With the Ravens in a dogfight for the 6th seed in the AFC, I decided it was time to see how their passing game compared to the other teams standing at 7-6.  This article assumes Denver will lock up the 5th seed.  Based on the passing game statistics and remaining strength of schedule, you have to like the Ravens chances compared to the other contending teams.


 

Check BTN next week to see where Joe Flacco and the passing game stand.
