Five Things We Learned from the Ravens’ 23-0 win over the Green Bay Packers

1. Despite the impressive final score, we saw the best and the worst of the 2017 Ravens.

This was a crucial step in the Ravens’ quest to snag an AFC wild-card spot. And whenever you go to Lambeau Field and pitch a shutout, it’s hard to quibble.

But make no mistake: We still saw most of the flaws that have kept the Ravens from becoming a surefire playoff team.

The defense ended each of Green Bay’s first three drives with a takeaway. Yet the offense converted those superb opportunities into a meager three points.

Joe Flacco flubbed a golden scoring opportunity when he forced a pass to Danny Woodhead despite the fact that Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix had clear inside position on the Ravens running back. It was the type of interception Flacco has thrown all too often in recent seasons. And we’ve seen the Ravens pay dearly for such mistakes against the better teams on their schedule.

The Ravens’ rushing attack, a strength early in the season, has also struggled three of the past four games. Alex Collins averaged just 2.5 yards a carry against the Packers, though he ran extremely hard behind substandard blocking.

On the other hand, the defense really is a nightmare for inexperienced quarterbacks
