So where do the Ravens go from here?


“We’re not going to have a problem for one second of our guys doing everything possible to play the kind of football we need to play,” said Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. “What we do need to do is get it there.”

Losers of four straight, Baltimore slumps their way into their bye week. Their latest loss, another embarrassing effort. A 24-16 defeat at the hands of the Jets.


“I’ve been impatient for quite a long time and they know it. They’ve been impatient for quite a long time. But you know what, we don’t get to control everything in life. So we just gotta keep digging and that’s what we’ll do,” said the head coach.


Arguably the most eye-popping issue from Sunday, the running game.  It’s been one of the many trouble spots this season, but yesterday it only mustered a franchise record-low *six* rushing yards on 12 attempts.


“We’re going to be looking at it (the run game) a lot (during the bye week). We’re not going to have a monstrous change in what we’re doing. We believe in the things we’re doing. We just want to do them better,” said Harbaugh. “Gameplan them better, scheme them better, block them better. That second half was about as tough as it gets for our offense. You just try to find a way to win the game with where you’re at.”


The Ravens are banged up as well with several starters out, the upcoming off week should help heal the battered roster before Baltimore hosts the hated Pittsburgh Steelers on November 6.
