I don’t usually write about other teams on this website, but this is an exception. The only thing that makes me happier than a Steelers win is a Ravens loss. And when the Ravens get absolutely demolished, well that’s even better than sex.
That is exactly what happened when the Ravens played the Giants. The Giants trounced the Ravens 30-10. The Ravens’ vaunted defense got trampled for 207 rushing yards. That’s right, 207 yards!!! Hahaha, way to go, Ravens. The Giants averaged 6.3 yards per carry against the defense that was #1 in the NFL against the run. In this game that pitted two blue collar teams, the Giants were the hammer, and the Ravens were the nail.
By the way, this is the same Giants offense that met with utter futility when trying to run against the Steelers. Remember how the Steelers repeatedly stuffed the Giants’ run on short yardage situations? Well, that is exactly what the Ravens were unable to do to the Giants. I’ve always felt that the Steelers’ defense was much better than the Ravens, and this game just cemented that belief for me.
The best part of the entire game was watching Ray Lewis get faked out of his shoes by Ahmad Bradshaw, and then watching Bradshaw run the ball 77 yards while Lewis half-heartedly pursued the play. Good effort, Ray. You just cost your team 77 yards.
I hope the NFL Network airs this game again. I think I’ll enjoy watching this one even more the second time around.
