The Baltimore Ravens’ season ended with loud roaring thud, as they dropped their regular season finale to the Cincinati Bengals, 34-17. It was not pretty. In the first quarter, the Ravens had two great opportunities to jump out to at least a two-touchdown lead on the strength of two interceptions, but instead they had to settle for two Justin Tucker field goals. The lead was soon relinquished when Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton hit wide-receiver A. J. Green for a 53 yard touchdown. The Ravens later tied the game at 17-17 in the second half, but could score no more, as the Bengals hung 17 more points on the board, resulting in the final margin of victory. Joe Flacco didn’t help matters much, as he threw 3 interceptions. The Ravens have a 3 and 14 record in games in which Flacco throws 2 or more interceptions. He threw a career high of 22 interceptions for the season. Prior to the season, Flacco had signed a six year contract for a whopping $120,000,000. Although Flacco played behind a substandard offensive line throughout the season, the team had reason to expect much better production from the quarterback position.
