Street Talk BEHIND THE NUMBERS: Tracking the Ravens Passing Game

After only two games it’s clear that Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron has opened up the playbook and the passing numbers are all headed in the right direction. Second year QB Joe Flacco looks to have picked up where he left off last year and the dreaded “sophomore slump” seems unlikely.


 

The QB rating stat is the most important number to consider and having Flacco ranked in the top 10 is a major sign of his progression.  Ray Rice as a starter has increased the amount of passes going to the running backs compared to last year.


 

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