1. Folding against the Titans:

Losing to the Titans after having a two-possession lead in the fourth quarter was about as frustrating as a loss could get. The Ravens were doing what it took to win the game and then everything just went the other way.

The mistakes in this game are enough to drive you nuts. Jackson had a pick that really hurt the momentum of the game. A screen pass that probably would have won the game in regulation was stopped because of a false start. The defense practically carried A.J. Brown into the end zone. Take your pick. There were a lot of bad things in this game.

One time problems you can almost live with. The issue against the Titans is that the Ravens lost all margin of error for the rest of the season, and that happened because of a pattern of problems as persistent as cold weather in the winter.

Key moments equal key mistakes. The late-game lead equals collapses or finishes that are way too dramatic. The Ravens’ problems weren’t new and this game was a final straw. It was the “Oh come on” moment of the season. The “you have got to be kidding me” breaking point for fans. This was hard to watch. At this point, it was like watching dysfunction on a loop.

Let’s be honest, we’ve all seen this movie before. That’s why this game was the worst moment of the season easily. Not only did the team seemingly give up at the end, but the team lost because of lessons they didn’t learn in the previous four losses.

Next. What makes the Ravens a viable contender. dark

So there you have it Baltimore. These are your five losses ranked by how quickly you could get over them. These are the Ravens’ five losses ranked by the amount of frustration they provided. Think about how hard the Titans game was to watch. Think about this season with this perspective: In a season where Pittsburgh swept the Ravens another team gave them their worst loss. I didn’t know that was possible.
