If nothing changes, the Ravens might not beat a quality team the rest of the way. Congratulations are in order. The Ravens clinched a playoff spot Sunday night, though I'm sure the champagne stayed on ice in the locker room, as they haven't done anything in the past three weeks to help their cause. Shortly after the Ravens got dominated by the Denver Broncos in a 34-17 loss, their third straight, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime, ensuring that the Ravens would be in the playoffs for a fifth straight season. It's an accomplishment that may not be celebrated, but it should not be slighted, as they earned each of the nine wins that got them back to the postseason. I can't believe I'm saying this -- especially since I suggested that something special was happening with these Ravens just three long weeks ago -- but I can't say with confidence that they will earn another win. The Ravens have lost three straight games for the first time since 2009, the last time that they stumbled into the playoffs.
