Ravens Biggest Threat to AFC Powerhouses?

Everybody likes to pick the number one seeds to reach the Super Bowl, but the truth is, that almost never happens.  There are always sleeper teams that emerge and steal lunch money from teams like the Broncos and Patriots, and this year one of those teams might just be the Ravens.

Ravens Sign Another Cornerback

The Ravens made a flurry of roster moves on Tuesday, but had one open roster spot to fill.  On Wednesday, they filled that spot by signing cornerback Chris Greenwood off the Vikings’ practice squad.  Greenwood is a 2012 fifth round pick of the Detroit Lions who has appeared in three regular season games.

Owen Daniels Filling the Void

With the inconsistencies of the Ravens’ wide receivers this year, tight end Owen Daniels has filled in quite admirably, providing a reliable presence in the middle of the field for Joe Flacco.

Owen Daniels Motivated to Prove Texans Wrong

Daniels hasn’t forgotten the day he was released, when the Texans flat out revealed that he “wasn’t good enough.”  Daniels has proven that he has a little gas left in the tank this year, and is obviously motivated to have a nice game against the team that put him on the street.

Four Ravens Miss Practice Wednesday

Chris Canty and Jacoby Jones missed practice due to an illness, while Will Hill and Kelechi Osemele were absent for non-injury reasons.  Bernard Pierce and Anthony Levine were both limited with injury.
