Can the Ravens make the playoffs without Jimmy Smith?

All I could do was laugh when I heard the news that the Baltimore Ravens’ best defender and most valuable player, aside from Joe Flacco, would miss the rest of the season with a foot injury he suffered in Week 8. It’s a huge blow to a struggling secondary that is now down to three […]

Ravens dominated, lose composure in Pittsburgh

The Baltimore Ravens were dominated Sunday night on national television by their division rival Pittsburgh Steelers. They lost 43-23, and it wasn’t even that close. Now, the Ravens (5-4) suddenly find themselves in last place in the AFC North, looking up at the Cincinnati Bengals (5-2-1), the Steelers (5-3) and yes, the freaking Cleveland Browns […]

Prediction Sunday: Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals

It’s Week 8, and the Baltimore Ravens find themselves in a Week 1 rematch against their AFC North rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals took the first matchup 23-16 behind an A.J. Green tip-drill touchdown to give the Bengals the win. This time however, the Bengals will be without their star wide receiver, which obviously […]

4 reasons to be extra invested in the Ravens’ matchup with Cincinnati

Why “four” reasons, you ask? It seems like lists these days mean nothing unless they consist of an obscure number (thanks a lot, Buzzfeed). It certainly has nothing to do with the fact that my ex-girlfriend’s favorite number is four and I’ve become found of the number (don’t tell her I said that.) Not at […]

Ravens quietly propel themselves to AFC contender

Before we get to the Baltimore Ravens defense and the overall state of the team, let’s get something out of the way: Joe Flacco is a better quarterback than Matt Ryan. Let all your friends know. Is it really that close at this point? Ok, let’s move on, just had to get that out of […]

Prediction Sunday: Ravens vs. Atlanta Falcons

Despite Atlanta’s underwhelming record of 2-4, the Baltimore Ravens find themselves in a fun, tough matchup. It’s Joe Flacco vs. Matt Ryan in an endless “elite” debate about who is the superior quarterback. It seems the national narrative is that Ryan is more “elite,” but hey, I guess things like wins (both regular and playoff), […]

Baltimore Ravens v Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Baltimore Defeats Tampa Bay 48-17

Baltimore looked like a completely different team compared to last week. On the Raven’s opening drive, they went 80 yards in just four plays. The drive started with a 52 yard run from Justin Forsett and ended on a Joe Flacco pass to Torrey Smith, for a touchdown. Baltimore would lead Tampa Bay 38-0 going […]

Prediction Sunday: Ravens at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This is exactly the type of game that typically scares Baltimore Ravens fans. They go on the road to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are 1-4 and on paper, seem to be the inferior team. The Ravens SHOULD be able to come out of Tampa in the win column with relatively little fuss. But […]

Ravens never find a rhythm on offense as they fall to Indianapolis 20-13

The Baltimore Ravens found themselves in yet another ugly game on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts as both teams combined for seven turnovers (Ravens with 3, Colts with 4). For the Ravens, the offense never found their rhythm, as we’ve seen before, and the much-maligned defense had to pull most of the weight and keep […]
