We have a big time game ahead of us, and I'm not sure I've ever felt so good about a Ravens game in my life. Yes, we have some injuries (Coates and Green are officially Doubtful, Tuitt is Questionable), but Baltimore's offense, and specifically Joe "guys I swear I'm elite" Flacco, scares no one and their defense, while top notch, is going to be missing their best CB, Jimmy Smith. Meaning Rookie Tavon Young, who's been solid but is still a rookie, and Shareece Wright, who has given up 6 TDs in Baltimore's last 10 games, will be their starting CBs. We have to take advantage of that. If the O line holds up against Baltimore's pass rush, and can provide even a little push in the run game for Bell, I don't see us having any trouble putting points on the board.
The biggest factor here, IMO, is that this game is at Heinz Field. I would not being confident at all if this game were in Baltimore given Ben's road woes this season. I expect Big Ben and the offense to put up some points....

Not that i put much weight on a pro bowl selection, i must admit that I thought for certain that Shazier was a lock to make it.

I'm not sure if you guys have seen/read this article, so i'll post the link below:
Within the article, ProFootball Focus lists the top 16 worst picks in the 2016 draft. I find it interesting that Artie Burns (#6) and Sean Davis (#10) are on the list, as well as a few other rookies having very good seasons (Eli Apple, Keanu Neal, Deion Jones, Derrick Henry, etc.).
I know the season and the careers of these players are still young, but in my opinion, PFF so far has missed on at least 6 of the 16.
Best We Could Achieve
Technically, we still have a long shot at the number 2 seed. It would require us to win out and both KC and Oak lose 2 of their 3 final games. KC has Tenn, Den, and @ SD while Oak has @ SD, Indy, and @ Den.
Not impossible odds, but still quite a long shot.
NE did us an obvious favor by beating the Purple Browns. It still likely comes down to Christmas Day though.
We win the division if we win 2 of our final 3 as long as one of the wins is against B'more.
If we lose to the Bengals and they beat the Eagles, virtually nothing changes. So, no jumping off buildings if we lose to a team that would love nothing more than to beat us. ;-) The hatred is real and they will give everything. I am more concerned about coming out of the game healthy than winning.
If we win and B'more wins, pretty much the same thing.
If we win and B'more loses to the Eagles, the division is all but ours. We could lose on Christmas and still only...
The Depot has an article about Bell as an MVP candidate, which got me thinking.
Just curious. What RB from the present or past is the best comparison for Bell? I have seen some compare him to Sanders, but I think it is superficial at best. I am not sure I have ever seen that combination of size, power, patience, blocking, catching.
I can't really think of one I am comfortable with.
