It took an entire 10 minute overtime period Womens Lamar Jackson Jersey , but the Ravens fell to 3-2 on the season as they lost 12-9 to the Cleveland Browns. Baltimore’s offense was anemic, while their defense was stout for a vast majority of the game. After being hyped up as one of the best teams in the AFC heading into Week 5, the Ravens were far from that on Sunday.1. Checkdown Joe‘Fluke-O’ is an infamous nickname that FS1’s Skip Bayless has given to Joe Flacco, and it may be an extremely accurate moniker. Flacco has been inconsistent, especially in the regular season, for a majority of his career. He has put together stretches of dominant performances while compiling several ugly games in the same year. Through the first five weeks of this season, Flacco has been more ‘January Joe,’ but against the Browns, he struggled mightily. Flacco made several horrible decisions and was extremely inaccurate for much of the game. The deadly accuracy he displayed last week against the Steelers was non-existent at FirstEnergy Stadium. Despite the entire offense being horrendous, the leader of the team let them down when it mattered most. ‘Checkdown Joe’ is another nickname that Flacco earned last season, as he finished with a league-low 5.72 yards per attempt. In Week 5, he finished with a measly 5.32 yards per attempt. Although his day was plagued with drops, and he was constantly under duress, Flacco failed to deliver, despite receiving plenty of ample opportunities in regulation and overtime. 2. Shuffle upHow many games does offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg need to watch where his offensive line struggles before he makes a change? Although James Hurst was serviceable at right tackle www.ravensauthorizedshops.com , Alex Lewis and Matt Skura continued to get bullied inside. Cleveland’s defensive line is stout, but this group was atrocious. Orlando Brown Jr. showed enough in the preseason to earn an opportunity. By putting Brown Jr. at right tackle, Hurst could move to left guard, a position he showcased an adept ability to play last year. In this scenario, the center position would be an open competition between Lewis, Skura and Hroniss Grasu. 3. Just run itBaltimore finished with 57 pass attempts to 25 rushing attempts, which is an inexcusable ratio. Alex Collins finished with 59 rushing yards off of 12 carries, while Javorius Allen had 34 yards. Taking into consideration the high-level Cleveland’s secondary was playing at, the Ravens’ pass-heavy game plan was irrational. They were having success at various points throughout the game, yet when it mattered most, Mornhinweg stuck with the aerial attack. The receivers were struggling to create separation, and their tight ends were a non-factor in the passing game. The Ravens shied away from outside zone concepts despite their success. After putting together two masterful game plans, Mornhinweg failed to deliver against a talented Browns defense. 4. Captain obvious The Ravens had a tremendous game defensively in spite of rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield who finished with 342 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Don Martindale’s unit was a stinger, allowing only 12 points. The key to their success was their exotic looks on third downs that led to the Browns converting just six of 19 opportunities. Even without Tim Williams Baltimore Ravens Womens T-Shirt , the pass-rush was alive and well. They totaled five sacks, including one from Brandon Williams. The defense may have allowed a couple of significant plays in overtime, but this unit should not be held responsible for the loss. 5. This offense was offensive Aside from the questionable play calling, the offense could not execute, specifically on third downs. They finished four for 16, and zero for three in the red zone, including a drop by Michael Crabtree in the end zone that could have won the game. Crabtree’s performance may not look as bad as it was on paper since he finished with six receptions for 66 yards; however, his two drops were untimely and drive killers. Although his red zone incompletion may not go down in the official stat book as a drop, it bounced off of his hands and should have been caught.Baltimore had 15 drives in this game, and they started at their own 34-yard line or better seven times. The Ravens took over in Cleveland territory one time, while they only started inside their own 16-yard line three times. Field position was far from the issue, and considering how good their defense played, it was pathetic that Baltimore only amounted nine points. 