Webb to have hernia procedure, Gradkowski to undergo knee surgery

The Ravens got out of the season pretty healthy with coach John Harbaugh saying Tuesday that only two players plan to undergo surgeries as of now. Cornerback Lardarius Webb will have a procedure done to correct a sports hernia while center Gino Gradkowski will have arthroscopic knee surgery. Other than that, nothing for now. Webb didn't miss any time this season, his first after suffering

Harbaugh not happy, comfortable or familiar with Ravens sitting out playoffs

John Harbaugh has never been in this spot before. Standing in front of the media wearing a suit to look back on a completed season while the calendar remains in December, if only for a day, is something he hasn't had to do. For his first five years coaching the Ravens, they have been in the playoffs. This year, 8-8 didn't do the trick and

Another offseason of change could be ahead for Ravens, many want to return

The Ravens will most definitely have a different look to them when training camp begins next summer. Baltimore has 13 pending unrestricted free agents, seven of which were starters and all but one were key contributors to the team in 2013. The team has $70.9 million in cap space tied up in six players - Haloti Ngata, Joe Flacco, Terrell Suggs, Lardarius Webb, Ray Rice

Ravens pack up lockers, head home earlier than they'd like

The 2013 Ravens were together intact for perhaps the final time Monday, as players packed up their lockers, preparing to begin the offseason far earlier than they hoped they would. Baltimore saw a proud string of five consecutive playoff appearances end with an up-and-down 8-8 campaign that was capped by two straight losses and the Chargers taking the AFC's sixth seed. "That's what happens -

Ravens miss playoffs for first time under Harbaugh

Among the surest things in the NFL for five years was the Ravens being in the playoffs. That won't be case this year, as Baltimore will sit out the postseason for the first time since 2007 after losing 34-17 to the Bengals on Sunday. The Ravens dropped their last two games of the season after winning four in a row and they end the campaign

Another interception, another field goal (Ravens lose 34-17)

The Ravens have done an excellent job picking off passes today, as Lardarius Webb's interception in the third quarter was the team's third of the day. But they've also been just as good at not taking full advantage of the takeaways. Baltimore started with the ball at the Cincinnati 47 and again had to settle for a field goal - a Justin Tucker 34-yarder that

Offensively challenged Ravens one half away from no postseason

Win or lose, the Ravens have a chance to make the playoffs today. But after a punchless first half on offense and unfavorable current scores of games connected to the race, Baltimore is one half away from being eliminated from the postseason. The Ravens haven't missed the playoffs since going 5-11 in 2007, the year before coach John Harbaugh was hired. But the Ravens are

Takeaway turns into points, Ravens lead early (Bengals up 17-6)

The Ravens have had a near-perfect start to this game. They won the toss to start the second half with the ball, and ended up essentially starting the contest with the ball as well. Corey Graham intercepted Andy Dalton on the Bengals' first snap of the game, giving Baltimore the ball at the Cincinnati 21. It was Graham's fourth interception of the year and ended

Defensive lineman Art Jones out of Ravens' finale at Bengals

The Ravens will be without defensive lineman Art Jones for their regular season finale at the Bengals today. Jones suffered a concussion last Sunday against the Patriots and missed practice all week. It is the second game Jones will sit out this season. He also missed two games in 2011 because of a concussion. Terrence Cody and DeAngelo Tyson become all the more important today

Ravens stare down two top-10 units in Cincinnati

Opponent notwithstanding, the Ravens' task at hand is difficult enough. Then consider what they're up against. Baltimore heads to Cincinnati to face one of the NFL's top home teams and one of the hotter teams in the league down the stretch, a squad that has won four of five and ranks in the top 10 on both sides of the ball. The Bengals own the

Rice on playoff chances: "This is the situation we put ourselves in"

All the tension and uncertainty about whether the Ravens can extend their string of playoff appearances to six years in a row will be converted into relief or disappointment by 8 p.m. Sunday night. The Ravens head into the last day of the regular season unsure whether they'll be in the postseason and lacking complete control over whether they get there. Before going any further,

Tucker, Suggs, Ngata, Yanda selected to represent Ravens at Pro Bowl

The Ravens will be represented by kicker Justin Tucker, linebacker Terrell Suggs, guard Marshal Yanda and nose tackle Haloti Ngata at this year's Pro Bowl, which will be held Jan. 26 in Honolulu, Hawaii. This year's Pro Bowl won't pit the AFC against the NFC, but shifts to a fantasy draft format, so it's possible they won't be teammates in the NFL's All-Star game. Each

