It’s easy to say this is a game we should have won (and we should have), but if you look at the stats they beat us thoroughly.  In every stat I see the Ravens out performed us (except for penalties).  See for yourself:

Who’s to blame for this one?  Only Bret Favre and Tony Romo can win a game having 5 fumbles (4 turned over).  Can you blame coaching for mistakes?  At this point I’m going to say yes.  The Ravens are a very beatible team, but we handed the game to them.  Of course there was a blatant pass interference call that was missed at the end of the contest which turned out to be a game changer.  Instead of gaining a first down and a chance for a more likely field goal, it became 4th down and what turned out ot be an unmakeable FG.

With this disappointing loss we fall to 4-6.  Next week we play a very good Bengals team in Cincinatti (yeah that’s going to go well).

Until then… have a great week Ram’s fans!
