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

---

BALTIMORE RAVENS (7)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 3) -- Gearing up for two games the next three weeks against the Steelers.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 9) -- Two games vs. Pittsburgh in three weeks could decide AFC North.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 3)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 8) -- Winning despite some very poor play from their defense.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 6) -- Ravens set franchise record for most points in a game, pummeling the reeling Raiders and prepping for this week's divisional showdown against the Steelers. Ravens 7-2 for first time in the John Harbaugh era.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 5) -- The Ravens are an AFC-best 5-0 at home this season and have now won 15 consecutive games there. Three of Baltimore's next four games are on the road, though.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 5) -- Let's see, that's 55 points without significant yards from Ray Rice. Maybe the Ravens aren't so vulnerable after all.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 8) -- Ray Lewis won't lead them at Heinz Field, but the Ravens will feel his presence.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 6) -- The Raiders limped into Baltimore and the Ravens took full advantage of the Black and Silver. Fake field goal, and a 105-yard kickoff return for touchdowns. Two games coming up against the Steelers will tell us all we need to know about Baltimore.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 8) -- The Ravens put a beatdown on the Raiders. They scored 55, albeit against the Raiders, who have given up 97 points in the last two games.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 7) -- The AFC North front-runner will be decided in the next three weeks with the Ravens and Pittsburgh playing twice.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 4) -- Confidence is sky high at the right time -- two of the next three are against the Steelers.