Five key Ravens questionable for finale at Bengals (plus awards for Tucker, Ihedigbo)

The Ravens appear to be in good shape health-wise as they prepare for their regular season finale at Cincinnati. No one is out. Only cornerback Asa Jackson (thigh) is doubtful, five important players are questionable and linebacker Albert McClellan (neck) is probable. The key Ravens uncertain for Sunday are linebacker Elvis Dumervil (ankle), center Gino Gradkowski (knee), defensive tackle Art Jones (concussion), running back Ray

Ravens to be welcomed to "The Jungle" on Sunday

The Bengals have more than earned the right to nickname their home-field advantage this season. When the Ravens wake up Sunday and head to Cincinnati's Paul Brown Stadium, also known as "The Jungle," they'll be up against one of three teams to go undefeated at home so far. The Bengals are 7-0 on their own turf, perhaps increasing the difficulty of a near must-win situation

Wideout Brandon Stokley to retire after season ends

At least Brandon Stokley got the chance to end his career the same place it started. The veteran wideout, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a concussion on Dec. 10, told The Denver Post he intends to retire at the end of the season. Stokley, 37, played in six games for the Ravens this year, making 13 catches for 115 yards. He will

Concussion keeps Art Jones off practice field again

While it's not clear whether the concussion sustained by Art Jones Sunday will keep him from playing against the Bengals, it hasn't allowed him to practice so far this week. The Ravens defensive tackle was unable to take the field Thursday and hasn't been able to do so this week, which could be bad news for the team. Jones has been an integral part of

Rice says thigh is fine, will have to prove himself again after rough campaign

Ray Rice started this week again unable to practice fully, this time by a thigh injury that limited him when the Ravens returned to work Thursday. The 26-year-old running back was glad to have a couple of days off before he got back on the practice field in preparation for Sunday's regular season finale at Cincinnati. "Tuesday was a great rest day of recovery. Coach

A. Jones, Gradkowski, Jackson among Ravens with injuries to overcome

The Ravens didn't practice Wednesday, but they released an estimated first injury report based on where their dinged-up guys stand so far this week. Defensive tackle Art Jones would not have practiced because of the concussion he suffered Sunday and center Gino Gradkowski would have sat out because of a knee injury. The team also would've likely held cornerback Asa Jackson out because of a

Flacco on his knee, offensive struggles and being named Media Good Guy

There isn't ever a good time to take a painful hit to the left knee, but for quarterback Joe Flacco to have it happen in Week 16 with the Ravens trying to make a run at the playoffs is close to the worst possible moment. Flacco dodged time missed, however, by taking the ball in Sunday's loss to the Patriots and reports that his knee

Harbaugh on playoff scenarios, Sunday's loss and more

The Ravens are down to one more chance. Win or lose, whether their season goes on for another week or two or three or more depends on Sunday, and coach John Harbaugh seemed to be wearing that pressure like an uncomfortable suit in his Monday presser. Baltimore is far from cozy heading into the regular season finale at Cincinnati, and preparation for the latest most

Ravens have best shot at second wild card despite little control

The NFL unveiled the official playoff scenarios for the final weekend of the regular season, and as was mapped out here last night, none of the four teams still alive for the AFC's second wild card are in complete control. That being said, the Ravens have the best shot of making the playoffs among the glut of teams vying for the conference's final berth. Baltimore

Pats hand Ravens most lopsided home loss in team history

The Ravens went into Sunday's game with plenty to play for and didn't come close to looking like a team that needed a win. The end result was an ugly, demoralizing 41-7 loss to the Patriots that left the Baltimore locker room seeming a little on edge. Quarterback Joe Flacco expected better. "It's disappointing. You know, we're used to going out there and playing well

Ravens need help to make playoffs after loss to Patriots

To get into the playoffs for the sixth year in a row, the Ravens can't just rely on themselves anymore. A 41-7 loss to the Patriots Sunday stripped that from them. Whether Baltimore wins or loses next week's regular season finale at Cincinnati, it needs some help to crack the top six in the AFC because the Chargers' win and losses by the Ravens and

Tucker's field goal streak snapped at 33 (Ravens lose 41-7)

