And speaking of shock, this Ravens roller coaster ain't over yet. At 7-6 the Ravens are two games behind Cincinnati for the division. The Bengals would have to lose at least one more game than the Ravens over the next two weeks to make the teams' head-to-head to end the season a battle for the playoffs. The Bengals' remaining schedule-at Pittsburgh and at home against the Vikings-makes that unlikely, but if it happens, woo boy! The energy is gonna be like that last 45-second Flacco drive all over again. More realistically, though, the Ravens are going to be fighting for their playoff lives, trying to hold off the Dolphins who, along with the Chargers, share the Ravens' 7-6 record. Unlike the Chargers, however, who go into Denver this Thursday and then are at home against the Chiefs in Week 17, the Fish have the easiest schedule of the teams still in the hunt. They've got a tough one at home against the Patriots, then off to Buffalo, and home again for the Jets. The Ravens are not so lucky, with three very tough games left to play, going to Detroit in the dome, where the Lions eat opponents like Christians; then home against New England, who will hopefully be without superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski; and finally back on the road versus the Bengals. If the Ravens lose this week and either of those two squads win, we'll be looking up again.
