Kevin Van Valkenburg: This is not exactly a team firing on all cylinders, is it? In the end, the Ravens secured a win, but this looked like a Week 2 performance, not a Week 16 performance, especially in a head-scratching second half. Baltimore has some real concerns headed into the final week of the season, including but not limited to: an injury to Marshall Yanda, a defense that is suddenly really vulnerable to the pass, a special teams that gives up too many big plays, and a quarterback still struggling with his accuracy. It's going to take one of the best performances of the year to beat the Bengals next week.
Matt Vensel: The Browns are who we thought they are, bumbling the game away. But who are the Ravens? We will find out next weekend in Cincinnati.
Ron Fritz: At least the Browns made it interesting, but the Ravens played pretty uninspired. But the Ravens got the win they needed.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
