Three things we learned in the Ravens’ 27-14 victory over the Broncos The Baltimore Ravens are back in the win column as they defeated the Denver Broncos 27-14 in week three. Although it may be too earlier to call any game at this stage a must-win Stitched Mark Andrews Jersey , they picked up a much-needed victory as they prepare for a three-game stretch on the road. After their disastrous performance on Thursday night football against the Bengals ten days earlier, what did we learn from the Ravens in week three?1. The offensive line is still an issue, but give them credit for taking Von Miller out of the gameLeading up to week three, most of the conversations at ‘The Castle’ were centered around Von Miller, Denver’s defensive leader. The Ravens’ offense, particularly their offensive line, knew in order to beat the Broncos, they needed to shut down Miller.“[Von Miller] the straw that stirs the drink, no doubt – one of the very best in the league at what he does. We will have to have him accounted for at all times, on every play. If we don’t do that, he’ll wreck the game. That’s job [No.] 1 on offense – that’s where it starts,” head coach John Harbaugh stated earlier in the week. It would be hard to argue that Marty Mornhinweg and the rest of the offensive staff did not scheme up a successful game plan to neutralize Miller as he finished the game with two total tackles and two penalties. He had a two-game sack streak heading into this matchup, but it was snapped on Sunday. “That was the biggest thing, just not letting him be a factor Baby Mark Andrews Jersey , and we had a plan for that, obviously, but at the end of the day, it’s really just up to those guys up front,” quarterback Joe Flacco said after the game. Mornhinweg’s offensive utilized several different concepts to virtually take Miller out of the game. On several occasions, they moved the pocket, which bought Joe Flacco more time to survey the field. In addition, Baltimore relied on their tight ends for chip blocks, which paid dividends. 2. Don Martindale, not the loss of C.J. Mosley, was the issue in week 2Against the Cincinnati Bengals, Baltimore’s defense was a nightmare in the first half following C.J. Mosley’s injury. They allowed four consecutive touchdown drives. The defense looked unorganized, and often, confused. Patrick Onwuasor took over the play-calling duties in the first half Best Mark Andrews Jersey , and it was clear that the defense was not prepared for that. There were several busted coverages, poor scheme, and a questionable game plan. After the Bengals’ fourth consecutive touchdown drive, Baltimore’s defense tightened up. They only allowed 134 yards and six points for the rest of the game. It appears that the loss of Mosley was not as significant as many wereforecasting, while the real issue may have been lack of preparation bythe defense, which is entirely on Martindale. With ten days to prepare for the Broncos, and the Ravens likely knew Mosley would be inactive considering he only practiced once all week (limited participant), Martindale’s unit looked more organized. With Eric Weddle relaying the signals, the team was able to return to their dominant week one form. Baltimore held the Broncos scoreless for three quarters, and one of their touchdown drives started inside the Ravens’ six-yard line. They forced one turnover and only recorded three sacks, but the pass-rush was alive and well.Mosley is playing under the final year of his rookie contract, and Baltimore will have a difficult to decision to make in the offseason. However, with the emergence of Kenny Young, would it be wise for the Ravens to give Mosley such a lucrative contract? If the defense continues to perform well without Mosley Adult Mark Andrews Jersey , their decision may not be so difficult.3. Joe Flacco is the biggest factor in whether or not the Ravens make the playoffsThis is not necessarily a new takeaway or one that should be much of a surprise. However, weeks two and three showcased the difference between how the Ravens perform when Flacco is ‘hot’ and when he is ‘cold.’ In week two, the offensive line was far from satisfactory, but Flacco still had plenty of opportunities to lead Baltimore to a come from behind victory. However, his inaccuracy issues reared its ugly head, and the Ravens were defeated. Flacco’s decision-making was head-scratching. Flashing forward to week three, it was seemingly a different quarterback. Despite being pressured on multiple occasions, Flacco was able to guide the offense to 27 points. His stats may not be ‘sexy’ as he only had 277 yards and one touchdown, but it was his sharp decision-making that should have stolen the show. The Ravens now have the weapons around Flacco to have an above-average offense, and it is on him to deliver. Can he force Baltimore to have to make a tough decision this offseason? Four weeks from today, the 2019 NFL Draft will be wrapping up.If it was up to Ravens coach John Harbaugh, none of us would have to wait that long.Via Ben Volin of the , Harbaugh said if he could change anything about the pre-draft process, he would make it significantly shorter.“I think the draft should be earlier Miles Boykin Baltimore Ravens Jersey , sooner,” Harbaugh said. “We don’t need to be so involved where we need three months to watch the players ourselves. Let’s draft these guys, let’s get them to us.“And let’s be honest, they’re all coming. Nobody’s taking their last semester of school. You want to get in the real world here? Let’s understand that that’s how it works. Because they end up graduating a high percentage of the time we get them, anyway, because we make sure they do. Let’s help them, but let’s not have them worried about running 40 times. Let’s get them working on football so they can contribute their first couple of years.”(At least we’re no longer pretending that drafted players from schools on the quarter system are still going to class so they can’t attend OTAs.)Coaches have been complaining about the amount of time they get with players in the offseasons, and if more people saw it Harbaugh’s way, the rookie class would at least be on the same schedule as their veteran teammates. Teams with new head coaches can begin their offseason programs Monday, the rest can start April 15. That means some of the draft picks will be a month behind getting ready for the job, so we can spend another month wondering where they’ll punch the clock.
