Monday Night Football recap: JAC 12,BAL 7
What a horrible game played by these two teams! The only touchdown of the game was scored in the 4th Quarter and Baltimore had only 2 first downs all game! The Jaguars defense looked extremely impressive against a normally-potent BAL offense. Cornerback Rashean Mathis smothered these Ravens receivers in man coverage; that’s the reason why Flacco couldn’t throw the ball. Flacco finished with a passer rating of 61, while Gabbert finished with a rating of 59. Josh Scobee hit 4 field goals, 3 of them being 50+ yards. That’s some major fantasy points right there! Something was wrong with MJD, as he fumbled 3 times. Good thing is, he only lost 1 of those fumbles.
In all honest, I thought this was gonna be like the Saints-Colts game 2 nights ago (Ravens blowing out the Jaguars). The game did not happen that way, and instead we were treated to a defensive battle. But when you think of Jaguars, do you think defense? No, when you think of Baltimore, you think defense.
Also, I must admit that my prediction was wrong. I chose the Ravens to blow out the Jaguars last night. I don’t think anyone saw this game coming. I even highlighted why the Ravens are so much better than the Jaguars! Unfortunately, none of that stuff matters when they go out and play the game: it’s who wants it more, that’s who’ll win the game.
Till tomorrow (when we do the power rankings),
