Now that another disappointing Orioles season has come to an end, Baltimore’s full attention is turned to the Ravens. And while the Ravens started the season with an impressive 4-1 record, at times looking like the best team in the AFC, they may have traded that fast start in on Monday night with one of the ugliest losses Ravens fans have seen in years. While it wasn’t how much they were beaten by (be thankful you aren’t Colts fans), it was the way that they lost in the 12-7 Monday night loss to the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.Additional information can be found at http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/seahawks/2016600331_mnf25.html?syndication=rss.
Look, we all know that the Ravens aren’t offensive juggernauts, but 146 total yards? Sure Flacco was 21/38, but when was the last time you saw a quarterback average only 3.9 yards a pass? And how about Ray Rice being held to 28 yards in a game where he should have run rough-shot over the struggling Jaguar defense? Yes, this was an ugly game, a game that you just pray is an anomaly on the schedule. The defense held the Jaguars to only four field goals, but when you go only 2-12 on third downs, like the Ravens did, you aren’t going to win a game. With important games against Pittsburg and Cincinnati coming up in the next month they better start improving fast.
