After the Baltimore Ravens season ended abruptly in the divisional playoff game, the Ravens look to make a deeper push into the playoffs this season.
After making a couple of key off season moves, the Ravens should have a better team on the field. An with the help of these players, there could be another championship brought to the charm city.
The main off season acquisitions came on the offensive side of the ball with Anquan Boldin, Donte’ Stallworth, and T.J. Houshmandzadeh adding some real talent and weapons for Joe Flacco and the rest of the Ravens offense.
It seems that finally the Ravens offense has caught up to the defense, which should make the Ravens a balanced and dangerous team in the NFL.
The new offensive weapons were on showcase Monday night, when the Ravens took on the New York Jets. Boldin had a 110 yards on 7 catches, which was a big part in the Ravens getting the win. Houshmandzadeh had 1 catch for 27 yards, and also helped the Ravens offense with a couple of pass interference calls on the Jets defense. Stallworth is on the disabled list, and should help complement the other two receivers that the Ravens picked up this off season.
Not to mention the outstanding play from tight end Todd Heap who had 6 catches for 72 yards, with a key diving catch for 35 yards to help the Ravens put the Jets away. We should be seeing a lot of this great play from the Ravens offense for the rest of the season.
Lets take a break from the revamped Ravens offense and talk about the Ravens defense that has been the corner stone for the Ravens success in the last couple of years. They showed on Monday night that they still have the power to be great, by just shutting down the other teams offense.
The Ravens defense is one of the leagues best defenses year in and year out, but this year the Ravens offense should be just like the defense and come out on top of the league when it comes to offense.
What the Ravens put on display Monday, is just a taste of whats to come for the Ravens in the upcoming season.
