The Ravens slipped two spots to No. 13, which has become their home on the rankings. This marks the ninth time in the 13 ESPN Power Rankings this season that the Ravens have been ranked either No. 12 or No. 13.
This ranking is a sign of respect for the Ravens. Of the seven NFL teams with a 7-5 record, only the San Francisco 49ers are ranked higher. The Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns are below the Ravens.
In terms of the AFC North, the first-place Bengals (8-3-1) remained at No. 10, the Steelers dropped two places to No. 16 and the Browns fell two spots to No. 18.
The Ravens play at the No. 15 Dolphins on Sunday.
