Well, they can’t blame Cam Cameron for that one.

The Ravens’ first possession with new offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell at the switches was less than a smash hit. Caldwell replaced the fired Cameron this week, but hasn’t had much of a chance to make an impression.

On his third play as a play-caller at the NFL level, Caldwell dialed up a safe little sneak for quarterback Joe Flacco on third-and-1. But Flacco made it unsafe by fumbling, giving the ball back to the Broncos at midfield. It was Flacco’s third lost fumble in the last three games.

On a day when they’re playing without four of their top five tacklers, it’s the kind of mistake the Ravens can’t make.

But Flacco just made it.
