Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the decision to deactivate the two defensive starters was not easy, but he still considers them day-to-day for this week leading to Sunday night’s game at the Pittsburgh Steelers.
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 Broncos gave up 296 points during the regular season and 44 points during their three postseason games. That's an average of 17.9 points per game, which is pretty good until you compare it the two teams during the 16-game era that are generally left standing during any debate about the best defensive units — the 1985 Chicago Bears and the 2000 Ravens.
There's seemingly no surefire recipe for success in building an NFL secondary, but one thing could become abundantly clear when the Ravens face the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals have found a formula that works for them, while the Ravens haven't.
The Bel Air Bobcats scored 28 unanswered second half points Friday night to overcome an upset bid by host Havre de Grace in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Chesapeake Division football game.
