Default Ravens Outlast Titans, but Suffer Key Injuries in the Process

Undoubtedly, the post-game chatter will be about Joe Flacco being the first rookie quarterback to win two playoff games even though, you know, he completed just 11 of 22 passes for 161 yards and the defense, as usual, had almost everything to do with the final outcome.

Whatever your perspective, the fact remains: Baltimore is headed to the AFC Championship game for the first time since 2000. And they'll do it as the most banged-up squad in the league. On Wednesday, the Dallas Morning News' Rich Gosselin wrote that the Ravens finished 11-5 during the regular season "despite losing 64 games by starters because of injury, the fourth-highest total in the league. Baltimore lost 14 more games by starters than any other playoff team."

And next week, whether the Ravens travel to Pittsburgh or San Diego, they could be without a few more starters. Right tackle Willie Anderson, running back Le'Ron McClain, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs and cornerback Samari Rolle were all injured during the Titans game. McClain did manage to hobble his way through the second half, but was mostly ineffective.

Don't leave out Jim Leonhard, who suffered a concussion.

I think Leonhard, Suggs and Anderson will start. McClain I'm not so sure about and Rolle may likely miss the game due to a groin injury.

Oh, well! Somebody else will have to step up.

what it means is that is the total number of games that starters have missed

Say we lose three starters. One misses the whole 16 game season, one missed one game and another misses three.

That means 20 games missed by starters.

Suggs and Rolle are gametime decisions which means usually no but I want you to gameplan against them anyway.

Suggs is a beast but if they lose Rolle...you can call them DONE....Washington is a subpar CB at best and we will exploit their secondary.

I always took that to mean, "Yes, and I don't want you to game plan for them."

Washington has played pretty good at CB the last 5-6 games. A lot better than he had done earlier in the season after McAlister went on IR.

I am very happy that the Steelers came out of their game healthy. Bring your ice because it's going to be a tough physical game.
