Purple Reign-Baltimore Ravens Week 4

It has been stated that The Ravens/Steelers games are “rivalry” matches and throwbacks to the more smashmouth brand of heavy hits and close games.

For the most part, new NFL rules have taken many of the “hard hit” elements out of competitive play, along with the uber protection of quarterbacks and receivers. However, these two teams still find a way to rattle the helmets at times.

The Ravens, who tend to experience brain cramps when playing away and in prime time, truly came to play in Week 4 versus their nemesis, The Steelers.

The Ravens 26-14 victory in Pittsburgh moves their record to 3-1 and drops The Steelers to 1-2-1. The Ravens now share 1st Place with The Bengals, also at 3-1.

There are many things to be excited about on the Offensive side, although Crabtree’s catch rate (he drops way too many passes) and mystery on use of Alex Collins, remain eye sores.

Through 4 games, The Ravens rank as follows:Image result for baltimore ravens john brown

5th in Points Per Game at 30.8

4th in Points Against at 65

11th in Yards Per Game at 408

8th in Pass Yards Per Game at 319

23rd in Rushing Yards Per Game at 89 (THIS MUST IMPROVE)

25th in Time of Possession  (ANOTHER RESULT OF RUNNING ISSUES)

Flacco obviously leads in QB stats with 1,252 Yards Passing, 8 TD’s and 2 INT.

Alex Collins leads at RB with 158 Yards, 2 TD’s and 2 Fumbles (costly). His longest run to date is 14 yards!

John Brown has been a nice addition! 338 Yards Receiving and 3 TD’s and exciting to watch.

Snead, Crabtree, Williams, Andrews and Boyle have also seen some action.

Justin Tucker..well, what can you say. A rock at his position making 9/10 FG’s including 3/3 over 50 yards!

Sam Koch steady again averaging nearly 50 yards per Punt.

Week 5 moves us to the Dog Pound in Cleveland.

Although The Browns are 1-2-1 they are completely retooled and fun to watch. Baker Mayfield hopes to live up to the hype and will have to do so against a reborn Ravens Defense.

Go Ravens!
