NEW YORK (AP)

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

---

BALTIMORE RAVENS (11)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 7) - Whatever Week 16 formula was, find it. Ray Lewis returns for playoffs a large plus.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 12) - We'll see if the Ravens can send off Ray Lewis with a ring.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 10)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 12) - No momentum having lost four of the last five although getting Ray Lewis back should help.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 11) - John Harbaugh backs off some key players in the meaningless regular season finale, all in hopes of freshening up for a playoff run that starts against the Colts.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 9) - The Ravens turned the ball over 16 times this season. That tied with Green Bay, New England and San Francisco for fewest in the league - and explains why all four teams are playing this January.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 10) - The Colts are coming! The Colts are coming! I'm not sure where the worst battles will be here -- on the field or in the parking lots.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 9) - Ray Lewis and Ed Reed are steeling themselves for one last roundup.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 11) - The Ravens need the offense to be a major force with a defense that isn't what it used to be. The Ravens are a proud group that plays round one at home and should move on to round two.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 10) - The Raven's are in a bit of a free-fall with the firing of their offensive coordinator at 9-4 and injuries continuing to take a toll.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 11) - With the AFC's No. 4 playoff seed considered a certainty, the Ravens were able to give starters some much-needed rest during a 23-17 loss at Cincinnati.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 11) - Ray Lewis' return should give them an emotional charge, and the Ravens will need one after losing four of their last five.