Nothing about this Sunday has gone the Ravens' way, even for nearly infallible kicker Justin Tucker. With 14:19 to go in the contest, Tucker hooked a 37-yard field goal wide left, snapping his streak of 33 consecutive makes, which was the longest active run in the NFL. Tucker hadn't missed a field goal since going 0-for-2 against the Browns in Week 2, and last week

Nightmarish half ends with Ravens down 17-0 (Pats lead 20-0)

Fans booed as the Ravens jogged off the field after 30 minutes. It would be hard to draw up a more terrible start to the game for Baltimore, which entered the day in control of its playoff destiny only to move two quarters away from losing it. Trailing the Patriots 17-0 at halftime, the Ravens need a sudden change on offense after accumulating a meager

Pass interference hurts Ravens early (Pats up 17-0)

After being forced to punt to start the game, the Patriots were moving the ball just fine on their own before a huge penalty set them up for an easy score. Cornerback Jimmy Smith got a fistful of receiver Julian Edelman's jersey in the end zone, and was spotted by officials for a 34-yard pass interference penalty. That put New England on the 1-yard line,

Flacco, Rice, Dumervil active vs. Patriots

The Ravens listed three key players as questionable for today's meaningful home matchup against the Patriots, and all three are active. Quarterback Joe Flacco (knee), running back Ray Rice (thigh) and linebacker Elvis Dumervil (ankle) will all be in uniform for Baltimore. But that means tight end Dallas Clark will be taking a seat for the third straight week. Joining Clark as inactive are cornerback

Patriots-Ravens rivalry set for its latest chapter

The number of times the Ravens and Patriots have faced each other over the last five years, it would be strange if they weren't familiar with each other or if there wasn't some small amount of animosity. New England has become like an honorary member of the AFC North to Baltimore after six meetings since 2009, including three playoff games, two of which were AFC

Flacco, Brady match up with much on line for Ravens, Pats

When Joe Flacco and Tom Brady match up, more often than not the Ravens and Patriots are in for a good one. The two franchise quarterbacks have gone head-to-head six times since 2009 with each team winning three. (Read more about the division-like rivalry between the teams here.) But in recent seasons, the offensive casts of characters have been pretty similar. Brady had receiver Wes

Flacco, Rice, Dumervil questionable for Pats game (Tucker honored)

The Ravens have three key players listed as questionable for Sunday's home game against the Patriots, but it would be a surprise to see any not play with clinching a playoff berth possible. Quarterback Joe Flacco (knee), tailback Ray Rice (thigh) and linebacker Elvis Dumervil (ankle) are questionable, along with linebacker Albert McClellan (neck). It's possible Dumervil misses his second game in three weeks because

Ray Rice discusses possibility of retiring at age 30 (practice update)

During a conference call with the Patriots media this week, tailback Ray Rice let the public in on when he might call it a career. It's understandable if it seems ludicrous that the Ravens tailback is discussing retirement even though he's just 26. But Rice will turn 27 in January and is in the middle of the most difficult season of his career. Rice has

Suggs on six-game sacks drought: "I think about it a lot"

Back in November, had anyone said Terrell Suggs would go six games without a sack, you would've thought they were nuts. At that time, the Ravens linebacker had nine sacks in eight games and was taking down the quarterback with ease. Suggs has gone sackless since, recording none in Baltimore's last six games, staying stuck on nine since Nov. 3. When asked about it this

Flacco to wear brace after taking scary hit to left knee

Joe Flacco hasn't missed a game since entering the NFL in 2008, and it looks like that consecutive-games streak will continue even after the hit he took Monday. Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy struck the Ravens quarterback in the left knee, bending it awkwardly inward when attempting a diving hit in the fourth quarter. Flacco was examined on the sidelines, but stayed in the game, and

Justin Tucker named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for third time in '13

Justin Tucker's record performance Monday night has earned him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the third time this season. The second-year Ravens kicker set career and team records with six field goals and a 61-yard conversion in the 18-16 win over the Lions. Tucker accounted for all of Baltimore's scoring in the victory. He went 6-for-6 to improve to 35-for-37 this season,

Can Ravens clinch playoff berth Sunday?

