Ravens' passing efficiency is up, but they still want to develop downfield game

Once a staple in every Joe Flacco-led version of the Ravens' offense, the deep pass has become a secondary feature this season.

Film study of the Ravens' 27-24 loss to the Bengals

GAME PLAN: Gary Kubiak didn't seem to figure out quickly enough that Joe Flacco was clearly off his rhythm Sunday. Instead of reacting by pounding the football more against the NFL's 31st-ranked defense, the Ravens appeared to pass far more frequently than they should have as their wide...

Ravens news and notes on Jimmy Smith, Justin Tucker and more

If you would have asked me last week about what player the Ravens could least afford to lose for an extended period of time, quarterback Joe Flacco would have headed my list.

Should Steve Smith's penalty been a pass interference or no-call?

Should Smith have been flagged for pass interference on what would have otherwise been an 80-yard touchdown? For a brief moment, it looked like the Baltimore Ravens were going to come out of Cincinnati victors. Receiver Steve Smith had done it again — hauling in what would have been an 80-yard touchdown from quarterback Joe Flacco. For a moment, the Bengals fans were stunned, witnessing an improbable play that had no business occurring. But the play didn't matter and essentially never happened. An official threw a flag and called Smith for offensive pass interference on the play. It...

Reactions to pass interference that wiped out Baltimore's game-winning touchdown

We take a look at reactions from the offensive pass interference that wiped out Baltimore's 80-yard touchdown with 30 seconds remaining in the game. There was 47 seconds remaining in the game when quarterback Joe Flacco scrambled around like a duck during hunting season. As he approached the line of scrimmage, Flacco arched a deep pass towards Steve Smith. The veteran receiver shed George Iloka and avoided Reggie Nelson, sprinting into the endzone to give Baltimore a touchdown and 30-27 lead with 32 seconds remaining in the game. Flag. Offensive pass interference. Had the offensive pass...

Bengals vs Ravens: Jones pick and Nugent FG gives Bengals 17-6 lead

Bengals vs Ravens: Jones pick and Nugent FG gives Bengals 17-6 lead

The Bengals defense has recorded two second half interceptions to open the third quarter. They've lead to ten second half points for Cincinnati and a 17-6 lead. Two second half possessions... two interceptions. That's the bottom line for Cincinnati, who opened the second half with a flurry on defense. First it was Emmanuel Lamur, who picked off Flacco, leading to Giovani Bernard's touchdown and a 14-6 lead. This time Adam Jones anticipated a slant route while Torrey Smith collided with a defender following another receiver banking towards the sidelines. It was accidental but Flacco threw...

Bengals vs. Ravens: Lamur interception leads to Bernard touchdown

The Cincinnati Bengals have extended their lead to 14-6, following an Emmanuel Lamur interception (which gave the Bengals the football back) and a Giovani Bernard touchdown. Things have just gotten interesting. Baltimore, who opened the second half with a 21-yard Kyle Juszczyk screen, had second down from their own 41-yard line with 13:54 remaining in the third. Quarterback Joe Flacco tries to squeeze the football to Torrey Smith but Emmanuel Lamur intercepts the pass and returns it five yards to the Bengals 49. It's Lamur's second interception of the season; his first was also against the...

Bengals vs. Ravens: Baltimore on the board with a 45-yard field goal

Bengals vs. Ravens: Baltimore on the board with a 45-yard field goal

The Ravens are finally on the scoreboard, but not after defensive tackle Geno Atkins recorded his first full sack of the season. That gives him 1.5 sacks in the last two games while Cincinnati is holding onto a 7-3 lead. Baltimore has third down from the Bengals 43-yard line with 12:47 remaining in the second quarter. Joe Flacco takes the shotgun snap and flips the football to Steve Smith, who reaches the Bengals 40-yard line on the three-yard pass. That should be it for this possession, Baltimore's second of the game. Flag. Robert Geathers. Offsides. Uh-hum. Baltimore has third down from...

Bengals hold on fourth and goal from the one

The Cincinnati Bengals force Baltimore to conclude their first possession with nothing after an 18-play drive that went 89 yards and reached the one-yard line. After Cincinnati took an early lead with a game-opening touchdown, the Baltimore Ravens nearly responded. Baltimore reached midfield with over seven minutes remaining in the first quarter, facing a third down situation with eight yards needed to pick up the first down. Joe Flacco, facing down a defensive blitz, flips the football to Kamar Aiken in the flats. Terence Newman, who dropped an easy interception two plays earlier, makes...

One Falcon To Watch In Week 8: Jonathan Massaquoi

One Falcon To Watch In Week 8: Jonathan Massaquoi

Massaquoi is one cheeky bloke. After showing flashes in Atlanta's defense for weeks, Jonathan Massaquoi is finally starting to get appropriate playing time. Since Mike Nolan is late (but finally arriving) to the Massaquoi party we've all been at for the last two months or so, the defense is starting to show very faint signs of a pass rush.  On limited pass rush opportunities last week, Jonathan disrupted Joe Flacco on numerous occasions, and had what very well may have been his best professional performance. With his snap count rising on a weekly basis, it's fair to assume his presence can...

Behind Enemy Lines: Bengals vs Ravens

Matthew Stevens of Baltimore Beatdown sits down with us at Cincy Jungle to talk about the upcoming big AFC North showdown between the Bengals and Ravens this Sunday. Q: Prior to week one, you and I discussed Joe Flacco's impressive run through the 2012 playoffs, followed by his disappointing 2013 campaign. Flacco is off to a great start in 2014 and on pace for his best season as a pro in terms of touchdowns, yards, completion percentage and quarterback rating. Is the difference attributable to Steve Smith alone? Or has something else changed in 2014? A: Most people look at his 2013...

Film study of the Ravens' 29-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons

GAME PLAN: Maintaining a balanced approach, offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak had quarterback Joe Flacco orchestrate a controlled passing game that mixed in a few deep shots. Flacco was relatively efficient overall despite a few miscues in his first multiple-interception game of the season,...
