Last year was expected to be one of revel for the Ravens. This past season was the twentieth in the history of the franchise since relocating to Baltimore; plus, the team has been paying tribute to the illustrious players as the years went on. Baltimore has been a team that has relished success – lots of it – in two decades, topped by 2 Super Bowl triumphs. Starting the 2015 season, a lot of people believed that the Ravens would make it to January 2016.
But No. A string of injuries turned the franchise’s season in the reverse direction. As of October 2015, the Ravens were at 3-7; no spot at the playoffs. Whichever hopes that were there of reversing the result then, and at least contend for a wild card, were dead.
Baltimore was a lot of people’s pre-season Super Bowl team of choice, which seemed insane as of last October; it was not so 8 weeks earlier. Baltimore was coming off a prosperous 2014 season, where several delicate Patriots formations plus an unconventional duple pass were what it took to deny the Ravens a playoff spot. The Ravens further added several offense playmakers, and it appeared as if Joe Flacco and company were preparing themselves for giving the Super Bowl another go.
In the Rams game, things worsened. Although the Ravens won by 16-13, two key players – quarterback Joe Flacco and Justin Forsett, the lead running back – picked up severe injuries. Flacco’s ACL injury cost him the remainder of the season, whereas Forsett broke his arm and got ruled out, just like Flacco. It was the first time the quarterback missed a game since his 2008 drafting by Baltimore; career-wise, Flacco has been a starter in 122 consecutive matches, the 5th longest stretch in the history of the NFL. Lead rusher Forsett, on the other hand, concluded with 2 touchdowns, a yardage per carry of 4.2, and a 641-yard total.
The Ravens could have turned the 2015 season around, had they been healthy.
