18. Baltimore Ravens

Earlier in the season, the Baltimore Ravens seemed like their improved offense was going to help this team become one of the top contenders in the AFC, which seemed like a relief after all those years coming up short of the playoffs. Instead, the Ravens turned into a team on the decline with four losses in five games, with the latest coming on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the last team they wanted to lose to.

Despite keeping things close for the most part, Baltimore just couldn’t figure out a way to come through when it mattered the most, and as a result, dropped to 4-5 on the season. All of a sudden, the Ravens are a few losses away from hitting the panic button since they now trail both the Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals in the division race.

Sooner or later, Joe Flacco will need to figure out a way to get out of this funk on offense after failing to toss a single touchdown pass in the loss to the Steelers. At least with an extra week off, the Ravens will have plenty of time to prepare for their showdown with the Bengals since they’re going to need all of the help possible, especially on offense.
