The weakest part of the Ravens' team this season has been punt returns. The Ravens rank last in the NFL, averaging 6 yards per punt return.
How bad has this been for the Ravens? Against Atlanta, which has the second-worst punt coverage team in the league (opponents have been averaging 15.8 yards per punt return), the Ravens managed one return for 9 yards (Ed Reed) and another one for 7 yards (Lardarius Webb). Webb ended his return with a fumble.
The Ravens have tried four players on punt returns -- Webb, Reed, Tom Zbikowski and Chris Carr -- and none have broken one longer than 20 yards. They could be desperate enough to try Derrick Mason back there.
