This may shock you, but some OC's are better than others,
I understand being frustrated by the conservative playcalling, but I'm sure the consensus of the brain trust of Fox and Co. figured that they'd be able to kill more clock, reduce the risk of a turnover pin the Ravens down inside their own 20 perhaps and force them to go about 80 yards.
The defense gave up a 70 yard TD pass....it rarely happens, but it happened to us this time.
