Secondary, A Primary Concern
The Baltimore Ravens currently have the NFL’s 24th ranked pass defense yielding 263.2 yards per game and they rank 21st in opponent’s passer rating (94.0). Changes are needed particularly now that Jimmy Smith is out for the season after undergoing surgery on his foot.
While Sunday’s game against the Titans isn’t mathematically a must-win game, practically speaking, it is! A loss against a (2-6) team at home against a rookie quarterback in all likelihood would send the Ravens 2014 playoff hopes spiraling out of control.
This week the NFL announced its slate of games to be played in London next season at Wembley Stadium. You are probably pleased to learn that the Baltimore Ravens are not among the participants. Could they be in the future? Absolutely. Could the Ravens lose a home game to London? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Remember the days when the Ravens defense would strike fear in opponents? When they had players who could quickly alter the outcome of games? Today the Ravens don’t have such players on either side of the ball and that’s a reflection on the organization.
Are the Ravens genuinely a playoff contender? Will they eventually punch their ticket to the postseason dance or will, without Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, once again be at home watching on TV? For all of this week’s posts click HERE.
