Following every Baltimore Ravens game this season, Ryan Chell and I will take to the airwaves Tuesdays on “The Reality Check” on AM1570 WNST.net with a segment known as “The Five Plays That Determined The Game.”
It’s a simple concept. We’ll select five plays from each game that determined the outcome. These five plays will best represent why the Ravens won or lost each game.
This will be our final analysis of the previous game before switching gears towards the next game on the schedule.
Here are the five plays that determined the Ravens’ 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium…
(Note: not all pictures are always of actual play)
Glenn Clark’s Plays…
5. Eddie Lacy 4 yard run on 3rd & 2 (4th quarter)
This “ended” the game, but Ravens would have needed a miracle even if they stopped the run.
4. Sam Koch punts for 37 yards, touchback on 4th & 9 (1st quarter)
An exchange of 17 yards of field position instead of a field goal try? Or going for it? Or taking a penalty?
3. Datone Jones recovers Joe Flacco fumble forced by Nick Perry at Ravens’ 13 (2nd quarter)
Just an absolute disaster that lead to free points.
2. Jermichael Finley 52 yard catch from Aaron Rodgers on 3rd & 3 (4th quarter)
The play that really ended things.
1. Jordy Nelson 64 yard TD catch from Aaron Rodgers (3rd quarter)
In watching film, no play seemed to turn things more dramatically. Ravens had made it one possession again only to fall behind by two TD’s.
