Ravens might not make playoffs????

Baltimore clinches AFC North division with:

1) BAL win + PIT loss + CIN loss

Baltimore clinches a playoff spot with:

1) BAL win + PIT loss or tie OR

2) BAL win + CIN loss or tie OR

3) BAL tie + PIT loss + CIN loss

Probably they will not have a first round bye but they are almost a lock to be in the playoffs... sometimes you just create threads without thinking a lot or doing a little bit of research

They will beat the Redskins and Giants, not sure about Bengals because divisional road games are tougher.

Can't see them losing 5 straight. They'll make it. Although that is a tough schedule

My bet is we play either Baltimore or Denver on the road first round. I'd rather it be Baltimore.

If Baltimore beats Denver, we face Denver. If Denver beats Baltimore, we probably face Baltimore. That game probably holds the key between the Ravens getting a No.2 seed or going down all the way to No.4, IMO.

So Ravens just need one win out of their last 4 games. Period. And they're in. well, and await the official results of week 16.

the redskins??? lol i doubt that. they have so much momentum after winning 3 straight games all against their divisional opponents to get back into the division championship race. Ravens are going to fall apart after losing suggs. Lewis cant get back fast enough for them.

Plus, Steelers could be getting Big Ben and Polamalu back but be without Ike Taylor for a while. :)

Anything can happen. If we do make it, it's highly possible the Steelers could still pass us to get to #5. When you play with the playoff generator, if a group of teams finish at 12-4, the seeds jump around from 1-6, depending upon who the teams beat.

I think it's a given that the Ravens will limp into the playoffs. And hopefully a team limping into the playoffs will be ripe for the picking for a young team that is playing their hearts out. Of all the teams we would travel to I would prefer the Ravens. IMHO it's the only one (barring something crazy like a major injury to another team) that we have a chance to win on the road.

Hey, if the Colts win out, the Patriots lose to Houston and another team, the Broncos lose a game, Houston loses to Minnesota, and Baltimore loses two, the Colts are the #1 seed.

So, you're telling me there's a chance.

All jokes aside this scenario can actually happen if we can take care of business..

Pats play Texans and 49ers..I count those those games as a lost

Ravens will play Redskins. Broncos, Giants, and Bengals..no way they don't lose more than 1 game along the way..

Minnesota could still have something to play for by the time they face Houston so I expect them to play their hearts out..

Only problem is I don't see the Broncos losing a game..

If you take the Colts playoff chances * Pi / half the quantam mechanics uncertainty principle into the Nash Equilibrium + Morgan Freeman rounded up to alpha the hypothesis agrees that the Colts will make the playoffs and that Tim Tebow is an alien.

Come on, the Ravens have a tight grip on that division. They aren't missing the playoffs, especially with Ray coming back in 2 wekes.

Ravens are not playing very well right now, but the Skins and Giants did not show anything Monday night to make me think that the Ravens could not beat either of those teams. On the other hand, with the way the Ravens are having trouble scoring, they could also lose to either one, and there is always a chance the Giants suddenly flip that switch we all know they have and start playing lights out football (although they certainly weren't Monday night). That said, as others have pointed out, the Ravens really only need one more win to get into the playoffs, and I think it is safe to assume they will get it somewhere. Out of any of the possible playoff teams that the Colts could face, the Ravens are probably our best bet for a win, and that is including the Steelers and Bengals IMO.

Do the Bengals have a good defense? If the Colts played them could we expect a shootout like Detroit?

I doubt the Ravens will beat the Giants either. I could be wrong, though.

I completely agree! The Ravens will pick up one more win and make the playoffs. Also, I believe they really would be the best matchup for the colts. Their D is nowhere near the vaunted Raven's D of old in passing or rushing. I feel confident that Luck could move the ball with relative ease. Additionally, I really don't fear their O one bit. Flacco is a game manager, nothing more (not even a very good one imo). Not to mention, we will hopefully have the X factor of Pagano back on the sidelines. I'm sure he could share some insights within the club about tendencies.

yeah i do think so. the defense is more then likely with out Suggs, AND Lewis not to mention the skins know they basically gotta win their last 4 games to win the division. their playing at the same level as the giants did last year in their final 6 games. alot of people are underestimating RG3 and his ability to keep plays alive. he is a game changer and he is making his team better. there is no denying that the redskins are playing at a higher level since their bye week. and having pierre garcon back has helped them that much more also.

