After a disappointing loss against the Tennessee Titans last week, the Baltimore Ravens rebounded in a big way with a 37-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams. Many people were wondering which team they would see versus the Rams: Would it be the team that dominated the defending AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers, or would it be the underperforming team from last week?
After only one quarter of football the answer was clear. In the first quarter alone, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw three touchdowns to Torrey Smith, who had a breakout performance versus the Rams.
The Ravens added one more touchdown and three field goals throughout the rest of the game. The Rams were only able to manage one touchdown, while Rams quarterback Sam Bradford was sacked five times, threw an interception and lost a fumble.
The Ravens played a complete game on both sides of the ball, and the Rams could not stop their balanced attack on offense. It was an all-around great performance by the whole team, but there were a few things that stood out. Let’s look at what we learned about Baltimore in its 37-7 victory over the Rams.
