The purple and black were rolling. They were absolutely rolling. They were rolling to the tune of 17-0. Cyrus Jones muffed a punt and then the entire thing changed. The Ravens momentum got taken away. It was a disastrous moment. Some bad things happened after that point for Baltimore, but that was the ugly moment that set everything in motion. The Ravens went into the half with a 17-13. Jones muffed a chance for the Ravens to add to the lead. It was a monumental shift in this game.
Mark Ingram’s fumble was awful as well. The thing is however that these fumbles are about as different as they get. Ingram made a mistake going full speed, trying to churn out extra yards. Jones just muffed a punt. He made a bonehead mistake that ruined the 17-0 party of the purple and black.
This was an up and down game. It was a roller coaster of emotions. The problem is that the Ravens allowed the Patriots to make this one interesting. Take a second to realize something. At the end of the day nothing matters except for the fact that Baltimore got the biggest win of their season, against an undefeated team. Baltimore beat a team that most analysts thought would win. They took the national stage and showed off how good the Baltimore Ravens were.
