Steelers Break Curse In Baltimore

Credit WBAL News Radio 1090

Baltimore's offense didn't show up at all and quarterback Joe Flacco threw two interceptions that ended any chance of a comeback for the Ravens in the second half.

Baltimore didn't sign a veteran starter on offense until 94 days into free agency.

Prior to Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the public address announcer asked the crowd "to pray that we as a nation embrace kindness, unity, equality and justice for all Americans". "One thing you want to do is not necessarily go out in the (season-opening) Cincinnati game and throw the guy right into the fire and all that kind of stuff". Jesse James is among the most underrated tight ends.

Sunday's beatdown by the Steelers once again revealed the Ravens' offensive struggles, as Joe Flacco and company continue to underperform. For the season, Brown has 30 receptions for 388 yards and one touchdown.

"We knew it was possible that we were going to get it", Suggs said of the booing. It was the third time in as many games the Steelers allowed 235 passing yards or fewer. The game kicks off at 1:00 PM EST in M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, Maryland. That was a total of $15.75 million in guaranteed money, which is dwarfed by the $56.75 million given to the defense. Yes, he still has an arm and the ability to read defenses and pick out targets. "The team as a whole played a lot better". There is also the question of whether or not the offense can produce on a week to week basis.

This includes the AFC South rivalry match between the Tennessee Titans and the Houston Texans, the NFC North matchup between the Detroit Lions and the Minnesota Vikings, as well as a couple of AFC North matchups. "Something has to get better there".

But his second fumble of the season set up Pittsburgh's first touchdown, and it's clear his playing time will be determined by his ability to hold onto the football. Running back Kenneth Dixon sustained a season-ending knee injury just before the start of training camp, and starting left guard Alex Lewis tore a labrum in his shoulder during camp and was placed on injured reserve.

"It's always frustrating when you can't score points". We have to keep stressing it. "That's nothing more than a competitor wanting the ball every single play".

"I think we really needed that game Chicago", he said. I'm more than confident that we will. "There's so many great things we can do, but we've got to take advantage of that". As a unit, the Ravens have the talent, speed, tenacity and hitting power to be absolutely disruptive and game-changing, but they're wearing down.

ABOUT LAST WEEK: Both teams are coming off upset losses.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, "Last week, we're past it. You just have to improve".
