Mark Zinno gives us his take on the game Sunday as the Baltimore Ravens host the Packers of Green Bay at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Ravens have been banged up for a few weeks now. But players are beginning to get healthy. And for Baltimore, it couldn’t come at a better time.
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.
The Ravens have had a case of the injury bug since 2012. With Baltimore approaching the second quarter of the regular season, getting healthy is crucial if they hope to keep pace with the Cincinnati Bengals. Lucky for them, Ray Rice appears to be getting healthy.
Transition can be amazingly mysterious yet oddly predictable, and it’s just what the current version of the Ravens are dealing with.
Our on-field reporter Jerry Coleman hit the turf after the game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns. He caught up with Brandon Stokley, Marlon Brown, Vonta Leach and Corey Graham to get the players take on the game, the good and the bad.
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.
What a difference a week makes. The Ravens went from the joke of the NFL to the defensive powerhouse many envisioned when the season began. If Sunday was any indication, this defense will be a force for Baltimore this year.
