Ravens report card versus Broncos: The Offense

Quarterback: Joe Flacco was one of the only players that played well in this game and his stats did not show it. Flacco put balls on the money the entire game and his receivers dropped them way too many times. Flacco was also under a lot of pressure throughout the game. A 69.4 qb rating is not pretty but that’s what happens when your team drops the ball. Flacco used all his receivers, hitting eight different guys. Grade B

Running backs: The Ravens only managed 58 total rushing yards, that is simply not enough the average was 2.8 yards per carry between Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce. They did not have much room to go and were a little effective in the passing game but still a bad game. Grade C

Receivers: This group had a few bright spots like Marlon Brown but overall was just bad. Even Dallas Clark dropped a few balls, one was excusable because he got hammered but still bad. Ed Dickson had the worst night, he was targeted five times and only came up with one reception. Dickson’s drops came on key downs and cost the Ravens some drives. Torrey Smith had a fine game but was being covered well. Need more from this group. Grade C

Offensive Line:
On some plays Flacco did not have a chance. They lost Michael Oher early in the game and it went downhill after that. Allowing four sacks and eight quarterback hits is not good. They also failed to open up any wholes for the run game at all. Grade D

Overall: Flacco and Brown were two of the Ravens bright spots from this game. They scored 27 points so this was not the worst unit on the field. Grade B
