Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Ravens news and notes from around the web.  Today we analyze the Ravens Pro Bowl player selections, break down the one remaining playoff scenario, another player heads to injured reserve, and slow offensive starts are costing the team wins.

One Playoff Scenario Left

After the Bengals upset the Broncos on Monday Night Football, the Ravens only have one remaining road to get in the playoffs. They must beat the Cleveland Browns Sunday, and the Chargers must lose to the Chiefs.  The Chiefs are currently favored over the Chargers by 3 1/2 points.

Marshal Yanda is Ready to Move if Needed

Yanda, the top rated guard in the NFL this season by Pro Football Focus, swung over to right tackle after Rick Wagner left last week’s game with an injury.  Now that Wagner has been placed on injured reserve, Yanda is preparing to play whatever position the team needs him to play.
