    After disappointing season, Ravens must gauge return on their priciest investments

    Film Study: Looking back at the Ravens' loss to the Patriots
    Patriots 41, Ravens 7 STRATEGY: Joe Flacco's sprained left knee meant the Ravens were even more reliant than usual on the shotgun formation rather than have him drop back in the pocket. They ran the shotgun 67 of 74 snaps, trying in vain to increase the...
