The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

BLACK BIRD DOWN

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — Baltimore leads the AFC North with a 7-4 record. Just imagine where they’d be if they knew how to close out games.

The Ravens held at least a two-score lead in all four losses, three of which have featured game-winning scores in the final 15 seconds of regulation.

Week 2: Led the Dolphins 35-14 with 12 minutes left; lost 42-38.

Week 4: Led the Bills 20-3 just before halftime; lost 23-20.

Week 6: Led the Giants 20-10 with six minutes left; lost 24-20.

Week 12: Led the Jaguars 19-10 with six minutes left; lost 28-27.

The good news: The Ravens are averaging 25 points per game and today they play the Broncos, who haven’t scored 25 points in any game all season.
