Baltimore Ravens (4-3)
Grade: C

What they’ve done well: Instead of the usual moribund offense Ravens fans are used to, John Harbaugh’s team has occasionally lit up the scoreboard. The Ravens are rolling off 378.7 yards per game, 7th in the league, and making opponents prepare for the strong-armed Joe Sacco and super-quick running back Ray Rice. Their 28.4 ppg is fourth best in the NFL. With an offense that can dominate at times, the previously dominant defense only needs to be good.

Needs improvement: There was a time when backs couldn't even dream about running 100 yards against Baltimore. No runner had done it since 2006. Yet Cedric Benson and Adrian Peterson both topped the century mark this season. Middle linebacker Ray Lewis, a future Hall of Famer, has lost a step and the team misses former defensive coordinator Rex Ryan. The once-dominant defense is giving up 313.7 yards per game, and is allowing 19.6 points per game, 12th in the league. These are unacceptable numbers for this proud unit.
