1. Being Scoring Impaired
The Baltimore Ravens generated MVP talk for a field goal kicker. As much as I love Justin Tucker, that is a sign of a struggling offense. The Ravens left a lot of points on the field. Punching it into the end zone wasn’t like pulling teeth, it was like pulling all of the teeth at one time. There were times where you would think getting to the end zone was harder than any task imaginable. If the Ravens proved anything this season, its that they can make things difficult.
The Ravens scored 22.2 points per game, a stat inflated by their 38-6 win against the Dolphins. In that game against the Dolphins, Baltimore scored five touchdowns. The Ravens have only scored 26 touchdowns if you took this game away. The Ravens scored less than 20 points in 5 games. Justin Tucker kicked three or more field goals in seven games this season.
The Ravens have to get better at punching the ball into the end zone. It is that simple. Think of all the chances the Ravens wasted this season. It was a frustrating season in many ways. How many times did we joke during the game, that “we should just send Tucker out now,” this year? Baltimore has to score more to win.
