Why is everyone suddenly so down on this team? Yeah, it would've been nice to have blown out Kansas City and to have Joe Flacco pass for 300+ yards and for the defense to get some touchdowns as well. But this is the NFL. It's for pros. There's a reason why players get paid a lot of money. It's because they're good at what they do.
Remember that saying 'Any Given Sunday'? That was something that was constantly in fans' minds last year. We lost to Jacksonville... JACKSONVILLE. We lost to Seattle and the Titans.
We almost lost to Kansas City. But we didn't. No, we actually won that game. But for someone who didn't watch the game, they'd think we lost since all of you people are so sad and upset about the way we played. So what? Who cares? We did what we had to do and I'm proud of the Ravens for this win. We didn't lose to a team who were worse than us, we battled them and we won. Our defense only allowed Jamal Charles to run for 12 yards in the second half. That's after allowing him 125 in the 1st half. Great adjustments by Dean and our D. In the second half, our offense started to produce and without Joe's 16-yard run and Ray Rice's extra effort to get the 1st down at the 2:00 mark, we would've lost that game.
It's football, guys. Not every game is going to be a shootout and not every game is going to be easy. We won, that's all that matters. Next up are the Dallas Cowboys. Lets whoop their asses.
