NFL Refs Once Again Embarrass League With Blown Calls in Chargers-Ravens


The Los Angeles Chargers sure looked like a team that is built for the playoffs in their 23-17 win at the Baltimore Ravens over the weekend. The Ravens' two touchdown drives came with about 6:30 left in the game (8 plays, 75 yards) and two minutes left in the game (12 plays, 80 yards), which allowed them to get within six points of the Chargers.

The chants came after the Chargers scored a touchdown and then converted a two-point attempt to go up three possessions.

Two unnamed National Football League teams are "strongly considering" trading for Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. I'm not from too far up the road [in suburban Philadelphia and the University of Delaware]. We'll see who's right about the match-up when the Chargers and Ravens square off at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. As Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said after the game, that type of offense is easier to defend against when facing it multiple times.

Though Williams, 38, is not the player she used to be, beating her is still an awesome accomplishment for Andreescu. Including qualifying, Andreescu has now played seven matches to just four for Goerges to reach the final.

"The ball-handling in an offense like this is the thing", Harbaugh said. This is a guy who played on a torn ACL in the 2007 AFC Championship Game, also a cold game in Foxboro (it was 23 degrees at game time).

The Ravens fumbled three times during their first eight offensive plays, losing the last one by Kenneth Dixon on a tackle by Melvin Ingram at the Baltimore 15 to set up Los Angeles' first field goal. "It's definitely a group of fans and a community that I loved to be around for 11 years".

The Undefeated's Jerry Bembry wrote about Newsome and his impact on the Ravens, and I encourage you to give it a read. It doesn't seem likely that Baltimore will make a big splash in free agency at this position but chances are there will be a new face or two in the backfield picture by the time training camp opens. The Chargers converted just three of 10 third downs. After Sunday's game, Harbaugh was optimistic about Jackson lowering his fumbles. New England won by the score of 21-13 in a shootout.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey yet to sign Juventus pre-contract agreement?
Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff in 2008 and has won the FA Cup on three occasions - scoring the decisive goal in two finals. Ramsey has made 14 starts and 11 substitute appearances in all competitions this season.

Given his experience, Flacco offered some advice to Jackson in the second half.

But those playoff wins over Rivers and the Chargers were from yesteryear, back when they called San Diego their home. In the aftermath of the game, the main question posed by Ravens fans and media alike has centered on whether Jackson should have been in the game at all after the first half.

I have a very good view on our players, what I can expect from them and what I don't see. I have to try to improve my players in the offensive phase.
