Week 7 Ravens vs. Jets Live Updates:

FOURTH QUARTER: Jets 24, Ravens 16

3:49 p.m. - Ravens can't get it done. They lose 24-16, their fourth straight loss.

3:39 p.m. - This is telling. Jets have been less than stellar in the second half. But the Ravens have been just as bad, if not worse.

3:35 p.m. - Ravens pick up their fifth sack of the day and the Jets are forced to punt. The Ravens have to take advantage. It won't come on the punt return. Hester barely holds on to the ball and gets blasted in the process.

3:32 p.m. - Lardarius Webb is out with a hamstring injury. Marqueston Huff takes his place. Here's another injury update.

3:30 p.m. - Jeremy Zuttah is getting blown up at center. Joe Flacco trips up and goes down for the sack. Ravens now have a third-and-10 from deep inside their own territory. Ten minutes left. They have some work to do. Flacco overthrows on fourth down, and Jets will get the ball back. 

3:24 p.m. - Huge penalty on Za'Darius Smith. Ryan Fitzpatrick misses on a pass over the middle on third down, but a roughing the passer penalty keeps the Jets on the field. Ravens cannot get out of their own way. But trailing 24-16, they're just one score out of it. That being said, the offense has yet to find the end zone today. 

3:20 p.m. - The Ravens tend to abandon the run in the second half. They shouldn't have the last three weeks. But today, they don't have much choice. The Ravens have 11 yards on 11 carries. That is less than ideal. 

THIRD QUARTER: Jets 24, Ravens 16

3:12 p.m. - Matt Forte plows into the end zone on third down. Jets take a 24-16 lead. 

3:10 p.m. - Things are getting weird. Timmy Jernigan recovers a Matt Forte fumble, but then runs into a teammate and fumbles the ball. Jets reatin the ball in the red zone. First down at the 5-yard-line. Ugh. 

In more simple terms: Jets fumble. Ravens recover. Ravens fumble. Jets recover. 

3:05 p.m. - After a Jets FG gives the home team a 17-16 lead, Flacco tries another deep shot. It's intercepted. After going 176 straight passes without an interception, he throws two consecutive INTs.

3:00 p.m. - Joe Flacco looks for another deep shot, but his pass is late, and Buster Skrine is there for the interception. It was a good throw, but Flacco was late. Jets take over at the Ravens' 3-yard-line. Oooof.

2:56 p.m. - Devin Hester muffs the punt, but falls on it. Hester has muffed three balls this season.

2:53 p.m. - Za'Darius Smith comes up qith another big play, batting a ball on third down. Jets forced to punt. The Ravens have to capitalize when the Jets punt. Has John Harbaugh learned from the team's three straight losses? They need an aggressive second-half game plan. 

2:50 p.m. - Ravens drive stalls and Sam Koch hits a booming punt. Ryan Fitzpatrick will head back out, deep in the Jets' territory. 

2:42 p.m. - Geno Smith is in street clothes and both Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenbrg are inactive. RB Bilal Powell is the emergeancy QB. 

SECOND QUARTER: Ravens 16, Jets 14

2:30 p.m. - Justin Tucker lines up for a 44-yard attempt with four seconds left. Tucker shanks it, but since he's Justin Tucker, it goes through. Ravens take a 16-14 lead at the half. 

2:27 p.m. - Joe Flacco looks deep to Mike Wallace in the end zone. Looks like there was some contact, but the pass falls short. Flacco hits Chris Moore on a short pass. 15 seconds left and the Ravens have no timeouts left. If only they hadn't burned on before punting on their first possession.

2:25 p.m. - a big, 29-yard catch from Kamar Aiken has the Ravens driving with under a minute to go. But now Aiken is banged up. The Ravens are already missing Steve Smith Sr. Aiken has been one of Flacco's go-to guys.

