OK, it might be time to finally admit that the Baltimore Ravens are not a very good team this season. I admittedly had a lot of confidence that they could right the ship and save their season against the Browns, a team they should have handled at home.
But they didn’t. It was just another week, and another heartbreaking loss that this time went into overtime. The Ravens blew an early lead and let Josh McCown improve his road record as a starter to 5-20 while throwing for a Browns’ franchise regular season record of 457 yards.
If you’re angry, upset, and ready to declare the 2015 season a wash, I don’t blame you. But once again, the Ravens have proven that they are a pretty talented team that simply can’t finish. In each of the last 3 losses they have had a lead in the 4th quarter, only to blow it on defense.
As Joe Flacco said following their latest deflating loss, the Ravens simply aren’t “good enough” to overcome the various injuries and other issues they have faced through five weeks. But that doesn’t mean we’re giving up on them, obviously, and you shouldn’t either, dedicated fan.
Instead, we take a look at who contributed to the loss and who did their best to keep the Ravens alive in our latest stock report. Let’s take a look at who is in line for more reps, and who might need to take a seat on the bench.
