Let's not act like the Ravens are playing awful D here. They've shut down Turner, and Matt's just having a great game aside from that Roddy White TD miss.
They are though, I dare say if the Falcons tried to run they would. Ravens are genuinely in the prevent like they have a lead or something. They are rushing 3 and it isn't even a rush, it's more 3 guys just holding space, dropping 8 into coverage and still can't stop completion after completion.
Hey Ryan is playing great and picking them apart, but if you are dropping 8 into deep coverage there just can't be that much space for receivers to be consistently standing on their own.
That was a horrific throw by Flacco, what was he trying to achieve there? That throw was so bad that the pick was basically a best case, if he is a half yard worse on that throw it was pick 6, nothing he could do was making that catchable for his man...
Oh and cool stat... Abraham is 3rd on the active Sack Leaders list. Not bad for a guy who flatout never gets mentioned when people talk about the best DEs in the league.
He had is run in New York where he was jacked up to the ceiling hyped on some bad Jets teams, then has lived in obscurity. In ten years, when you have to list off the best pass rushers of this decade and you mention his name all of the people new to the game won't know who he is(ala Ricky Jackson) but he's one of the best. Damn better against the run than he's given credit for too.
