Week 5: Redskins vs. Ravens Live Blog
4:14 p.m.: That was the same fourth down play the Ravens ran against the Raiders, and Kamar Aiken was the one walloped. But man, what about the Redskins? A tale of two halves. They looked brutal in the first half, but stabilized the offense in the second half. They got some help too. The Ravens abandoned the run for the most part in the second half and their game plan became very predictable.
4:12 p.m.: Flacco goes over the middle on fourth down, but Mike Wallace is WALLOPED by the secondary and can't hold on to it. The Redskins will win this thing.
4:10 p.m.: Third-and-7. Flacco flushed from the pocket. Heaves it to the end zone, looks like some extracurricular activity. To fourth down we go.
4:06 p.m.: The receiver got one foot down. Incomplete pass. WOW.
4:04 p.m.: The ruling on the field is a TD, but they are going to review this. The drama. Oh my.
Looks like the right foot never hits. pic.twitter.com/bTu7hI6Ynp— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) October 9, 2016
4:03 p.m.: AND ON THE VERY NEXT PLAY, FLACCO DROPS A DIME TO PERRIMAN. WHAT A TOUCHDOWN THROW AND CATCH.
4:02 p.m.: Did Wallace make the catch? The referees review it. Ruling on the previous play stands as called. Ravens keep moving.
3:58 p.m.: Joe Flacco: savvy veteran. Another dump pass to Mike Wallace. You know what time it is? HIT THE MUSIC!
3:55 p.m.: After the fourth down conversion, Flacco starts dinking and dumping. Two consecutive short passes to fullback Kyle Juszczyk and the Ravens are moving.
3:52 p.m.: The Ravens have to go for it on fourth down. Joe "Footsteps" Flacco scrambles out of the pocket, and somehow finds a seam. The Ravens pick up a huge first down with under two minutes left.
3:45 p.m.: Redskins and Ravens trade field position. Cousins and Flacco have tried taking shots down field, but neither his been terribly accurate.
3:33 p.m.: The Ravens offense is officially anemic. Just look at this. Woof.
3:30 p.m.: Chris Baker just demolished one of his coaches. OUCH.
3:23 p.m.: Ravens start the fourth quarter on the ground with Buck Allen. It may eat up some clock, but they're only one TD away from regaining the lead.
THIRD QUARTER: Redskins 16, Ravens 10
3:21 p.m.: Another HUGE run from Terrance West. Makes two Redskins defenders whiff. The Ravens would be wise to load up on the run and come back with play-action. It worked in the first quarter.
3:17 p.m.: The 11-play, 72-yard drive ends with a Dustin Hopkins field goal. Redskins now lead 16-10. They didn't get a lot of red zone looks, but if they fall short in the end, look back to this drive. Gotta get seven when you can.
Total offense in third quarter: Redskins 138. Ravens 5 #RavensTalk— Bo Smolka (@bsmolka) October 9, 2016
3:15 p.m.: That bizarre turn of events seems to have given the Redskins' offense some life. A couple of good runs from Matt Jones gets the Redskins moving, and Cousins threads the needle to Pierre Garcon for a first down.
3:11 p.m.: That play ends up being a 17-yard gain for the Redskins. Bizarre.
C.J. Mosley reached for the goal line on an interception return and ended up fumbling through the end zone for a touchback pic.twitter.com/RvKWgkkyhj— Mike Tunison (@xmasape) October 9, 2016
3:10 p.m.: Uh oh. Cousins looks down the middle and throws a pick. C.J. Mosely takes it to the house, but fumbles at the goal line. The ball goes into the end zone and is ruled a touchback. The Redskins get the ball. That is weird.
Cousins: here's a pick six— Danny (@recordsANDradio) October 9, 2016

3:08 p.m.: Ravens punter Sam Koch has been on-point today. His punt lands at the ten-yard line and settles at the goal line.
3:06 p.m.: The Ravens have almost completely abandoned the run game and the Redskins' secondary is keying in on it. This looks like the Ravens' offense that was unable to make big plays in the three previous weeks. Trent Murphy again in on the play. A bit of booing from the M&T Bank Stadium fans.
