NFL Week 15 power rankings: Where should the Ravens rank?

Larry French

Winners of three in a row, where do the Ravens deserve to be ranked this week?

It's never pretty with the Ravens. It's never easy either.

But the Ravens' early misfortunes this season have seemingly been reversed, with the club winning their last three games in a row. Sure, all three wins came at home, but wins are wins in this league. You'll take them any way you get them at any venue you play them.

The Ravens still have their flaws — an inconsistent offense with a defense that has issues late in games. But there are still three weeks until the postseason. Some of those problems can be corrected and the Ravens are definitely trending in the right direction.

The running game, albeit against a struggling Minnesota front seven, had some success in the second half. Ray Rice had 109 total yards, and if he can become more involved as a receiver, that should open this offense further.

By the end of this day, I expect most of the media outlets out there to move the Ravens even closer to the top 12. Most sites had them on the cusp last week.

We'll see if that changes this week.

For the morning, here's your chance to vote where the Ravens should rank.
