Ravens are worn, but not out

Along with Titans defensive linemen Albert Haynesworth and Kyle Vanden Bosch, and running backs Chris Johnson and LenDale White, one of Baltimore’s biggest issues against Tennessee will be its condition.

Due to rescheduling its bye week from what was supposed to be Nov. 9 to Sept. 14, Baltimore now has played a whopping 17 straight weeks without a bye. It has taken its toll on the Ravens, too. They are a tired team.

Now, after a trying season in which the Ravens have been up to the challenge, they will have to play on a short week. Baltimore beat Miami in an AFC Wild Card Game. They now will be forced to travel to Tennessee to play a day earlier, Saturday. It is not going to be easy.

Granted, Baltimore has two future Hall-of-Fame defensive players, an inspiring coach, and a rookie quarterback that hasn’t figured out he’s not playing for the Fighting Blue Hens anymore.

They are worn down and worn out. But they also are dangerous enough, if need be, to suck it up for three more games.
