8. The defense making big plays, not just getting stops:

While we’re talking about the defense, let’s talk about the defense getting big plays. The Ravens defense has been good. They don’t give up a lot of points. They don’t typically give up a lot of yards. They have been good at making in game adjustments (see them stopping the Broncos and Steelers momentum swings). While the Ravens have had trouble finding a punt returner, their punt returners have been quite busy, because the Ravens are good at getting third down stops.

The Ravens have to get better at delivering the big play. I’m talking, interceptions, fumbles and sacks. The Ravens rank seventh in sacking the quarterback, so that’s hard to complain about. It does seem like a team with Terrell Suggs, Matt Judon, Za’Darius Smith and more pass rushers on top of that, should be leading the league in sacks, but this is okay. The Ravens only have five picks and one recovered fumble. The Ravens may be getting a fair number of sacks, but they need to use pass rush to get more takeaways.

The Titans are a -1 in the turnover ratio. The Titans are not getting good play from their quarterback. If ever there was a week for the defense to take matters into their own hands and turn defense into offense, this is the week. Turnovers are something the Ravens Flock expects from their defense.
