    They'll lose at least one of those. After all, they are Baltimore.

    Poppycock. They couldn't even beat Pittsburgh. In fact, they got manhandled by the Steelers.

    Pittsburgh is a good team...although, the Ravens are better.

    :rolleyes:
    Statistically, their defenses are virtually equal. Offenses are about equal, with Pittsburgh averaging only about 23 more yards...Baltimore scores more.

    The deciding factor is head to head, and Baltimore is 2-0 against Pittsburgh with one of those being a blowout.

    That's all moot when the Steelers win their division or advance farther in the post-season, as they did last year over the Ravens.

    I'm pulling for the Ravens but the way they've been so either off or on as a team, they could lose to Indy and Cleveland and beat the Chargers and Bengals and I wouldn't be surprised.

    Pats played their worst game by far of the season, in Pittsburgh, and had the ball down 6 with a chance to win at the end of the game. And then lost on an illegal safety.

    Let's not crown the Steelers just yet.

    As opposed to a "legal" safety? :confused:

    Yup
    I suspect the AFC is far more in question that that sounds...after seeing the Colts come back very quickly on the Patriots, and the inconsistency of the Ravens this year...hard to be all that confident in those results.

    Meaning that Polamalu should have been flagged on the play (for punching the ball through the end zone) and the safety should not have been allowed. The Patriots should have retained the ball.

    Don't read too much into the last 6 minutes of the Pats/Colts game. The game was long since wrapped up and the defense played like that. They've played much better defense the last 4 or 5 weeks, and still rank in the top third of the league in points allowed (the only stat the truly matters).

    Also, their fifth or sixth receiver and special teams captain played all but three snaps on defense in the Indy game. Those would be his first defensive snaps ever. Until their defensive backfield gets healthy, it's hard to judge them too harshly.

    Obvously their offense is great, and much better than their defense, but the defense should be good enough when healthy to go far in the playoffs.

    Whoever called them the GB of the AFC was pretty close to the mark.
