Ravens vs. Redskins: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly from the Redskins Game

1 of 4

    For the first time in Joe Flacco's career, he has suffered through two consecutive defeats.

    Prior to Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, Flacco had been 15-0 in games after losing the week before.

    That streak (much like the Ravens' home winning streak and their divisional winning streak) has come to an end.

    After blowing yet another second-half lead, the Ravens fell to 9-4.

    Luckily for them, both the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers also came out of Sunday as losers, and the Ravens continue to lead the AFC North by two games.

The Good: Ravens Running Attack

    For the second straight week, the Ravens' running game looked impressive.

    Once again, Ray Rice averaged more than six yards per carry (121 yards on 20 carries). He also scored a touchdown in the losing effort.

    Bernard Pierce also looked great, racking up 53 yards on eight carries.

    For a Ravens team that looked pretty sad in most other facets of the game, Rice and Pierce gave Ravens fans something to be happy about.

The Bad: Joe Flacco

    The numbers aren't all that bad.

    On Sunday afternoon, Joe Flacco, who completed 76 percent of his passes, threw for three touchdowns and only one interception.

    That it where the good ends.

    Once again, Flacco failed to reach the 200-yard plateau.

    Flacco also proved that his pocket presence is abysmal.

    Not only did he fumble after being hit from his blind side (again), but even when seeing the pressure, he wasn't able to throw the ball away. Instead, he was hit as he threw and the ball ended up being picked off.

    The worst part of that turnover? It was well inside kicker Justin Tucker's field-goal range.

    Flacco has become a liability and cause for concern.

    So much for being an elite quarterback.

The Ugly: Cam Cameron and the Defense

4 of 4

    Cam Cameron's play-calling continues to be an enigma.

    After continually going for the deep bomb on first down and failing, leaving the team without a manageable third down, you'd think an offensive coordinator would change up his strategy.

    Week after week we see the same thing, making this Ravens offense one of the most predictable units in the league.

    It's no wonder that the patience of Ravens fans continues to wane with regard to Cam Cameron.

    Something has to change soon, or he could be looking for a new job in 2013.

    As for the defense this week?

    They gave up more than 440 yards and three TDs to the Redskins.

    The game-tying TD and ensuing two-point conversion? Given up to backup QB Kirk Cousins.

    Downright ugly.
