Ravens Gameday

October 06, 2008|By MIKE PRESTON

QB

D

Joe Flacco was intercepted twice, and a third was nullified. He had trouble completing outs to wide receiver Derrick Mason as the Ravens had no long or intermediate passing attack.

OL

B

The Ravens had 132 rushing yards on 38 carries, and Flacco wasn't sacked. Overall, the Ravens did a solid job on a defensive line that had been dominating.

WR

C

Flacco spread the ball around as Mason had five catches for 38 yards to lead the group and tight end Todd Heap and wide receiver Mark Clayton each had four catches. But the Ravens don't have a vertical game.

RB

B-

The three-headed monster has become a two-headed monster with running backs Willis McGahee and Le'Ron McClain, who combined for 115 yards. There wasn't a passing game to complement the running game.

DL

B

The Ravens held one of the league's top running games to 47 rushing yards. The Ravens controlled the line of scrimmage, but they didn't get a sack.

LB

C+

Ray Lewis had seven tackles, and Jarret Johnson had six. But during the last drive, the Titans threw a lot of passes where linebackers should have been in pass coverage.

DB

C+

It was a patched-up group because of injuries, and it mostly played well. But there were times they were confused about coverages and who had outside and inside responsibilities.

ST

D

The Ravens allowed too much return yardage, especially on kickoffs. There were gaping holes in the middle. Sam Koch had a nice day punting, but there are rumors that kicker Matt Stover has a suitcase in his locker.
