First, five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Richard Seymour goes to the Raiders and now seven-time Pro Bowl receiver Randy Moss might be heading to the Vikings?
Man, the Patriots certainly don't shy away from trading (or at least talking about trading) their star players if they feel like it has to be done.
Who wants Tom Brady? Come and get him.
If Moss does end up getting shipped up to Minnesota, you can bet the Ravens' defensive backs will be smiling. The Ravens travel to New England a week from Sunday to face the Pats, and the dynamic of that game will obviously shift a bit if Moss isn't in the huddle with Brady and the Patriots' offense.
Switching gears, I want you to take a look at the bottom five teams in the NFL in turnover ratio.
Three of those teams have a record of 0-4 a quarter of the way into the season, which isn't a surprise. One of those bottom five squads is 2-2 (and lucky to be there).
The final team? Despite having an NFL-worst minus-seven turnover ratio, that squad is currently 3-1.
The team I'm referring to, of course, is the Ravens.
Baltimore continues to struggle forcing turnovers, they continue to give the ball up, and somehow, they continue to win.
It's probably safe to say that no stat has a greater correlation to a team's record than turnover ratio. And that's what makes what the Ravens have done so far this season so remarkable.
The Ravens have just one fumble recovery all season. They got their first interception of the year in the final 30 seconds of last Sunday's game against the Steelers. The offense has turned the ball over nine times. And yet, the defense keeps making big plays when backed up in their own territory, and the offense keeps putting up just enough points to get the job done.
If the Ravens are to make a serious playoff push, this can't go on forever. They need to take better care of the football and force more turnovers on the defensive side as well.
But the fact that John Harbaugh's team has been able to win games against tough competition while still losing the turnover battle says a lot about this group. Now, imagine what they can do If they can start working their way back towards positive numbers in the turnover department.
