Baltimore Ravens: Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

Last week: 4 (-3)

Record: 5-2

Not ready to completely drop the Ravens yet. We all saw the Jets suffer a major injury, have a terrible game, and then exceed expectations by covering in 3 straight games. The AFC is still a joke and the Ravens already have 5 wins. As much as injuries to Lardarius Webb and Ray Lewis hurt, their defense wasn’t playing well to begin with. Their offense was actually what was carrying the team. Flacco is too inconsistent to consistently win games without a good defense, which is why they were struggling to win games even when they were winning (4 straight by a touchdown or less), but he’s also likely to bounce back from a horrific showing in Houston. After all, he hasn’t lost back-to-back games since week 6 of 2009, 14 straight. I have a feeling they bounce back after the bye in Cleveland.
