The Ravens still have 10 games left

While it feels like a huge loss, it is just the second of the season for Baltimore. Perhaps most importantly: it’s only Week 7.

Coming into the season, anything from a 14-3 record to 11-6 felt realistic. This loss doesn’t change that trajectory.

Baltimore does, however, have a tough remaining schedule. They face the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers twice, they have to play the Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Rams and have to deal with the Bengals again.

"“It’s always week to week; it’s always game to game. There never is any running narrative, it just doesn’t exist. You have to come out and play your best every week, and we did not play our best – far from it, really, in any phase, and that’s on us.” – John Harbaugh"

Nevertheless, the Ravens have already shown they can beat any team and can do so in different ways.

This was just one bad game. There are 10 more to prove it was just a one-off.
