The nightmare from last week's loss to Jacksonville followed the Baltimore Ravens back home to M&T Bank Stadium. In the 2nd quarter they were staring down a 21 point deficit to an NFC team on a five gaming losing streak. Yes the Arizona Cardinals were dominating the Ravens at home and if adjustments weren't made, the Ravens looked to be in serious trouble of dropping another game to a lesser team.
What followed was historic. The Ravens had their largest comeback in franchise history as they went on to win 30-27. The epic comeback moves the Ravens to 5-2 and keeps them in contention with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers for the lead in the AFC North.
The comeback win was fueled by their defense which clamped down on the Cardinals offense from the second quarter onward. Credit also needs to be given to Joe Flacco's mastery of the no huddle that helped the passing offense make some big plays.
With a huge game against the Steelers next week, it's concerning the Ravens barely got past the Cardinals. Here's my take on which position groups played well and which need to improve for next week.
