The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Baltimore Ravens Shut Out the Green Bay Packers on the Road

Baltimore Ravens Shut Out the Green Bay Packers on the Road

Packers-Ravens Recap
Publish Date: 11/20/2017
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Game: Green Bay Packers vs. Baltimore Ravens
Game Result: Baltimore Ravens 23, Green Bay Packers 0

Brett Hundley and the Green Bay Packers offense looked downright terrible Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. The offense looked completely inept, as they turned the ball over five times on the day, including three Hundley interceptions. Despite allowing 23 points, the defense actually played pretty well. The Ravens were held to six points on five drives in the first half, despite three Packers turnovers. The offense just couldnโ€™t pay anything together to support them, and the defense wore down as the game went on.

After leading the team down the field on the first drive, Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith made a great read to jump Hundleyโ€™s pass intended for wideout Randall Cobb and intercept the ball in the end zone. This drive was, quite possibly, the last positive things that Hundley did on the day. He was sacked six times on the day, which was frequently as a result of him holding the ball too long. The Packers outgained the Ravens 265-219, which is incredible for a team that got shut out, but also shows just how pitiful of a showing this was for the Packers offense. Despite the offenses struggles, the connection between Davante Adams and Hundley remained strong, as Adams finished with eight catches for 126 yards.

At the same time that the Packers offense was inept, the Ravens offense wasnโ€™t much better. They put up only 23 points, despite five packer turnovers, five punts and three turnover on downs forced by the defense. Joe Flacco finished 22-28 on the day, but rarely pushed the ball down the field, as he averaged only 6.5 yards per completion. Alex Collins came into this game averaging 5.1 yards per carry, but only managed 49 yards on 20 carries. The offenses struggles were surprising considering the Packers defense had been one of the worst in the league, despite all of the personnel changes made in the offseason. The AFC wild card race is wide-open, and, if Baltimoreโ€™s defense can continue their stellar play, the offense will be what puts them in the contender conversation.

This is the second game since Hundley became the starter that the defense played well, but just ran out of steam, because the offense gave them no support. The defense forced seven punts, as well as, picked off Flacco early in the game to shut down a promising Baltimore drive. Young quarterbacks typically struggle against good defenses and Hundley did. However, these struggles were too much for how much talent is on this offense. The NFC North is very competitive, and if the Packers want to remain in the hunt, then the offense is going to need to use the next week very effectively.

The Ravens (5-5) will look to continue their playoff push next week at home against the Houston Texans (4-6), who will surely be riding high after a win over the Arizona Cardinals. Meanwhile, the Packers (5-5) head to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers (8-2), who will be well rested after their Thursday night shellacking of the Tennessee Titans.
