Are the Ravens good enough offensively for the playoffs?

Earlier Thursday, we cited some talk out of the Boston media about how the Ravens-Patriots rivalry has heated up over recent years. Heading into Sunday’s game between them, one of the Pats has indicated how strongly he and his teammates feel about the Ravens.

“I’ll put it this way: There would be no better feeling than us beating them Sunday and [if Miami wins]… we eliminate their season right there,” safety Devin McCourty said, as reported by “For me and for a lot of my teammates there’d be no better feeling. So it’s going to be key to come out and play well on Sunday.”

(Actually, for the Dolphins to clinch a playoff berth, they would need not just to win their game and for the Ravens to lose, but also for the Bengals to lose.)
