I have just one question, who is the Ravens best running back? Has our D not been watching Ray Rice this year, he should have had a shadow on him the whole game. Him catching passes without someone on his back is inexcusable!!!!!

I don't understand it, were such a physical team but we have a big problem with tackling sometimes. We give up big 3rd down plays sometimes because of poor tackling.

They just gotta step it up everywhere the rest of the season

i think it's lack of effort and fundamentals. IMO, the defense looks confused at what they are trying to do at times.
