Ravens notes from Bills gameday.


Top 2 Bills Advantages

Good advantage – Pass defense – The Bills have an experienced secondary that’s capable of breaking out with takeaways at any time. Buffalo is surrendering less than 150 yards of passing offense a game to rank 10th in the league. Baltimore has improved their talent level at receiver, but the Bills have capable coverage defenders.


Best advantage - Kick return – Buffalo’s 12th ranked return unit with C.J. Spiller can be an intimidating group and Baltimore has had their share of problems. The Ravens are allowing more than 27 yards per kick return ranking 27th in the NFL


(Edit: 27 kickoffs only allowed one big one.. a 60 yarder against Cincy, we have been playing against the leagues 2,3,6,8,30,32 kickreturning units.. number 30 was that cincy man, and 32 the only one I really fear.. Cribbs. A total of 10 returns and we allow the fewest kick return yards in the league.. so much for the advantage Bills migth like here thanks to..)


Big leg

Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff has always had a big leg, but that leg strength has been especially effective on kickoffs this season. No other kicker in the league has a better touchback percentage than Cundiff, who already has a NFL best 14 touchbacks on 25 kickoffs. It has helped to keep the average drive start of opponents to less than the 24-yard line (23.9), which is seventh best in the league. Cundiff needs just two more touchbacks to set the franchise mark for touchbacks in a season.


Stingy ‘D’

The Baltimore defense has had a reputation for being a stifling unit that shuts the door on opponents. Over each of the past two seasons the Ravens have ranked third in the league in points allowed (16.3 and 15.3). This year is proving no different. Through the season’s first six weeks, the Ravens are allowing 15.8 points per game, good for the second best in the NFL.


To illustrate just how stingy Baltimore has been on defense, they have yet to surrender a touchdown off a turnover. Of their nine giveaways this season the Ravens have surrendered all of nine points (3 FGs). They also have the league’s third best red zone defense allowing touchdowns just over 35 percent of the time (35.3%).



Ravens nest

Baltimore has proven to be a tough side to top when they’re playing at home. Since 2000, they own the NFL’s third-best regular season home record going 60-22 in that span. The Ravens will go into Sunday’s game with a five-game winning streak at M&T Bank Stadium stretching back to last year. They also put more points on the board on their home turf. In their last four home games the Ravens have averaged 33.5 points per game, and under head coach John Harbaugh when Baltimore scores at least 24 points they’re 18-1. (Edit; Oh should have been 19-0... remember Minnesota and Hauchka.)


Final note

Since 2008, the Ravens have allowed an average of 11.6 points per game at home, the NFL’s best mark.

Reed seems set to play

No one knows for sure how long or if Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed will play, but he is slated to be introduced today with the starting defense. Reed hasn't played this season because of offseason hip surgery, but he was removed from the PUP list and practiced this week with the team.