6. The Lamar Jackson package needs to be fine-tunedThe ‘Lamar Jackson Package’ worked well against the Steelers. However, one week later, Baltimore did not build off of the looks they showed. In order to stay unpredictable and confuse defenses Baltimore Ravens Hats , play designs and concepts need to evolve and grow. The set of plays were essentially the same. Power run concepts with Jackson are not the solution. Mornhinweg could be saving his best stuff for later in the season, but in theory, running RPOs with Jackson would work well. The linebackers may overcommit to the run and Jackson could hit the open receiver, or they would honor the route of the receiver and Jackson/Alex Collins would have a less crowded box to run in. 7. Will the real Ravens please stand up?After the quarter pole of the season, Baltimore was considered one of the top contenders in the AFC. One week should not make-or-break that notion. However, with a tough slate of games upcoming for the Ravens, the true value of this team will be revealed. It is hard to get a read on Baltimore. They have looked atrocious in two of their three road games while looking dominant in their two home games. OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Lamar Jackson has gotten most of the headlines, yet the former Louisville quarterback is merely one of several rookies whose contributions have helped the Baltimore Ravens move within striking distance of the AFC North title.Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner and 32nd overall pick in the draft, has won five or six since replacing veteran Joe Flacco at quarterback in mid-November. Undrafted running back Gus Edwards, right tackle Orlando Brown and tight ends Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews have also fortified a revamped offense that's averaging 25 points per game with Jackson calling the plays."There are a bunch of kids out there," 34-year-old guard Marshal Yanda said. "When I look out in the huddle and (31-year-old receiver Michael) Crabtree isn't out there, I feel like I'm a dinosaur." With a victory over Cleveland (7-7-1) on Sunday, the Ravens will win the division for the first time since 2012 and end a three-year playoff drought. Baltimore (9-6) put itself in this position with a 22-10 upset over the Chargers last Saturday.After the Ravens fell behind 13-10 in the third quarter Baltimore Ravens Womens Hoodie , Jackson and Andrews connected on a 68-yard touchdown pass to put Baltimore ahead for good. Brown helped with the pass protection and Hurst ran an underneath route that helped Andrews get open."It was awesome. You dream of plays like that, especially as a rookie," Andrews said Wednesday. "Lamar threw an incredible ball. Right over the linebacker, right in stride. It really made my job easy. And the blocking up front was great."Edwards did his part with a 92-yard rushing performance, upping his total to 578 since taking over for injured Alex Collins on the same day Jackson stepped in as a starter.Hurst has yet to live up to his potential as the 25th overall pick, in part because he had foot surgery over the summer and got off to a slow start. But as a group, the Ravens rookies deserve high marks."Very talented guys, and they've worked really hard," coach John Harbaugh said. "They've earned their way into the starting lineup and have maintained that position by playing well. The rookie class has done a really good job."The 6-foot-8, 345-pound Brown played a reserve role over the first six weeks before getting his first NFL start on Oct. 21. The former Oklahoma standout has started every game since."He's definitely doing really well. I'm proud of him," Yanda said. "He's kept his head down and keeps grinding. It hasn't been too big or too much for him. I respect that."The final draft by general manager Ozzie Newsome, who will retire after the season, began with Hurst before a trade landed Jackson. Brown and Andrews followed as third-rounders before Newsome selected cornerback Anthony Averett and linebacker Kenny Young, both of whom subsequently made their mark on special teams.Sixth-round pick Bradley Bozeman has played 13 games on the offensive line with one start.A year ago, the Ravens needed only to beat Cincinnati in the season finale to reach the playoffs. The situation this year is eerily similar Womens Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , and the hope all along has been that the newcomers would help Baltimore clear the final obstacle."Right away the older guys, and even us, saw we could have an impact on this team," said Andrews, who has 30 catches for 498 yards and three scores. "They were close last year. They were one game away, and they brought us in here to win this last game."The rookies gathered in spring to begin the process. Three draft picks —safety DeShon Elliott, tackle Greg Senat and receiver Jaleel Scott — are on injured reserve. The rest could be playing football into February."We got here like May 3 and I feel like we've been here forever," Brown said. "It's been a grind.Next year should be easier, and the hope is that the rookies will benefit from the experience."We aren't playing our best football as a group. That's still years down the road," Brown said. "But it's a blessing to have the opportunity to go out there and play on Sundays."
