Ravens rank: #7


"Rookie first-round pick Breshad Perriman has missed more than a week due to a knee injury. It’s hard for a rookie receiver to make up for that lost time."

That’s a great argument you make there, Frank, really.  But I digress.

Schwabby puts the Ravens behind the Broncos (#6) and Steelers (#5!!!) but still has the Seahawks at the top.  I know that the Steelers have a great offense and all, but what about their paper thin defense?

You could make the same argument for the Colts, but hey, everybody loves offense right?  Enough to ignore the fact that defense is important too?

Many forget that the Patriots only came back to prominence last season when they had a much improved D.
