Ravens QB Flacco won't need to adjust without Smith, others

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The absence of two veteran receivers and his go-to tight end won't change a thing for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Facing the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in an important AFC North matchup, the Ravens (1-3) will be without leading receiver Steve Smith and speedy Michael Campanaro, both of whom were injured last Thursday night in a win over the Steelers...

Joe Flacco thinks Ravens will be 'alright' despite receiver injuries

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will probably be without his top target against this visiting Browns this Sunday, but he thinks his offense can manage. Flacco will likely take the field with Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown, and sixth-round rookie Darren Waller as his top three receivers, thanks to a rash of injuries. Steve Smith Sr., who leads the team with 29 catches for 373 yards, is...

Three players Joe Flacco will have to lean on in Week 5

It’s scary thinking about the fact that Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will have the following targets in Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns; Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown and Darren Waller. This is not the lineup Flacco or the Ravens expected at all to be left with in just their fifth game of the regular season, and a divisional game at that. Baltimore’s season...

Risers And Fallers From Ravens' 23-20 Win Over Steelers

For the fourth week in a row, the Baltimore Ravens saw themselves down by one score late in the fourth quarter. The quarter had been one of offensive frustration with back-to-back drives ending in failed fourth down attempts. The second drive gave the Pittsburgh Steelers the ball back in Ravens' territory with an excellent chance to kill both the clock and any hope the Ravens could...

Ravens running game emerges from a deep slumber…

Maybe the biggest takeaway for the Ravens in their tight decision over the Steelers last Thursday night was their offensive line took charge against a fairly stout Steelers defensive line as the game went on. For the first time all season, the Ravens O-Line was opening up big running holes. Pass protection left some room for major improvement, but run-blocking took a huge step...

Joe Flacco deserves more from the Baltimore Ravens

It’s not easy being Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Despite the Super Bowl ring (and MVP honors), despite the six-year, $120.6 million contract (with $29 million in guaranteed money) that resulted from it and despite being one of the NFL’s most durable players, having never missed a start, it hasn’t been an easy eight years for him. And it’s mainly because he...

Ravens overcome some buffoon coaching decisions and decent play by Mike Vick to win in OT, 23-20…

I don’t know why John Harbaugh disdained two high-percentage FG attempts by Justin Tucker in regulation when he called a fake FG run and then later called a QB sneak by Joe Flacco on 4th and a long 1—- both of which failed miserably— but he got a third chance to win the game due to the Steelers’ missed FG’s by Josh Scobee….and the Ravens got to 1-3 by the skin of their...

WATCH: Joe Flacco Looks Pretty Rough After Getting Stuffed Hard By Steelers On Fourth Down

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a rough night Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense. It wasn't so much that his number were bad (which they were), but they beat the poor guy to death. In regulation alone the man was sacked five times by the Steelers, but the worst punishment appeared to come during a failed fourth down attempt.It's hard to look rougher than...

Joe Flacco: Rather have Big Ben playing in Thursday’s game

The Baltimore Ravens are 0-3 and are on the precipice of a completely lost season should the team lose to the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. So why is Joe Flacco insisting he’d rather see Ben Roethlisberger suiting up for the Steelers as opposed to watching the game on crutches from the sideline? Blame it on his competitive fire, in part, as well as his...

Ravens Schedule 2015: Baltimore Football Game Dates & Start Time

Many people look at the Baltimore Ravens and just assume that the defense is going to carry the day. If the Ravens are going to be successful in 2015, it is going to be because of the right arm of quarterback Joe Flacco. If Flacco can prove he is an elite quarterback who is more than just a Super Bowl winner, Baltimore may be on to something this season. A division that seems to...

Everything is relative… you lose your first 3 games all of which you could have won and held the late lead in at various points of the 4th quarter… Okay, it takes time for a new offensive coordinator (Marc Trestman) to gel with his limited offense— limited that is by the absence of any real #1 wide receiver talent outside of Steve Smith, plus the damaged offensive line’s...

Gut check time for Flacco, Ravens

The Ravens are 0-3 for the first time in franchise history, and quarterback Joe Flacco thinks his entire team is lacking confidence to finish games. Baltimore has come up just short in the fourth quarter in all three of its games and could very well be 3-0 if just a few plays broke in its direction. In Week 1 in Denver, receiver Steve Smith and tight end Crockett Gillmore saw potential...
