Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

16. Baltimore Ravens (LW: 15)

With the Ravens’ two-touchdown victory against the Titans in Week 10, they stopped what could have been a deadly slide in the cannibalistic AFC North. A 6-4 record is typically the minimum desired output after ten games, but the Ravens find themselves behind THREE teams in the division, and losing a tiebreaker to the Bengals. They only have one division game remaining – Week 17 against the Browns — so they will need to make up ground beforehand to have any chance at climbing out of the hole they put themselves into. Keep in mind that ‘the hole’ in which Baltimore currently find itself is due more to the nature of the powerful AFC North this season than anything else.
