loss to the Bengals: Offensive edition What a difference a week makes. After Baltimore’s resounding 47-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills in week 1 Justice Hill Baltimore Ravens Jersey , many were pounding tables claiming the Ravens were ‘legit contenders.’ Four days later, Baltimore was soundly defeated by divisional rival the Cincinnati Bengals 34-23, and the narrative has quickly changed. The questions about quarterback Joe Flacco have arisen again, while the calls for Lamar Jackson are getting a little bit louder. The offensive line, specifically Matt Skura and James Hurst, are getting thrown into the fire. The question is what did we learn from the offense in Baltimore’s defeat.1. Orlando Brown Jr. should be the right tackleThe Ravens’ offensive line had one of their worst performances in recent memory, and the final stat line does not tell the whole story. Flacco was sacked four times Womens Justice Hill Jersey , but he was under pressure on seemingly every snap. James Hurst allowed multiple pressures, and he was an issue in run-blocking as well. Simply swapping Brown Jr. for Hurst will not solve all of Baltimore’s problems, but it will be a significant improvement. The offensive line should go under substantial changes, and it should be as follows: LT - Ronnie Stanley - LG James Hurst - C Alex Lewis - RG Marshal Yanda - RT Orlando Brown Jr. 2. Marty Mornhinweg continues to leave a lot to be desiredBaltimore’s game plan was questionable, to say the least (film piece outlining full offensive game plan will be published Tuesday). The Bengals ran a ton of Cover-2 and man coverage against the Raven, which should have allowed Baltimore to attack to seams and flats. That was far from the case in the first half, but they did improve in the second half. The bigger issue was when Cincinnati clearly showed man-coverage Lamar Jackson Jersey 2019 , Mornhinweg’s plays relied upon their receivers beating their matchup one-on-one, which is questionable against talented cornerbacks. Instead of scheming up ‘man-beaters’ such as rub concepts or high-low routes, Baltimore attempted to win their matchups without a scheme. The Bengals played off-coverage on Mark Andrews on several occasions, but Flacco nor Mornhinweg made them pay for it. 3. Joe Flacco’s fairytale season was shatteredThroughout the entire offseason, training camp, and preseason, this was labeled the year of Joe Flacco. Many were anticipating that he would have the best season of his career because he is ‘motivated’ by the addition of Lamar Jackson White Lamar Jackson Jersey , and he still might. However, Flacco displayed in week two why the Ravens wanted to ‘motivate him,’ or move on from the veteran signal-caller. He is poor against the blitz, and his ability to read defenses is questionable. Flacco’s accuracy was another significant issue on Thursday night, and with a talented slate of pass-rushers coming up on the schedule, he will have a ton to prove. To blame the entire struggled of the offense on Flacco would be invalid, but he deserves a sizable chunk of the blame due to his poor timing on routes White Mark Andrews Jersey , inaccurate throws, and poor identification of coverages. Against a legitimate NFL defense for the first time this season, Flacco failed this test. He will have plenty of more tests to prove himself, but the clock is ticking. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will become the youngest quarterback to start a playoff game when the Ravens host the Chargers on Sunday and his efforts in December are a big reason why he’s in that position.Jackson led Baltimore to four wins in five tries over his first full month as the team’s starter, including a 22-10 win over the same team he’ll be facing in his postseason debut. Should the Ravens win, they may have a chance to go up against the Chiefs in an attempt to reverse the result of their only December loss.Jackson ran for 39 yards in that Week 16 win, which was the lowest output of the month. He ran for 366 yards and three touchdowns over all five December games while also throwing for 786 yards Mark Andrews Jersey 2019 , four touchdowns and no interceptions.The total package was enough for the NFL to name Jackson as the offensive rookie of the month for the final month of the season.
