Look back on Monday night’s performance against the New York Jets and it will be hard to find much to complain about in the Ravens defense. But locking down a rookie quarterback for one quarter isn’t exactly something to get worked up about. Add in the previous week’s shut out performance against the Redskins and then you start to feel a bit better.
The Ravens first-team defense has shown itself to be as mean as ever in a pair of preseason games, but the unit is far from perfect. There’s no telling just how this defense will perform this season - it’s probably a safe bet to say they’ll be top ten, perhaps even top five, in the league. But Ravens fans know that there is a difference between a good defense and a defense that can win games by itself. This defense has the opportunity to be the latter, but such is an outcome is not a given.
