Given the teams that the Bengals still have to play, they could lose the next 3 and be 8-7 heading into the final game of the season against the Ravens. The Ravens could also be 8-7. So it looks like it could all boil down to the last game of the season, which is fitting. (Have to give props to the schedule makers.) And if Pitta comes back, along with some other factors, the Ravens could very well end up winning the AFC North. Wouldn't that be a hoot?

Still a big "if", but that's exactly what I was thinking last night.  If Pitta comes back, he gives the Ravens another reliable target in the redzone.  His return would help turn some of these FGs into TDs.

I'll say this...IF the Ravens win the division, and despite the fact that I firmly believe that Harbaugh and his coaching staff are responsible for the lousy start to the season, I will have no choice but to get off his case. (And you can put this in a time capsule and use it any time you want to hold me to it.)

Ain't going to happen. I do not see the Ravens beating the Lions or the Pats.

I think I might have put the wrong W/L projection in my original post, because I don't see them beating the Lions or the Pats either. So that would leave each team with a 7-8 record heading into the final game of the season. Still...that would give the Ravens the opportunity to win the division with an 8-8 record.

Exactly those teams do what ours doesn't. Score TDs. At this point I wouldn't even bet on them beating Minny

It may be a long shot at this point (due to the Lions and the Pats) but I bet there is no team in the NFL that wants to see the Ravens in the playoffs. Their history shows that is just when they're getting going.

I remember an earlier thread where I predicted an 8-8 finish while everybody else thought I was an optimist and that a 6-10 finish was more likely. I stand by 8-8. They will beat Minnesota at home, but lose to Detroit on the road. The Ravens are a very different road team. Detroit presents real problems for them since they can score a lot of points and are at home. The Ravens don't match up well with teams that are explosive like Detroit. The next game is New England and can be problematic as well. But it is at home so I expect the Ravens "A" game on that one. Whether it is enough or not we shall see. If they win that game, the Cincinnati game in the finale might be for the division, but it is away so I think Cincy takes it. If they lose to New England, Cincy might be locked in so the Ravens might win that game because Cincy will rest everyone. As for Cincinnati, this week is probably their critical game. They can beat San Diego, and if they might need to win that. They still have Minnesota at home which is likely a win. They have to go to Pittsburgh which could be a problem. If they beat San Diego and Minnesota, that gets them to 9 wins and probably gives the the division.
You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill.

I'll take that bet. Pitta will return for the NE game.

With the way the AFC is shaping up 8-8 may get us in. I prefer 9-7, but am just saying. Not only that, I think us going to Indy or Cincy for the first round game is a favorable matchup. This is the time of the year where Joe Cool has earned his money in the past.

Assuming he's completely healthy? There's no guarantee you're getting a pre injury Pitta
