This was one of
's worst days as a pro. His passes in the flat had no zip, and he even had trouble completing swing passes. He held onto the ball too long at times, and never had any timing with his receivers. Flacco, who threw two interceptions, finished with a quarterback rating of 51.2.
had three sacks, but they put constant pressure on Flacco. Right tackle
returned to old form, and had two false start penalties. Left tackle
was slow off the ball. Like Flacco, the offensive line had no continuity. This looked like a group that had not practiced for a long period of time.
finished with 43 yards on 13 carries, and appeared to be close to breaking a long one. Rice did a nice job of picking up blitzes in the pass rush. Backup running back
played, but wasn't a factor. Rice led the
in receiving with five catches for 53 yards.
finished with three catches for 46 yards. He worked the middle of the field well. But the Ravens didn't get the rest of the receivers into the game plan until late.
had two catches for 45 yards, but Flacco overthrew him on one bomb. Tight end
rebounded after a slow start. The Ravens need to find a tight end that can consistently run block.
had only two tackles, but gave little ground while being double teamed most of the game. In the first half, fellow defensive tackle
was the best player on the field and finished with six tackles. He also knocked down two passes. Defensive end
doesn't get a lot of credit, but he always turns in a strong effort. As a group, the Ravens need more of a pass rush.
had a slow start, but was dominant in the second half. Outside linebacker
played well despite being constantly double teamed. Strongside linebacker Jarret Johson also had a strong game, but it's time for the Ravens to replace

The Ravens should just burn the tape of this game.

The Ravens weren't ready to play this game, and some of that has to fall on the coach. They wasted a timeout in the second quarter when they didn't need to, and they showed no sense of urgency in the fourth quarter after falling behind. When the Ravens should have stepped up the tempo and possibly went to a no-huddle, they acted as if they were up by 10 instead of down by 10. Few things in the offensive and defensive game plans seemed to succeed against the Titans. Ravens also should have gone for it instead of kicking a field goal on fourth down late in game.
