Mayfield is 3rd in the NFL in passer rating when pressured.

I’m nervous.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Wasn't someone saying we weren't going to get a sack, let alone two against Rivers? And there was no chance he was going to throw an interception? 

 

If Humphrey, Tavon, Smith and Carr continue to play at this level, we can blitz our hearts out if we really wanted. 

 

Also, I don't think we brought that much pressure against Rives. Lots of 4-man rushes. The Suggs influence on the Carr INT was a stunt. The ZDS was just winning with a straight 4-man rush. 

 

We've been more exotic about who rushes, but (and I haven't looked at the actual results) rather than rushing a high volume. And guys have been winning their one on ones.

So of 41 plays they blitzed more than 5 just once. They did blitz 5 on 16 leading to 2 more sacks, but with two fewer turnovers. The Ravens were successful in what I thought were a lot of Green Dog Blitzes in the Titans game though and I wonder how many of those 16 were the same case. Where the fifth rusher is only rushing because his TE/RB stays in to block so you come on a delay or continue pursuit. 

 

Regardless of that putting 6 and 7 into coverage is a really nice balance. I like the mix of 5 and 6 man blitz. You're not leaving guys in Cover zero, generally speaking you can mix zone and man.

Kitchens makes his move as a legit head coach candidate (WKNR)

Apparently Ward is in concussion protocol. He had been out for a few weeks with a concussion and then got one his first game back last week vs Cinci.

Sounds like he won’t play Sunday although no one knows with concussions.

This feeling is awesome. Exciting gameday experience, playoff atmosphere, and if we win we get a real playoff game the following week.

 

I've missed this. So much.

I think it will.

 

On a side note, I just got a voicemail from the Ravens. They extended playoff ticket sale through tomorrow. Since they make you buy two games, it's $500 for my seats (2 tickets for each game).

 

I think I am going to just try to buy them from a broker if they make it, and hope the weather drives the price down a bit. But it'll suck not being in my seats for that game(s).

You didn't do the opt in.??

 

You only pay as they play.

Been so long since we had a home game I forgot I could do that.

 

However, I can't see how much they're charging for the Wild Card round game. I've never been thrilled about the way the payment page is set up for Ravens.com

I did the "pay as we play" option.

 

Glad to have my seats for the playoffs*.

 

*If we make it in.

I have more nerves about this game than the Chargers game.

 

I dunno, man. It's not because of any analysis, or schemes, or anything...something just feels off.

 

Maybe it's just gas. I did have a lot of spinach.

I'm pretty sure that's it tbh. My head says 27-10, my heart says, "losing on a GW FG after an awful turnover."
