Last season, the Ravens' defense ranked No. 1 in the NFL and helped lead Baltimore to its first division title since 2012. Now, this defense looks confused, lost and fractured. Receivers are running wide-open and running backs are reaching the end zone untouched. The Ravens have given up 500 yards in consecutive games for the first time in franchise history. Baltimore is missing some core leaders -- Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley and Eric Weddle -- who left in free agency. Someone needs to step up to get this defense back on track. -- Jamison HensleyHow to increase their playoff chances: For those who believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, here's what the Redskins need to do: Quit underachieving defensively, start hitting open throws, reduce the penalties and stay healthy. Quarterback Case Keenum failed and rookie Dwayne Haskins isn't ready, so their hope would lie with Colt McCoy returning and then playing at a higher level than he has ever reached. And they must win a few games over the next five weeks before getting running back Derrius Guice back from injury. The Redskins started 0-5 in 2001 and won eight of their next 11, and they did so in 1981 as well. It might be one in a million, but yes, we're saying there's a chance. -- John Keim. The closest (and most recent) chance was a 21-zip blowout against the Bucs in 1985

After four games, Watson has been sacked 18 times, which is tied for second most in the NFL. If the Texans want to improve their chance of making the playoffs, they need to give Watson more time to throw, as they did in Week 3, when he was sacked only twice and he threw for 351 yards. -- Sarah BarshopHow to increase their playoff chances: The Bengals need to start putting together wins -- quickly -- to even be in the playoff discussion. Cincinnati must find a balance between the air and ground attacks and be consistent for an entire game. The team has played well in spurts but has lacked quality over 60 minutes.
