Who Ravens Fans Should Root for in Week 10


It's the bye week. A chance to kick up your feet and watch some football without as much stress.

The Ravens sit at 4-5 and are still in the mix for a playoff spot, most likely via the wild card.

Here's a look at who Ravens fans should be rooting for this weekend:

New Orleans Saints (7-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (5-3)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
The Saints may be the best team in the NFL and are coming off an offensive shootout win against the previously undefeated Los Angeles Rams. (Remember when the Ravens were an extra point away from overtime with the Saints? Sigh.) The Bengals are probably the Ravens' top competition when it comes to a wild-card spot. Baltimore needs the Saints to keep marching.
Root for: Saints

Jacksonville Jaguars (3-5) at Indianapolis Colts (3-5)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
This is a tough one. It's a really big game for both teams. The Colts have won two straight and can put themselves in the hunt with another win. Andrew Luck is healthy and their offense is rolling. The Jaguars, meanwhile, have lost four straight and at a crossroads. Either team that wins will have the same record as Baltimore. So which team will be a bigger threat to the Ravens' chances by season's end? Well, the Colts are hotter and have an easier schedule the rest of the way than the Jags.
Root for: Jaguars

New England Patriots (7-2) at Tennessee Titans (4-4)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
With their Monday Night Football win over the Dallas Cowboys, the Titans snapped a three-game losing streak and are ahead of Baltimore in the standings. The Patriots are almost certainly going to win the AFC East, so it doesn't matter to the Ravens' chances if they get another win. The Titans, however, are a threat – even though the Ravens beat them soundly in Week 6.
Root for: Patriots

Los Angeles Chargers (6-2) at Oakland Raiders (1-7)
Sunday, 4:05 p.m.
The Chargers are in good position to secure one of the wild-card spots, but they don't have it locked up. The Raiders are reeling, but you never know what can happen in division games, especially when the favored team is the road squad. An upset would be nice.
Root for: Raiders

Miami Dolphins (5-4) at Green Bay Packers (3-4-1)
Sunday, 4:25 p.m.The Dolphins are one of those teams that will probably linger in the wild-card race. After winning their first three, Miami dropped four of the next five. They're coming off a win over the Jets and now host a Packers team that has underachieved and is coming off a tough loss in Foxborough. Aaron Rodgers knows he has to get his team some wins, and fast, to stay in the NFC playoff picture.
Root for: Packers
