The Baltimore Ravens are 3-1 after their frustration filled loss to the Oakland Raiders. Here is some perspective on this game:
There is a lot to get to today, and much to vent about. I stepped back and really replayed what happened in the Ravens loss to the Raiders in my head. There are a few things we can take away from this game. There is also a couple common themes that were prevalent throughout the first four games.
The Ravens lost this game in the most frustrating way possible. Their offense was bottled up for most of the day and quite frankly it took the air out of the stadium of screaming fans.

The Ravens put us through an emotional roller with more dips than peaks.
