Just after a four day rest, the Ravens were back playing football last night against the Browns. Browns and Ravens are always games for the defenses to show up, and they did. Ravens won but almost lost it with a 30 yard pass that could of been shocking to see. Flacco had another impressive showing and beside an interception in the end zone, it was amazing to admire his passes to Boldin in the second half. Flacco even ran a one yard TD and showed his juke skills. The refs to me, had no implication in the game which is always nice to see. It was a passing exhibition and the running backs were held to under 50 rushing yards. Flacco had over 350 yard passing and Brandon Weeden over 300.
The difference was Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, combined for 15 catches 228 yards and 1 TD.
The receiving crew for the Browns were missing catches left and right but still was just one catch from winning the ball game. Browns mvp was Phil Dawson kicking two 50+ yard field goals. So the defense almost let up and lost the game, but they didn’t. So the Browns receivers dropped perfect passes by Weeden, it happens. Flacco threw a pick that was well read by the defender and made a great catch.
Every QB in the league will have those type of passes, the key is to not let it bother you and keep fighting and that is exactly what Joe did. Next up for Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens is the Chiefs.
