FANTASY BLITZ: Guru Fabiano Clings to Slim Lead Down Stretch

Atlanta Falcons v Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Every fantasy football player in the country looks for the competitive edge to beat their opponent. Each game means bragging rights and sometimes winning or losing a friendly bet.

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Dalton Struggles, Bengals Still Clamp Down on North

daltbrowns
There’s not much to say about last week. The Bengals basically ran away with the North with their win over the Browns, the Steelers won but still don’t look legitimate and you know how the Ravens game ended… Well, that’s it. Thanks for reading “Behind Enemy Lines”. Not really, but that about sums it all up! Here are a few of the more in-depth storylines including some of the teams’ top headlines.   CINCINNATI BENGALS Johnson Calls Out Fans: Even at 7-4, the Bengals still don’t look like the real...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Bengals Continue Sliding Back to Pack

Andy-Dalton-sacked-Bengals-Ravens
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to write a positive edition of “Behind Enemy Lines”. This week, I’m proud to say that the Ravens actually gained ground in the AFC North. It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t conventional, and it wasn’t easy to watch. Nevertheless, the Ravens left Week 10 still in the hunt for a playoff berth. With the San Diego Chargers’ loss, the wild-card possibility doesn’t look out of the question either if the Ravens can’t secure the North late in the season. There’s a lot to...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: The Upside-Down AFC North

gronkpol
Eleven straight games… The streak is over. The Cleveland Browns and Jason Campbell managed to beat us at the Factory of Sadness. And while some will say that the season is over…it’s not. In fact, this season isn’t even close to being over. You can thank the Miami Dolphins for that. With the Bengals’ loss, the AFC North is still wide open for anyone that wants to win it. With a victory and a Cleveland loss next week, the Ravens are still very much in contention. The chances might not...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Bengals Continue Emergence as Class of AFC North

daltonjones
It was another one of those unpredictable NFL weekends, and the madness certainly applied to games in the AFC North. While the Ravens took their week off and rested, the Browns, Steelers, and Bengals did battle in games they all had the chance to win. Some were more lopsided than others (Thanks a lot, Jets). Others hit two contenders in the North for quite possibly, the final blow to their chances to make the playoffs in 2013. Check out the most noteworthy items as we take our weekly look “Behind...

Will the Postseason Dance Include the Ravens?

Ravens Bengals tackle
The bye-week could not have come at a better time for the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens. Extra rest and game-planning was needed, and you have to believe that the team soaked in every minute of their break. While the Purple and Black took their weekend to rest up, they watched a favorable weekend unfold. Several key AFC contenders fell, certainly to the delight of those surrounding the Ravens. The Bengals may have won, but if you want the Ravens to continue to improve their chances at making the playoffs,...

Ravens Work Out Former First-Rounder Wells

Arizona Cardinals v New York Giants
As John Harbaugh mentioned in his press conference after the loss to the Steelers, the organization will do anything they deem necessary to improve and win down the stretch. While that cliché seems to come from every coach after a critical loss, Harbaugh seemed noticeably different in this instance. He referenced that the team will add, cut and/or trade players to get to the caliber at which they need to be to compete in the AFC. While a move might not be imminent, it’s not for a lack of trying....

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Bengals Extend Lead, Steelers Still Breathing

Marvin Jones, Chris Houston
Week Seven summed up the Ravens season pretty well, as it seems as though no matter how much much the players may talk about winning, no one can turn the page and “get better”. Joe Flacco missed some throws. The running game, though it seemed better, was still dismal. The coaching was pitiful. Through seven weeks, not much else could go wrong for this slumping team. Only one thing provides a silver lining after a loss at Heinz Field—a 5-4 and a 3-1 divisional record after Week Ten is still...

Down to Two RBs, Ravens Work Out Bernard Scott

bernardscott
To say that the Ravens’ running game has been dismal would be an understatement. The team’s offensive output thus far might make a Brian Billick-era offense cringe. However, at least Billick’s teams could run the ball, for the most part. This year’s Ravens haven’t been able to do that at all, as they currently sit 27th in the NFL in rushing yards, and 31st in yards per carry (2.7). It’s no secret that whatever schemes have been implemented since Juan Castillo stepped on board have not worked. With key divisional...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Bengals Claw Ahead, Steelers Get First Win

Pittsburgh Steelers v New York Jets
Buckle up, because the rollercoaster season that we all saw approaching is here, and it’s looking like it’s here to stay. If the Ravens have even an average offense, the team is 5-1 going into Pittsburgh. If the defense isn’t back to near-2000-caliber, they’re 1-5. It all boils down to one critical thing, starting fast. Slow starts are really nothing new in the Joe Flacco era, but this year’s offense has seemed to get going more slowly than ever, leaving fans to question not only the multi-million dollar quarterback, but...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: The Unpredictable AFC North

The Ravens were supposed to come out of their two-game road trip with some separation atop the AFC North. With the Bengals playing the Patriots, and the Browns in the midst of a quarterback controversy, all John Harbaugh would need was a win and a chance of sole possession of first place would be in front of them. That didn’t exactly happen. An impressive team victory did occur in Miami, but the same happened with Cleveland and Cincinnati. The Browns set the tone on Thursday night and Cincinnati decided this...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: One of the NFL’s Weakest Divisions?

bendownviks
Well, that didn’t go as planned. Week Four was supposed to feature AFC North domination, with the Steelers in a “must-win” game across the pond and Cincinnati traveling to the Factory of Sadness to take on Cleveland. I’ll try not to mention that the defending champs lost to the Bills. (Oops… but let’s be honest—THE BILLS??) It’s clear that the landscape of the AFC has dramatically changed. The AFC North might be the conference’s weakest division and at this point it seems very unlikely to produce more that one playoff...
