The week three NFL Power Rankings were released by ESPN.com and the Ravens found themselves not only still in the top ten, but ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers. After losing 26-13 to the Tennessee Titans in week two, Baltimore fell from fourth in the Power Rankings to seventh.
They now sit behind the Packers, Patriots, Jets, Saints, Texans and Eagles.
Oddly enough, the Ravens still managed to find themselves ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who fell from eighth to ninth this week. “The Pittsburgh hangover lingered in Baltimore’s loss to Tennessee.” wrote ESPN’s AFC North blogger James Walker.
On the Steelers Walker wrote, “Was there any doubt the reigning AFC champions would bounce back?” I don’t think there was, but that still didn’t help Pittsburgh move ahead of Baltimore this week.
