The 2011 Ravens are like your genius brother with the great job...who just happens to have a crystal meth habit. A week after beating the Steelers on the road to take control of the race for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, the Ravens laid an absolute shit in Seattle, losing to the lowly Seahawks. Baltimore clearly has a problem playing bad teams on the road (their other losses are to Jacksonville and Tennessee). We'll chalk this one up to (another) temporary bump in the road, because the Ravens have a favorable schedule and own the tiebreaker over the Steelers. But not beating the teams you're supposed to beat on a regular basis is not the perfect recipe for success. --Jack Erwin
