The Baltimore Ravens are playoff bound, and that's about the best thing that can be said about a team that's lost three in a row and has more than a half-dozen key players sidelined with injuries.
Baltimore (9-5) backed into the postseason late Sunday when Pittsburgh lost to Dallas. That assured the Ravens of at least wild-card berth, although their excitement over the accomplishment has been minimized by their current plight.
Coach John Harbaugh says the Ravens must ''get healthy, get better.''
Linebacker Ray Lewis remains sidelined with a torn triceps, and backup Jameel McClain is out for the year with a spinal cord contusion. Receiver Torrey Smith and running back Bernard Pierce received concussions in Sunday's 34-17 loss to Denver.
The Ravens host the New York Giants on Sunday.
BEST OF MAXIM
So Joe Flacco is basically a fluke at this point right? Only hardcore delusional Ravens fans would tell you otherwise. The real question here is, will this be bigger than Tebowing?? #Flaccoing is way easier to do and people love to give guys a hard time in the NFL when they are struggling. It's as easy as taking a nap too, which is basically what this guy does during...

With the Broncos up big Sunday in Baltimore, Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta boosted his stat line with a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Pitta produced a career-high 125 yards receiving Sunday against Denver. His seven touchdown catches this season (also a personal best) ranks fifth among NFL tight ends.
On a day when a Baltimore defense inundated with injury was able to give Peyton Manning everything he could handle and more, the Ravens offense did not show up like the cavalry they were supposed to be. In fact, Flacco and company gave points away to Denver. It was a disgraceful performance.
It wasn't all on Joe Flacco, although Joe admitted after the game the pick-6 he...
Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno displayed his athleticism by hurdling right over Baltimore Ravens safety (and future NFL Hall of Famer) Ed Reed during Sunday's NFL game at M&T Bank Stadium.
As of this writing, Moreno has 13 rushes for 74 yards, including that impressive run.

The star of the week for former Brigham Young Cougars in the NFL was clearly Dennis Pitta. He had his best day, individually, as a pro. Bryan Kehl had his best game of the season, and Brady Poppinga continued his immediate impact in Dallas. On a down note, Vic So’oto is no longer on the Packers’ active roster. Dennis Pitta, Baltimore Ravens, Tight EndPitta had career highs...
