PFF: Yes, your eyes aren’t lying, the Ravens are bad

PFF: Yes, your eyes aren’t lying, the Ravens are bad

An ugly game, an ugly loss, and your eyes do not deceive you. The Baltimore Ravens are not playing well, on either side of the ball. PFF gives us a small breakdown on a few players, some good, while others, not so good. Offense The best lineman and the highest rated player for the game yesterday, was James Hurst. He’s proving to be more at home at LG than his usual tackle spot in previous seasons for the Ravens. His 79.3 game grade was the highest on the offense today, and he has now gone two straight games without allowing a pressure. Despite not throwing an interception, QB Joe Flacco...

Ravens-Vikings week seven game recap, highlights, and more!

The Ravens traveled to Minnesota to face the Vikings in week seven. Below is a quick recap of the game: Today's inactives vs. Minnesota. pic.twitter.com/IEKiVAGy8C— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) October 22, 2017 First Quarter: The Vikings won the toss and elected to defer. Baltimore started on their own 25-yard line. On third-down, Danielle Hunter sacks Joe Flacco, resulting in a three-and-out. Marcus Sherels returns the punt for 46-yards to Baltimore’s 36-yard line. Case Keenum’s first pass is intercepted by Brandon Carr, who returned it back to Baltimore’s 35-yard line for 33...

Case Keenum is no stranger to facing the Ravens

Case Keenum is no stranger to facing the Ravens

Case Keenum has faced the Ravens two times in his career. The interesting part is, he has faced Baltimore with two different teams. In week 16 of the 2014 season, the Ravens traveled to Houston to face the Keenum led Texans. Houston won the game 25-13. Keenum finished 20 for 42, 185 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. In week 11 of the 2015 season, the Ravens hosted the Keenum led Rams. This game will never be forgotten, but for all the wrong reasons. Baltimore won the game 16-13, but Joe Flacco tore his ACL and was ruled out of the remainder of that season. Not to mention, this was...

Three Ravens-Vikings week seven storylines

Three Ravens-Vikings week seven storylines

The Ravens sit at 3-3 after an embarrassing 27-24 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears. The Minnesota Vikings sit at 4-2 after an impressive 23-10 win over divisional rival, the Green Bay Packers. Below are three storylines for Baltimore’s week seven matchup: 1. The Ravens’ offense has not not scored a touchdown in their last six quarters of play The last touchdown scored by Baltimore’s offense came in the second quarter in week five against the Raiders. It was a one-yard touchdown run by Javorius Allen. The question is, can the offense right the ship? Will Joe Flacco deliver more...

The John Harbaugh lie detector test

The John Harbaugh lie detector test

Will Baltimore’s head coach hold his assistant’s accountable? The Baltimore Ravens have seen their offense perform extremely poorly during the 2017 season. They are currently 24th in points (19.0 per game), 29th in total yards (289.2 per game) and 31st in passing yards (159.7 yards per game). Yes they’ve had injuries, Joe Flacco has played poorly, the line isn’t very good at pass blocking as a unit and receivers have dropped what seems like a billion passes. They aren’t the only problem. It’s the coaching. John Harbaugh consistently calls poorly timed timeouts. He hires...

Joe Flacco voted third most overrated quarterback

Joe Flacco voted third most overrated quarterback

The Ravens’ signal caller carries a lucrative contract According to a poll conducted by ESPN.com, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is considered the third most overrated player in the league behind Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. 72 players voted in the poll and Flacco accumulated 10 percent of those votes en route to his third place finish. The poor finish likely stems from Flacco’s contract and his lackluster play since winning the Super Bowl nearly five years ago. Since signing the lucrative contract that made him amongst the NFL’s highest paid...

The quarterback dilemma facing NFL teams when it comes to contracts and the salary cap

The quarterback dilemma facing NFL teams when it comes to contracts and the salary cap

Big-money bets on QBs are shaping teams’ fortunes. Quick, name the quarterback with the highest salary cap hit in the NFL in 2017? I imagine most people don’t know that Joe Flacco, with a $24.6 million cap hit is the most expensive player in this season’s NFL. Have you checked out Flacco’s numbers lately? Yeah, they’re not good: QBR = 30 (50 is average) Passer rating = 66 (average is around 94) Adjusted net yards per attempt = 3.3 (league average is 6.1) 4 touchdowns versus 8 interceptions In short, Baltimore is paying top-shelf price for rotgut performance. And they’re not...

PFF: Stanley still elite, Flacco struggling and Matt Judon is a future stud

PFF: Stanley still elite, Flacco struggling and Matt Judon is a future stud

PFF has once again supplied Baltimore Beatdown with five players on offense and defense whom performed positively or negatively. Left tackle Ronnie Stanley produced yet another top-notch performancd. He topped the team for the second week running with a 87.4 game grade, giving up only one hurry. It wasn’t the left tackle whom forced Joe Flacco to throw the interceptions either. PFF studied the tape and found Flacco was pressured on only 17.8% of drop backs, but managed to get sacked on 37.5% of those plays, the highest percentage for Sunday afternoon's games. Pressured or not, Flacco...

Can the Ravens’ offense turn it around?

Can the Ravens’ offense turn it around?

Are the Ravens still in contention or is all hope lost? The Ravens stand at 3-3, but it is a rather confusing 3-3. All three of Baltimore’s wins have been double-digit victories. However, all three of their losses have been extremely ugly. Their first loss of the season came in week three against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Baltimore lost 44-7, and there was very little signs of life. The Ravens benched starting quarterback Joe Flacco in that game. Their second loss came the following week against divisional rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Another pedestrian performance, where Baltimore...

Ravens make a complete 180 turn from performance against the Raiders

Ravens make a complete 180 turn from performance against the Raiders

The Ravens played a great game against the Raiders in Week 5. Coming home to face the 1-4 Bears, it seemed that the Ravens should be able to keep the momentum going. Or not. Everything that went right for the Ravens against the Raiders went wrong against the Bears. Against the Raiders, the offensive line played well. It opened up holes for the running backs and kept Joe Flacco clean. Against the Bears, the line was, at best, mediocre. It was unable to consistently give Flacco the time he needed, leading to Flacco having to run outside the pocket, and three sacks. Flacco had pressure on...

Ravens Review: Vince Mayle’s TD run

Ravens Review: Vince Mayle’s TD run

A look at how the Ravens schemed Vince Mayle’s TD run Welcome back to the Ravens film room. Today we’ll take a look at Vince Mayle’s touchdown on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. The first thing the Raiders’ defender are going to do here are read the offensive line and their run keys. This was a really neat play because it’s not very often that a tight end is going to get a handoff in this situation. Typically if a tight end is in motion it’s to come across the formation and block. When Flacco takes the snap, the Raiders read the running back and fullback as...

The Baltimore Ravens needed Sunday’s victory over the Oakland Raiders, keeping them in contention in the AFC North with a key stretch ahead. But perhaps no individual Ravens player needed it more than QB Joe Flacco, who was coming off…
