Recap: How the Ravens blew what was supposed to be their second-consecutive win?

I called it. From the way the season has been going, and the way the Baltimore Ravens have had dramatic swings in performances during the first quarter of the season, I had a feeling the Ravens would catch a down swing against their rival, and also catch a tough break.
