Ravens lose in Houston, lose control of playoff fate

The Baltimore Ravens (9-6) laid an egg in Houston against the Texans (8-7), losing 25-13 in a game the Ravens had to have to keep control of their playoff fate.

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 […]
