Ravens Nest: The Vikings defense poses a threat to the Ravens

Ravens Nest: The Vikings defense poses a threat to the Ravens

Ravens news for 10-21-17 To the Ravens news.... Vikings front seven could dominate Ravens — Baltimore Beatdown We thought the victory against the Raiders was a sign of things to come for the Ravens. We thought that they perhaps were on the upward swing, but on the road the Chicago Bears exposed the offensive line's true colors. It wasn't pretty. Now, the Ravens travel to Minnesota to face one of the league's top defenses and a familiar foe in Mike Zimmer. It will get ugly. It shouldn't have taken an injury for WR Chris Moore to get playing time — Ravenswire Moore might not necessarily...

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...

Ravens Film Review: Miscommunication in the secondary?

Ravens Film Review: Miscommunication in the secondary?

What’s going on with the Ravens’ defense? Welcome back to the Ravens film room. This week I’ll be taking a look at the 27-yard touchdown pass that Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky threw to tight end Dion Sims. Above is the play in question. The Bears come to the line of scrimmage with three receivers bunched to the right and one isolated to the left. The Ravens respond by playing Cover 1, which deploys man coverage underneath with a single-high safety. Pre-snap, Tony Jefferson and another defensive back get mixed up on their coverage assignments. Jefferson appears to...

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...

Spread the Field Week 7: Who are you taking against the spread?

Your guide on who to take this weekend Welcome to Baltimore Beatdown’s pick’em series. Each week I’ll pick five games, look at the spread and make a pick. For all you fans that like to gamble, this is for you! Ravens at Vikings The Ravens are on a skid right now. After starting 2-0 they’ve cratered back down to Earth, showing little reason to believe in them on a consistent basis. Fortunately, they’ll travel to Minnesota to take on a Vikings team that also has struggles at quarterback. This game figures to be a defensive slugfest, and because of that, the smart money would be...

Vikings front seven could dominate Ravens

Vikings front seven could dominate Ravens

Here we go again. We thought the victory against the Raiders was a sign of things to come for the Ravens. We thought that they perhaps were on the upward swing, but on the road the Chicago Bears exposed the offensive line's true colors. It wasn't pretty. Now, the Ravens travel to Minnesota to face one of the league's top defenses and a familiar foe in Mike Zimmer. It will get ugly. Linval Joseph could make it impossible to run. But it is Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr that could become the game changers as the Vikings will feature gap exachange concepts from double-A gap looks that will...

Ravens sign WR Griff Whalen, release OL Tony Bergstrom and CB Sheldon Price

Simply put, the Baltimore Ravens receiving core is banged up. Jeremy Maclin missed week six due to a shoulder injury, Breshad Perriman exited the game early with a concussion and Mike Wallace is dealing with a back injury. Due to the lack of healthy wide receivers, the team needed to add depth along the unit. To make matters worse, the team is still missing offensive guard Matt Skura and running back Terrance West. They were also without Ronnie Stanley, Maxx Williams, and Benjamin Watson during Wednesdays' session. On Thursday, the Ravens officially signed wide receiver Griff Whalen. In...

After 6 weeks, fans now know who the Ravens are

Once again, the Ravens find themselves in the swamp of mediocrity Following one of - if not the - worst losses in team history against the Jaguars in London, most of us wondered if it was an aberration or an indcation of the team's talent level. The next two games against the Steelers and Raiders were supposed to provide insight and they did, even if the two results were as far from one another as possible. Now, with the past weekend's game against the Bears having passed, it is clear that the Ravens are neither good nor terrible. They are again right in the middle. Another 8-8 season looms...

Ravens are 5.5 point underdogs in Minnesota

The Baltimore Ravens are currently listed as 5.5 point underdogs at Minnesota in Week 7. The point total is set at 39.5, representing a final score of approximately 23-17 Vikings. The Vikings are tied for first place in the NFC North with a 4-2 record following their win over the Packers last week. Their defense is ranked fifth in both yards and points allowed per game. They have also overcome injuries to starting quarterback Sam Bradford and starting tailback Dalvin Cook to post the tenth best offense in the NFL thus far. Most of the trends favor the home team.

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...

Report: Ravens expected to sign WR Griff Whalen

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Ravens are “expected to sign” wide receiver Griff Whalen. The #Ravens are bringing back a familiar face: Griff Whalen is flying to Baltimore, expected to sign & practice tomorrow, I’m told.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 18, 2017 Whalen was with Baltimore during the 2017 preseason. However, in his limited opportunities, Whalen did not capitalize. He finished the preseason with four catches for 32 yards. Whalen went undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft. He is a true NFL ‘journeyman’. Whalen has had stints with the Colts,...