3:00 p.m.: Finally, a perfect throw from Kirk Cousins. Pierre Garcon finds some room behind Jimmy Smith and finds the end zone. The extra point from Hopkins is good and the Redskins lead 13-10.
Great play call on that - Reed underneath caused the CB to hesitate and a great ball to Garçon— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) October 9, 2016
2:59 p.m.: Third Redskins sack of the day comes from Trent Murphy, who is having himself a strong start to the season. Ravens forced to punt.
2:50 p.m.: Kirk Cousins goes deep to Pierre garcon, but can't find him. The Ravens continue to make Cousins rush his throws. Another third down coming up. The Redskins are 2-for-6 on third down today. Cousins finds Jordan Reed, but he's a few yards short.
2:48 p.m.: The third quarter is underway. Aaaaand Steve Smith Sr. is out for the rest of the game. That is less than ideal.
1Q: Gilmore 7 pass from Flacco (Tucker kick): Drive: 9 plays, 75 yards, 4:47
— Drive summary: The Ravens moved quickly into Redskins territory, getting a first down on a pass from Joe Flacco to Mike Wallace and then getting a big chunk, 35 yards on a Terrance West run off of the right side of the Washington defense. They then moved to first and goal with another third-down pass to Wallace. On the next play Flacco fired a pass to tight end Crockett Gilmore for the touchdown.
— Ravens 7, Redskins 0 10:13
1Q: Punt return 85 Crowder (kick failed): Drive: --
— Drive summary: Crowder fielded the 45-yard punt, busted it up the middle, emerged from the crowd, broke a tackle, and took it to the house for the Redskins’ first punt return for a TD since 2008 when Santana Moss did it.
— Ravens 7, Redskins 6 4:52
2Q: FG Tucker 31: Drive: 12 plays, 71 yards, 4:56
— Drive summary: The Ravens got a couple of flags to get the drive into Redskins territory. One was a seven-yard pass interference on Duke Ihenacho. The next one was big, 31 yards on a questionable pass interference on Will Compton, a flag that converted a third and 10. Terrance West then ran twice for a total of 15 yards. The drive stalled and Tucker came in for the field goal.
— Ravens 10, Redskins 6 14:56
SECOND QUARTER: Ravens 10, Redskins 6
2:30 p.m.: The first half ends with Ryan Kerrigan sacking Joe Flacco. That's the 50th sack of Kerrigan's career.
2:28 p.m.: Dustin Hopkins attempts a 56-yard field goal with three seconds left. It has the right line, but the wind eats it up. Ravens take over.
2:22 p.m.: Coming up at halftime, head over to CSNMA's Facebook to join Sebastian Salazar and Santana Moss. They will be analyzing the first half and taking your questions.
2:19 p.m.: The Redskins go for it on fourth-and-1 against the best run defense in the NFL. matt Jones runs up the middle for no gain. Ravens take over. The Redskins have zero identity on offense thus far.
2:15 p.m.: Kirk Cousins doesn't have a lot of time in the pocket to throw, and it has showed. He doesn't look rattled, but he doesn't exactly looked comfortable. Yet another pass on third down results in an incompletion.
2:10 p.m.: Welp.
Total yards: Ravens 181, Redskins 33. First downs: Ravens 11, Redskins. Yet somehow just 10-6 game. #RavensTalk— Bo Smolka (@bsmolka) October 9, 2016
2:06 p.m.: FAKE FIELD GOAL?!?! Justin Tucker, the best kicker in the NFL, rolls out and looks for Crockett Gillmore near the end zone. Tucker, sadly, is not a QB, and hits Duke Ihenacho in the helmet. Three points woulda been nice there.
We're wondering the same thing, Rob. The same thing.
2:01 p.m.: Matt Jones fumbles the ball and the Ravens recover. Jones had balls ecurity issues last season, and it continues today. Other than kick/punt returns, the Redskins have looked pretty awful thus far. What do you think? Leave your comments below!
2:00 p.m.: With Josh Norman out, the Ravens are attacking the secondary, which is working, but they've forgotten that the Redskins struggle against the run, and the Ravens have done a solid job on the ground thus far. Ravens' drive ends in a punt. No return for the Redskins, which is a win for the Ravens.
