Baltimore Ravens: WR Anquan Boldin Is a Star, Makes Offseason Trade Worthwhile

It wasn't the most convincing win the Baltimore Ravens have ever had, but the bottom line is that after Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium the Ravens have improved to 2-1 with a much-needed win in their home opener over the Cleveland Browns behind the performance of newly acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who hauled in eight passes for 140 yards and three TDs.

The atmosphere for the Ravens' home opener was positively electric, and when push comes to shove the home crowd will gladly take this win because it makes for a better tailgate party, but also because the Ravens eased concerns about their passing game following Joe Flacco's hideous four-interception performance the previous week.

At the same time, though, Cleveland Browns RB Peyton Hillis got loose for a massive total of 144 yards and one TD rushing on 22 carries, and was the biggest reason that the Browns led the Ravens 17-14 in the fourth quarter. Such a big game raises concerns about whether the Ravens' vaunted run defense is no longer as good as it once was.
