1. Baltimore Ravens (8-2) | Last Week's Rank: 2
The Ravens looked great against the Texans and deserve to leapfrog the Patriots to No. 1, even with one more loss than New England. They have wins over the Seahawks, Patriots and Texans by an average margin of 21.7 points. Lamar Jackson was spectacular, as usual, against Houston. The most encouraging sign was that the defense also was very good.
