No offensive touchdowns and 173 yards was not the season debut Joe Flacco and the Ravens were hoping for.

The loss of elite edge rusher Terrell Suggs is a major blow to the defense, but there are bigger concerns on the offensive end.

Narrow loss in Denver + season-ending injury for Terrell Suggs = terrible Week 1 for Ravens fans.

Joe Flacco's line was anything but elite: 18-of-32, 117 yards and two picks.

Terrell Suggs' season-ending injury is a problem. So too is Joe Flacco throwing for 117 yards in the opener.

They lost to the Broncos, but the real hit was losing Terrell Suggs for the season with a torn Achilles tendon.
