NEW YORK -- Comments on the Baltimore Ravens by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

BALTIMORE RAVENS (4)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 4) -- Maybe second quarter of season will be a normal schedule.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 7) -- This team is still at its best offensively when Ray Rice gets consistent touches.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 5) -- Comment currently unavailable

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 3) -- Survived a stretch of four games in 18 days and now after a few extra days off before heading to KC to dismantle the Chiefs.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 4) -- Ravens take a well-earned weekend off after playing four games in 18 days, finishing it up by holding off pesky Browns.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 3) -- How's this for role reversal -- the offense is carrying the Ravens defense. Baltimore ranks second in offense, 23rd in defense.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 3) -- Say it ain't so, Joe: The Ravens can beat you with defense AND offense?

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 5) -- This new-look attack is averaging 30 points per game heading into Arrowhead.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 3) -- The Ravens hold down the No. 3 spot for another week. The Flacco no-huddle offense and playmakers on defense make them a tough out.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 5) -- It's the offense we are all talking about now in Baltimore. Joe Flacco is making his case to enter the elite quarterback fraternity.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 3) -- The next step for Baltimore is to become a more consistent winner on the road starting with Sunday's game at lowly Kansas City. Including the playoffs, the Ravens are 10-10 away from M&T Bank Stadium since the 2010 season.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 4) -- They should be well-rested and more dangerous than before when they play the Chiefs.
