National power rankings

The national media were not exactly impressed by the Ravens' 25-15 win at Cleveland, with the Ravens falling despite the win in several of the national power rankings. Former Ravens coach Brian Billick knocked them down three spots. And in the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately department: Most of these rankings place the Patriots ahead of the Ravens, despite the Ravens' having a better record and a win over the Patriots.

Here are the latest NFL power rankings from some of the national media:

CBS Sports.com: No. 8, down two spots: "Things looked dicey in the fourth quarter against Cleveland, but good teams find a way. Joe Flacco did it when he had to do it."

ESPN: No. 7, unchanged: "Joe Flacco now has two fourth-quarter comebacks this season and eight for his career.."

Fox Sports (rankings done by former Ravens coach Brian Billick): No. 10, down three spots: “It hardly seems fair that the Ravens drop three spots after a win, but it was less than convincing against a struggling Browns team. The division title will be up for grabs as the Ravens and Steelers square off in two of the next four weeks.”

NFL.com: No. 6, up one spot: "The Baltimore Ravens sit at 6-2 after holding off the pesky Cleveland Browns on the road. Head coach John Harbaugh had nothing but positive remarks about his opponent, praising what's being built in Cleveland. Class. You can't teach it. Another thing that can't be taught: resilience. Baltimore is on pace for a 12-4 mark, despite some huge injuries  Terrell Suggs, Lardarius Webb) and offseason losses like Jarret Johnson, who now resides in San Diego. Give Harbaugh his props."

National Football Post: No. 10, down one spot: "Will the Ravens’ defense show us something in the second half of the season?"

Pro Football Talk: No. 10, down one spot: "When the coach regards a game against the Browns as a “must” win, it’s obvious things aren’t going well.."

Pro Football Weekly: No. 10, down two spots: "Off the bye, Rice has most touches of the season, and Ravens win."

Peter King, SI.com: No. 10, down two spots: "Another unimpressive day -- for 50 minutes -- from quarterback Joe Flacco, who will be needed by Baltimore if it hopes to win big in January. Now: Raiders next week, then what that football-mad corridor between western Pennsylvania and the eastern shore of Maryland has been waiting for -- two Baltimore-Pittsburgh games in a 15-day span."

Yahoo.com: No.9, unchanged: "The Ravens have not been themselves for the last month. Sunday's game against the Raiders will be a good opportunity for the Ravens to right the ship as they hit a critical three-game stretch of the schedule — two of their next three games are against the Steelers — that could decide the AFC North."

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Roster spot questions begin

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Chris Board is making a run for a starting spot at linebacker for the Ravens, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Board and Kenny Young will reportedly make a run for the starting spot opposite Patrick Onwuasor, but Board is pulling ahead of the pack Zrebiec says. The spot is up for grabs since the Ravens lost C.J. Mosley in free agency.

2. Also looking to earn a roster spot is wide receiver, Jordan Lasley. After training during the offseason with Lamar Jackson, many expected Lasley to show up to minicamp ahead of the pack, but after making some drops, Zrebiec says Lasley "will need to pick up his game" if he wants to get a spot on the Ravens roster.
