Merely days after holding their own (for the most part) against a high powered Saints offense in a hostile environment, the Ravens came back to the comfy confines of M&T Bank Stadium.  It is here that they had not lost a game in the month of November since 2009, and had never lost a game to a west coast team.

Both of those streaks died a horrible death Sunday against the Chargers following a tough series of events late in the fourth quarter.  Anthony Levine was called for pass interference in the end zone on a call that coach John Harbaugh openly criticized in the post game press conference.  After that, Phillip Rivers found Eddie Royal for the go ahead touchdown with precious little time on the clock.

It was a tough loss for sure, but not one that delivers a knock out blow to the Ravens’ playoff chances by any means.  At 7-5, they still sit ahead of the Steelers and Browns in the AFC North, 1.5 games behind the Bengals.  They did, however, lose their grip on the seven seed to the Bills.

As we do each week, we have assigned letter grades to each unit based on their performance.  While we oftentimes focus on the final stats, this game is a perfect example of why it’s usually best to look at the big picture.  Here are my Baltimore Ravens grades for week 12.
