The Ravens haven’t had a lot of big plays recently, but it seems that Baltimore has solved that problem against the Detroit Lions. Two long passes from quarterback Joe Flacco helped extend the score to 34-3.
With the opening possession of the second half, the Ravens marched 74 yards in 11 play. Fullback Le’Ron McClain punched the ball across the goal line from 3 yards out.
The Ravens were able to get down there on a 34-yard bomb to wideout Demetrius Williams, who had to make a leaping grab in the red zone.
On the following series, after the Ravens forced a three-and-out, Flacco launched a rainbow to tight end Todd Heap down the left sideline. Heap made a difficult over-the-shoulder grab to set up Willis McGahee’s 8-yard touchdown run.
