The Baltimore Ravens have spent much of the season in bounce-back mode. Now they've finally reached a point where the objective is to sustain their momentum.

With their refreshingly lopsided victory over the New York Jets on Sunday, the Ravens (5-6) climbed into a six-way tie for the second wild-card slot in the AFC and improved to 10-1 in November home games under coach John Harbaugh.

After Sunday's 19-3 win, linebacker Elvis Dumervil said, "It's nice to see that it's starting to work out for us now."

The schedule appears favorable, too. The Jets game was the first of three straight at home for the Ravens, who are 4-1 at M&T Bank Stadium and 1-5 on the road.

Next up: an AFC North clash against Pittsburgh (5-6) on Thanksgiving.
