BALTIMORE -- Can somebody figure out the Baltimore Ravens team, please?

Maybe all they need to play better is to see good teams on their schedule. A week after being blown out by the Seattle Seahawks, the Ravens bounced back by beating the Cincinnati Bengals 31-24 Sunday.

The inconsistent Ravens hung on for dear life as Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton made it interesting with a big fourth quarter, but his rally fell just short.

The Ravens are now 7-3 and tied with Pittsburgh in the AFC North. But it sure wasn't easy. The Ravens had to have a late stop inside the 10 to hold on for the victory.

Isn't that the Ravens, so good for a while and then so bad?

Anybody have a grasp about this team? Anybody?

Who are the Ravens?

LOL @ the Ravens fans! Are you guys SO INSECURE, that each of you has to point out to Pete a tiebreaker! I guess that's what comes of the Ravens being the Steelers pet for so many years. LOL!

Who are the Ravens?

The Ravens are a vetern ball club but do not appear to be ready to play. John Harbaugh and the coaches have to make sure their team is ready to play and I have not seen that at times this year. The running game has looked lost because they are passing too much. With an inconsistant QB in Joe Flacco, they should be running the ball more. Ray Rice is their best offensive weapon so use him to your own advantage. Defensively, they played good when they had to. Giving up 400 plus yards is terrible especially if they are the #2 defense in the NFL. I still thing that Sam Koch and Billy Cundiff are the best kicking tandem in the NFL and they are the leaders of the special teams. The return game is not there. They do not have that single returner that they need and that will hurt some. It really comes down to being prepared to play and the willingness to give more than 100%. I just don't see that and the coaches should really be the ones to blame for it.

They were blown out. 5 points doesn't reflect how bad this game was. The last TD is a garbage time TD.

    "Blown out" by Seattle?!?  They lost by 5 points!  The Ravens are the 1st place team in the AFC North and they hold all the tiebreakers right now.

Uh, the Ravens are tied with the Steelers, but hold the tie breaker after beating the Pittsburgh crew twice. And the Bengals already have a loss to the Steelers (and in the AFC North). I expect more from you, Pete. Accuracy before speed, please. Of course, accuracy and speed meant another Flacco-Torrey Smith bomb for 6.

Who are the Ravens?

I know who they are? Leaders of the AFC North, not a game behind the Steelers.

you know the ravens are tied with pittsburgh by record, and have the tiebreaker, thus are ahead of them. and a big part of it is that the ravens don't travel well this year.
