Baltimore Ravens: Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#13)

Last week: 14 (+1)

Record: 1-1

The Ravens are overrated. We’ll see it this weekend. They rank just 12th in yards per play differential, despite playing one of their games against a banged up Bengals team that I think is one of the worst in the league. They clearly miss Terrell Suggs and others defensively. Only 5 teams have given up more yards than they have. Joe Flacco had a good game against a Bengals defense that Brandon Weeden torched for 322 yards and 2 touchdowns last week, but fell flat against a much better Eagles defense, completing 22 of 42 for 232 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. They have a +4 turnover differential in 2 games and you can’t rely on winning the turnover battle every week, as it’s historically inconsistent on a week to week and year to year basis.
