The Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears have zeroed in on a playoffs berth despite their respective first halves of the 2013 NFL schedule not going entirely as planned. One of these teams will take a step closer toward a playoff berth in week 11 when we watch Ravens vs Bears online free live streaming NFL game week 11 on CBS Sports by following the links presented below.
Last week the Ravens snapped a three-game skid in dramatic fashion by ousting AFC North leading Cincinnati in overtime. A loss in that game might have been the final nail in the coffin for the defending Super Bowl champions. Instead, the 4-5 Ravens are now a win away from .500 and only one game back of the Bengals in the loss column.
Baltimore nearly lost last week’s game after quarterback Andy Dalton called the final play of regulation down seven points and 51 yards from the end zone. Dalton heaved up a hail mary pass that went into a pack of players, deflected away from them and right into the hands of A.J. Green to force overtime.
A major point of concern for Baltimore this season has been the lack of a consistent or efficient running game. Last season Ray Rice was a machine with the ball and ran for over 1,000 yards. This year the Ravens are averaging only 73.1 yards per game on the ground and Rice and Bernard Pierce could only combine for 61 last week. Rice in particular has been a bust with a 2.5 yards per carry average.
The Ravens have been better through the air with Joe Flacco leading the way. He seven touchdowns over his past four games against three interceptions. However, two of the interceptions were against the Bengals so Flacco will need to shake off that performance and be ready to come out gunning against the Bears on the road at Soldier Field.
Chicago’s season that started hot has turned into an avalanche of injuries. Linebacker D.J. Williams and defensive tackles Nate Collins and Henry Melton are all lost for the season. Piling on more pain is defensive end Shea McClellin, linebacker Lance Briggs and quarterback Jay Cutler sidelined for the time being, and now cornerback Charles Tillman has been moved to the injured reserve with a torn triceps.
Seasoned backup quarterback Josh McCown will get the start for the Bears when we watch Ravens vs Bears online free live stream today and play in his fourth game of the season. Through those games he has four touchdowns, no interceptions, and a quarterback passer rating of 103.2. Many fans were calling for McCown to come in last week when it was clear Cutler was injured, but Cutler stayed in the game en route to a 21-19 loss to the division leading Detroit Lions.
