Baltimore Ravens: Week 15 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

Last week: 9 (+2)

Record: 9-4

Net points per drive: 0.31 (10th)

DVOA: 12.0% (9th)

Weighted DVOA: 9.8% (10th)

With the Ravens losing to the Redskins, the Bengals and Steelers had great opportunities to move within a game in the division, but both blew them and right now it looks like Baltimore is going to be locked into the division lead, which means they’ll get a home playoff game and they are awfully tough at home. They face the Broncos in what could decide the #3 seed this week, before hosting the Giants and the Bengals. The schedule isn’t easy, which is why it’s so huge that the Steelers and Bengals lost. I think the team they least want to see in the first round is the Steelers, who already won in Baltimore with their backup quarterback, but they should get at least 1 playoff win. I don’t know if they can go on the road and win in either New England or Houston though.
