Baltimore Ravens: Receiving Problems

After Sunday night's loss to the San Diego Chargers, the Baltimore Ravens fall to 10-4 on the season and forfeited the right to control their own playoff destiny.

There are greater problems for the Ravens as they enter the postseason.

We all know they have a great running back in Ray Rice who has fullback Vonta Leach as his personal battering ram. While the verdict is still out on whether or not Joe Flacco is a top-notch quarterback, we need to turn our attention to a greater weakness plaguing the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens offensive line can be suspect at times, but the main area of concern is the receiving corps, specifically at the wide receiver position. Disregarding the young tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta, who have been solid throughout the season, the Ravens are hurting at receiving.

Let's take a closer look at the wide receiver position for the Ravens.

You will see they have been playing with really only two guys all year long, neither of whom is a true No. 1 receiver. This has been a problem for them in the past and may even cost them a run at the Super Bowl as they head into the postseason.
