Keys to the game

October 12, 1998|By Mike Preston

1 The Ravens' special teams played poorly again, particularly Harper Le Bel, who unleashed five bad snaps on punts.

2 The Ravens' offense had no consistency and rushed just 18 times for 36 yards, the lowest total in the team's three-year history in Baltimore.

3 The Ravens were 1-for-15 on third-down plays, failing to convert until their final drive of the game.

They said it

The winners...

"The other team has been the one that has come up with the one big play that's killed us, but we didn't let that happen."

Kenny Holmes,Oilers defensive end

...the losers

"We're supposed to win these games, play at a different level. But when was the last time we won two games in a row? I can't remember."

Wally Williams, Ravens guard
