The Ravens have had moments where they looked to be in control. They have held leads in just about every game this season, but continuously have collapsed in the fourth quarter. This team will continue to lose if they don’t find a way to close out games.

Baltimore has yet to be in the position where they can truly run out a ballgame. Justin Forsett and the rest of the running backs have seen the majority of their carries in the first three quarters as they have been forced to pass in most of the fourth quarters. That also puts a lot of pressure on the defense as they cannot get the rest they need late in games.
As I have previously mentioned, the last time the Chargers were in Baltimore, they made a comeback to steal a win. The Ravens could not run the ball effectively to close out the game, and Rivers was given enough time to lead his team to a late victory. That has been a familiar scene this season and one that needs to come to an end. Find a way to close this game out and head into the bye week feeling better about yourself.
