26. Baltimore Ravens (25)

Another week, another struggling performance by Joe Flacco after the Baltimore Ravens quarterback threw for just 186 yards with a touchdown, despite completing 27 of 39 passes against the Minnesota Vikings. Even if the Ravens haven’t done the best of job with providing their veteran quarterback with the best of weapons to work with on offense, it’s beyond frustrating to see Flacco play at this low level when looking at all of the money he’s making from the organization.

In a game that ended up being a battle of field goals, it took Baltimore until the final play of the game to find the end zone after Chris Moore caught a 13-yard touchdown pass as time expired, which didn’t even matter Minnesota had already earned the win. At 3-4, it’s difficult to picture the Ravens having what it takes to compete for a playoff spot in the AFC since they can’t seem to figure out a way to get anything consistent going on offense, and when that happens, most of the blame is going to fall on Flacco.

Not to mention, Baltimore’s defense hasn’t looked as dominant over the last couple of weeks like they normally do, so John Harbaugh’s squad is quickly falling apart. Unless the Ravens figure out a way to turn their season around, Harbaugh is going to find his name on the hot seat sooner rather than later when seeing how close this team was to earning a spot in the postseason last year.
