Bengals Sweep The Ravens

Ravens Forgot To Get Off Plane In Cincinnatiravens-logo

The Ravens played a game on Sunday, or at least they were scheduled to play a game.  I’m still trying to figure out who showed up to play.

I am a huge Ravens fan and this game was hard to watch.  This game in my opinion was the worst played game of the season.  It seemed as though everyone had a bit of an off day.   The secondary of the Ravens’ defense looked slow and depleted from injuries,  Cedric Benson was running all day and OchoCinco had several nice catches throughout the game.

The biggest stat of the day was the time of possession, the Bengals had control of the ball for 40 minutes, leaving Joe Flacco and the Ravens’ offense only 20 minutes to get something done.  When the Ravens did have the ball Flacco was off on his throws, seemingly not seeing the defense very well, giving up two interceptions and overthrowing or underthowing receivers.

The Ravens offense was third in the league coming into the game on third down conversions but went 1 for 10 during this game.  All hope was not lost though when Ray Rice finally got into the endzone on a 1 yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.  The momentum looked like it was finally turning in the Ravens direction.  Ed Reed stripped a pass from Chad OchoCinco which later set up a field goal attempt.  Steve Hauschka however hooked the 38 yard field goal try to kill the rally and the Bengals were able to hold onto their lead,  sacking Flacco twice in the Ravens’ last possession to seal the game for the Bengals.

The Ravens fell to 4 and 4 on the season and will face the lackluster Cleveland Browns on the road next week on Monday Night Football. We can hope!
