The last two weeks, the Ravens offense has been anemic. One of the biggest reasons why was the inability and unwillingness to throw the ball down the field. But in Week 5, it didn’t take long for the Ravens to change that.

Joe Flacco received the snap, and handed the ball off to Vince Mayle. Maybe beat the Raiders defense to the outside, and stretched the ball out towards the corner. The ball broke the plane for a Ravens touchdown.

The touchdown was set up by a five play, 75 yard drive. The drive started with this play:

Joe Flacco hooked up with Mike Wallace on this deep pass to start the game off with a bang for the Ravens offense. The 52 yard catch was the Ravens longest offensive play this season.

After the score, the Ravens took a 7-0 lead over the Raiders early in the first quarter.
