FPI: Vikings hold major edge over Ravens

In a battle of the only two teams in the league who wear purple, ESPN's FPI leans heavily toward the home team, giving the Vikings a 3-1 advantage. Only one Week 7 matchup is more lopsided.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees was defiant about the play of the NFL's No. 16 defense: "We just can't give up the big play. It is still the bottom line; I'm still not trying to excuse that. But I'm just saying I'm not doom and gloom. I am not going to buy into that crap. We are a pretty good damn defense, and if we quit giving up big plays, we will be a damn good one statistically. Enough said."

Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams was a full participant for the second straight practice. Nine players didn't practice, and that included virtually every position except quarterback and defensive line.

Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace expects to play Sunday at Minnesota after missing practice Thursday. "My back is a little sore," Wallace said. "It's like a bone bruise. It should be fine for Sunday." Wallace took a helmet to the back in last Sunday's loss to Chicago. One of the most durable receivers in the league, he's missed one game in his nine seasons.

Good news for Ravens is the return of left tackle Ronnie Stanley (mouth), who didn't practice Wednesday. Bad news: A total of 10 players not practicing for Baltimore: WRs Mike Wallace (back), Breshad Perriman (concussion), Chris Matthews (undisclosed); TEs Ben Watson (calf) and Maxx Williams (ankle); RB Terrance West (calf); CBs Jimmy Smith (Achilles) and Lardarius Webb (undisclosed); OL Matt Skura (knee); and LB Tim Williams (hamstring). Two players are wearing red (non contact) jerseys: WR Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and LB C.J. Mosley (undisclosed).

Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace (back) is not practicing Thursday after being limited the previous day. Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) is still wearing red jersey, signifying no contact. Baltimore down to three healthy receivers: Michael Campanaro. Chris Moore and the newly signed Griff Whalen.

Ravens announce the re-signing of Griff Whalen, who had been with the team in the preseason. The addition of Whalen comes at a time when Baltimore's top three receivers are on the injury report. Breshad Perriman likely won't play Sunday because he's in the concussion protocol and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and Mike Wallace (back) were limited in practice Wednesday. Baltimore cut offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom to make room for Whalen.

Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams will practice Wednesday after missing four games with a foot injury. This is a big boost for a struggling run defense. Without Williams, Baltimore has allowed 169.5 yards rushing per game.
