A soft call like that in the last few minutes of the game is inexcusable. Imagine if the shoes were reversed. We'd be livid! 


These things all even out.

How about the no-calls on "hit to a defenseless receiver" in back-to-back weeks against the Bills -- to Dawson Knox last week and McKenzie this week. Both should've been worth 15 yards.

Blaming a loss on the refs is chump *****. Maybe Ravens fans should be upset that their team couldn't score a single second half point or that they gave up 20 unanswered to the Bills.

Big win - didn't see it coming. That first quarter was so bad, and when we went 3 and out with about 2-3 minutes left at the end of the first I thought we were toast. At that point, with the way things were going, it felt like Ravens would score before HT and on their first possession of the 2nd half too.

 

So going in at 10-20 instead of 3-27 was absolutely huge, and I think that had the effect of both galvanizing the Bills and making the Ravens creak. We'd played so badly and yet we only had a 10 point deficit. 

 

2nd half was so good comparatively - although still felt the Bills were some way off their absolute best. 

 

Poyer - there was a thread the other day about not paying the guy when his contract's up, and it may well be the right move. But my word I love that guy. his knack of being in exactly the right place at the right time is just uncanny. The ground he had to make up for that 2nd INT - had no right to get there.

 

And as for Josh.....running out of superlatives. Massive for him to have a big come-back win. Kept his head so well and some unbelievable plays. 

 

Shakir promising too!

 

Huge win. HUGE.

The BEST thing is... I did that reverse psychology bet thing and bet on the Ravens (since many of us Bills fans are convinced that we bring bad luck to the team), but I got in the line when it was Bills -3.5 before it went down to -3 where it was for the majority of the week, so Bills win AND I won.  Love it.

Thats based on his skill set. He has never been a good passer to the boundries.  They had and still do have solid receivers on that team.  Even Sammy Watkins couldnt get the ball on that team.

Plus they give him Greg Roman as an OC

And he's done very well in it, but they don't want to pay him for some reason

 

Jackson 100% deserves better than the Ravens 

 

 

 

How so?  By getting him star outside receivers?  Lamar isnt good at throwing to the boundries.  He just isnt.  Star outside receivers isnt going to do that team much good.  Maybe another TE as good as Andrews but those arent easy to find.  They are either going to give Lamar a huge contract like Watson because he seems unwilling to take any less and that team will fall apart in the talent department or Lamar will be on another team that isnt built for his skillset with an OC that doesnt have plays designed for his skillset like Roman is.  The dude is not a pocket passing QB.

Bulldog on wgr made a good point about the roughing the passer - it came on first down. It wasnt 3rd or 4th down. Had it been 3rd or 4th down, I think it would've been a little more ticky tack.

If the ravens player doesn't wrap his arms around Allen I don't think it gets called.

 

If he just kind of ran through making an attempt to avoid him it doesn't get called

 

Really no reason he needed to wrap up which is why it was called in my opinion

Looks like Picket might get the start. Not sure if that's good or bad. Either way the Bills should win but we know how that goes. 

Bet the Bills and give up whaetver points they're favored by, probably 14?  Frasier destroys rookie QB's

Oh I agree but that doesn't ease the Raven fans pain or make the refs decision correct. 



But again...if they want to be salty, they should be salty that their team couldn't score a single second half point or stop the Bills from scoring 20 unanswered.

Blaming the refs is for losers.

I watch a lot of rugby over here. And the South African world champions are accused of this exact thing. But they just say that their  Plan B is to execute Plan A better.  lol

I can see that, but, being that the Bills haven’t been world champions…, a plan B would be something to give consideration to…, again, jmo.lol,