      Between the thread title and the OP's first post,  as well as the other posts the question being asked (and reason for the thread) is obvious. 
    • Seen Any Good Movies Lately? Rental Or New Release...Share Your Insights/Reviews Please...
      Did you ever watch a dark romantic comedy that just collapsed or imploded on it's own face? Well, I just did & this epic 2015 disaster is called appropriately "Trainwreck." Hey, look on the bright side, it's known as foreshadowing right? For starters, this 2 hour & 4 minute picture directed by Judd Apatow is too darn long. Second, in the interest of full disclosure, I have never found comedian Amy Schumer funny. I have listened to some of her standup routine & I stare at my watch waiting for an eternity for her to say anything remotely humorous. It's admirable that she tries to address the concerns of women that are full figured with meat on their bones wider than a supermodel toothpick sure. However, she's just not a woman who has ever made me laugh. Plus, Amy's dialog in this flick is too sexually centered in scope with almost nothing else redeeming about her character. Just in case you were wondering, yes Amy is related to NY Senator Chuck Schumer in real life too. Third, Amy's co-star in this film Bill Hader gave a much better performance in "The Skeleton Twins" than this piece of trash. Fourth, director Judd Apatow known for the tremendous TV show 'Freaks & Geeks' completely missed the mark here. The script is too predicable & can be seen from a mile away. Judd you're so much better than crap like this man come on dude seriously.    This flick is like a raunchy version of "When Harry Met Sally" except without the sharp wit of Meg Ryan & Billy Crystal. Only this time, the opposites attract are between a doctor & a writer for a tabloid magazine like Cosmopolitan filled with articles about sports, finding the perfect mate, & favorite sexual positions etc. etc.    Plotline: Amy Townsend [Amy Schumer]  lives in the Big Apple as a writer for a pathetic relationship ship magazine. Hey, since her character's last name is Townsend, does that mean she is the offspring of Who guitarist Pete Townsend? No, but it's the 1st question that popped into my head though. Amy sleeps around a lot & she basically an alcoholic. There's a reason for that. At a young age, she had her father Gordon [Colin Quinn] explain to her & her sibling Kim [Brie Larson] why their parents were breaking up & getting a divorce. Basically, Gordon used a doll analogy to tell his girls that he cheated on their mother, got thrown out the house, & that a committed relationship with 1 other person for a long time was unnatural & should be avoided at all costs.    Because of this misguided pearl of wisdom, Amy went thru a number of 1 night stands like chewing gum. Her sister Kim chose to settle down, buy a house, get married & have a son. All that changed for Amy when she is forced to do a feature magazine article on the sports medicine doctor & flawless surgeon to superstar athletes like Lebron James & Amar'e Stoudemire named Dr. Aaron Conners [Bill Hader]. Thru the course of writing the article, Dr. Conners & Amy do sleep together, but she is petrified because she has never dated such a smart & kind boyfriend before. She starts to feel genuinely happy for the 1st time in her life so Amy decides to sabotage the chemistry they have together by blowing Aaron off to take a call from her editor as he is giving a speech accepting a prestigious award for his charity work as a member of Doctors Without Borders giving life saving medical care to the poor & disadvantaged in war torn countries abroad.    As a result, Amy fights with Aaron wondering why such a sweet, well adjusted guy likes & even claims to love her. They argue throughout the night, which prevents Dr. Conners from being able to carry out a vital knee surgery the next day. They decide to part ways & shortly thereafter Kim sadly informs her sister that their beloved father Gordon has passed away. This earth shattering news forces Amy to stop drinking, refrain from smoking pot anymore, & she gets Dr. Conners feature article spotlighted in a reputable periodical called Vanity Fair. Amy mails a copy of the magazine directed to Aaron's team office for the NY Knicks & this noble gesture prompts Dr. Conners to start seeing Miss Townsend socially again. Amy ultimately wins her man back by doing a cheerleader floor routine on the court at Madison Square Garden. She fails to use a trampoline properly, but it's okay because this athletic blunder cements their romantic relationship permanently.    There is some nice cameo work by Lebron James in this picture. Both he & Bill Hader have some comical brief moments together interacting on & off the basketball court like 2 brothers watching each other's back even though they are not blood relatives perse.    How do I grade "Trainwreck" as a film? The plot had no twists or turns in it, I just don't find Amy Schumer lovable as a character in any way, shape, or form, there were a couple of memorable lines in it that I can't repeat on a PG based family  forum,  & as a completed work there was virtually no depth or lasting gravity here. In addition there is a sex scene with an underaged magazine intern employee that quite frankly didn't need to be seen or acted out at all IMO. Very tasteless. I get why it used as a mechanism to get Amy fired in the storyline, but it was beyond stupid & totally unnecessary for a widespread audience to visualize up close & personal. I was gonna give this picture an F, but since I enjoyed watching LeBron James & Bill Hader toy with 1 another on screen, I will bump my grade up to a D-. Like the title suggests, skip this 'Trainwreck' at any & all costs.
