The Baltimore Ravens were 4-6 and turned things around with a four game win streak and that has them sitting in control of their destiny. If the season ended now they’d slide into the playoffs as the number six seed and they’re only one game behind the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North.
They have a touch match up against the New England Patriots this week, and if they lose they could fall behind in the race for a postseason trip. With a loss Miami could move ahead of them, and Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty wants to give them that loss.
“I’ll put it this way: There would be no better feeling than us beating them Sunday and … we eliminate their season right there,” McCourty said Thursday, via CSN New England. “For me and a lot of my teammates, there’d be no better feeling.”
Of course there is a bit of a rivalry between the Ravens and the Patriots after back-to-back meetings in the AFC Championship game. When asked if he hated the Ravens, McCourty said, “A little bit.”
