The Baltimore Ravens season has come to an end. It truly felt like this was Baltimore's chance to win a Super Bowl but they came up just short. The offense only scored 10 points while the defense stood tough but the offense couldn't help them out when push came to shove.
John Harbaugh spoke to the media following the game and explained why the Ravens offense struggled so much in the loss.
John Harbaugh: "They were able to score the points and we weren't."
Yeah, when it came down to it, the Ravens weren't able to put the ball in the end zone. They were in the red zone twice but both times, the offense turned the ball over with Zay Flowers fumbling on one possession and Lamar Jackson throwing a terrible pick on the other.
That interception essentially ended the game, as the Ravens could have made it at least a 7-point game with a field goal there. While the Chiefs didn't go on to add points off that turnover, it took points away from the Ravens. At the end of the day, Baltimore had opportunities to try and make this game more competitive but the offense couldn't get it going.
While we all like to joke about how "Whoever scores more points will win the game" being lazy commentary, it's true here. Harbaugh's guys had chances to put points on the board but they couldn't come through when they needed to.
This was a tough loss for the Ravens but hopefully they learned from this loss and can be right back in the AFC title game again this time next year.
