Ugly wins still count as wins

Lucky for the Ravens, it didn’t matter much which team showed up to play last night. 16-0 over a terrible team is still a win, even if it wasn’t a stellar performance.

The D looked better, but it’s the Browns. The offense looked terrible. I hope it’s a strategy to either try some new things out that didn’t work, or keep some things off film for the next few games. I guess we’ll see. Give some credit to the Browns defense, they played pretty well.

Hauschka is gone – I don’t know if that’s the right move or not, but we do now know that letting Stover go was a mistake. This team is 6-3 if Stover’s on the team, and that one win might be the one they need in January.

If the team that showed up to play last night shows up on Sunday, it’s going to be a rough day. But if the team that beat the Broncos shows, we could have some optimism for another week.

I think they will need to finish 11-5 to make it into the playoffs (I’m afraid 10-6 might not cut it, although they do have a tiebreaker over the Chargers and Broncos), and that’s going to take a win over Indy, a win over Green Bay, and splitting the series with the Steelers.
