As a Baltimore Ravens fan, I said to my friends & co-workers that the Tennessee Titans were the nightmare scenario for the team. The Ravens have had problems stopping the run during the year and were facing the best running back in football in Derrick Henry. Turns out I was right as the Tennessee Titans stunned the Baltimore Ravens at home 28-12 in a game that was not as close as the score indicates. Did the team choke in the playoffs for the 2nd year in a row?
You can summarize what happened to the Ravens all you want (see here & here) but, as Coach Harbaugh stated, the Ravens got their butts kicked in the trenches on both sides of the ball. Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey thinks the team choked. The ESPN crew debates this below. I think plain & simply, the Ravens overlooked the Titans who wanted the game more and the Ravens got out-coached on both sides of the ball.
