Baltimore has had an incredible year and there will be plenty more to be excited about when the Bengals return to the NFL.
However, we will have to wait until the Bengals’ Week 9 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers for the team’s worst performance of the season.
Read more The Baltimore Ravens are a team that has had a great start to the season, but that didn’t last.
They have lost seven of their last nine games and are on pace to finish the season at 10-6.
The team has had four of the five highest-scoring games of the year, including a three-game win streak against the Denver Broncos.
The Ravens also have lost five of their past six games at home and are 8-3 overall when facing a defense that has allowed the fewest points in the NFL to opposing offenses.
While they are currently a top-10 defense, the Ravens are just 2-7 when they host the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.
The other teams that are expected to play at least a couple of games against the Ravens in Week 9 include: Indianapolis Colts (4-3), Carolina Panthers (5-2), Green Bay Packers (4.5-1), Arizona Cardinals (4) and Denver Broncos (4).
The Patriots are expected in action on Thursday Night Football and the Panthers will be back on the road.
The Arizona Cardinals, the No. 2 team in our Power Rankings, have been one of the most disappointing teams this season.
They are coming off a 4-12 season, which included a loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and are now just 3-6 with their lone win coming against the Green Bay Badgers.
The Carolina Panthers have been able to find success against the teams they face, but it has been limited to a loss at the hands of the Denver Nuggets.
The Broncos are coming into Week 9 as the favorites, but are still a win away from a division title.
If they play like they did against the Chargers in Week 5, they will be in position to make a run to the playoffs.
The Packers are expected back on Monday Night Football, but there is no guarantee they will play.
The Chargers have won three of their first four games and look to continue that streak when they visit the Green Lamborghini dealership in the parking lot of Lambeau Field on Monday night.
The Texans are the top team in the AFC South, and have won four of their five games.
The AFC West is the best division in the league and the teams who play in the division are the AFC champions.
If Houston plays like they have done all season, they should be in contention for the division title, but they are still two games behind the Chargers.
If the Texans lose to the Broncos in Week 10, they are in serious trouble and should not be looking at themselves for the NFC West title.
The Patriots also have to get past the Chargers, who are coming to town for a Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Houston Texans are expected on the field for the first time this season and they will have a difficult task ahead of them.
The Colts will be playing their first game since Week 9 and they could be looking to get back to winning ways as they face the San Diego Chargers on Monday.
The Denver Broncos will be coming into town to face the Seattle Mariners.
They will be looking for a win and should be a good matchup for the Patriots, but the Broncos are 4-3 at home this season against the AFC West.
The Washington Redskins have been the worst team in football and will be one of four teams who have played at least four games against each other this season, with the others being the Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders, and Denver Nuggets, who play each other in Week 1.
The Raiders are currently 4-2 and the Broncos and Seahawks are all 6-3.
The Redskins are 5-2, and the Seahawks are 5.5, but Denver is 4.5 and Seattle is 3.5.
The last team that the Redskins played was the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3.
The Seattle Seahawks have been a dominant defense in the early going of the NFL season, and they are now the defending champions after their playoff run in 2017.
They play the Oakland Raiders on Monday, and could look to build on their victory in Week 4 by playing the Denver Chargers on Thursday night.
If Seattle plays like it did against Oakland in Week 2, they could look for a strong showing and make a big run in the postseason.
The Seahawks have a chance to clinch the NFC East with a win over the Oakland Raider in Week 11, but will be facing the Chargers and the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12.
Both teams are looking to build a strong finish to the year.
If one team wins out, it would be the Raiders and if the other team loses, it could be the Chargers or Jaguars.
The Kansas City Seahawks will be taking on the San Jose Sharks
