Think about it......
With the exception of the Houston game, the Ravens season can be summed up by.....inches
- Flacco gets the first down on opening drive on sneak play, ball comes loose with his knee inches off the ground.
- pass thrown behind Boldon for pick 6
- Torrey Smith makes a fantastic catch out of bounds by a few inches
- Score a TD in the second half, recover the fumble on the kickoff out of bounds.....by inches
Reid recovers the fumbled punt at the end of regulation in bounds, game over.
questionable blocking on the 'blind side' causes Flacco to fumble, Oher missed chipping the defender by a few inches. he gets that Ole! chip on the defender, Flacco gets the ball out of his hands....
HORRIBLE call on Jones offensive pass interference on TD. replacement refs make a judgement call that they got wrong.
Rice gets 1st down on 4th and forever by inches.....
the breaks have gone their way this year, and against them as well. With the injuries piled up, and backups' backups starting, a team needs to win the game of inches, and have a few breaks go their way.
Let's hope that all the bad inches are out of their system now moving into the playoffs....
