The Baltimore Ravens fell two spots to No. 14, matching their worst showing on the Power Rankings this year. Last year, in their championship season, the Ravens never ranked lower than No. 11. In fact, before this season, the last time the Ravens were ranked lower than No. 11 was Week 14 of 2009.
No one can argue with the Ravens' current ranking. Actually, the voters are showing Baltimore a measure of respect. The Ravens (3-4) are the highest-ranked team with a losing record. Baltimore is even one spot ahead of the New York Jets, who are 4-3 this season. As one of six voters on the Power Rankings, I had the Ravens at No. 13.