2:20 p.m. - Perhaps Fitzpatrick is better in a reserve, stablizing role. He did a great job filling in after Geno Smith's jaw was broken by then-teammate IK Enemkpali. While the drive is a small sample size, Fitzpatrick does best when he's asked to do work on the fly. 

2:15 p.m. - Jets finding momentum. Anderson picks up a big gain, and then Fitzpatrick finds Matt Forte on a quick pass, and Forte finds the end zone. Jets take the 14-13 lead. Fitzpatrick finishes the drive a perfect 4-of-4.

2:10 p.m. - Geno Smith is headed to the locker room. Ryan Fitzpatrick will enter the game when the Jets get the ball next.

2:06 p.m. - Terrance West blows through the line and takes off for a 49-yard run. But rookie lineman Alex Lewis is flagged for holding, which means the run is for naught. Just one of the issues you encoutner when you have to play backup lineman.

2:01 p.m. - Geno Smith goes down awkwadly on a sack from Matt Judon. H's trying to stay loose on the sidelines, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is getting warm.

1:55 p.m. - Justin Tucker drills a 49-yard field goal into the wind. He's 2-for-2 on the day and 17-for-17 on the year. He good.  Ravens lead 13-7.

1:50 p.m. - Joe Flacco connects with Dennis Pitta for a 12-yard gain. That pass gets Flacco over the 30,000-yard mark for his career. that's pretty good. 

1:47 p.m. - The second quarter begins with the Ravens facing another long third down. The Ravens held another early lead. They've pilfered early leads in their last two games. But Kamar Aiken comes up big with a 20-yard catch on third-and-19. 

FIRST QUARTER: Ravens 10, Jets 7

1:45 p.m. - And the first quarter ends with Joe Flacco getting hit hard by Mohammed Wilkerson, the first sack of the game. The Ravens are without Ronnie Stanley and Marshal Yanda. The Jets are now carrying all the momentum.

1:42 p.m. - And just like that, the Jets are on the board. Geno Smith hooks up with Quincy Enunwa, who puts on the burners and torches the Ravens' secondary for a 69-yard TD. It's the longest play of the year for the JEts, and their first offensive touchdown since Week 5. Ravens lead 10-7.


1:38 p.m. - Jets continue to drive. Geno Smith is 2-of-6 for 19 yards. Not flashy, but he's not making mistakes thus far. 

1:28 p.m. - Ravens get the ball after a Jets punt, and Joe Flacco finds Mike Wallace on a 57-yard bomb. The Ravens have opened up the pass attack in recent weeks. They are looking to hit the big shot (Or get a PI call). It's working early against the Jets. 

1:25 p.m. - Jets center Nick Mangold is down on the field. Hard to tell what the injury was. Mangold now off the field after some help from team staff. That is a huge loss foran already banged up Jets offense. 

1:15 p.m. - RAVENS TOUCHDOWN! The Jets punter Lachlan Edwards botches the snap, and the Ravens defense pounces on the ball, picking it up in the end zone. Reserve WR Chis Moore is there for the TD. Good guys lead 7-0. 


1:12 p.m. - Terrance West is up on the sidelines, working on the ankle. He could return next series. But still, something to monitor. West has rushed for 295 yards and three touchdowns over the past three games. 

1:10 p.m. - Terrance West is getting taped up on the sidelines. This is something to keep an eye on. 

1:07 p.m. - Ravens open with a run, then a short pass for first down> Flacco then looks deep, but over throws his target. Ravens go back to the ground, and Kenneth Dixon can't pick up any yardage. Ravens pass on third-and-10, and it falls incomplete. Ravens will punt. The Ravens called a timeout before the punt. That's weird. 

1:01 p.m. - The Jets win the toss and defer. The Ravens will get the ball to start. Look for a heavy dose of the run game today, what with Joe Flacco nursing a sore shoulder and Terrance West playing strong in the last two games. 


12:45 p.m. - Speaking of Geno Smith: Do you need some last-minute daily fantasy help? Our fantasy expert ben Standig has you covered, and although the Jets aren't great, Geno Smith might be worth a value-play. Seriously. 

