The Ravens might have been victims of their own success. In their previous four games, they blew out the New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals, Houston Texans and Rams. By building big leads, the Ravens forced opposing teams to pass, which allowed the Ravens to switch out of their base defense. Inside linebackers Josh Bynes, Patrick Onwuasor and L.J. Fort were replaced by sub packages that included five or six defensive backs.
