Two straight losses have dropped the Ravens to a mediocre, and all-too-familiar, 4-4. They know that if they don't right their ship Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a promising year could slip away.
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.
As the Ravens left their third preseason game with a 20-19 win, their 11th straight preseason victory, they could only hope that the mistakes and misfortune of a less-than-ideal opening 30 minutes would not linger long.
Although the Ravens have given up an NFL-worst 11 sacks in the preseason, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said the offensive line performed better in Thursday’s win against the Los Angeles Rams.
After C.J. Mosley expressed his desire to see the defense open strongly against the Los Angeles Rams Thursday night, the Ravens' first team gave up zero points, one first down and 5 yards of offense in the first quarter.
