Members of the Ravens special teams unit can take solace in knowing that their gaffes did not cost the team a victory Sunday against the Denver Broncos, but there is still considerable work to be done.
The Ravens are in the same class as the New England Patriots when it comes to cheating. That’s the general perception now after the NFL fined the team $200,000 on Wednesday for a violation of the Coach-To-Player Communications policy.
The Ravens opened their first day of practice this week without three starters in running back Alex Collins (illness), middle linebacker C.J. Mosley (bone bruise in left knee) and nose tackle Michael Pierce (foot).
The NFL Network gave it everything any broadcaster could: a high-energy pregame show, a strong telecast with a veteran team in the booth and two solid sideline reporters, plus enough cameras to capture every play that mattered.
