I can admit when I’m wrong. I was really wrong on the Rams vs. Ravens game. I was thinking that after the way the Rams played the Giants, it would be a close game. It was far from that. 

The Rams looked like the Rams of old, getting blown out 37-7. The Ravens struck quickly with big plays against the Rams defense. Three TD’s from Flacco to Torrey Smith in the first quarter sealed the fate of the Rams. 

The Rams are not ready to come back from that kind of deficit. The Rams defense gave up 389 yards through the air and 168 yards on the ground. Flacco averaged eight yards per completion and the Ravens averaged 6.5 yards per carry. Game over. 

The Rams only got two sacks on Flacco, and didn’t pick him once. The Rams offense didn’t help the Rams defensive cause. The Rams allowed 5 sacks, had a pick and one fumble that went for a 28 yard touchdown. 

I can’t think of one positive from this game. 

Washington comes to town this week. Hopefully the Rams defense can stuff the run of Hightower and rely on Rex Grossman to try and beat them. If they can get to Grossman we might have a chance. If not, this could be ugly too.