The answer to the question posed in the headline: Yes. The Ravens' four straight wins have put them in position to wrap up their sixth consecutive playoff berth with one week to go in the regular season. The scenario is simple. Baltimore beats the Patriots, the Dolphins lose to the Bills and the Chargers lose or tie, and the Ravens will secure at least the

Tucker's record performance sends Ravens past Lions

The Ravens like to do things the hard way. Anyone who covers this team knows that Justin Tucker has incredible range. Kicks from 60-plus yards are routine in practice and warmups. And now he had a chance to show it in a game. Tucker's 33rd straight field goal was a career-best and team-record 61-yarder with 38 seconds remaining that proved to be the game-winner in

Lions roar out of the gates (Tucker trims it to 7-6)

The Lions sure didn't take long to get the upper hand over the Ravens. Detroit put together a dominant opening drive, going 78 yards in eight plays to take a 7-0 lead on Reggie Bush's 14-yard touchdown run with 11:03 to go in the first quarter. Bush ran three times for 16 yards on that possession while Matthew Stafford went 2-for-3 for 40 yards, and

Linebacker Dumervil, running back Bush active for Ravens-Lions

Two key players whose status was questionable entering tonight's contest will be active and in uniform: Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil and Lions running back Reggie Bush. Dumervil, who leads Baltimore with 9.5 sacks, returns to action after missing last week's game with a sprained ankle. Bush is back for Detroit after sitting out last week with a calf injury. Tight end Dallas Clark is also

What's at stake tonight in Detroit

Naturally in today's NFL, you get to the final three weeks of the season and the games mean a lot more to a number of teams. Tonight's visit to Detroit is especially important for the Ravens after the way this week's games have unfolded. The key decisions were the Dolphins' victory over the Patriots and the Bengals' loss to the Steelers. The Chargers' win over

After weeks of wild weather, Ravens take things indoors at Detroit

The snow in Baltimore last week. The tornadoes in Chicago on Nov. 17. The lightning Denver on opening night. When it comes to weather, the Ravens have seen it all. So no one around the Under Armour Performance Center is complaining about the fact that they won't have to worry about the elements Monday night in Detroit. The Ravens get a respite from the cold

Ravens' mission: Minimizing Megatron in Lions' den

Monday night's meeting between the Ravens and Lions looks like a primetime-worthy matchup on the surface - two 7-6 teams fighting for playoff berths with Baltimore bringing the league's ninth-ranked defense to take on Detroit's second-ranked offense. But this one can be boiled down a little further. Even though the Lions have weapons galore offensively, there's one unlike almost any player the Ravens have seen

Ravens' Dumervil, Lions' Bush questionable for Monday

After missing last Sunday's game and sitting out practice Thursday because of a sprained left ankle, linebacker Elvis Dumervil got back to work and is listed as questionable for Monday's game at Detroit. Dumervil could be crucial to the Ravens, who will be looking to shut down the NFL's second-best offense and third-ranked passing game. Safety Brynden Trawick (ankle) is also questionable while cornerback Lardarius

Marlon Brown, Joe Flacco earn weekly honors

Two Ravens were honored for their roles in the Ravens' fantastic finish to Sunday's win over the Vikings. Wideout Marlon Brown was named Pepsi Next Rookie of the Week after recording career highs of seven catches and 92 receiving yards. He also made the game-winning touchdown catch with four seconds remaining in the victory over Minnesota. Brown beat out Bengals running back Geovani Bernard, Jets

No hip soreness for Dennis Pitta after season debut (practice update)

The first thing most athletes say they need to overcome when returning from a major injury is the mental hurdle. The physical hurdle has been taken care of by surgery and/or rehab. Trusting a knee, an arm, a back, a hip - that all comes with time and evidence, seeing that the injury is in the past and health has been attained. Ravens tight end

Ravens respond to Matt Elam's comments about Calvin Johnson

Matt Elam might not have picked the right Lion to awaken when talking to the media Wednesday. When asked about star wideout Calvin Johnson, the Ravens rookie safety reeled off a string of compliments. "Big, fast, athletic, unstoppable, freak," Elam told the Associated Press. But he's receiving tons of attention for the next thing he said about the 6-foot-5 receiver known as Megatron. "He's pretty

Dumervil's ankle feeling better, Ravens optimistic he can play Monday (update)

Linebacker Elvis Dumervil missed his first game of the season Sunday, but coach John Harbaugh is optimistic the Ravens' sacks leader will only be out one. "I've been optimistic. I was optimistic last week about Elvis, too, so we'll see where we're at by the end of the week," Harbaugh said Thursday. Dumervil sprained his left ankle in Baltimore's Thanksgiving win over the Steelers and

