Ravens 13 Steelers 6; Halftime Notes

 

-lets start with the bad Ravens. Flacco threw what was possibly the dumbest throw of his career after breaking a tackle by Brent Keisel he tried to hit Pitta down the sideline, but never saw that Ryan Clark was standing exactly where Flacco threw. easiest pick of Clarks career. In Flaccos defense, Pitta should have worked back towards the line of scrimmage to help Flacco out instead of going deeper while Flacco scrambled. Flacco made a terrible throw, but Pitta made a bad read as well.

-Ravens TD drive was beautiful. Boldin made a great catch in the endzone off a perfect throw that was identical to last years opening score. 2 plays before Flacco threw a perfect back shoulder underthrow to Boldin, it was a perfect play and impossible to defend, Cam Cameron, welcome to 2012 football.

-Steeler have to be kicking themselves, they missed open WRs downfield about 4 times including a terrible drop by mike Wallace at the end of the half. The Ravens clearly dont fear the Steelers deep game with batch at QB, they seem perfectly happy to trail streaking WRs expecting an eventual underthrow.

-Corey Graham had another big interception against the Steelers to neutralize the dumb Flacco pick. Graham is proving why the Ravens signed him this offseason. Graham also blew a coverage badly on the steelers last offensive play, had Charlie Batch not inexplicably overthrown the pass by about 10 yards, Wallace would have been catching an unbelievably easy TD pass, Graham came down and let Wallace run right behind him uncovered.

-based on how the Steelers have played, 13 points might be enough to win this thing, but it sure would be nice to see the Ravens offense build off that TD pass.

-Justin Tucker is awesome. he is 2-2 on the day and 24-26 on the season.
