That was one ugly football game between the Baltimore Ravens (4-2) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5). The Ravens didn't get their first first down until the third quarter and the Jaguars beat Baltimore 12-7 Monday night. This was a game that didn't see the Ravens score until there was 2:02 left on the clock and, going in to the scoring drive, Baltimore had 56 net yards on offense. John Harbaugh had a questionable call choosing to onside kick instead of kicking it off after Baltimore's touchdown which set up Jacksonville's game-clinching field goal.  Josh Scobee provided all of Jacksonville's offense with four field goals, including three 50-plus-yard field goals. Joe Flacco threw an interception to end the game and hand Blaine Gabbert his first win as a starting quarterback.

Here's the situation: The Ravens just scored their first and only touchdown of the game. There were two minutes and two seconds left in the game. Baltimore had two of their timeouts remaining...

Lethargic Ravens Lose to Struggling Jaguars 12-7

It was an absolute debacle last night for the Baltimore Ravens, a complete implosion, an ugly display of football unmatched in the John Harbaugh era.

Harbaugh defends onside kick

Earlier today, I wrote about John Harbaugh's decision to have Billy Cundiff try and execute an onside kick with the Ravens down 9-7 in the fourth quarter Monday night. At his afternoon press conference, Harbaugh defended his decision saying it was the right one, according to multiple reports. I'm still going to disagree with him and believe that had they kicked it deep...

Inability to move ball against Jaguars has coaching staff, players searching for answersIt took an abysmal 60 minutes of offense, and a performance that Ravens coach John Harbaugh admitted was about as "bad as you can play" for the familiar questions to return, and the doubt to seep in after what had been an encouraging start to the 2011 season.

Ravens: Tuesday hangover

Oh, what a night.

Unfortunately, the Ravens and Flacco weighed in on the wrong side of that argument. Head coach John Harbaugh will try to explain what happened at his second-day news briefing...

Who’s To Blame For The Ravens Loss To The Jags?

I shared my quick reaction following the loss on Monday and was pretty heated. I’ve followed the 24 hour rule and let it digest before I wrote anything else about it.To begin, let’s talk about who’s not to blame. The Ravens defense played lights out. Even though that’s expected when they’re facing an offense led by a rookie quarterback, it should be noted. Allowing only...
