First and 10: Week 8 redux

One week after laying a prime-time egg in Jacksonville, the Baltimore Ravens were down and out at home, trailing the lowly Arizona Cardinals 24-6 as they were booed into the locker room at halftime. How did the Ravens turn it around? Find out when NFL Network replays Sunday’s thriller Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET, followed at 9:30 p.m. by the clash of AFC powers New England and Pittsburgh.

Here’s what else is on tap for Tuesday:

  • If the season ended today, some familiar faces would be back in the playoffs, but several others would be left out in the cold. Check out our playoff picture as it stands after eight weeks.
  • After a slow start that seemingly had coach Andy Reid on the hot seat, the Philadelphia Eagles are starting to look like the potent team of All-Pros we expected, Jeff Darlington writes.
  • The Pittsburgh Steelers have heard the criticism all season. But they put it to rest in Sunday’s beatdown of the New England Patriots, Michael Lombardi writes as he rounds up what he loved and hated in Week 8.
  • It’s time to put Week 8’s fantasy horror show behind you and start scouring the waiver wire for Week 9’s gems. Michael Fabiano will tell you if now’s the time to add Carson Palmer, who’s had an extra week to study Oakland’s offense.
