With the Baltimore Ravens out of the playoffs for sure now, the coaches will use these final three games to evaluate their players and determine if anyone should get additional playing time or even come back in 2016. The one thing you don't want to do is put the ball on the turf. The thing you don't want to do even more is have that mistake get run back for a touchdown.
Ravens rookie rusher Javorius Allen sadly had exactly that happen. Kansas City Chiefs Tyvon Branch would grab it from the ground and race off to another touchdown with Ravens in tow.
With both veteran running backs Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro out on injured reserve, now is not the time to give your opponent points. Famously, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has his "doghouse" and has seen a fair share of players find their way into it with great difficulty getting out.
Trust me Buck, Harbaugh's doghouse is a tough place to get out of. #Ravens— Brian Bower (@sportguyRSR) December 20, 2015
Magee now in at RB for the Ravens as they begin at the BAL14. Allen on sideline, arms folded, clearly in doghouse #RavensTalk— Bo Smolka (@bsmolka) December 20, 2015
The Ravens have since only put out Terrence Magee and Terrance West out on the field instead. If they are able to do well, it could be the last we see of Buck Allen for the game.
