Lewis, Reed on the outs? Colts likely wild-card opponent. Did criticism affected refs' call?

I'd honestly rather face the Colts than the Bengals. Next round, I'd still rather play against the Texans than the Broncos. Go Ravens!

Joe's TD to Jacoby was another ref decision that reeked. Watch the play then compare it in football moves to the NO's fumble upheld 2nd action move and decide for yourself if the refs need an independent NFL certified trained official that rules on the replay without going under the hood to verify what was called a TD on the field.

The officials were horrible, maybe they should be fined for bad calls that would force them to make the right call.

Maybe this game awakened a couple of sleeping giants (no pun intended): The Ravens' offense and defense. If they play like that in the playoffs, they can beat anyone anywhere!

Yesterday's upright Joe Flacco can handle any team WE face. Our rested defense can be good enough if Caldwell keeps giving Joe&Co. the schemes and the O-line protects like yesterday. Taking nothing from Dean Oees and an inspired defensive effort AGAIN but our "O" finally gave our "D" something to defend an early lead and an attitude that don't worry guys WE got this!,Merry Christmas,thank you RAVENS!!

The knock on Joe is not that he isn't capable, which he is but doing it consistently (week after week). We need this kind of play every week out of him, then the critics will be silenced.

Merry Christmas. I want nothing else. That Raven's win was awesome and the best stocking stuffer was " Defense said no...Defense said no...Defense said no!" Great job Sizzle

It doesn't matter where we play in the playoffs. Bring it on, the Ravens will step up and deliver. We have Pro Bowl quality players on offense and defense, including our Kicker! We took the Division Ravens Nation! Now it's time to play for all it's worth, and go deep into the playoffs :)

If we win the wild card round, Baltimore would rather face New England in a rematch from what happened last season. However, if Baltimore wins their last game and the Patriots lose, I would be completely stoked if somehow the AFC championship would take place in M&T Bank Stadium(that's if both Denver and Houston make a mistake that is).

"However it winds up, if the Ravens win in the wild-card round, they will visit the top seed. Where would you most prefer to play: at Houston, at Denver or at New England?"

I don't agree w/that statement. I can see where that would not be the case and don't think it's accurate. Maybe likely, but not set in stone. The top seed always will play the lowest remaining seed and that may not be us.

@jerk81791..... you couldn't be more wrong

When Flacco isn't getting killed by the D line, he kills the DB's... Proven Fact !

Good job, Joe. Now, do it on the road in Cincy and make the critics know you can win on the road.

Know matter whom we play it is a must win for us anyway. I predicted five wins in a row one down four to go.

Rebuttal to critics? HA!!!

I don't think so. Joe did what he was supposed to do...what he should've been doing all season!! We supposed to give him a cookie now?

It was a great game all around, and both sides dominated, as well as special teams. But let's not forget that Flacco is a big reason why we were slumping; so one good game (the first in a while, btw) doesn't mean he's suddenly the second coming. He did his job, and we're thankful for that. If he does this with some consistency, then come talk to me.


Regardless, great game Ravens!!!

I still think you have a week red zone offense, and we were lucky that we destroyed the Giants, otherwise we would've been haunted by our inability to score in the red zone.

THAT...needs to be fixed ASAP!!

Oh, and other than Chykie Brown allowing that TD in the end, he played really well!! So did Ihedigbo.

Oh yea...and that one armed special teams tackle by Upshaw was awesome! That showed how strong the dude is!!

And shame on the refs for one of the most disgusting games I've seen in a while! They were awful...for both sides. Ravens just happened to get the worst of it.
