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!
