Excerpt: "The Ravens are 9-5 and almost assured a playoff berth with two games to go in a top-heavy AFC. But after a 9-2 start, they've lost three in a row and their stranglehold on the division is no more. The Bengals are just one game behind and face them in the season finale, in what could be a game for the AFC North title and, consequently, a home playoff game.

"But that’s just the feeling that you have right after a game like this.”

Like some Giants players were saying after getting blown out in Atlanta, safety Ed Reed was "embarrassed" with his team's play." Read more...