Nearing Ravens record, Marlon Brown no longer feeling like a rookie

In his first year in the NFL, wideout Marlon Brown has gone from an undrafted rookie fighting for a job to a critical member of the Ravens offense. Brown has put together a terrific first season with 36 receptions (third on the team) for 412 yards (second on the squad). He ranks ninth among all NFL rookies in both. He stands out much more in

Patriots-Ravens game flexed out of primetime (Stokley to IR, Scott re-signed)

The NFL announced this afternoon that the Patriots-Ravens game on Dec. 22 has been flexed out of its original 8:30 p.m. slot. Baltimore will instead host New England at 4:25 p.m. that day with the Eagles facing the Bears in primetime. The Ravens had originally been scheduled to play two night games in seven days, but now they'll have to settle for just one nationally

Pitta makes immediate impact in return to Ravens

The Ravens didn't seem to have designs on easing tight end Dennis Pitta back into the offense. Pitta never seemed like a bystander in Sunday's 29-26 win over the Vikings even though he hadn't played all season as he recovered from hip surgery. Pitta, one of quarterback Joe Flacco's favorite receivers last season, matched Marlon Brown for the team lead by being targeted 11 times.

Where the Ravens stand after Week 14

A thrilling final 125 seconds Sunday ended with the Ravens in the win column for the third straight game and still in control of their playoff destiny. With four wins in five contests, Baltimore is now 7-6 and over .500 for the first time since Week 5 when it was 3-2. If the postseason began today, the Ravens would be in as the AFC's second

Snow bowl a unique experience for Ravens (plus notes)

The snow was falling long before the game started, covering the M&T Bank Stadium turf, obscuring the yard markers and completely changing the dynamic of the game ahead. The Ravens came out on top 29-26 after an incredible finish that was played with the field mostly plowed. But the majority of the game was held in wintry weather that only added to the list of

Harbaugh: "Will we ever see another game like that again?" (others on wild finish)

Coach John Harbaugh, nose reddened by the cold and in need of something - anything - to warm him up, stepped to the podium after Sunday's game and summed it up perfectly with one question. "Will we ever see another game like that again?" he asked. The Ravens and Vikings combined for 36 points in the last 2:05 of the contest with all five touchdowns

Vikings take first lead in fourth quarter (Ravens win 29-26)

The Ravens held on to the lead for as long as they could while unable to find their footing before the Vikings finally went on top. Minnesota took a 12-7 lead with 14:28 remaining, taking advantage of on Joe Flacco's second interception of the game. The Vikings drove 33 yards in five plays for their first touchdown of the contest after Andrew Sandejo's pick gave

Cold offense not keeping Ravens from halftime edge (Vikings cut it to 7-6)

Moving the ball has been a problem for the Ravens as they fight off both the Vikings and the snow at M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens didn't reach the 100-yard plateau until their final possession of the first half and are being outgained 151-103 at halftime. But thanks to Toby Gerhart's lost fumble at his own 25, Baltimore holds a 7-3 lead. The Ravens haven't

Ravens take first lead in Sunday snow bowl (Vikings on the board)

The start of today's Vikings-Ravens game has gone just like you'd dream a snow bowl would. The snowfall has ranged from flurries to a cold white blanket, and the fumbling, slipping and stumbling has come with it. Each team had a turnover in the game's first 10 minutes - Joe Flacco's 15th interception of the year and a Toby Gerhart fumble. The Vikings fumbled earlier,

Pitta in, Dumervil out for Ravens vs. Vikings

Dennis Pitta is officially back. The Ravens tight end is active for today's game against the Vikings after being moved from injured reserve to the 53-man roster on Saturday. Just how much he plays remains to be seen and it's easy to see both sides of the argument with the M&T Bank Stadium turf covered in snow less than 90 minutes before kickoff. A real

Ravens activate Dennis Pitta, waive Bernard Scott

The Ravens activated tight end Dennis Pitta from injured reserve/designated to return Saturday, nearly completing an amazing comeback from what was once thought to be season-ending hip surgery. To make room for Pitta on the 53-man roster, Baltimore waived running back Bernard Scott, who has not appeared in a game for the Ravens since being signed on Oct. 28. On Friday, coach John Harbaugh said

