MV5BYjcwNjc4N2QtZmUwOS00NzM1LWIzNmMtZTJi USA Today needs to calm down some. They have the Ravens at #5.

 

 

NFL power rankings, post-Week 1 edition:

1. Patriots (1): If they're 30 points better than Pittsburgh before bringing Antonio Brown into fold, who's going to derail them going forward? (AB, right?)

2. Chiefs (2): Appears they'll get nice boost from a pair of ex-Bills — RB Shady McCoy and WR Sammy Watkins. K.C. definitely looms as most significant threat to New England.

3. Vikings (5): Suffocating defense and a relentless run game with QB Kirk Cousins almost in a complementary role — exactly the type of team that Mike Zimmer wants.

4. Saints (3): This time they avoided heartbreaking loss on national stage, but secondary has work to do if New Orleans is to celebrate 10-year Super Bowl anniversary in style.

5. Ravens (17): QB Lamar Jackson looked like an MVP. New-look defense appeared up to Baltimore's perennial standards. But was it all a Miami mirage?....https://www.usatoday...ens/2269848001/

 

 

#8 in ESPN's....

Prisco has them at # 10.....https://www.cbssport...ake-big-tumble/

 

LOL!

 

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is getting a bust made in Canton.

The New England Patriots can't be beat.

The Miami Dolphins can't beat Alabama.

Sammy Watkins is Jerry Rice now.

The Cleveland Browns will be lucky to get to .500.

On an on it goes with NFL Week 1 overreactions. Just remember, you are never as good or as bad as you look in Week 1...........https://www.cbssport...ake-big-tumble/

RANK

9

BALTIMORE RAVENS (1-0)

2

Previous rank: No. 11

We knew the Ravens drew a favorable matchup in Week 1, but it wasn't supposed to be that easy. Baltimore's drive results by possession in the first half: TD, TD, TD, TD, punt (muffed by Dolphins), TD, TD. That last score came after John Harbaugh called for a fake punt -- successfully executed -- with the Ravens leading 35-3. Cold-blooded! The biggest storyline, of course, was Lamar Jackson, who become the first QB with five or more touchdown passes in a season opener since Peyton Manning (2013). He didn't throw his first incompletion of the afternoon until the 3:31 mark of the second quarter. It won't always be this easy -- it may never be this easy again for Jackson -- but it remains an incredibly impressive start to a sophomore season that just saw its expectations go through the roof. The schedule stays soft in Week 2 with a home matchup against the Cardinals.....http://www.nfl.com/n...ise-browns-fall

The simple fact is, all this 22-year-old has done since entering the league is charm his teammates, win over his coaches, make spectacular plays, get better by the week and, oh yeah, win football games (now 7-2 in starts, including the playoffs). He has been a beacon in the community, with a natural joy about him and a positive energy you can see in the clips of his interactions with young fans at training camp.

It was a great win over a crummy team which is what good teams are supposed to do.

 

But in the NFL every week is a new experience. They have to stack victories together and not let all this rarefied bullshit lull them into a false sense that all they  have to do is show up to win. The Cards are a lousy team on the rebuild but I think Suggs will have a productive game and we'll have some (or a lot of a letdown). I believe the Ravens will win and it might even be easy but it won't be as easy as the Dolphins game.

 

And then the Chiefs game shows up in week 3.

The Chiefs game is when the real season starts.

Lamar did not like losing that one.

I don't know...I'm getting a Lamar jersey. He's totally won me over.

It's his character and work ethic.

 

 

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his record-breaking performance in Sunday’s 59-10 blowout of the Miami Dolphins, the NFL announced Wednesday.

It’s the first-ever NFL honor for Jackson, who has started just eight games in his career. Jackson led the Ravens in helping to set franchise records for points in a game, points in a half, total yards and margin of victory. He also set a career high for touchdowns, completion percentage and passing yards, and became the first player in Ravens history to record a perfect passer rating.

“That’s pretty dope,” he said Wednesday of the honor. “I owe that all to my team — the whole offense, the special teams and the defense. They kept putting us out there on the field, so hats off to the whole team.”
