Headset issues plague Ravens on final drive...

With the Ravens losing a close game last night to the Arizona Cardinals, every little thing matters. The Ravens experienced trouble with their headsets on the final drive, a drive which culminated in a Flacco interception with about 10 seconds left in the game. The Ravens are the third team to have this issue recently, with the Steelers complaining about headset issues in week 1 against the Patriots, and the Jags and Bills having some issues in London this week.

Maybe there should be some rule in place when a visiting team experiences headset issues, because it really can create a competitive advantage for the home team in situations like this.

Of course, some found some humor in the situation:

Would Joe Flacco calling the plays be better at it than Trestman? Coming off one of his better games to date, who knows what the correct answer is. But the Ravens had enough opportunities to come away with a win, and they didn't. No amount of excuses changes that!
