BLOG: Ravens Make A Statement
The win over the Steelers was more than just a victory. It sent a message.
The Ravens got younger and faster on offense, the defense is still aggressive and the quarterback has taken a step forward. To put in perspective how big this win was, consider this: the last 8 games between these 2 teams was decided by a total of 28 points. The margin of victory in this game was 28 points.
Flacco was calm and poised in the pocket, and accurate and aggressive down the field. Who needs OTA’s? The offensive line was dominant, despite having never played together before. Terrell Suggs was a force, and Reed continues to have an eye for the ball.
It may only count for 1 win in the standings, but don’t kid yourself, it was bigger than that.
