The Ravens schedule is jam packed with divisional games early. How important will it be for them to start winning these games, especially with the loss against the Bengals?
The good news is the Steelers are 0-1-1 and so are the Browns. The bad news is the Ravens had a huge chance to be the front runner of the division and they gave it to the Bengals. The division games are critically important, because the division is up for grabs.
The Bengals are going to come back down to earth. They beat the Ravens when they slept walked on the field for a half and a bad Colts team. The Steelers are a hot mess. If the Steelers lose a tough game against the Buccaneers, the Ravens have a chance to bury Pittsburgh in week 4. That would be like every holiday mixed into one with more smiles in Maryland than you’ve ever seen.
The division games are important, because at the end of the day, good teams win them. Playoff teams, take care of business. The Steelers are a huge test no matter what their record is, and it’s doubtful they’ll stay down forever. The Browns are a lot better than they have been. Baltimore needs to go at a minimum 4-2 in the division and they are off to an 0-1 start against the AFC North.
