Brown is one of the NFL's most unstoppable forces, but his play, end-zone dancing and occasional sideline tirades aren't the only things fans notice when they watch Pittsburgh's prolific wideout. Their top receiver is Ben Watson, a 36-year-old tight end who is coming off an Achilles injury.
After Pittsburgh's Chris Boswell missed a 44-yard field goal, Alex Collins promptly ran for 50 yards to set up a 16-yard touchdown pass from Flacco to Mike Wallace. "You can kick over trash cans if you want, but it's not going to make you better". The Jaguars have allowed just 147 passing yards per game, which means they could stack defenders at the line of scrimmage to stop Bell and dare Roethlisberger to pass.
Baltimore faces another tough game next week in Oakland. That was a total of $15.75 million in guaranteed money, which is dwarfed by the $56.75 million given to the defense. Baltimore's stout defense won't exactly be welcoming.
As for where the Ravens go from here, Flacco said he assumed the demonstrations would end, though noted the team hasn't talked about it. He has yet to play a full 16-game schedule, the byproduct of a 6-foot-1, 237-pound frame that Shazier admits isn't necessarily built to play a position created to collide with considerably larger players on almost every snap.
For the first time since 2008, he has opened a season with four consecutive games without a 300-yard performance.
"He's getting hit too much".
This includes the AFC South rivalry match between the Tennessee Titans and the Houston Texans, the NFC North matchup between the Detroit Lions and the Minnesota Vikings, as well as a couple of AFC North matchups. "Something has to get better there". Also, Foster, who was out with a thumb injury was a full participant on Friday and is sure of play on Sunday.
James Hurst, who began training camp at right tackle, has played left guard after the team signed free agent Austin Howard to start in the spot. The victor will have sole possession of first place in the division with both the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals both lagging with 0-3 records.
"It's always frustrating when you can't score points". The next week, he played 11 and, on Sunday, he played 23. It's one of those ones that we expected him to be back by now, but it's just slow-healing, I guess.
"If they kneel during the anthem, I'm done". "Just to be able to help Mike get his first pick and for the defense to have three turnovers and us to close the game out, that's all that matters to me". "We felt confident about it". It's how do we put it together in a way each week that gives our guys a chance to execute the best? "We've got to get it going". I don't plan on nobody seeing that type of defense and that type of Ravens team anymore this season. The defense is ranked fourth in the NFL.
Parting ways with an offensive coordinator has happened before in Baltimore. "Because it gets in his head and it just messes with all of us a little bit", Roethlisberger said. "You just have to improve".
