If that’s not enough, they’re getting what looks to be an easy road game tonight against the banged-up Seahawks and a Seattle crowd that abdicated its “Best NFL Crowd Alive” title by leaving its stadium half-empty during a last-minute game-winning drive (that failed) against Washington. Granted, you would have left, too, if your hopes were pinned to an injured Tarvaris Jackson leading a two-minute drive; after all, he’s shaky when he’s healthy, so when you throw in an injured pectoral muscle, the basement is the limit. Still … what Best NFL Crowd Alive leaves a winnable game early? Congratulations, Baltimore fans, you have the championship belt. Please take better care of it than Seattle did.— Bill Simmons

I’m positive this is some kind of Sports Guy jinx but I don’t care. I’ll accept this title on behalf of Charm City.
