Bye-week Stats: Offense Ranked 21st, Defense 14th

Recommended Posts

Here's some interesting stats from Joe Platania of PressBox. Joe's a real good source for Ravens information.

 

 

- The Ravens have committed 49 accepted penalties, tied for 10th most with Denver, Detroit and Dallas; the Lions and Cowboys will play each other Oct. 27. Baltimore has 11 false-start infractions, tied for third most, and six offensive holding calls. The team's six unnecessary-roughness penalties are second only to Tampa Bay.

- Tandon Doss continues to lead the league in punt-return average at 17.8 yards per return. If the season ended now, that would set a team record, breaking the 16.1 set by Lamont Brightful in 2002 and Jermaine Lewis in 2000. Doss' four returns of 20 or more yards are tied for second most, and he has made a fair catch for five of 20 punts.

- Through the air, the Ravens have allowed 238.7 yards per game, ranking them 18th in the NFL. But that's 5 yards more than last year and the total is the most since the 1996 debut team allowed 248.6. The team's 25 sacks are second most to Kansas City's 35,

- The Ravens have run the ball 185 times and, including sacks allowed, have attempted to pass it on 289 occasions, a minus-104 ratio. They are averaging a dead-last 2.8 yards per carry.

- Despite two slow weeks, wideout Torrey Smith still has a 20.3-yard per-catch average, the NFL's best. His 89.9-yard per-game average is eighth best, and his 14 catches of 20 or more yards lead the entire league.

It's never a good thing when you're compared to the '96 defensive unit.

 

The parts of this team are not working together to get that winning formula.

The Defense has to get more 3 and outs and give the offense the ball in decent field position.

The offense has to convert more 3rd downs, move the chains and stay on the field....and...oh yea...score touchdowns.

Ngata has been a huge disappointment yet again. I hope Brandon Williams continues to progress and get more time.

More troubling stats....

 

 

21 total missed tackles by the Ravens on special teams.

The Ravens had one of the NFL’s best special teams units last season. But this year, as they work new players into key roles, the Ravens have struggled with kickoff and punt coverage. They have yet to allow a touchdown though they sure came close Sunday but they rank 28th in the NFL in kickoff return coverage (26.4 yards per return) and 24th in punt return coverage (9.4 yards per return). One of the issues has been tackling. According to Pro Football Focus, the Ravens have already missed 21 tackles on special teams in 2013, with Anthony Levine and Matt Elam leading the team with three apiece. During the 2012 regular season, the Ravens missed just 20 tackles on special teams.

47.7 Joe Flacco’s passer rating on deep balls in 2013.

No one threw deep balls more often than Flacco last season. The Ravens quarterback attempted a pass traveling at least 20 yards on a league-high 17.3 percent of his passes in 2012, according to Pro Football Focus. In 2013, he is 11th in the NFL, at 13.8 percent. And when Flacco has gone deep, the results haven’t been as good. Last season, Flacco had 11 touchdown passes and zero interceptions when throwing passes at least 20 yards. This season, he is 9-for-37 on such attempts, for 383 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions, according to Pro Football Focus. That gives Flacco a passer rating of 47.7 on his deep attempts. An inconsistent deep passing game has hurt the Ravens.

Last season the running game was productive and the offensive line was healthy and protective. That hasn't been the case this year. Plus without Boldin and Pitta taking away the middle routes, Torrey was one on one a lot last year. This year he's being bracketed. And Jones was out for 4 games of the seven played so far. That has really killed the deep passing game.

 

By the way: whatever happened to Deonte Thompson? He's disappeared.

Last yr we had some playmakers and this yr Joe has had no help....Hopefully JJ and Pitta coming back will eliminate that problem....And I think DT was sent to IR with a leg injury..

Points per game wise I think the D is ranked 11th and that includes the beatdown in Denver where the D was definitely at a huge disadvantage. I think they are much improved over 2012. The biggest concerns for me with the D is their tendency to wilt in the 4th quarter and their inability to generate turnovers as well as they have in the past.

If the O would show up for the whole game, then the D might be able to make it into the 4th quarter.
