The Baltimore Ravens just prove week in week out how they are capable of winning in many different ways. The Chiefs had plenty of chances to score but fumbles at the goal line and interceptions were their demise. Jamaal Charles ran wild in the first half with great blocking and Cassel had an average game and caused all of their 4 turnovers. Ray Rice ran for 102 yards and Justin Tucker kicked three field goals, which were the only points for the Ravens. Ed Reed had a fumble recovery in the end zone that Cassel just did not handle correctly. It was not a pretty win but a 9-6 victory is much needed.
The game proved the defense for the Ravens has some holes and weaknesses and playing on the road can be very difficult.
Playing in games like this is very important to prove to themselves they can grind out a victory.
The rushing defense will need to adjust because the rest of the schedule just gets tougher with great backs and running schemes. The pass defense for the ravens are very stingy with picks and tipped balls that Ed Reed just lives for, so lets hope they can continue with that.
Next up for the Ravens are the discombobulated Cowboys. This will be a very good test for the defense to stand up and make some room at top of the AFC North. The Cowboys are hungry to prove the NFL world they are ready to impress after their bye week. They do have a very powerful offense but they seem to always be impatient. The Ravens will have to show they can score touchdowns with their passing attack. The key will be to getting Tony Romo out of his comfort zone and force him to throw wild passes that Ed Reed will be looking for. Ravens will be home at M&T Bank Stadium and I expect the fans to be as crazy and excited for another home win! Let’s Go Ravens! My prediction is Ravens win it 24-21.
