Again, we were running all over the Ravens. The PA Pass was there to be exploited and 9-12 of those 18 attempts should have been over the top for 20+ yards. FFS, Steve DeBerg would have lit shit up yesterday.
And in the process of lighting it up, he would have thrown more than 18 passes.
That's the whole thing - the way they ran the ball in the 1st half almost dictates that you HAVE to pass or you risk the defense just stuffing the box and shutting you down.
Which is precisely what happened.
