NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:
Why this game is intriguing: After Houston blew their wings off in Week 7, the Ravens vowed to take a bye week, get together, and figure out how to deal with the losses of Ray Lewis and others to injury. Not surprisingly, that's exactly what they did. Three games, three wins, one of which was a street fight against the Steelers. All the Ravens have to do on Sunday is take down a nose-diving Chargers team that's trying to stave off an implosion. Does that make San Diego desperate? Perhaps. Maybe this is where the last stand of the Norv Turner regime comes. If so, it will depend on the somewhat mercurial right arm of quarterback Philip Rivers, which can attack a Ravens secondary without Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Of course, the way those Ravens safeties are hitting, will the Chargers receivers even want to make the tough catches?
