Canady could be a candidate to end up back on the Ravens' practice squad if he clears waivers. While no team can duplicate what the Ravens do offensively, stopping the run appears to be the weakness of this Patriots defense, and other teams will be looking to exploit that.
The top takeaway is the continued success of Jackson. Jackson responded by reminding Brady that he is the "GOAT", or greatest of all time. Sidestepping and slashing past a defense that stacked the box, he finished with 224 yards of total offense, throwing for 163 yards and rushing for 61. He hauled in 10 of his 14 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown. But the Ravens retook control of the game in the fourth quarter, something you don't usually see against Brady and Bill Belichick. Jackson should have rookie receiver Marquise Brown back in the lineup this week.
WHAT NEEDS HELP - Turnovers are becoming a recurring problem for the Patriots' offense. The Ravens have Super Bowl aspirations and they have to clean up the fumbles to get there.
FS1's Jason Whitlock was a rare commentator to predict the Patriots going down, doing so on Speak For Yourself last week. A 4th and 4 conversion, on a drive that ultimately resulted in a touchdown put the Patriots away. That play was HUGE. He was a menace throughout registering four QB hits despite not collecting a sack.
The Patriots don't have four years to wait, and they don't need it. Going into this game, it was known that while the Patriots had been conquering teams with nearly impossible ease, many of their matchups were against teams which were far from contenders, with many struggling to even win a game. As if to prove it, two plays into the Ravens' next possession, Kyle Van Noy forced a fumble and Lawrence Guy recovered it at the Baltimore 19. Sanu was focused a team-high 14 occasions and recorded 10 catches for 81 yards, in addition to catching Tom Brady's exclusively landing go of the night time. I am backing him.
The coaching staff gets another glowing review.
Unsurprisingly, the Patriots have stormed back.
Brady looked for Jackson after the former Louisville star led the Ravens to a 37-20 win, and he told Jackson he was "playing very well". Greg Roman, Wink Martindale, and Harbaugh deserve all the praise they are receiving this morning. The Ravens were consistently winning at the point of attack.
FiveThirtyEight's predictor model still has New England at 94 percent probability to win its division, 82 percent to get a first-round bye, and a league-leading 21 percent likelihood to win it all.
Thomas and the Ravens will travel to Cincinnati next weekend to face the winless Bengals.
But for today, it feels damn good to be a member of the #RavensFlock.
