Behind The Numbers: Tracking the Ravens Passing Game

Street Talk Behind The Numbers: Tracking the Ravens Passing Game

Posted in Street Talk

With six games remaining the Ravens still have a solid shot at securing a wildcard slot.

 

While the defense seems to be hitting their stride, the offense continues to decline and last week versus the Colts they were held without a touchdown for the first time this year.


 

Unless the team improves in the Red Zone, quickly, they will not make the playoffs. The Ravens Red Zone scoring percentage of 51.6% ranks them 17th in the NFL and 6th among the 10 AFC teams with a .500 record or better.


 

Check BTN next week to see where Joe Flacco and the passing game stand.
