So you're saying there's a chance...


I like how each week begins with the condition of the Browns winning, so that the scenario can be eliminated by the very first item.

So, if the Ravens had Blake Bortles as their QB they'd actually be a top 5 team? Wow.

Or maybe it has something to do with their running game.

Nah, it's Bortles.

The Ravens just need a replacement level quarterback. Flacco is -468 DYAR this season, well on his way to passing 2016 Brock Osweiler.

5.4 yards per attempt. My lord. Alvin Kamara is getting a full yard more per rush attempt.

That's a stat someone should look up. When's the last time a starting QB had fewer yards-per-attempt than the league's leading per-carry rusher? That's a tough mark to reach, as usually starting QBs don't drop below 6.0, and that's a high mark for a RB to reach with a qualifying amount of carries.

Looks like it was close last year. Brock had 5.8 per attempt and Shady ran 5.4.

Woo it was close in 2014, rookie Derek Carr had 5.5 and Justin Forsett ran 5.4. Of course rookie QBs pressed into immediate full-time starting duty are the only cases where it should even be close.

Wait, has been QBs with broken OL don't count?
