The Baltimore Ravens traveled to South Beach and got their first road victory 26-23 over the Miami Dolphins.
The Baltimore Ravens got excellent play from their offense as a whole in route to a Super Bowl championship. But it appears as though those same players are struggling to get the job done in 2013. They’ll need to improve in a hurry as they prepare for the Miami Dolphins this Sunday.
After another dropped pass by tight end Ed Dickson Sunday against the Bills that led to one of quarterback Joe Flacco’s five interceptions, Ravens coach John Harbaugh called out the fourth-year tight end, who had 54 catches for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011.
After Week #4, it’s clear that the Ravens still don’t have a consistent identity on offense. Their new defense was embarrassed against the ground game.
John Harbaugh knows the Baltimore Ravens must improve their running game if they are to reach the playoffs for a sixth consecutive season. Against Buffalo on Sunday, however, Harbaugh was convinced Baltimore couldn’t win by rushing the ball. So he called upon Joe Flacco to throw on virtually every play.
Terrell Suggs was flagged for an Unnecessary Roughness call at the end of Sunday’s loss to the Bills. Coach Harbaugh disliked the call and defended his player.
One of the things the Ravens were convinced they were going to improve upon this year was the running game. Steve Davis asks what everyone is thinking: What running game?
The Baltimore Ravens could be down yet another receiver after Deonte Thompson was being evaluated for a possible concussion in a 23-20 loss to the Bills on Sunday. Coach John Harbaugh said it was too early to determine the severity of the injury because Thompson was still being tested.
The Baltimore Ravens appear to be a much better team than the one got manhandled by Denver in the season opener.
The Baltimore Ravens were far from overpowering in their home opener. Compared to their first game, however, they looked positively super.
After unveiling the Super Bowl Banner to the fans, the Ravens took to the field and faced their AFC rival, The Browns, who jumped out to an early 6-0 led by two Billy Cundiff FG’s, in his first appearance back in Baltimore after he was cut by the team last offseason.
The Ravens look to rebound from a tough loss in week one. They get their proverbial “whipping boy” in week two when Cleveland comes to M&T Bank Stadium.
