Where the Ravens fall in the latest power rankings:
No. 25: The five-game losing streak is the longest in franchise history and figures to reach seven with games against the Patriots and Colts the next two weeks. Right now, not even the Dec. 16 game at Miami seems like a sure win.
No. 26: We expect the offense to struggle. But what about the defense? It has allowed more than 30 points in consecutive games. That doesn't happen to the Ravens.
No. 27: The Ravens lost their franchise record fifth straight game Sunday, falling in San Diego, 32-14. Baltimore was outscored 22-7 in the second quarter and failed to recover. They are now 4-7, and it's probably time for Ravens fans to start thinking about the draft.
No. 27: Let's put it this way: If they sweep the table, starting with the Patriots on Monday night, they could end up 9-7 and in the postseason. You want me to do what? Save this kind of trash for Tuesday morning, when the garbage man comes? Look, my grandmother always told me that if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all, which, as you know, is impossible for me.
No. 27: The Ravens have registered just 22 sacks this year, and Terrell Suggs leads with four. In 2006, four different Ravens had chalked up 10 or more sacks.
