Although the Baltimore Ravens offense has stank for the majority of this season, the defense has shined at certain times. The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Green Bay Packers 23 to 0 yesterday to increase their chances for a possible Wildcard spot in the playoffs. This was the third shutout of the year by a Ravens defense which currently leads the league in interceptions.
Below Terrell Suggs and the gang celebrate after a sack on the poor Green Bay Packers quarterback:
The Baltimore Ravens just ate their fifth loss of the season. Last game Joe Flacco nearly had his head taken off by a vicious hit and went into the concussion protocol. I thought the Ravens would run and pound the football this week but instead Joe Flacco threw the ball 52 times which resulted in 2 interceptions. Running back Alex Collins had just 13 carries and Javarious Allen had just 7 carries. The result was a 23 to 20 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Even the New Orleans Saints which are known to be a passing team with a better quarterback in Dree Brees had a better run/pass balance this week. Dree Brees only threw the ball 27 times while running back Mark Ingram had 16 carries and Alvin Kamara had 10 carries. This illustrates what a good run/pass balance looks like and the result was a 30 to 10 Saints win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Why are Ravens so pass happy especially when Joe Flacco just had his head smashed to the point where his ear almost fell off the prior week?
