Isn't it amazing how much better our "two shutdown corners" play when the people up front get a little pressure. Funny how that works.
So glad I was wrong about this game. I predicted the Ravens would win handily. I just didn't think we would give Flacco fits after what I saw last week.
It certainly helps that Flacco couldn't hit wide open guys after he was hearing footsteps. But I think any good defense in the league gets pressure with the front 7 that makes it easier for the corners. With all the NFL rules, the offense has a distinct advantage. Disrupting the timing is really the only way that you can level the playing field.
It's so good to see a defense scare the ******* out of a QB so much that his OC has to make every dropback a 3 step drop.
