Defense was worked up and down the field all game. 140 Rush yards 315 Passing yards. Luckily the Packers had trouble finding the end zone, or this would have been a blow out. 2-14 on third down and 22 carries for 47 yards is embarrassing. These are not the worst things that happened somehow. Flacco getting sacked and fumbling from the Raven’s 34 yard line with 10 seconds left in the half that led to 3 points moments after a missed Green Bay FG was terrible.
Other than on 3rd down, Flacco looked impressive, throwing for 342, 2 TD, and 0 INT. He completed passes of 63, 59, 41, and 31, which is a good sign that the Ravens will be able to stretch the field this season.
Not controlling the line of scrimage really hurt the Ravens in this game, and have all year. Next week should be a hard hitting AFC North showdown at Pittsburgh.
Hey, at least the division is still wide open, though. Unfortunately the Steelers have momentum after their (FIRST) win this week, but that’s OK. Time to drop the hammer.
