Yeah they limited RGIII and then let Cousins torch them. This one is on the defense. Giving up an 8 pt lead with around a minute to go is crap.

The TD by Cousins was man coverage... I couldn't see who was covering Garcon, but the Rookie put an all pro pump fake that took the DB off of Garcon... That's how he (Garcon) was wide open!!! Pitifull...

When Cousins came in, Pees should have dialed up the blitz, but instead he went into the prevent defense. I still can't wrap my head around that.

It doesn't matter if we limit a team to only 100 yards on the day, a loss is a loss. Now we're really going to be feeling this when we board a flight to New England or Houston in the playoffs.

It seems like we bit on a pump fake on that final TD pass, but there was no receiver in the vicinity. That fake gave them exra foot needed for Garcon to come down with that pass. Regardless of the circumstances, we should have been able to prevent that score.

we knew the defense would give up points. the offense should have shredded that crappy defense of the skins and put up 35 to 40 plus points. why we didnt blitz cousins is mind boggling.

We needed Offensive play calling to step up and control the game. Didnt happen, play calling was suspect in crunch time Cam failed uscagain.

Pees did show that he could make adjustments on the fly which is good but the defense should start like that and not just finish

So, the Ravens have been done in by Charlie Batch, a one legged RGIII and Kirk Cousins. Baltimore needs to learn how to finish and not just games, but each play. I loved Johnson's quote after the first Steelers' game. It was like every play determined the outcome of the game. I hope we learned our lesson. The defense was without JJ and Redding (free agent departures), Sizzle, Ray, Ellerbe, Webb, Jimmy Smith (with injuries) and McClain left the game with an injury. The "other guys" did what they were expected to do. They kept us in the game, got sacks and created turnovers. Moreover, after each turnover, they only surrendered two field goals.
The offense let us down again. And that's why Cam is no longer with us. It's not that the defense was not enough, the offense faliled to finish.