12:25 p.m. - Oh that's right. Marshal Yanda is out too. Joe Flacco is going to need to protect that shoulder of his.

12:20 p.m. - Joe Flacco is looking healthy during warmups. 

12:10 p.m. - The Jets turn to Geno Smith at the quarterback for Week 7. Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled in the first six games, throwing a NFL-high 11 interceptions, which is three more than the second-most (8). The Ravens defense has not been an issue in the first six games. Despite not having Terrell Suggs on Sunday, the Ravens should be able to feast on Smith and the Jets' offense.

11:55 a.m. - The Ravens list of inactive players for Week 7 is in. Joe Flacco is starting, which is good news. The bad news? Ronnie Stanley and Terrell Suggs aren't in uniform.

Ravens sign Michael Crabtree to three-year deal

Ravens sign Michael Crabtree to three-year deal

The Baltimore Ravens have signed wide receiver Michael Crabtree to a three-year deal on Friday according to general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome.

The deal is apparently worth $21 million, according to Adam Schefter.

After being released by the Raiders on Thursday following the signing of Jordy Nelson, Crabtree heads to the Ravens less than 24 hours later.


The 31-year-old is coming off a 2017 season when he recorded 58 receptions for 618 yards and eight touchdowns. In 2016 he posted 89 receptions for 1,003 yards and eight touchdowns.

Since 2015, the Texas Tech product has scored 25 receiving touchdowns, the fifth-most in the NFL. Crabtree and Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown are the only NFL players to post at least eight touchdown catches in each of the past three seasons.


In all, Crabtree has played nine NFL seasons – six of them with San Francisco (2009-14) and three with Oakland (2015-17). The former first-round draft pick (10th overall, Texas Tech) has registered 579 receptions for 6,870 yards (11.9 avg.) and 51 touchdowns in 125 career games (122 starts).

“Michael has played very well against the Ravens, so we know firsthand the attributes he brings to the game,” Newsome said in a team statement. “He is a smart, tough, physical receiver who battles for the ball. We like his temperament and believe he is a good fit for our football team, on and off the field.”

Since he entered the NFL in 2009, Crabtree’s 51 receiving scores rank 10th among active wide receivers, while his receptions (579) are seventh, and his receiving yards (6,870) are 12th.

Ryan Grant's health issue and why the Ravens couldn't control voiding his contract

Ryan Grant's health issue and why the Ravens couldn't control voiding his contract

The most obvious move in the NFL this offseason was the Ravens signing a new wide receiver (or three). It was less obvious why the team decided to commit so much money to former Redskins receiver Ryan Grant.

Grant has long been beloved by his coaches and teammates, but the results have never been there on game day. He has some potential to improve if given a larger role in a team's offense, which he likely would have had in Baltimore, but it never made much sense to offer him a 4-year contract worth nearly 30 million, with $14.5 million guaranteed.

Thankfully for fans who were uninspired by the reported agreement, Grant was unable to pass his physical and will not be joining the team.


At a press conference Friday morning, GM Ozzie Newsome called the void a "medical decision" that Newsome had no control over. 

NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Grant is recovering from a Grade 2 sprained ankle that would need two months rest.

You have to feel for Grant, who by all accounts has worked his tail off for many years just waiting for his chance. It's never easy missing out on nearly $15 million dollars guaranteed, but Grant should be able to find work with another team.

The timing of this news, coming so soon after former Raider Michael Crabtree became available, seemed fishy to some.

At Friday's press conference, Newsome also said the team would have still pursued Crabtree if they signed Grant. 

It's probably not fair to suggest that an NFL franchise would actually so publicly back out of a deal just because another option came along, as any team with that reputation would struggle to attract future free agents. That said, it could end up working out splendidly for the team.

Besides, if all else is equal, shouldn't a team located in Baltimore be going after a guy named CRABtree?
