Robert Griffin III appears to be down, but not out, after suffering a knee injury in Sunday’s win over Baltimore. The same could not be said of the Ravens, however, who could be out of the playoff picture altogether if they can’t find a way to stop their losing skid.
After looking like one of the best teams in the AFC for the first part of the season, Joe Flacco‘s unit has sputtered lately while dropping games to the Steelers and the Redskins.
Now, with games against the Broncos, Giants and Bengals to close their season out, the Ravens could be facing some serious pressure to stay atop the AFC North — a pretty surprising thing to consider for a team that looked like one of the conference’s best not so long ago.
Of course, that was only one of many surprises in the NFL from Week 14, which also saw the Eagles snap their eight-game losing streak and the Packers escape the Lions at snowy Lambeau Field thanks to some big help from their defense. Which, all things considered, makes it just another week in the National Football League.
