Ravens made a specific kind of history last night

Monday night’s thrashing of the Rams by the Ravens was, in isolation, very impressive. Coupled with Baltimore’s game immediately preceding Monday night, it was historic.

Via ESPN Stats and Information, the Ravens’ 41-7 win over the Texans coupled with the 45-6 victory over the Rams makes Baltimore the first team in league history to beat winning teams in back-to-back games by 34 or more points.

The Ravens have had multiple dominant performances this year, but their toughest test yet comes on Sunday, when the 10-1 49ers come to town. If the Ravens can do the San Francisco what they did to Houston and L.A., it may be time to start thinking about the design of the team’s third Super Bowl rings.

  1. Ravens are the real deal, How do you defend against that offense? Plus that Defense. The 49ers game will probably be the first match up of this years Super Bowl. Yeah I know The league wants a Match up of SB 1 Packers and Chiefs, but that isn’t happening.

  2. Doesn’t matter. Time to beat the 49ers. All of these records being broken and set by the Ravens will feel like a bitter consolation prize if we don’t ensure that we get a bye.

  3. The Ravens defense will give lil Jimmy fits and he’ll throw some picks. The offense will be more challenged than they were the past couple of weeks but still score to win 27-10. Ravens have too many weapons on offense and the D is on the rise to that and looking like that ole Nasty Ravens D.

  4. “Yeah I know The league wants a Match up of SB 1 Packers and Chiefs”

    No…..the commish and the league are hell bent on getting Brady another ring, and they’re going to do everything in their power to make sure it happens.

  5. In the salary cap era, the only team like this that actually won the super bowl is the ’99 Rams. Plenty have flamed out. The real season is just getting started.

    Do you really think Belichick showed his full hand a few weeks ago?

    The same Commissioner who ginned up Framegate wants Brady to get another Super Bowl ring? That’s tinfoil-hat talk.

    For all of you who don’t understand Patriots fandom-speak, let me translate for you what this means:

    “We let you win. We didn’t want to show you our best because we’re so great that we can afford to tank games in the regular season. Even though we have no idea if we’re even going to play you in the postseason, we prefer to sandbag. That is why your team won. You didn’t beat us. We let you win.”

    No, he means the same Commissioner that gave Belicheat and Kraft light lovetaps on the hand after catching them filming opppsing teams play calls, destroyed their tapes of opposing teams practices for them and only ever so gently slapped Tom Brady on the hand once Brady backed him into a corner afeter getting busted having footballs deflated for him by the ball boy. The same Commissioner who has clearly sent out an edict that The Patriots are to never be called for holding, P.I. or pushing off and an edict to flag anyone who comes within 5 yards of the Boston Queen for unnecessary roughness. The same Commissioner that overlooked Bob Kraft gettting caught buying up sex slaves on the black market. That Commissioner.

    Actually yes. Everything he knew to try. It’s so obvious that you have never played any football in your life, and if you have, please tell me the school so I can make sure my son doesn’t go there. Go watch the film. Belichick tried heavy packages, 6 DBs, Zone, Man Cover 1, Man Cover 0, All out blitzes, Spies…..NOTHING WORKED. Believe it or not, the great genius coach didn’t know what to do to stop Lamar. But it’s ok, all coaches are stumped right now because they’ve never seen anything like Lamar and this offense. In the history of the NFL, there’s never been a QB that’s the fastest player on the field, AND has the offense designed to take advantage of that with designed runs. In Michael Vick’s prime he was the fastest but he was operating in a traditional offense where all his runs came off passing plays. Unless Lamar gets hurt, like it or not, he’s going to give the Patriots D problems. This myth that Belichick “holds back” scheme for a later date is just false. Is he the best and adjusting and figuring out schemes to take away what you do best? Absolutely. But please stop with the fiction. If he holds back, explain to me how the Ravens were able to barely beat him during the 2012 regular season, and then beat him by 2 touchdowns in the AFCC game later that season.

  12. Bring it Ravens you beat a Rams team that has one pass rusher on defense, and quite frankly has looked slow and out of rhythm on offense all season. SF has 5 elite pass rushers and the best secondary in the league. Your double teams aren’t going to work and Lamar is finally going to see what real pressure looks like. This game will be close but the Ravens won’t out physical this 49er defensive front and George Kittle is going to make the difference in the Game.

  13. If the 9ers win, they can think about their sixth Super Bowl ring. Actually they are thinking about that ring right now.

    Of course not. The Pats were working on only the second undefeated season in NFL history. Who wants that?

  15. The Ravens are on an absolute tear right now. No one has an answer for this offense. The 49ers are coming into our house. Our fans will be frothing at the mouth. I honestly think this Ravens team can’t be beat.

    I like your confidence, but the double team scheme you are referring too isn’t our only tactic. We used it against the Rams and they had no answer.
    Force us into a passing game, we’ll pass. Force us into a running game and we’ll run. This forces teams to have to play us 11 on 11. Your pass rush is depleted. And I also disagree with you on the secondary. Smith, Thomas and Peters are the best secondary, not the 49ers.
    Should be a great game but the Ravens will pull away and win by 10+. No one can stop us.

  17. I hope the Refs are ready on Sunday. I think the only tactic that will work for you is a lot of holding. Stats don’t lie and the 49ers are on a tear of their own. DJ Jones is going to give the Ravens fits and with Ford coming back Armstead and Bosa will be fresher later in the game. Garappolo has Kittle back and the Ravens won’t be getting off the field on 3rd down line their used too. I think the over confident Ravens lose by a field goal.
