Ravens vs. Titans final: Zero Winners

An incredible season ends with a heart-breaking loss. The one-seed Baltimore Ravens suffer a 28-12 loss at home at the hands of Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry and the Tennessee Titans.

John Harbaugh — This team came out flat-footed and that’s on the head coach, plain and simple.

Greg Roman — The playcalling in this game did not resemble anything of what we saw during the 12-game winning streak. They didn’t run the ball and Dean Pees straight-up got the better of Roman. At the end of the third quarter, Gus Edwards had only three carries. Why, in a game where you need early success are you not utilizing the big heavy tailback who is healthy and hungry?

Don Martindale — Couldn’t figure out the Titans offense and couldn’t adjust. Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith completely out-coached Martindale.

Total defense — At no point could this team stop Derrick Henry or Ryan Tannehill. They couldn’t win the turnover battle. They didn’t stop the first downs or the bleeding. They couldn’t beat their matchups.

Drops — Six drops tonight and multiple occurring on crucial downs. The rust was real and not playing a football game in nearly three weeks comes back to bite the hands team.

Offensive line — Multiple sacks and a lack of running lanes turns any team from multi-faceted into zero-dimensional. Can’t run or pass when the blocking doesn’t hold up.

Special Teams — Multiple penalties on returns which only hurt the Ravens offense. This team made it as difficult as possible to be successful.
