Another week, another close loss that could have just had easily gone the Ravens’ way instead of the opposite.  Such is the life of the 2015 Baltimore Ravens, a team that amazingly suffered it’s most lop sided loss of the season Monday night against the Arizona Cardinals, an 8 point “blowout.”

But oh, what could have been.  The Ravens were trailing by the score of 26-10 late in the fourth quarter when a blocked punt by Asa Jackson set up a Joe Flacco to Kyle Juszczyk touchdown, followed by a two point conversion by Nick Boyle, which made it a 26-18 game with 4:26 to play.

The Ravens even got the ball back with plenty of time, and Joe Flacco marched the offense down the field in short order before tossing a back breaking interception in the end zone.  That was all she wrote as the Ravens dropped to a 1-6 record, the worst start of the John Harbaugh era.

But it wasn’t all bad, of course.  Let’s take a look at the highlights and lowlights from week 7 in what we like to call our “cheers and jeers,” which points out what went right and what went wrong for the Ravens in their latest game.  We’ll get started with a surprise contributor who made a big play at the right time.

Next: Cheers - Asa Jackson
