A few weeks ago BTN pondered when Billick would open up the offense. BTN thinks you saw the reins come off last week versus Pittsburgh. Clayton and Williams are legitimate deep threats, while Mason and Heap are the chain movers. The running game is what it is…and combined with the efficient, if not flashy passing game, has been enough for the Ravens to have the number two seeding and a first round bye in their sights with one game left.
Hey Indy, thanks for that extra Christmas gift!
Check back next week to see if the trends continue.
