1. The Ravens have serious flaws, especially on the road.

Sunday's loss to San Diego isn't the end of the world, but let's be honest about it. It's impressive that the Ravens are going to the playoffs for the fourth straight year, but they have serious flaws that keep showing up in road games. With home field advantage, it was easy to envision them in the Super Bowl. But now that they'll likely have to go on the road, it would be a surprise to see them make it all the way to Indianapolis. Nothing about the Ravens no-show against the Chargers feels all that shocking to me. (I predicted it, in fact.) By now, watching Baltimore play this kind of game on the road is about what I would expect from them. This is who they are. They're flawed when they're away from M Donald Miralle, Getty Images
