Since the Ravens limped into the bye at 5-2, the Steelers who were 2 1/2 games behind us are now only one game behind at 4-3 second in the AFC North. Although the Ravens have the second best record in the AFC, they are certainly not the second best team in the AFC.
With injuries plaguing the team, horrible defensive play and erratic play by Joe Flacco; this team better get it together. It isn’t going to get much easier. The Ravens play the Browns in Cleveland, and the Raiders at M&T Bank Stadium over the next two weeks. They will play the Steelers on Sunday Night, November 18, 2012. The next two games are “winnable” games. Assuming the Ravens win the next two and the Steelers (at New York Giants & home against KC) do the same; that Sunday Night game will be the AFC North Division lead.
At the beginning of the season, I predicted the Bengals winning the north. But seeing how this season is shaping, it appears the Bengals are fading, Ravens are dying, and the Steelers are surging. The black & gold looked silly in their striped jerseys on Sunday, but they looked good. WATCH OUT FOR PITTSBURGH!!!
In regards to the San Francisco Giants winning the World Series, they completed the four corners of the continental United States. The day after the LA Kings won the Stanley Cup, I raised the question of who would win the World Series. The New York Giants won the Super Bowl in January, Miami Heat NBA Title in June, and LA Kings won the Stanley Cup in June as well. In my June blog I raised the question about where the World Series winner will be geographically. In order for all four corners of the United States to be represented, the A’s Giants or Mariners would have to win the series. The New York Giants represented the Northeast, Miami Heat the Southeast, Kings Southwest and San Francisco Giants the Northwest. Thus all four corners of the United States are represented.
And finally may God keep all safe in this time of Hurricane Sandy. Stay safe all, stay well……………………
