Don\t lose to the Bills if you want respect
Ravens HC John Harbaugh gives biggest points of concern vs. Titans
The Baltimore Ravens are licking their wounds going into a Week 6 road trip to face the Tennessee Titans. Baltimore comes off a rough 12-9 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns, where turnovers and missed opportunities proved costly and gave their once cellar-dwelling AFC North rivals a jolt of life. Both teams are chasing the Cincinnati Bengals in the division standings.

The trip to Nashville marks the third straight week the Ravens will be on the road. They previously won in Pittsburgh and lost to Cleveland, which means their next three AFC North games will all be in the friendly confines of M&T Bank Stadium. The hope is for the Ravens offense to get on track against a tough Titans defense and to carry that momentum back home, where the Ravens will play four of the next five games.

Dean Pees hopes that Sundays game against his former team goes well for him, and poor for his former co-workers. Its pretty wild that hes coached for 2 of the players he coached.

The loss to Cleveland was stinging, and it ended with a wobbly 37-yard field goal by the Browns Greg Joseph. Ravens veteran Michael Crabtree had a couple key drops in the game and put the burden on himself to fix his own woes and get the teams passing game, which showed so much promise early, back on track.

The Titans-Ravens rivalry is a hard-fought defensive contest that almost always comes down to the last blow of the whistle.

By then, Mosley was in his second season in Baltimore, where hes been joined by four former teammates — cornerback Anthony Averett and center Bradley Bozeman, NFL rookies this season who were redshirts in Mosleys final Alabama campaign; cornerback Cyrus Jones, who was a freshman wide receiver for the 2012 BCS national-championship team before converting to the secondary; and outside linebacker Tim Williams, a freshman in Mosleys final Alabama season.

The last time the two teams met was Nov. 5, 2017 when the Titans beat the Ravens in Nashville, 23-20.

Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports Just one week ago, the Tennessee Titans and their fans were clamoring for more respect. They had just beaten the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in overtime with their best offensive performance of the season. Marcus Mariota looked like he had returned to form, receiver Corey Davis had his best game as a pro, and the defense sacked Carson Wentz four times. The Titans fan base was energized.

Earlier this week, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh laid out the things that stand out most to him as his team takes on the Titans in Nissan Stadium this weekend.

Starting quarterback Marcus Mariota has been the glue holding the Titans offense together. He’s put the ball in the right places even when dealing with an elbow injury, and made plays off his own mobility when he’s had to.

“(Matthew) Judon has worked his way into being a very good outside linebacker in this league. ZaDarius Smith is a hybrid guy. When you have a veteran safety that can get guys lined up and disguise, it makes it very difficult. Theyve batted 40 balls this year.”

“It starts with the quarterback,” Harbaugh said of the Titans QB. “I think theyre built around him. He does a really good job of running and passing – all the read stuff theyve done, the drop back and play action. He does it very well. Hes a good runner.”

While they’ve had their share of struggles on offense, the Ravens have been recognized for their defense for years. They won’t be easy to take down, and there’s a reason why they’re the first unit Vrabel mentioned.
