    I'll check that one out, thanks. The one thing I dont like about Ken Burns's is it so NY based. Yankees, Dodgers and Giants and Red Sox are like the only team that existed in some of the episodes. He did a a good job covering the early years of baseball however, and Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey's impact.

Todays Reed recovery should have stayed Ravens ball, wasnt conclusive enough to CHANGE it.
    Ok, I'll agree with that. It is getting harder to watch.

    The reality is that one more win and the Ravens win the AFCN. 10 wins guarantees us the division. 1 more loss by each of the Steelers and Bengals also carries the same effect as well. We have all head-to-head tiebreakers against CINCY (division record) and Pittsburgh (6 conference losses versus Ravens 2 conference losses and maximum of 4 conference losses). The only way the Ravens are not hosting a playoff game this year is to lose out while the winner of the Cincy/Pittsburgh game wins out.

    What's interesting is that its possible that the Ravens could knock the steelers out of the playoffs by losing to cincy the last game of the season.

    So the Ravens are one win away or one loss away by Steelers and Bengals from clinching the AFC North? If that happens next week, that would mean two weeks to rest the weary for the playoffs. It's like two bye weeks in the playoffs.

    Thanks. So let's start rooting for Dallas, because the Bengals will most likely lose at Pitt.

    Except if New England loses to Houston tomorrow and we beat Denver next week (clinching the AFC North), we can still get the #2 seed and a bye if we win the last two. No way we rest if that is the case.

    We might rest the last game of the season if the only thing that is possible for us is the #3 or #4 seed (not much if any difference between them, in fact one could argue the #4 seed is better because it will likely mean facing the Colts instead of either Cincy or Pitt).

    What if by Miracle Ravens win out but NE beats Houston but lose to SF and Denver wins out after losing to Ravens? Who is number 2?

    It won't be long until the NFFL (National Flag Football League). I could not believe that they called a penalty on Ngata for pushing RG3 in the chest. The NFL until Goodall has lost it's way.

    Same thing, we do. I should have said if New England loses this week or next and we beat Denver (in terms of making a decision on resting for the last two weeks).

    If we beat Denver and we finish with the same record as Denver and New England, we get the #2 seed because of head-to-head sweep of both of them.

    They're gonna back into the postseason. The only scenario that shuts them out is one where the CIN@PGH game in Week 16 ends in a tie (& each wins its other 2 games & the Ravens lose out). Over the last 10 years there have been exactly 2 ties in over 2,560 games. Do the math.

    The odds are very long but nowhere near as long as the odds implied by those numbers because of the OT rule changes. We will be seeing many more ties going forward than we did when OT was sudden death. Count on it.
