Fantasy Football Champs:
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco finally stepped up in a road game Sunday at Washington, throwing three touchdowns in an overtime loss.Fantasy Spin:Flacco came in having thrown just four touchdown passes in six road games this season. He finished Sunday's game with 182 yards on 16-of-21 passing. While he's been better at home, he probably shouldn't be trusted in Week 15 versus Denver.
BEST OF MAXIM
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is playing the final season of his rookie contract and could be heading towards possible free agency in the offseason. The Ravens signal caller has been the Ravens starting quarterback since he was selected 18th overall in the first-round of the 2008 NFL Draft. The mention of Flacco’s name will spark debate about whether or not he should be considered...
The Ravens’ offense put together a nice drive on their first possession of the second quarter.
Aided by a couple penalties by the Washington defense, the Ravens’ offense moved down the field.
The drive commenced with a Joe Flacco touchdown to Anquan Boldin, a 31-yard strike, for a tie ball game. It’s 14-14 in the second quarter.
At the half, the Ravens were winning 21-14. A Joe Flacco fumble gifted the Redskins a Kai Forbath field goal. That made the game 21-17 Ravens.
On the ensuing drive, the Ravens were driving then Flacco threw an interception. The ball was tipped by Barry Cofield and Flacco was under duress.
Flacco has two turnovers this afternoon, but the Ravens still lead 21-17 in the third quarter.
Two of Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin's three catches went for touchdowns Sunday against Washington.Fantasy Spin:Boldin had 78 yards in the game. The veteran has caught three touchdowns in the last two games after going 10 games without one. He's quietly on pace for his first 1,000-yard campaign since 2009-10.
Quite a newsworthy day for the Ravens. Earlier I wrote about Cam Cameron being fired by the team with Jim Caldwell being elevated to offensive coordinator for the rest of the season.
Some more notes to start the week.
* The Giants-Ravens game that will take place next Sunday will now be a 4:25 p.m. start, according to reports.
* Arthur Jones and Pernell McPhee, both injured in Sunday’s...
After years of being under fire, the Ravens have relieved offensive Cam Cameron of his duties. This seems to have been building for years.
To take Cameron’s place on the staff, the Ravens have elevated quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell to offensive coordinator. Caldwell was brought on this past offseason after a stint as Colts head coach.
Of the coaching move, John Harbaugh had this...
The Ravens love playing tight games. Joe Flacco and Ray Rice powered the Ravens to a 28-20 lead in the fourth quarter. Rice scored the Ravens first touchdown since the first half.
However, the defense faltered again.
With Robert Griffin III off the field due to injury, rookie Kirk Cousins came in and hit Pierre Garcon with a touchdown pass. Cousins scrambled for the two-point conversion...
Usually a team fires its offensive coordinator when it is mired in the depths of a losing season. The Ravens are 9-4 with a 2-game lead in their division race. What caused the panic that resulted in the firing of OC Cam Cameron, who's been with the Ravens since 2008 and has been a part of 5 playoff season drives since then ?
My own theory is Joe Flacco wants to run no-huddle...
The Baltimore Ravens today released offensive coordinator Cam Cameron of his coaching duties and promoted quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell to take his place. Ravens fans rejoice; your wishes have come true. It looks like Christmas has come early this season, at least here in Baltimore.
Caldwell hasn’t called an offensive play in his 12-year coaching career. But he has mentored possibly...
The Baltimore Ravens lost to the red-hot Redskins and rookie sensation Robert Griffin III after failing to protect a late game lead against Washington's other rookie sensation, Kirk Cousins. So, what do they do? Fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, of course.
Cameron has been under fire for years for unimaginative offenses and under-using RB Ray Rice. The Ravens...
“The Ravens fell to the Redskins in overtime today, their second loss in a row, to drop to...
With another playoff appearance on the horizon, the Baltimore Ravens went into Landover, MD to face the Washington Redskins in the Battle of the Beltway. Coming off their first four-game win streak since 2008, the Redskins were becoming a force in the NFC east. Two rookies, Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris, had led the Redskins to a respectable 6-6, even with a tattered defense...
