Ravens hold ground in national power rankings

The Ravens remain something of an enigma to the national media (and many Ravens fans), an 8-2 team that has scored few style points. In the end, though, that doesn't matter a bit. The Ravens won at Heinz Field to move to 8-2, but perhaps because the Steelers were missing Ben Roethlisberger, the Ravens' third straight regular-season win at Heinz Field didn't move the needle much in the national power rankings.

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

CBS Sports.com: No. 6, up one spot: "The defense looked like the defense of old against the Steelers. Bit of advice, though: Watch out in San Diego."

ESPN: No. 5, unchanged: "The Ravens have won 12 straight games in the division, tying the Colts (2004-06) for longest such streak since the 2002 realignment."

Fox Sports (rankings done by former Ravens coach Brian Billick): No. 7, unchanged: "The Ravens defense may be struggling against the run, but it is good when and where it counts. The Ravens have a top-10 scoring defense and lead the league in red-zone defense. Not too shabby for a defense without its leader in Ray Lewis and best corner in Lardarius Webb."

NFL.com: No. 5, unchanged: Joe Flacco at home: 66.5 completion percentage, 322.4 yards per game, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. Joe Flacco on the road: 54.2 completion percentage, 176.6 yards per game, three touchdowns and four interceptions. If you can explain that trend, Baltimore Ravens fans, I'd love to hear it."

National Football Post: No. 6, up one spot: "Even with eight wins on the season, it feels like the Ravens are under the radar."

Pro Football Talk: No. 5, down two spots: "So should the Ravens feel good or bad about beating the hapless, Ben-less Steelers by three points?."

Pro Football Weekly: No. 6, up one spot: "Jacoby Jones making a run at pick-up of the year: three return TDs."

Peter King, SI.com: No. 7, up one spot: "Three wins in a row in the game's fiercest rivalry, by 28, 3 and 3 points. Loved the hitting and instincts I saw out of cornerback Corey Graham Sunday night in Pittsburgh."

2. The Ravens are looking for help at left guard and with 2017 fifth-round pick Jermaine Eluemunor not getting many reps in, Coach Harbaugh put Eluemunor in the left guard spot. Although Harbaugh said Eluemunor will need to get in better shape, he acknowledged Eluemunor's work at left guard.

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.
