Ravens Fall Just Short

Minnesota Edges Out Ravensravens-logo

The Ravens gave fans an up and down roller coaster ride of emotions on Sunday.  The first half opened with Brett Favre and the Vikings offense taking it down the field for touchdowns on their first two drives giving the Vikings a 14 to nothing lead.  The Ravens finally got some points on the board before half time with a field goal to make the game 14-3.

The game looked to be one sided at the half and the third quarter didn’t give much hope but Joe “Cool” remained calm and confident and in the fourth quarter along with some help from Ray Rice and Derrick Mason brought the Ravens back from despair to finally go ahead in the game 31-30.  Favre and the Vikings came right back with a field goal to go ahead 33-31.  The Ravens had time left on the clock and the offense did not disappoint with a drive that led the team to within field goal position and only 2 seconds  left in the game.  Unfortunately it was all for naught as Steve Hauschka missed the uprights to the left to give the Ravens their third straight loss.

I’m sure some fans instantly thought about Matt Stover at this point but lets not forget that no matter how good of a football team you are, it’s difficult in the National Football League to spot a team 14 points in the first quarter and still come back to win the game.  The Ravens will have a few extra days to ready themselves for their next opponent as they have a bye week before playing Denver at home.
