Ravens Crush The Browns: The Good, Bad & Ugly
The Ravens were down 7-6 at halftime. This was a nationally televised game. I bet much of that national audience turned the game off at that point. It was an ugly first half. You had a team without a win and a team playing down to their level. It felt like the Ravens were sleep walking through this game in the first half.
The Ravens wasted opportunities and made mistakes in the first half. The pass protection was just awful in the first act of this game. I don’t know what Dennis Pitta thought he was doing, but it clearly was not blocking. When Alex Lewis left the game with an ankle injury, it was a scary sight.

At the end of the day the slow start was ugly. It was somewhat understandable considering the Ravens circumstances, but it was ugly nonetheless. The Ravens arguably put together their best game of the season, and they still haven’t had a game where they’ve put it all together for four good quarters.
