On the surface, you can look and say the Ravens blew their chance to get in the playoffs by getting smoked by the Patriots. And, as hard as it may be to believe they can turn it around and have everything else go their way, ponder all the other “unbelievable” things that happened Sunday.
The supposedly “unbeatable at home” Seahawks picked off Carson Palmer four times….and still lost.
NBC flexed the Ravens off of Sunday Night, were relieved when the Patriots blew out the Ravens, only to see an even more lopsided game with the Eagles crushing the Bears.
The Dolphins, with everything to play for, mustered 14 yards rushing and were blown out by the Bills, who had nothing to play for.
So, my point is, the “unbelievable” seemingly happens every Sunday, which means that all the things that should happen Sunday: Bengals beating Baltimore, Miami winning at home over the Jets, San Diego handling a KC team with nothing to play for and the Steelers knocking off Cleveland… won’t happen. That is one guarantee I can make.
