Baltimore Ravens win 27-14: The good, bad and the ugly
The Ravens defense was really frustrating at times in this game. The game started with a blocked punt and a quick Denver touchdown. The touchdown by Royce Freeman faced no resistance. Then Emanuel Sanders took a reverse for a long touchdown. The Ravens defense didn’t do the fundamental stuff in both of these instances. The first touchdown was an example of the Ravens not playing gap sound defense. The second touchdown the Ravens failed to keep outside contain. That’s a bad look for Terrell Suggs, who has been doing this football thing for a while.
The Ravens had two kicks blocked in this game. The first was on a Sam Koch punt that set up that touchdown. Then there was a blocked field goal. Morgan Cox, who usually does such a good game that his name doesn’t come up, had a rough day as a long snapper.
This was a big win for the Baltimore Ravens. They now have a chance to bury the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 4 (a chance that is amplified if the Steelers lose on Monday Night Football). The Ravens are 2-1 and showed their fans have a lot to be excited about. Joe Flacco was sensational and the defense got things together. This is a huge win. There was good, bad and ugly moments, however the result is beautiful for Baltimore!
