I’m still shocked at how the Ravens utterly dominated the action today in Baltimore but perhaps no one is more stunned that their opponents today. This was a huge statement game from the purple and black as they drew first blood in the race to the AFC North title.
Here are some other thoughts rattling around my head after today’s shellacking.
- I guess the Offensive Line didn’t need to practice together after all. They allowed Joe Flacco to get quite comfortable with his progressions and were more than solid in the run game. (170 Total Yds. Rushing) That meant that my biggest concern with this match-up was rendered null and void.
- My second worry was turnovers and that was taken care of as Baltimore’s defense pounded away all day at Pittsburgh to cause seven total while the Ravens did not give the ball away once. There’s your ball game.
- Baltimore has 20 new players on the roster and they all had a hand in some way in today’s win. The new vets especially, as Bryant McKinnie seemed to swallow up blockers, Vonta Leach was always pushing forward and Bernard Pollard was laying hits in the backfield.
