The Baltimore Ravens Struggles: 5 Stats That Say It All
5. The Offense Needs More Star Power:
The Ravens offense has only had two players score a receiving touchdown. Mike Wallace has three receiving touchdowns. Steve Smith Sr. has two. Dennis Pitta is the Ravens leading receiver with 34 receptions. Smith Sr. has 27 while Mike Wallace 25. When you look at this offense, there is no one star that the opponent has to fear. Baltimore has solid players. They have a bunch of complementary pieces. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle missing the corner pieces.
The Ravens have tried to make Breshad Perriman their big play guy. Perriman has 13 receptions for 113 yards. While the inexperienced receiver shows potential, he has been anything but spectacular. So far he has made most of the the hard catches while dropping some of the easy ones. Chris Moore has also squandered some of his chances with dropped passes.

Terrance West and discipline are the two things the Ravens need the heaviest dose of.
