Harbaugh: Cam did a 'great job'

The Ravens'offensive onslaught began immediately in their 44-13 rout of Cincinnati onMonday night.
On the Ravensfirst play from scrimmage, Joe Flacco faked a handoff to Ray Rice and threw a52-yard bomb to Torrey Smith. Later, the Ravens ran a reverse to Smith, andanother to Anquan Boldin. Once Smith andwide receiver Jacoby Jones established that the Ravens would stretch the field,Flacco found his favorite underneath target, Dennis Pitta. Once the end-aroundshelped establish that the Ravens would stretch the field from side to side, Ricefound running room right up the gut.
It was that kindof night for the Ravens offense, which was clicking on all cylinders most ofthe night. The Ravens scored on six of their first seven drives, not counting aone-play, take-a-knee possession to end the first half.There wascertainly enough praise to go around on a night the Ravens showed off theirnew-look offense to a national audience, but coach John Harbaugh wanted to besure that one person got his due: offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.
"Credit tothe offensive coaches," Harbaugh said. "I thought our staff did agreat job. ... Cam will be the first one to take the blame and the last one totake credit, so I'll be standing up here and giving Cam a little credittonight. I thought he did a great job with the play-calling."Granted, therewere some hiccups; a botched double-reverse ended with a fumble and a 10-yardloss. And Flacco was sensational, but at least three passes could have beenintercepted. The mistakes, though, were few and far between, and it seemed theRavens offense was one step ahead of the Bengals defense all night. "They did agood job with their misdirection, play-action," Bengals linebacker ReyMaualuga said. "We just didn't get there in time."Said Flacco:"There were big creases in there for Ray, there were big chunks down thefield for us, so obviously everything went pretty well for us."

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
