In a wild Sunday afternoon game , the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Denver Broncos 27-14. Despite how poorly the Ravens started, they found a way to battle back and take complete control. Baltimore’s offense bounced back in a big way, specifically with an improved game plan, in week three, while the defense held up well despite the absences of C.J. Mosley and Michael Pierce. 1. Marty Mornhinweg should be one of the biggest winners of week 3Similar to the Bengals’ game plan in week 2, Denver ran a fair amount of man coverage. However, unlike in Cincinnati, the Ravens’ receivers were able to create separation due to an improved scheme. They ran several high-low concepts, and their receivers had more time to get open as the protection held up nicely. Mornhinweg also made an extra effort to get Alex Collins involved in the offense. Although the pass to run ratio was still far from ideal, Collins carried the ball more times against Denver than he did in the first two weeks combined. He finished with 68 rushing yards and one touchdown. Collins also caught three passes for six yards. 2. Don’t call it a comebackJoe Flacco had one of his worst performances in recent memory last week. Blaming Flacco entirely for the collapse in Cincinnati would be inaccurate, but he was far from satisfactory. He missed on several throws Baltimore Ravens Womens T-Shirt , while consistently making horrible decisions with the football. Flashing forward to week three, he was seemingly a different quarterback. Although Flacco missed on a couple of throws, he made excellent decisions with the foo 3bff410f3341775eb8acee35da779247.jpg tball. The Ravens’ offense did not turn the ball over. However, there were some close calls, including a Flacco fumble. Although his performances at home compared to showings on the road could be a cause for concern, Flacco rebounded well.3. The Ravens still have an issue along their offensive lineThe box score shows that Flacco was only sacked twice, but that does not tell the whole story. Baltimore’s offensive line was still an issue. Flacco was rushed on several occasions. Matt Skura, who has come under criticism early in the season, had a noteworthy performance. Currently, the Ravens’ most significant issue is left guard. Alex Lewis gave up multiple pressures, including a strip-sack. He needs to improve in pass protection. Otherwise Baltimore Ravens Hats , Baltimore will have to shake this unit up. 4. No C.J. Mosley, no Michael Pierce, no problemThe Ravens’ offense will likely receive most of the praise for this emphatic win. However, their defense should get a ton of credit. After allowing touchdowns on Denver’s first two drives, they did not allow another point. The Broncos also started inside Baltimore’s six-yard line on their first possession. Don Martindale’s defense completely stonewalled Denver’s highly ranked rushing attack, and they pressured Case Keenum early and often. On several occasions, they were unable to get to Keenum, but the Ravens’ edge rushers drew multiple holding penalties.Aside from Kenny Young, Tony Jefferson may have been the biggest standout performer. He was excellent in run-defense as he recorded five total tackles, including one for a loss. Jefferson also had a clutch pass breakup on fourth down to end the game. Linebacker Patrick Onwuasor, who lost his job to Young Baltimore Ravens Womens Hoodie , stepped up in Mosley’s absence. Although Peanut was solid in run-defense, his efforts in pass-defense were what made his performance more impressive. He picked off Case Keenum and would have scored if not for a Matthew Judon penalty. 5. The Ravens are already seeing their 2018 draft class paying dividendsThe Ravens finished the 2018 NFL Draft with 12 new players, and with nine of them on the active roster, it was expected that more than a few would make a significant impact this season. Despite only six 2018 draft picks being active in week three — Lamar Jackson, Kenny Young, Bradley Bozeman, Mark Andrews, Orlando Brown Jr., and Zach Sieler — the Ravens saw a couple of rookies make significant contributions.Kenny Young was all over the field. His sideline to sideline speed was on full display as he was excellent in both run defense and coverage. Young finished with a team-high ten tackles, including one for a loss. His ability to cover tight ends and running backs will only help Baltimore moving forward.After selecting Hayden Hurst with the 25th overall pick, the expectation was that he would emerge as Flacco’s ‘security blanket.’ With Hurst on the sidelines due to a stress fracture in his foot Womens Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , Mark Andrews was in line for a larger role, and he has taken full advantage. Andrews had a touchdown last week, and he followed that performance up with a two-catch 59-yard showing. Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey.
