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’ 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions Monday night at Ford Field…
(Note: not all pictures are always of actual play)
Glenn Clark’s Plays…
5. Louis Delmas called for unnecessary roughness after Joe Flacco pass intended for Marlon Brown incomplete on 3rd down (2nd quarter)
Ended up giving the Ravens three points in a spot where they would have gotten nothing.
4. Daryl Smith sacks Matthew Stafford for five yard loss at Baltimore 47 (1st quarter)
Lions had moved the ball at will on first two drives until this play, game appeared to be headed to a shootout or even a blowout.
3. Matt Elam intercepts Matthew Stafford pass intended for Nate Burleson (4th quarter)
2. Jacoby Jones 27 yard catch from Joe Flacco on 3rd & 15 (4th quarter)
The significance of this play has somehow been lost.
1. Justin Tucker 61 yard field goal GOOD (4th quarter)
I still don’t believe it.
