SI and ESPN conspire to hex Ravens

Both Sports Illustrated and ESPN have the Ravens at #1 in their respective NFL Power Rankings. This is a transparent attempt to set the Ravens up for a trap game against Cleveland this week, but luckily the Browns are really, really bad.

Despite the fact that my Fantasy Football team is atrocious, I'll still head to the bar on Sunday since I'm pretty excited for the slate of early games this week... I'd like to catch the Falcons at the Patriots, Titans at the Jets, and 49ers at the Vikings... I'll have to keep my head on a swivel while I'm (hopefully) watching the Ravens manhandle the Browns. What I'd like to see from the Ravens this week? A functioning secondary.
