If the Ravens can't put some distance between themselves and the Steelers while Big Ben is out, they won't be able to go anywhere this postseason.
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season.
Let's take a look at week 12.
Minnesota at Chicago - The Vikings are coming off their bye week to face a Bears team that got destroyed last week by the 49ers. The Vikings started off hot but lost several games after Ponder started to turn the ball over. A weeks rest will help AP with his recovery and he'll be fresh to run the ball. If Ponder can manage the game against the Bears defense the Vikings will win this game.
The Bears were embarrassed last week on the national stage. Everyone got to see why Cutler is always so mad at his offensive line, they're terrible. Cutler covers up so many issues on offense it's crazy. Anyone that cri...

AROUND THE WEB
The Pittsbrugh Steelers' LaMarr Woodley was pretty upset over Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice's perceived desecration of the the vaunted Steelers "Terrible Towel", and made it known on Twitter: "If youre not a steelers fan, dont put your hands on a terrible towel" @LaMarrWoodley, Nov. 19th Ray Rice says he didn't mean any disrespect, and...
Left to walk after nine years by the Baltimore Ravens last offseason, San Diego Chargers linebacker Jarrett Jones has reason to stick it to his former club when the two teams meet on Sunday.
Yet even he felt the since-overturned one-game suspension against Ravens safety Ed Reed was extreme.
"I thought it was totally BS that they were going to suspend him without pay,"...
RAY OF LIGHT
The Ravens running back expressed regret for draping a Terrible Towel over his head following a win over Pittsburgh, saying, "I apologize to those who saw it as disrespectful."
Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta has passed all his concussion tests and is ready to play Sunday against the Chargers.Fantasy Spin:Pitta is very close to eclipsing his receiving totals from last season and Baltimore still has six games left to play. We're projecting him to have a solid week against San Diego's 19th-ranked pass defense.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Chris Johnson is listed as
doubtful due to a thigh injury, while defensive lineman Haloti Ngata
(shoulder), linebacker Terrell Suggs (shoulder/ankle), safety Ed Reed
(shoulder) and tight end Dennis Pitta (head) are all probable to play against
the San Diego Chargers.
The Ravens have ruled cornerback Jimmy Smith out against the
Charges due to...
Ray Rice spoke this week to clear up matters regarding his use of the Pittsburgh Steelers “Terrible Towel.”
The Baltimore Ravens running back was photographed after his team’s 13-10 win over the Steelers last week with a Terrible Towel draped over his head. The Terrible Towels are waved by Steelers fans during games, and they’re considered a key accessory for the team’s...
The other night after the Ravens beat the Steelers, Baltimore running back Ray Rice walked off the field with the “terrible towel” on his head. Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley warned Rice on Twitter to not disrespect the towel. Rice has come out and made it clear that he never meant to disrespect the towel. “I actually asked a fan to trade like I’ve been trading jerseys...
Each week we take a look at those games where the public is really strongly backing one team over another and try to point out some flaws in that logic. This week, the biggest standout is the Ravens travelling on the road, coast to coast to face the Chargers. Baltimore has struggled away from home and that should continue this week; take the jump to find out why.
Are the Ravens the league's most underrated team? It sure seems that way. After a rash of injuries knocked out a pair of starters on the defensive side of the ball, Baltimore was left for dead.
So while everyone turned away, Flacco and the still stout defensive unit have put together a quietly elite performance through ten games. Sure missing Ray Lewis in the...
Below is the week 11 offensive line breakdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night.
I think it was pretty obvious to anyone that watched the game that this was not a great performance over all by the Steelers offensive line. There were several demerits handed out in both the pass and run blocking departments with pass protection being the worst...
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed their day off of work.
For the Ravens:
Out: CB Jimmy Smith (abs)
Doubtful: CB Chris Johnson (thigh)
Questionable: DE Pernell McPhee (thigh)
Probable: LB Brendon Ayanbadejo (shoulder), NT Terrence Cody (arm), TE Ed Dickson (neck), LB Dannell Ellerbe (toe/finger), S James Ihedigbo (neck), WR/RS Jacoby Jones (ankle), DT Haloti Ngata...
Baltimore Ravens (8-2) at San Diego Chargers (4-6)
The Chargers haven’t beaten a team other than the Chiefs since week 2, when they beat the Titans, who aren’t exactly great either and then before that they beat Oakland. Why would anyone pick them to beat the Ravens? Well, that seems to be the public sentiment this week as the public is pounding Baltimore as small road favorites...
