Ravens reach 1st place by dismissing Falcons

BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Ravens are playing defense with the kind of swagger usually associated with a first-place team.

Ravens out-prepare Falcons, 29-7…

The national media will summarize this game as a “defensive domination” by the Ravens over the Atlanta Falcons. That is a factual truth— but I would go an extra layer beyond the obvious and theorize that the Falcons were simply unprepared to play on Sunday.

Week 7 Whiparound

Here are my initial reactions to the early slate of games: FAAB has been flying out of virtual wallets this season thanks to so many injuries, specifically at running back. If you happen to have some left, though, get ready to spend it on Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown. First in Buffalo, Fred Jackson suffered a groin injury and was carted off the field. About 10 minutes later, CJ...
