the stretch.Joe Flacco has played close to elite when at home, but hasn’t been as good on the road. Overall, he’s averaging over 260 yards per game and has 9 TDs total on the year. Not great numbers, and he’ll have to step it up for the Ravens to have a shot at their division.With Flacco misfiring some, Torrey Smith is a favorite sleeper that hasn’t quite woken up yet.

The column detailed all the times the professor was mistakenly contacted instead of the football player. Pitta, who is a marketing professor at the University of Baltimore, believes there are only three Dennis Pittas in the country — himself...

Can The Cleveland Browns Expect A Wide Open Josh Gordon Against Baltimore?

Ravens. Some Browns fans think the Ravens defense is old and slowing down. The fact is they are coming off one of the teams biggest losses of the season. I look for Ed Reed the Ravens safety to have a few things to say about Gordon running down the middle of the field wide open. Reed may even bait Brandon Weeden into some bad decisions. The Browns were on the look out for Reed in...

Trent Richardson is the hardest player to tackle in the league according...
