Ravens playoff motto: one down, two to go

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

No, the Ravens will not be deemed, “King in the North” this season; yet they still can arrive in the postseason, go into enemy territory, and fight for the coveted Lombardi Trophy. But before that’s in the minds of the Baltimore Ravens, and their fans, it’s more about what’s going on this week.

The Browns were easily defeated on Sunday. Though there was panic when Cleveland drove 96 yards for the touchdown, and led the Ravens 3-7 early in the second quarter, the Ravens demonstrated their strength on defense with four turnovers, including a strip-sack recovered for a touchdown in the back of the endzone by Brandon Williams.

Now, the Ravens are ready for their next challenge, the Indianapolis Colts. Great news, the Ravens aren’t on the road, either. For the final two games, they stay at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Ravens opened as 13.5 point favorites, and it’s great when Las Vegas is this confident. But it’s not about the odds or the pre-game numbers. It’s about the game, and the Ravens aren’t overlooking their opponent. As every player has said, this is a week-by-week game, and they are focused on the upcoming opponent, not the post-season.
