Ravens jump out to 14-0 lead in first quarter

Members of the Giants talked a lot about how the team waits to flip the switch until the last possible second this week.

That moment is drawing closer by the second. The Giants trail the Ravens 14-0 with 4:24 left in the first quarter of a game they need to win to remain in control of their playoff destiny. The defense was gashed by 44 rushing yards en route to a six-yard Torrey Smith touchdown catch to open the scoring and then cornerback Corey Webster found himself in bad position on a 43-yard catch by Smith that put the Ravens on the Giants’ one a short time later. Joe Flacco scored on a quarterback sneak to extend the Baltimore lead.

The Giants have gained two yards on their first two possessions, both of which were three-and-outs. Eli Manning as missed on all three of his passes thus far as the Giants seem to be late arriving for their Week 16 date.

    How was that TD by Jones not a touchdown?!

    Ravens got cheated; how do you reverse a called TD with that evidence? No second act? What is that supposed to mean? This league is getting weirder by the day.

    These officials are horrible…

    Yeah it was a fumble but the Ravens fumbled it right back. The Giants could have had the ball back with a fresh set of downs. A good blown call for the Ravens.

    This is the sort of game that makes Flacco such an enigma. He looks sharp today.

    I guess catching the ball then turning and stretching it across the goal line is not a TD…the rules continue to get more and more confusing…ah well nice half Ravens!

    Down 17 at the half, even with Mara calling the game from his skybox! Hahahaha!! But I do worry about which Redskin Baby John will suspend this week. Hail!

    Eli is not elite by a long shot, these so called experts need to stop throwing that word around

    Seriously, when will the NFL admit that the vast majority of the officials are enormously incompetent? Is there any accountability at all? If I were that bad at my job I’m sure I wouldn’t have it for long.

    Gmen never do well the year after a SB win. Time to share the wealth.

    Go Ravens! Giants need to loose.

  13. flash1283 says: Dec 23, 2012 6:15 PM

    Again, is there a more inconsistent “elite” QB than Eli Manning?

    Elite, what a joke!!

  14. nicepak381 says: Dec 23, 2012 6:22 PM

    These Refs are all for the Giants, it’s ridiculous.

  15. nicepak381 says: Dec 23, 2012 6:30 PM

    Ravens are not going to be denied today, regardless of the bad calls against them. They are playing great.

  16. ravenator says: Dec 23, 2012 6:38 PM

    Refs are a joke. Go ahead take a raven td away they’ll still win
