Like it or not, Ravens earned right to be in sole possession of first in AFC North

The Baltimore Ravens took sole possession of first place in the AFC North, and some will want to put an asterisk next to their name.

The Ravens sit atop the division, but they did so by crushing the winless Cleveland Browns 28-7 on Thursday night. Baltimore is the only team in the AFC North with a winning record, but its win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday came with Ben Roethlisberger at less than full strength.

It’s time to hold off on the “but …”

The Ravens (5-4) did what they had to do to turn around their season. Sure, Baltimore might not look like a playoff team in all phases of its game. The Ravens, though, might be the best team in a bad AFC North.

“What we are is what we are,” wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. said. “We have to accept that, and we have to keep working hard. What are we? 5-4. We could be 4-5 or we could be 0-9. You have to appreciate where you are and not take anything for granted.”

Two reporters in Boston, Tom Curran of CSN New England and Steve Burton of WBZ-TV, tweeted Tuesday morning that Belichick wrote a letter to Trump and that the words Trump read aloud were his words.

As for Brady, his wife Gisele Bundchen implied to Michael Bennett Authentic Jersey a fan that neither she nor Brady would vote for Trump. Asked on Instagram if it is true that the pair supported the Republican candidate, Bundchen – who rarely responds to Instagram comments – replied with an emphatic, “NO!”

While Brady told radio station WEEI early Monday morning that he hadn’t voted yet, he did vote later, submitting an absentee ballot in Brookline, Mass., where he lives.

Sherman subsequently dove at the ball and took out the legs of kicker Dan Carpenter, which should have been called unnecessary roughness. Many called it a dirty play, saying Sherman wasn’t going for the ball.

Well, he responded on Tuesday morning with one simple picture that sums up his defense of the play.

The ball wasn’t thrown in his direction, nor was it going to be with Taylor rolling away from the play. Sherman recognized the opportunity to take out one of Taylor’s targets and used it to his advantage – legally.
