More of the same for Ravens: Defense dominates, offense struggles in 13-9 win over Bills

A two-drive sequence in the first quarter of the Ravens’ game against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night at M&T Bank Stadium provided a nice synopsis of the team’s performance in the preseason and might foreshadow what’s to come when the games truly matter.

On the Bills’ second drive, Ravens second-year pass rusher Matthew Judon slammed Tyrod Taylor to the ground, forcing a punt and knocking Buffalo’s starting quarterback from the game with a concussion. The Ravens took over on the Bills’ side of the field, but were forced to settle for a 40-yard field goal by Justin Tucker after quarterback Ryan Mallett settled for a 6-yard check-down pass on third-and-10.
