Let’s meet the Baltimore Ravens

By Marc A. Greenberg

In anticipation of Sunday Night’s New York Jets visit to Baltimore, let’s meet the Ravens:


Joe Flacco –  59-109, 810 yards, 7 TDs, 2 INTs, 3 Fumbles.

In what was once a run first team (sounds like the New York Jets), the Baltimore Ravens changed it up last week against the Rams, having Flacco throw 48 times, including 3 TDs to Rookie Torrey Smith in the first quarter.  Watch out, Antonio Cromartie.   Flacco finished 27 for 48 for a career high 389 yards and the three TDs.

Here’s a clip of Torrey Smith’s 3 TDs.  Notice his speed on these catches.   It’s going to be a real test for Cromartie.

Running Back

Ray Rice – 41 carries, 231 yards, 1 TD

– 14 catches, 178 yards, 2 TDs

Wide Receivers

Anquan Boldin – 14 catches, 194 yards, 1 TD.

Torrey Smith – 5 catches, 152 yards, 3 TDs

Ed Dickson – 12 catches, 135 yards, 1 TD


Nothing else needs to be said about the Ravens defense that this:

Ray Lewis, LB

Terrell Suggs, LB

Haloti Ngata, DT

Ed Reed, CB

Four potential hall of fame defensemen will create havoc for the New York Jets, whose best bet is to air it out again this week and take advantage of a banged-up Baltimore secondary.
