The defending Super Bowl champions are riding their first winning streak since September, a two-game run that has put them atop the scramble for the AFC's second wild-card slot. Baltimore and Miami are both 6-6, but the Ravens own the tiebreaker by virtue of their 26-23 victory over the Dolphins in October.
A game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens usually features hard hits, flying helmets and a pivotal play in the final minutes. The clash between these AFC North rivals on Thursday night had all that — and so much more.
The last time the Baltimore Ravens played on Thanksgiving, coach John Harbaugh gathered the family together for a game against brother Jim and the San Francisco 49ers. Two years later, Harbaugh and the Ravens will spend the holiday with their most bitter rival.
Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco hates his team's use of the wildcat formation, and Tuesday he let everyone know just how much.
Flacco said Tuesday, "I don't like that stuff. ... I'm the quarterback. I want to be behind the line of scrimmage, I want to be taking the snaps."
Joe Flacco threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones, Justin Tucker kicked four field goals and the Ravens shut down the sputtering offense of the New York Jets in a 19-3 victory Sunday.
Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta returned to the practice field Wednesday, nearly four months after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured and dislocated hip.
It's been this kind of season for the defending Super Bowl champs: A tough-to-take overtime loss in Chicago became even more painful for the Baltimore Ravens when general manager Ozzie Newsome became too ill to take the flight home.
They committed three turnovers, blew a 17-point lead and gave up a long touchdown pass on the final play of regulation. And still, the defending Super Bowl champions prevailed, as Justin Tucker kicked a 46-yard field goal with 5:27 left in overtime to give Baltimore a 20-17 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.
The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens are wobbling. Cleveland's Jason Campbell threw three touchdown passes — two to Davone Bess — and the Browns ended an 11-game losing streak against Baltimore, beating the Ravens 24-18 on Sunday.
McKinnie will likely compete for playing time with right tackle Tyson Clabo, who allowed two fourth-quarter sacks in Miami's loss Sunday to Buffalo and has given up seven sacks this season.
Tackle Bryant McKinnie has been traded by the Baltimore Ravens to the Miami Dolphins, who are anxious to shore up a leaky offensive line.
Eddie Lacy rushed for 120 yards to fuel the Packers' first road win of the season. Green Bay (3-2) took a 16-3 lead into the fourth quarter and was up 19-10 with 4 minutes left, but the Ravens (3-3) kept coming back.
Frantically trying to protect a slim lead late in the fourth quarter, the Baltimore Ravens' pass rushers let Ryan Tannehill slip away to throw for a big gain. The next time they made sure he didn't escape.
"The idea is to be at your best when it means the most," Harbaugh said. "That's what we try to do. ... We'll find out whether that is the case for this football team."
"Our team got a chance to heal at this time of year going into December. That's a big plus for us," Harbaugh said. "We have December football in front of us. It's an important time of year. It's what we build our program around. It's where we try to be at our best."
