Texans’ defense made life miserable all day for Ravens QB Joe Flacco

• • • • • • Kendrick Lewis looked at Joe Flacco, studied his countenance and body language closely, then reached a startling conclusion. Joe Flacco, a Super Bowl-winning quarterback just two seasons ago, was becoming frazzled, even unnerved, right before his eyes. Unrelenting pressure can do that to a quarterback, and the Texans weren’t […]

Ravens-Texans final score: Joe Flacco struggles mightily in 25-13 loss

The Ravens had a horrid performance on offense in a disastrous 25-13 loss to the Texans. Falling back, off his back foot, incomplete. That was the story of Joe Flacco's Sunday afternoon in Houston. The Ravens were embarrassed on the offensive side of the ball on the road against the Texans in a 25-13 loss. That was not the kind of game anyone expected from a team many figured had a great chance at making the playoffs. Now those chances have taken a hit with the Ravens needing a win against the Browns and some help next week. Joe Flacco had arguably the worst game of his NFL career. In a...

Open Game Day Thread: Ravens @ Texans, Fourth Quarter

Ruck the Favens. Here comes the 4th quarter! Joe Flacco winning a Superb Owl (and winning Superb Owl MVP over Jacoby) is one of those great tragedies of our time. Is he injured and playing through it Ryan Mallet-style? Either way the Texans are carrying a 19-7 lead into the fourth quarter... and running wayyy behind the other early afternoon games thanks to all the pass attempts. Case Keenum and Flacco combined are 28 for 67 for 245 yards, 1 touchdown and 4 interceptions. Yeesh. Stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion! Ravens vs Texans coverage

San Diego Chargers DC John Pagano's adjustments paying off in a big way for the defense

Kyle Posey examines what defensive coordinator John Pagano is doing that's making the defense better late in the season. I've been very critical of defensive coordinator John Pagano for the last year and a half. I think it's been warranted. The defense was a joke a year ago. This year, once it's been hot and cold. The reason it's so frustrating to watch is because we've seen stretches of games where the unit looks like a top 5 defense. Then there's entire games where they make Ryan Tannehill, Derek Carr, and Joe Flacco look like all-pro quarterbacks. The last two weeks, though. Mannnnn....

Terrell Suggs on Dan Patrick Show: Joe Flacco has 'no rhythm' as a dancer

Terrell Suggs had plenty of funny moments while appearing on The Dan Patrick Show. If you need some laughs, do yourself a favor and listen to the above clip with Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs appearing on The Dan Patrick Show. Suggs touches on a few points, with some great takes. The first funny moment is the two talking about Joe Flacco as a dancer. Why? Who knows, yet it's still funny. Suggs said Flacco has "no rhythm" though he's never seen him dance. He mentions that it sure looked like the Bengals wanted to get after Johnny Manziel in a 30-0 win over the Browns. Suggs...

The Early Book on Mariota

NEW YORK—It’s amazing to me that some people question Marcus Mariota as a prospect because he’s not a big vocal leader. I have covered the NFL since 1984, and I will tell you the quarterbacks I have known who are not good vocal leaders: Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Flacco, Brian Griese, Alex Smith, Sam […]

Jaguars vs. Ravens: 5 questions with Baltimore Beatdown

We asked Matthew Stevens of SB Nation's Baltimore Beatdown five questions leading up to the Jaguars vs. Ravens game. Here are his answers. 1. The Ravens' strength is their running game. What is the single biggest reason for that? Is Justin Forsett that good? Is it the interior offensive line? Is it opposing defenses having to account for Joe Flacco? The Ravens have had a renewed rushing attack partially thanks to each aspect that you mentioned. Unlike the early 2000s Ravens, Baltimore now has a quarterback with arguably the strongest arm in the league and can flick the ball 60 yards as easy...

Looking back at the Ravens players of the game from Sunday

Top performers from Sunday's win over Miami. Joe Flacco Flacco was poised and accurate on Sunday, as he had a 75.3 completion percentage and two passing touchdowns against the league's second best passing defense. If not for an interception he would've had a perfect day, but regardless this is his third straight game with a passer rating over 100. The offensive line The line deserves credit for keeping Flacco safe against a Miami pass rush that features formidable rushers, such as Cameron Wake, Jared Odrick, and Oliver Vernon. Flacco was only sacked once the entire game. Steve Smith After...

Kamar Aiken becoming a key role player on Ravens offense

Don't look now but Kamar Aiken is making some key plays on offense. Since the season-opener against the Bengals when he had four receptions, receiver Kamar Aiken hadn't had more than two grabs in a game leading into last week's meeting against the Chargers. Since, he's had nine catches and has become someone Joe Flacco has turned to in the passing game. This was evidenced with Aiken getting six receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown — both the receptions and yards single-game highs — in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Dolphins. This followed a three-catch, 51-yard performance against San...

Ravens at Dolphins: How they match up and staff predictions

When Dolphins have the ball Miami passing (22nd in NFL) vs. Baltimore pass defense (30th): Ryan Tannehill doesn’t throw for a ton of yards, but his short game is as efficient as can be — his 66.5 completion percentage is seventh in the NFL and he has gone over 70 percent in five consecutive games. The Ravens have struggled to stop the pass all season. Edge: Miami. Miami rushing (10th) vs. Baltimore ...

Top 11 Reasons The Ravens Offensive Line Is Dominating

Between this season and last, the offensive line is a polar opposite of itself. I was searching for items to write about focusing on the offensive line when it finally hit me.... I haven't had to hear the name Juan Castillo at all since the regular season started. HALLELUJAH! In fact, I had to look up and make sure he was still on the coaching staff. The reason Castillo has somehow found his way out of the crosshairs of the Ravens fan base is because the offensive line has been playing out of its mind. The o-line has kept Joe Flacco upright most of the season. In fact, the Ravens are tied...
