Lack Of 'Big Plays' Hindering Ravens Offense


By Bo Smolka, PRESSBOX

Wide receiver Mike Wallace didn't hesitate when asked what the Ravens' offense needs to do to snap out of a season-long funk when they return from their bye week.

"Big plays," Wallace said Nov. 7 as the team prepared for a four-day weekend. "We need to make big plays. We move the ball down the field pretty well, but we just need those big plays, like far touchdowns, 50-, 60-yard touchdowns. We have the guys to do it. We have a lot of players on the field who can get it done."

Big plays have been few and far between for the Ravens (4-5), who rank 31st in the league in passing offense (165.7 yards per game) and last in passing yards per play (4.56). They also rank last in the league with 10 pass plays of 20 yards or more.
