Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is the toughest quarterback in the NFL, according to his teammates. But they're also becoming all too familiar for the Ravens who have watched their $120.6 million quarterback take a beating in recent weeks.
The Ravens' recommitment to the running game during Sunday's 26-23 victory over the Miami Dolphins wasn¿t reflected in their 3.3 yards-per-carry average. But other numbers tell the story, starting with their 40 rushing attempts. The Ravens still have plenty of work left to do to get their running game to where it needs to be, but a week after giving up on it altogether, they relied on it to escape from Miami with a win.
Ravens left tackle Bryant McKinnie's pass-blocking breakdowns against the Miami Dolphins were part of a chaotic game for the Ravens' offensive line that eventually overcame miscues and back spasms to left guard Kelechi Osemele in a 26-23 win at Sun Life Stadium.
Facing a 3rd-and-long deep in their territory Sunday, the Ravens curiously decided to throw the ball and the result was an interception that was returned for a touchdown. Head coach John Harbaugh admitted it was a foolish decision.
