BTN will provide the team rankings of the Ravens opponents for an easy comparison tool for the remainder of the season.


 

The Red Zone % took a major hit and dropped from 16th to 22nd.  By now the passing game should have improved, but continues to struggle and ranks 28th.  Other than the Colts and Giants games the defense has posted every week while the offense, although respectable, has averaged only 10.4 points in the five losses.


 

Check back each week to see if Cam’s new system is leading the boys in the right direction this year. Here’s where the offense stands after week 15.
