Ravens: 6 studs and duds following a dreadful loss to the Dolphins
The Baltimore Ravens were utterly embarrassed by their inferior foes on Thursday night as they fell to the previously 2-7 Miami Dolphins by a final score of 22-10.
It was a game in which the Ravens never seemed to get out of first gear. If anything, they were stuck in park — or at least their offense was.
The Ravens managed just over 300 yards of offense and finished 2-of-14 on third down. Sloppy offensive line play, drops, fumbles, and a poor offensive game plan tanked what many expected to be a standout offensive performance against one of the league’s worst defenses.
And although the defense played well for most of the game against a lackluster Dolphins offense, coverage breakdowns proved to be the difference-maker.
There’s no excuse for the way this game went down.
The Ravens should have gone into Hard Rock Stadium and asserted their dominance against a Dolphins team that has looked like one of the worst in the NFL this season.
Instead, they were the ones who got embarrassed. The Dolphins asserted their dominance over the Ravens and earned a victory.
Who is to blame for this loss? As per usual, there isn’t only one culprit. And at the same time, there were at least a couple of notable standouts who attempted to salvage the night.
Let’s take a look at some studs and duds from the Ravens’ Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.
