This was actually one group on the offensive side that didn’t perform terribly. Though it wasn’t great, Joe Flacco’s several missed throws did not help them out either.

The two leading receivers were none other then Torrey Smith and Steve Smith Sr. They each hauled in five passes, totaling 108 yards and two touchdowns between the two. Yawn. It’s time to get some new receivers involved.

Besides both Smiths, the other Ravens receivers totaled just three catches in this game. As for the tight ends, both Owen Daniels and Crockett Gillmore caught just one pass each. However, you can’t blame that on offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, because Daniels was targeted six times. Flacco was just unable to make any throws.

Grade: B-