Ravens' run defense set on stifling Adrian Peterson

The Ravens had reason to take pause while preparing for Sunday's home tilt with the Vikings. Baltimore won't be hosting any normal 3-8-1 squad. The Ravens are faced with bottling up Adrian Peterson, the league's leading rusher and perhaps the biggest game-breaker in the NFL. Peterson is capable of winning a game on his own, and has been at his best in leading Minnesota to

Ravens not taking cellar-dwelling Vikings lightly

The Minnesota Vikings might be 3-8-1, sitting in the NFC North basement, but the Ravens spent this week talking like a team that won't be overlooking the final sub-.500 squad on the schedule. The Ravens are coming off big season-boosting wins over the Jets and Steelers, which makes it logical to think they might not take a last-place team quite as seriously. Quarterback Joe Flacco

Dumervil doubtful, Pitta has "reasonable chance" to play against Vikings

The Ravens could be without linebacker Elvis Dumervil on Sunday after the veteran pass rusher missed practice all week with a sprained ankle. But Baltimore hasn't ruled him out, listing Dumervil as doubtful for for the contest against the Vikings. He has appeared in all 12 games this season and leads the Ravens with 9.5 sacks. Coach John Harbaugh told reporters that Dumervil will be

Jimmy Smith feeling fine after collision: "I must be a lucky guy" (update)

Six days after laying flat on the turf following a dangerous collision with Steelers tailback Le'Veon Bell, Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith was practicing Wednesday. Smith had been cleared through the concussion protocol and when talking to the media Thursday for the first time since the hit, said things are good health-wise. "I'm fine. I'm good," Smith said. "I was never knocked out completely. I was

Torrey Smith moving in on Ravens' single-season receiving yards record

In his first year as the Ravens' No. 1 wideout, Torrey Smith is closing in on a record his predecessor didn't challenge. Smith has 54 catches for 952 yards and four touchdowns through 12 games. Anquan Boldin never had more than 921 receiving yards in his three seasons with the Ravens, and averaged 881.7 per year during his time in Baltimore. With four games to

Harbaugh "pretty hopeful" Pitta can play Sunday, J. Smith cleared (update)

Tight end Dennis Pitta appears to be nearing a return to the field, and this afternoon, coach John Harbaugh indicated that could happen Sunday. After two weeks of only going far as, "We'll see," Harbaugh was a bit more upbeat about Pitta's progress in his return from hip surgery. "I'm pretty hopeful that he can play on Sunday," Harbaugh said. "... I think it's going

Ravens react to Tomlin's hefty punishment from NFL

Hours after the NFL handed down a $100,000 fine to Steelers coach Mike Tomlin for interfering with play on the field during Jacoby Jones' kickoff return Thursday, the Ravens had an opportunity to react. Coach John Harbaugh provided the political response to the league's punishment, which could also be modified to include draft pick compensation when the picking order is determined after the season. "The

Steelers' Tomlin fined $100,000 for kickoff return incident vs. Ravens

After nearly a week of talking about how Steelers coach Mike Tomlin would be punished for having a foot on the field during Jacoby Jones' kickoff return last Thursday, the NFL has handed down its discipline. The league fined Tomlin $100,000 for "interfering with a play in progress" against the Ravens where he arguably led Jones to slow down and change directions during a 73-yard

Harbaugh on Tomlin, Ravens' health

Four days after the Ravens' 22-20 win over the Steelers, the NFL is still buzzing about the Mike Tomlin-Jacoby Jones incident, where the Pittsburgh head coach had a foot on the field of play during what might have been a kickoff return for a touchdown. Jones was tracked down by Cortez Allen and settled for a 73-yard return over six points. No flag was thrown

Harbaugh on Ravens' playoff chances: "What matters is us. We just have to win"

As mentioned here earlier today, the Ravens' postseason prospects vastly improved last week with two wins in five days. At 6-6, Baltimore has a good handle of whether it will make the playoffs and the team would qualify as the AFC's second wild card if the postseason started today. So, of course coach John Harbaugh is pleased at the moment. "We're excited about where we're

Where the Ravens stand after Week 13

In a matter of two weeks, the Ravens have gone from looking up at a glut of teams that could keep them out of the playoffs to being in full control of whether they make the postseason. All Baltimore needed to do was win, and that's exactly what the team has done, taking two in a row and three of four to improve to 6-6.
