Week 7: vs Atlanta Falcons

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Joe Flacco went off in the first seventeen minutes of the game at Tampa Bay last week, slinging TDs apparently at will - Baltimore led 35-0 on the strength of those five passing scores at 13:57 left in the second quarter! WOW! When it was all said and done, Flacco finished with 21/29 for 306 yards passing, five TDs and zero interceptions thrown, and a 48-17 victory. Torrey Smith did make good on his Twitter promise to improve, and he hauled in two of the five passing scores, with five targets for 4/51/2, while Steve Smith led the team in receiving with six targets for 5/110/1 on the day. Only Owen Daniels disappointed, with just three targets for 2/34/0 receiving - backup wide receivers Michael Campanaro (two for 2/28/1) and Kamar Aiken (three for 2/20/1) also pulled in TDs during the saturation bombing of Tampa. The Falcons' pass D is not good, averaging 277.7 net passing yards allowed per game, with three times as many TDs (six) as interceptions generated (two, tied for next-to-last in the NFL). The Falcons have a paltry seven sacks, tied for 26th in the NFL. Jay Cutler threw for over 350 net yards last week (26/38 for 368 net passing yards, one TD and zero interceptions, with three sacks taken for -13 yards); Eli Manning had a more restrained 19/30 for 193 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions vs. Atlanta two games back. Advantage, Baltimore. They enjoy great matchups in both phases of the game - they may well approach 500 yards combined on offense again this week...

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 4 vs CAR (10 / 7 / 139 / 2 rec)

Steve Smith dominated in his return to Carolina. He opened the game displaying his impressive run after the catch ability. Even with an imperfect throw and a defender closing in, Smith can plant his foot in the ground and explode up field past the defender. Coupled with a vicious stiff arm, he can turn 2 yard dump offs into 15 yard gains. Smith's second reception was even more impressive on a comeback route where he reached down and away from his body to snatch the ball out of the air. He then fought for 2 extra yards and a first down. His biggest play of the game came on a target to Owen Daniels who tipped the ball into the air directly into Smith's hands for a walk in 60 touchdown. Smith's next touchdown was a well-run 9 route he easily separated from the corner and made a leaping catch in the corner of the end zone despite being interfered with.

2014 Week 5 vs IND (7 / 5 / 34 / 0 rec)

Steve Smith wasn't as involved as he usually is and faced much more man to man coverage than in previous weeks from a pesky Vontae Davis. Smith made his first catch on a slant beating Davis inside and extending his arms for a nice catch and 16 yards. On one play Smith wasn't covered by Davis, he drew a 28 yard pass interference penalty as he tried to run past Toler. Steve Smith dropped a 3rd down conversion to stall a drive. Smith was contained well by the Colts who didn't allow him to do damage after the catch or get separation downfield.

2014 Week 6 vs TB (6 / 5 / 110 / 1 rec)

Steve Smith had another dominate game. Smith got an end zone target but could only get one hand on the pass. Smith ran a double move against Verner who didn't bite on the fake but Smith accelerated and fought past him to catch a well thrown deep ball from Flacco for a 56 yard touchdown. Smith caught a nicely timed slant route for 13 yards. On a later possession Smith caught 3 targets to power a scoring drive. The first was a deep in route for 18 yards. The second was a well-timed comeback. The third was a slant just in front of the defender. Smith remains the Ravens' key chain mover and very involved in the offense.
