Bob Haynie: Ravens Stay The Course
The hapless Indianapolis Colts came into M & T Bank Stadium on Sunday with a winless record and a team that ranks near the bottom of the NFL in many statistical categories.
The Baltimore Ravens treated them accordingly.
The Ravens were never threatened as the handled the Colts with ease, 24-10, to improve to 10-3 and remain in 1st place in the AFC North. Baltimore didn’t try to get cute as they took care of the 0-13 Colts with relative ease. At this point in the season, style points really don’t matter.
QB Joe Flacco has played better and Ray Rice continues to pile up the rushing stats as offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has gotten back to basics with his play calling.
Led by LB Terrell Suggs, the Ravens are playing as well as any team in the league defensively.
The Chargers loom this coming Sunday in San Diego. Even though they have been one of the NFL’s more disappointing clubs, San Diego is extremely dangerous. But if the Ravens continue to do things they way they have been during their four-game winning streak, they should prevail.
Baltimore is getting close to accomplishing some major goals as we approach the end of the 2011 regular season.
The best is still yet to come.
