Trailing 16-13 midway through the fourth, Baltimore's defense could do nothing as Tennessee waltzed down the field on a nine-play, 75-yard touchdown drive that put any realistic hopes of a Ravens comeback on ice.
"You want to give your offense a chance to win the game or tie the game, and we did the one thing you can't do -- give up points," said pass-rusher Terrell Suggs. "It's like we played pretty solid up until that drive. I don't know what happened, it's just very unfortunate."
Added Suggs: "We expect to play lights out every week. We got a bye week, then seven left. We better get the [stuff] fixed or we're going to be on the outside looking in again."
Especially with the way this wanting, depleted Ravens offense has looked all season long. Suggs is right, if this is a playoff team at heart, it's one that must win with defense week after week after week.
On Sunday, in a big spot, it wasn't enough.
