The Ravens rushing attack was better in this game, but they still couldn’t lean on it. Alex Collins averaged 3.7 yards per carry. The offensive line actually handled their own in pass protection, but run blocking left you wanting more. The Ravens offense still required Joe Flacco to do most of the work. While the running backs were able to contribute in the passing game, it’s still an area of much needed improvement.
The Ravens had a hard time putting the Ravens away in the fourth quarter. The Ravens had a 14 point lead and allowed the Broncos to drive down the field. Patrick Onwuasor got an interception, but the Ravens had to punt it right away. With 7:22 to go in the game, the Broncos still had time to mount a comeback. The Baltimore crowd wanted to go into full tilt celebration mode but we still had a game. It’s hard to give the Ravens too much trouble over this because the Ravens sealed the deal with a fourth down stop.
The rest of the complaints to be had are going to be saved for the ugly section of this one. There wasn’t too much to nitpick about this game. There was a slow start and some things they had to fix. The second half was all Ravens.
