NFL Week 16 Ravens Power Rankings: The mighty continue to fall

A loss to the Kansas City Chiefs puts the Ravens at 4-10 and on the path to tying the franchise's worst record in it's 20 year existence; 4-12. The loss to the Chiefs makes it back-to-back games with losses of 20+ points, a dramatic change from a Ravens team that had kept all it's games within 8 points before that point. As things continue to slide further away from a team that expected to be in play for the Super Bowl this season, they have no choice but to fall in the power rankings this week.

Kamar Aiken wasn't expected to be a huge part of the Ravens' offense this season but has done well with Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman out. His eight-catch, 128-yard day Sunday puts him at 62 catches and 802 yards for the season. Nice job taking advantage of an opportunity.

The Ravens have to start thinking about the 2016 season and their first order of business should be finding an elite pass rusher. It may be hard to count on Terrell Suggs, who will be coming off an Achilles injury, to be 100 percent

Maybe the one-score losses were a bit more fun. Those unis, though ... if Dijon mustard and baby puke had a kid, it would be the Ravens' pants. But tell you what: That Kamar Aiken has made plays for this team. The 2015 Ravens obviously are going nowhere, but Aiken is certainly a piece that Ozzie Newsome and company can build upon. That's all we got.
