How ESPN computer gives the Ravens a 79.8% chance to win is beyong my understanding. You have to score points to win.

Boy if ever there was a get right game, this one is it for the offense. The Falcons are bad in every way, time to break out of this mud bank the offense has been stuck in, flex those muscles.

We all they are there, we saw flashes of it this year, remember, one must only remember.

If the offense doesn't take off this week, no matter who is under center, then just fire every coach right after the game, go get Harrel from Purdue before the ink dries on his new contract.

 

Let Peters and the Big Guy rest, a rookie qb and average wide outs with a bad offensive line means the replacements can get some work. Maybe even that high draft prospect coming off of an injury, the one who did very little in college... cough cough

From Hensley: The Ravens haven't had a wide receiver catch a touchdown pass since Week 3. :nono:

We're kind of pissed off right now about what happened [Saturday]," Zeitler said, before adding, "Any time [the defense] only gives up 13 points, there should be no team in the league that we lose to. You should not rush for over 200 yards and have three points."

 

I hope Lamar is healthy enough to play. That would give him and the coaches 3 games to be playoff ready ... if that's possible. I'm not confident. The Ravens make bad teams look good.

 

Sound familiar?

This game went like almost every other Falcons game this season: Their QB play wasn't great, but their nearly unstoppable rushing attack kept them in the game. The Falcons (5-9) totaled 231 yards on the ground with 139 of those coming from Tyler Allgeier, who bulldozed his way through the Saints defense. The problem for the Falcons is that their offense got off to a slow start behind Desmond Ridder, who led them to just three points in the first half in his first career start. Although Ridder wasn't great, he did come up with a clutch throw on fourth-and-5 late in the game, only to watch Drake London fumble the ball away. The Falcons had a chance to make a statement in the race for the NFC South title, but they let it slip away.

Ravens now have no chance at No. 1 seed and only have a 0.7% shot at No. 2 seed.

Here are more likely outcomes ...

No. 3 seed: 37.7%
No. 4: 0% (AFC South winner locked in here)
No. 5: 21.8%
No. 6: 24%
No. 7: 15%

As of today, Ravens are No. 5 seed (and would play at Titan

Another game we are supposed to win convincingly.  Ha!   

It'll be another barn burner.  Our D will somehow, someway make the rookie QB look like Johnny U.  

Meanwhile, our O will struggle against an Atlanta D which plays tough and a team that still has hopes of winning the NFC South. 

Something tells me that if they were calling for Harbs & GRO's heads after last game, wait until after this one.

Christian McCaffrey, 49ers: 227 yards (5.67)
Derrick Henry, Titans: 225 yards (5.92)
Josh Jacobs, Raiders: 192 (3.92)

Again, one says drops, another, very difficult catch because of an inaccurate pass. Should be caught? Okay, they are pros, but a properly thrown pass will be caught

Oh and yes I will gladly sit down with that YouTube and discuss this over film, I bet he either changes his tune or kicks me off his "show"

Mark Andrews was named to his third Pro Bowl. He has been selected to more Pro Bowls than any other tight end in Ravens history.
[8:02 PM]
Ravens’ six Pro Bowl selections

K Justin Tucker (6th Pro Bowl)
FB Patrick Ricard (4th)
TE Mark Andrews (3rd)
CB Marlon Humphrey (3rd)
PR-KR Devin Duvernay (2nd)
MLB Roquan Smith (1st)
[8:03 PM]
The Ravens’ biggest snub was guard Kevin Zeitler, who led his position in the fan voting.

It’s unreal that Zeitler has never been named to a Pro Bowl in his 11-year career. He was extremely deserving this season.
[8:03 PM]
Ravens FB Patrick Ricard, who is a dominating blocker for the NFL’s second-best run game, was named to his fourth straight Pro Bowl, the longest active streak on the team.

Ravens LS Nick Moore is also a first alternate.
[8:06 PM]
Roquan Smith is a first time Pro Bowl honoree. Duvernay is a second time selection. Andrews and Humphrey were selected to Pro Bowl for third time. Ricard is now a four-time Pro Bowl honoree. This is Tucker’s sixth selection.

Along with Lamar Jackson, Marcus Peters and Calais Campbell not practicing, the Ravens listed QB Tyler Huntley as limited with a right shoulder designation. Huntley missed some time over summer with right shoulder soreness.

Ravens have ruled out QB Lamar Jackson (knee), DE Calais Campbell (knee) and CB Marcus Peters (calf) for Saturday's game against the Falcons.

QB Tyler Huntley (right shoulder) is questionable after being limited in practice for second straight day.

Ravens WR Devin Duvernay broke his right foot Tuesday when he was simply running routes (against no defenders). The x-rays showed he broke his 5th metatarsal.

"I was actually told that he'd be back for the Super Bowl," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "I'm good with that." :yeah:

 

We need the Jets to lose tonight. go_jaguars_finger.gif&ehk=Pi12MXCQZLFXww

Well...the good news is the Jets lost to the Jags. I think if we and the Bengals win tomorrow we're in. Is that right?

They would need the Phins or the Pats to lose

I think the Bengals are playing the Pats so if the Ravens and Bengals both win we're both in.

I'd really like to see Anthony Brown play some before the end of the season just to see what he's got to offer.
