Harsh, yeah, and it’s not Joe Flacco’s fault the Ravens have somehow assembled the league’s most uninspiring offensive supporting cast around him. But until Flacco retires, a persistent issue around the Ravens will be his contract, which went through the roof after he won the Super Bowl for them as a pending free agent with the greatest month of his life.
The contract is the gift that keeps on taking, as Flacco costs $24.55 million against this year’s salary cap, $24.75 million against next year’s and $26.5 million in 2019, which is the first year they could even think about cutting him. And even if they did cut him in 2019, he’d still cost them $16 million in dead money. Which would all be fine … if Flacco had kept playing the way he played during that Super Bowl run. He has not. The Ravens have no reason to have any confidence in any aspect of their offense. Ryan Mallett is the backup.
An added benefit to the Texans’ 445-yard output against the Titans was the methodical precision in which they controlled the line of scrimmage and, by proxy, time of possession. That served as a significant aid to a defense that has performed unevenly thus far, a unit looking to maintain momentum when the Kansas City Chiefs (4-0) visit NRG Stadium on Sunday night.
The Texans (2-2) were ravaged on the ground by Jacksonville in their opener and left vulnerable through the air by the Patriots two weeks later. Sandwiched around those losses were strong defensive performances against the Bengals and Titans, against whom the Texans possessed the ball 19 seconds shy of 40 minutes. Tennessee managed 41 offensive plays, a number that allowed for the Texans to remain fresh defensively throughout the blowout.
