Following last week's offensive explosion against the Redskins, I kind of expected Cam Cameron to come out today with a more run-oriented approach, if only to keep Rex Ryan's defense from teeing off on Joe Flacco.
It didn't work out that way. The Ravens again threw the ball much more than they ran it in the first half. Flacco was 8 for 18 for 120 yards and Troy Smith was 2 for 3 for 22 yards after taking over late in the second quarter. The Ravens ran 21 passing plays and just 12 running plays. Ray Rice got eight of those carries and totaled 29 yards and a touchdown.
The receiver distribution also was quite a bit different. Derrick Mason had three catches for 68 yards and Demetrius Williams and Le'Ron McClain had two each. Last week's leading receiver, Justin Harper, is not on the stat sheet yet.
