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..

Ravens just need one win to make it... Cincy and the Steelers play each other, so.... all they have to do is eek out a win against the Skins or Giants and they are automatically in

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.

If ravens lose out which is possible and steelers and bengals go 10-6. The ravens don't make it I can see a scenerio if the ravens lose to the redskins and get beat by broncos and giants they may need tobeat bengals to get in playoffs

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.

    • Yeah that can ruin a season. Rodgers is the best in the buz IMO
    • Wondering ;  Could the acquiring team agree to eat all or part of the dead cap as part of the trade?  If they have the space I don't see why not.  It's not like they have to resign Luck. 
    • This particular game may be the easiest one left on the schedule, so a win should be likely. However, the Jags are a better matchup against us than most people realize. Their defense is 100% legit now, it will make life very difficult for Brissett, he may not throw any tds Sunday. If we use Gore and Mack very effectively, use a 50/50 split along with passes sprinkled in, we can move the ball on the Jags. However, this will have to be done with laser like precision, which I don't trust the coaching staff to do. Fournette and Ivory will do well in the running and pass game, Bortles will look better than he really is, and the Jags will hold our offense to around 14 points IMO.   Jags 24 Colts 14
    • With you guys with your situation with Andrew Luck compared to our situation with Rodgers. Our season is over here too. Hope you guys get Luck back soon.
    • Hmmm...this is the kind of dangerous reasoning that will have Irsay giving Chuck Pagano another pass.  The team just isn't good enough yet? No...I would argue that talent wise this is a better team than last year. We have upgraded the defensive front and added younger and better talent in the secondary.  Offensively...We have been hit by injury.  Most notably Luck.  But we have added a capable back up QB who is competent enough to put this team in position to win games.  That is an upgrade over Tolzien. We have added a young playmaking running back with explosiveness in Mack. Our receivers are mainly the same but their production is falling off, perhaps it's due to Luck's absence and the process of adjusting to a new signal caller.  But essentially talent is there and in many ways this team has been upgraded over last year.  Chuck and this coaching staff must be held accountable when they consistently do not put this team in the best situation to play to their strengths and succeed.  Mack is being underutilized.  Last week was a joke.  He is one of the most explosive weapons on this offense outside of T.Y. and this staff needs to come up with creative ways of getting him on the field more.  Secondly, our secondary's strength is man coverage yet we consistently are playing lots of zone schemes which we are not good at...particularly in the second half while trying to protect leads. These coaches have to let this young defense play aggressively.  They will make some mistakes but they will also make big plays and at least keep their foot on the throttle.  When they do...we are in games.  When we shrink back we have second half collapses and so called choke jobs.  It is not just that the team is not good enough yet.  Our coaches need to play to our strengths more to give us a better chance at success.  We have lost two winnable games because of gutless coaching in my opinion...the Cardinals and Titans games were both winnable.  Offensively we turtled up.  Defensively we slacked off into zone.  This "not good enough" team could be 4-2 instead of 2-4 with better coaching decisions and second half adjustments.    You know I love ya New Colts but had to jump in with my take on this buddy.
