      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Turnovers

One of the things that stood out to me over the last 2 close road wins was the fact that we did not have a giveaway in either one. We are also near the top of the league in overall turnover margin as well. We didn't have any takeaways in the SD game but the ones we got in the Steeler game were huge.

Our 21 takeaways led the AFC entering the Chargers game and we are still +12 in turnover differential. Our team is one of the best at converting redzone opportunities into TDs and THE BEST at limiting the same to our opponents. Add in the great special teams play and winning the field position battles more often than not and its a formula for success, regardless of the opinions of the talking heads, opposing fans, and some within this fanbase have of our team.

difference between winning ugly and losing this year in my opinion.

I was surprised as i thought we would come away with at least 2 from Rivers but he had the pleasure of playing the game leading us so he did not try to force any balls in.

Rivers was extra specially careful you could see it. And he threw like 6 passes away which is unusual for him. He usually has the gunslinger make any throw mentality. I'm just happy we came away with a win like that Ray Rice is simply not human. And I have my doubts about whether Boldin is either! Machines!

It amazes me that we are doing so well in the turnover department when we lacked a pass rush (prior to suggs' return), we don't have our shutdown corner (webb) and Ed Reed is a shadow of his old self.
