Ravens report card week 2: the offense

Quarterback– Joe Flacco looked sharp at times but other times he looked like he was forcing throws.  Flacco’s final numbers were not pretty, he only completed 22-42 passes.  His final quarterback rating was 66.8.  Flacco turned the ball over twice, one on a bad interception that he should not have thrown.  Grade C-

Running Backs– Ray Rice ran for 99 yards and probably should have carried the ball more.  Most of Rice’s yards came from a huge 43-yard carry.  Rice was also a presence in the passing game, compiling six receptions for 53 yards.  Vonta Leach scored a touchdown and blocked well.  Grade B

Receivers– The receivers were blanked most of the game.  The wide receivers totaled six receptions and one touchdown.  Tight end Dennis Pitta was Flacco’s go-to man, Pitta had eight receptions for 65 yards.  The receivers looked like they lacked separation, give credit to the Eagles defensive backs.  Tandon Doss had his first career reception.  Grade C

Offensive line– The offensive line opened up some huge wholes in the run game and only allowed two sacks but could have preformed better.  Flacco rushed a lot of throws because he was under pressure and got hit hard.  The first offensive play of the game for the Ravens Michael Oher got beat and it led to a Joe Flacco fumble.  Grade C+

Overall– The offense had way too many three and outs.  It looked like they went away from the no huddle offense for a while and slowed the game down.  The play calling was a little off.  Grade C
