All-in-all this game was awful in just about every facet. It’s hard to be optimistic after such an embarrassing loss, especially with the myriad of injuries the Ravens have accrued in the last two weeks. The Houston Texans went into this game following an embarrassing defeat last week to the Green Bay Packers looking to avenge their season and hang their first ever loss on the Baltimore Ravens, and they did just that.
After an encouraging first five minutes or so, in which the Ravens looked to have solid momentum both offensively and defensively, the game just went out of control from there. Getting blown away both offensively and defensively, it is safe to say that the Ravens were dismantled and demoralized all the same. I think the turning point of this game was when Joe Flacco threw his first interception (for a touchdown, no less) of the game. From that point forward Ravens fans just had a sense of “Oh boy, this is going to be a long day” to them.
There really isn’t much else to say at this point as we all just witnessed possibly the worst performance in Ravens’ history. But on the bright-side of things, the Baltimore Ravens head into their Bye Week with an AFC second-best record of 5-2, which ain’t too bad. Also, another positive to take from this game, Terrell Suggs is back on the field and had a very encouraging performance. And another interesting statistic to note, the Baltimore Ravens have not lost two games in a row since John Harbaugh became the Head Coach in 2008, so look for the Ravens to rebound in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns after the Bye Week.
It is never fun to watch a game like this, but we need to remind ourselves how many other teams would kill to be 5-2 heading into the Bye Week with a solid hold of 2nd place in their conference. I assure you when you wake up in the morning the Sun will still be shining and the world will still be here, so keep your head up Ravens’ fans and try to enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Goodnight everyone, I hope you all have a splendid afternoon. GO RAVENS!!!
