The Ravens are 2-1 and Joe Flacco has lead his squad to two victories over the past three weeks. In those games Cheap Hayden Hurst Jersey , he’s thrown six touchdowns and two interceptions. He’s come through and completed big-time throws to his three new wide receivers and also the tight end unit. These three games feel refreshing as the offense continues to score time and time again, therefore I felt obligated to compare his impressive 2018 start to the seasons’ prior, dating back to 2012.Joe Flacco season comparisonYear2018201720162015201420132012Year2018201720162015201420132012Looking over the numbers you realize Flacco’s playing some of his best football since 2012.Joe’s completion percentage is middle-of-the-pack for the seven seasons being compared but that’s fine when you’re throwing for more yards. The only three-game start with more yards is his 2012 season, which is only 24 yards greater than 2018. Keep in mind, Flacco didn’t finish the first game in 2018 as the Ravens blew out the Buffalo Bills 47-3, keeping Joe from more yardage.This is also the most touchdowns Flacco’s thrown for in a three-game opening stretch since 2012. Notice, he’s tied his lowest interception total for this measurement, with two. His average over the six prior years sits around 2.8 interceptions.The worrisome stat coincides with the sacks; only the 2013 season featured more, which shows this offensive line isn’t always keeping Flacco upright and protected. Hopefully, the offensive line will tighten it up as they develop over the season. Under the bright lights Eric Weddle Jersey , the Baltimore Ravens will march into Heinz Field to face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Although records seldom matter in this rivalry, the typical defensive slugfest may have a different mood this time around. Pittsburgh has been one of the worst defensive teams in football through three weeks, while the Ravens boast one of the best defensive units in the league. The key matchup to watch in this game will be Ben Roethlisberger’s No. 4 ranked offense sans Le’Veon Bell against Baltimore’s No. 1 ranked defense.1. Can the Ravens contain Pittsburgh’s tight ends?Last season, Baltimore struggled to limit opposing tight ends. They allowed the 10th most yards to tight ends and the eight most touchdowns. One season later, it has been a much different story as they have only allowed 14 receptions for 136 yards and no touchdowns. Against the Bengals, neither Tyler Kroft nor Tyler Eifert had success against Baltimore as they combined for four receptions for 34 yards. In week four, the Ravens will have a difficult matchup as Jesse James and Vance McDonald are both savvy veterans, who can make an impact in the passing game. McDonald is coming off of a dominant showing against the Buccaneers, where he totaled 112 receiving yards and a touchdown. Can the combination of C.J. Mosley, Tony Jefferson Cheap Za'Darius Smith Jersey , and Kenny Young limit this duo?2. Without Jimmy Smith, how much of a factor will Antonio Brown be?Antonio Brown has had his way with Baltimore’s defense when Jimmy Smith has been on the sidelines. In the last three regular-season games that Smith has missed, Brown has posted 32 receptions for 453 yards and two touchdowns, most notably his 213 yard game last year in week 14. Marlon Humphrey may be forced to shadow Brown as Brandon Carr struggles against speedier receivers, and the Ravens employed a similar strategy last week against the Broncos. Regardless of who matches up with Brown, can Baltimore prevent him from wreaking havoc?3. Against a weak pass defense, will Joe Flacco have success?Pittsburgh is having an uncharacteristic season defensively. Their secondary has been atrocious, specifically their cornerbacks. Joe Flacco is coming off of a solid performance against the Broncos, where his deep-ball accuracy was quite impressive. Can he build off of that momentum? Artie Burns should be the cornerback Flacco targets early and often. With Mike Hilton and Morgan Burnett listed as doubtful, the horrible Pittsburgh secondary will be short-handed Alex Lewis Jersey , but can Flacco take advantage?4. Can the much-maligned Baltimore running game establish themselves?The Ravens’ rushing attack has not started out the way many had hoped. They are ranked 26th in rushing yards, but ninth in attempts. This phase has been plagued by poor blocking, but against a suspect run defense, can they right the ship? Alex Collins had success against AFC North, particularly the Steelers last season. Can he regain his old form?5. How will the Ravens’ offensive line handle a potent pass rush?As horrendous as Pittsburgh’s defense has been — 29th overall, 26th pass defense, and 25th run defense — they are surprisingly tied for second in sacks with 11. Baltimore’s offensive line has been solid in pass protection, including a remarkable performance against Von Miller, but they showcased their flaws against the Bengals. Can his unit keep another talented pass rush at bay or will it be a replay of Thursday Night Football?
