Coaching: A

We tend to give Gary Kubiak a hard time about his run/pass ratio, and even John Harbaugh has come out and disputed the fact that they are an unbalanced team.  It’s hard to pick a bone following week six because the Ravens had an easy decision to finish the game running the ball since they jumped out to a huge lead.

Joe Flacco obviously deserves the credit for making the coaching staff look good, but they called a good game regardless.  Give the team props for getting two rookies ready to go on the offensive line.  James Hurst was coming off a bad performance against the Colts, and John Urschel was a last second fill in for Kelechi Osemele.

We will also give Dean Pees credit for being very aggressive, though he could afford to be while the Ravens were nursing a huge lead.  When you know the other team is going to pass, you can simply tee off on the quarterback.  But they could have played prevent, and while the D did back off a bit, it stayed aggressive for the most part.
