And I know this a big what if game and what not but I say this mainly because if Ben Roethlisberger plays in that game in Baltimore the Steelers lost in overtime on the Sunday night instead of Dennis Dixon who did play well dont get me wrong but was still eratic in the 2nd half and in overtime when he threw the pic, if Ben plays in that game the Steelers win by at least a TD and the Ravens finish 8-8 and dont make the playoffs. They can also thank the Steelers for completely imploding in the games against the Chiefs,Raiders,and Browns because had they won all of them or even 2 of the 3 like they were suppose too the Ravens even if they do finish 9-7 are on the outside looking in because the Jets had the tiebraker over them at 9-7.
So while the Ravens played a good game against a very overrated Pats team yesterday and looked pretty good I think their run ends in Indy on Saturday night when they have to face Peyton Manning. Joe Flacco will not be able to throw for 39 yards in this game like he did yesterday and expect to win against Peyton and the Colts it just wont happen. It's just very frustrating to see the Ravens moving on to the final 4 of the AFC when the Steelers I believe are clearly a better football team overall then the Ravens and the only reason the Ravens made the playoffs in the first place is because of the Steelers imploding in those 3 losses to KC,Oak,and Cleveland, and Dixon being the QB that Sunday night game in Baltimore.