1:53 p.m.: The Redskins continue to struggle on third down. They are forced to punt after Kirk Cousins takes a sack from Terrell Suggs. That is the fourth sack for Suggs this season.
1:45 p.m.: Will Blackmon makes something out of nothing on the kickoff, returning it for 46 yards. Redskins' special teams doing it's job.
1:42 p.m.: Ravens start the second quarter and kick a field goal, becuase Justin Tucker is very good at kicking field goals. 10-6 Ravens.
FIRST QUARTER: Ravens 7, Redskins 6
1:35 p.m.: Breshad Perriman gets past Josh Norman for a slight gain near the goal line and now Norman is down on the field and injured. It looks like he landed really hard on his right arm/wrist/hand. He is in a lot of pain. It looks like he got his arm trapped underneath Perriman. Norman is up and walking arond on the sidelines. In other news, Steve Smith Sr. is headed to the locker room. His right ankle got rolled up on the previous series.

1:30 p.m.: But the Ravens still lead 7-6. Why? Becuase the wind took Dustin Hopkins' extra point for a ride.
the wind is a little bit of an issue today pic.twitter.com/6ZrLAYOlz2— Danny (@recordsANDradio) October 9, 2016
1:25 p.m.: Crowder found a good hole up the middle, and had to make a defender miss on two different levels. He did exactly that, then put the afterburners on. He's been arguably the best return man in the NFL season.
1:22 p.m.: JAMISON CROWDER IS A SPEEDY MAN. Redskins score on an 85-yard punt return.
1:10 p.m.: The Redskins gave up 49 yards on the ground and allowed the Ravens to convert on two third downs. This was why.
1:09 p.m.: Ravens move the ball down the field with ease. Way too easy. Flacco goes play-action and finds Crockett Gilmore for the early touchdown. Redskins defense looked to be sleep-walking.
1:06 p.m.: And on the third play of the game, Terrance West breaks off one of the biggest runs of the Ravens' season. The Redskins missed at least three tackles. Ravens are looking to hammer the run early. That will set up big plays from Flacco, Smith, Wallace and Perriman.
1:01 p.m.: Redskins win the toss and defer.
12:55 p.m.: Michael Phelps in da house. He's wearing a Ravens jersey. We think he might be a fan.
We've got a little gold on our side today. 🏅 pic.twitter.com/X4Uh370cef— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) October 9, 2016
12:35 p.m.: Josh Norman is wearing funky pregame socks because "sure, why not?"
12:25 p.m.: I'm torn here. A Ravens' cheerleader was proposed to by her boyfriend before the game. Fans should never AND I MEAN EVER propose to significant others at stadiums and sporting events. But cheerleaders? I dunno. If you think about it, they're getting engaged at work. Ain't nobody wasnts to get married at work.
12:15 p.m.: Chick Hernandez and the rest of our Redskins Kickoff crew is ready to go today. They're on the air RIGHT NOW on CSN.
12:10 p.m. The Redskins are going with the burgundy pants and white tops, which hopefully means the yellow pants are a thing of the past. (#NoMoreYellowPants) As for the Ravens, Joe Flacco is wearing pink shoes for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
11:55 a.m.: Ravens inactives are in ... err ... out: Shareece Wright and Ronnie Stanley are out, which is less than ideal.
11:50 a.m.: Inactives are out: First, for the Redskins: Breeland is out, which we knew about. Su'a Cravens is inactive too, which is a bummer.
11:30 a.m.: REMINDER: Remember to set your fantasy lineups. Take a look at our Week 5 fantasy football position by position rankings if you need advice. I forgot to set my lineup last week. I wound up losing by 8pts. I had 16.7pts sitting on the bench.
11:10 a.m.: If you're looking for betting odds, or Against the Spread stats, I cobbled together some words. There's also a good preview of the Redskins vs. Ravens game in there too.
1045 a.m.: What are the five major questions the Ravens need to answer today? Narrowing it down to five was difficult. We know the Ravens are pretty good. But there is still a lot to unpack here.
10:30 a.m.: JP Finlay dropped some pregame knowledge about the matchup. Josh Norman vs. Steve Smith is the matchup everyone is watching for, but the battle between the Redskins front seven and the Ravens offensive line is going to impact the game a lot more.
