Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens are on the outside looking in with a 4-6 record. They know what they have to do in order to get into the playoffs and make a run at defending their title, which at this point seems highly improbable.
They have to just go out their and play their hearts out, and leave everything on the field at this point. Joe Flacco would agree with that statement, and said in an interview with ESPN,
“We don’t have anything to lose right now,” Flacco said. “We can’t really be in any worse of a situation and still have hope. We’ve got to go out there, and we’ve got to lay it on the line. And that’s what we did last year. We let it all go, and we just played free. We focused on what was next or what was there right now. And if we do that this year, then we have all the ability in the world to play well and turn this thing around and play the way we want to.”
As it stands right now, the Ravens are just one game behind the 5-5 Jets for the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC. Who better for the Ravens to play this week than the New York Jets?
The game will be played in Baltimore, which could bode well for the Ravens, who are 3-1 at home this season.
