SB Nation has put out their NFL Power Rankings based on the aggregate opinions of all 32 of the network's NFL bloggers, including Baltimore Beatdown. They had each blogger rank the teams from 1-32 and then came up with an average position for each team. Despite not winning nor even reaching the Super Bowl, it still is no surprise that the Green Bay Packers took the top spot.
The Baltimore Ravens came in at #6, but while that seems a bit too low, it is the teamahead of them that has me scratching my head. Even though the Ravens defeated the Houston Texans twice last year, including the Divisional Round of the 2012 playoffs, the average opinion of the other 31 bloggers ended up with them claiming the #5 spot.
Here's what I said about the Ravens in my synopsis for the story.:
In the effort of full disclosure, I had the Ravens ranked #4, behind in order, the Packers, New England Patriots, New York Giants, and just ahead of the San Francisco 49ers.
What do you think about the #6 ranking of the Baltimore Ravens in SB Nation's NFL Power Rankings?
Too low, they should be ranked higher than #6 (78 votes)
Too high, they should be ranked lower than #6 (25 votes)
Seems about right to me. (73 votes)
