While the Ravens are defying expectations, and should play well enough to make the playoffs, I think the road after that point makes the superbowl unlikely. The ravens haven't beaten the better teams they have faced. They have feasted on the weaker teams. But when they faced indy or NYG, it was a blowout. Those are the kind of teams the Ravens are going to have to beat before you can talk superbowl. So talking about Ravens as a playoff team, sure. But superbowl? We haven't seen that level of play yet.

Does this guy even follow the Ravens? The skins game is at their stadium not ours.

Throw all that crap right out the window, if you knew anything about sports or football all that you just wrote is hogwash , you have to go out and ply and you never know what will happen with any given team, teams get up for certain and some teams come out flat for various reasons, I guess that os why most writers write because they could not play, and it seems awfuly hard to imagine Preston ever played with some of the supid crap he writes and also if he really doesn't like what you say he will not post it!

I think we will beat the Steelers. We should have beat them last time and they haven't improved since then. Aside from injuries I think we are a better time now.

I think we beat the Squeelers. Played in their home, lost b/c of refs and in OT no less. Now we have Home Field Advantage and we got their # and even more experience under our belt. Plus, look at the teams they have beaten and lost to. Their toughest part of the schedule is coming up. They are coming to see us after they play New England and Dalls. Nah, they are not the best AFC has to offer ... Jets, Patriots, Titans, Colts, RAVENS .. and we are a better team and will win.

The Squealers haven't won in the last five games in Baltimore...make that six after December 14th.

There is no logic in picking the Steelers to beat the Ravens in our house. Have you seen the Steelers games at home the past several years? In case you haven't, we usually win. I agree that the Steelers defense is very good, but its offense is erratic. Your other picks look correct, but with the Ravens getting better as the season moves on, we figure to go 4-1 from here on out and finish 11-5.

Those predictions are logical and may come true, but the games have to be played, and the football is known for taking funny bounces. I sure would like to see them beat the Cowboys though; jeez I cannot stand that team.

I do feel a little bit sad, though, when the Ravens win, just picturing the nattering nabobs of negativism in this comment area moping around with nothing to complain about. These guys have so much invested in pointing out how bad the players are and which players should be out there instead, and how inept the coaches are and what they should have called instead, and how stupid the team executives are and what these experts in front of their TVs would have done instead. It is so important to them to pump themselves up by running others down that it is a little selfish of us who enjoy winning to have it our way. But fortunately for these guys, only one team ends the season as champions, so sooner or later they will get their chance to bit ch and complain and be right about how awful the Ravens are.

4 outa 5 wins gets us in playoffs and hosts a game in January. Maybe a Colts vs. Ravens playoffs? Payback is best served in January!

Super Bowl contenders??! Come on, the only team OVER 500 they've beaten were the Eagles, who tied the Bengals the week prior? How about the stomping they had against the Giants and the Colts? Are these games being taken into consideration? Not to mention, if the Ravens take on the Jets, Patriots,Colts,Titans or Steelers, are you confident that they are going to win these games?

Come on, be realistic.

The Ravens will not be sweeped by the Steelers...I can see them losing to the bengals(by under estimating them) rather then the Steelers.

We'll beat the Cowboys. I think that after the Giants debacle, the Ravens have a mindset that they need to show they can beat NFC East teams. And aside from the Giants I don't think the Cowboys have played any stellar defenses like the Ravens.

The Steelers game comes down to how banged up our O-line is at the time, as Flacco will certainly need good pass protection that game and we'll need to open up running lanes.

Hey give the guy a break, he realized he screwed up and even changed his name to "Dumb Guy" in the very next post. Have you never made a mistake?

Super Bowl contenders? You must be smokin' some Whacko Flacco Tobacco.

Next two games will tell us a great deal as to how much Harbaugh has been able to change the culture on the team. Will they overlook a dismal Bengals opponent on the road? Will they lay an egg in their all-black unis in prime time against the Skins?

It's seems to me that the majority of the people here are worried about the Steeler game. Let's not forget there are 2 games to play before the 14th. That game won't mean s*it if we don't win the next 2. You can't anything for granted in this league. Let's worry about Cin. first.

We better get past Pitt. for the division.The Colts have an unbelievably easy last few games & will have the wildcard.Right now it's looking like Ravens vs. Colts in Indy.Bad news!!! Lets finish strong!!!

They have beaten the Steelers 3 out of the last 5 games! Bareley lost in Pittsburg this year and Flacco has improved greatly since. How this is projected as a loss is odd to say the least.
Cinn. is always a pain in the --- isn't it?
