Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Ravens news and notes from around the web.  Today we round up the latest injury carnage following a bad loss to the Texans, possible Ravens playoff scenarios, Steve Smith doesn’t like us, Joe Flacco had a bad game at the worst possible time, and where did the pass rush go?

Ravens Playoff Scenarios

The Ravens lost both the game and control of their playoff destiny yesterday, but still have a shot at a wild card spot as a 5 or 6 seed in the AFC.  Either way, they must beat the Browns next Sunday.  If they do that, and the Bengals either tonight or next week coupled with a Chiefs victory over the Chargers, the Ravens are in.  They can also get in if the Bengals lose out, even if the Chargers win.

Post Game Injury Report

The injuries kept piling up for the Ravens this week, this time ravaging the offensive line.  Eugene Monroe left the game and was seen afterwards with a boot on his foot, and Rick Wagner departed with a limp as well.
