John Harbaugh says Ravens’ issues on defense are ‘going to get fixed’
After starting off 2-0 by defeating two of the worst teams in the league, the Ravens have dropped their last two games with a defense that has looked questionable. Baltimore had a dominate defense last year and it was a big reason why they were able to reach the postseason.
In their two losses the Ravens have allowed more than 500 yards in those contests, a recipe that will not lead to victories no matter how well the offense is playing.
Per Matthew Stevens of the Ravens Wire, Harbaugh doesn’t seem to think his defense lacks the ability to stop the opposing offense. He said this:
“You just need to do your job, be in your right spot and play football.”
With the addition of safety Earl Thomas this last offseason, the Ravens were looking to him in order to sure up their secondary. While Thomas has snagged his first interception as a member of the Ravens, he and the rest of that unit will need to step up their game. They can’t allow for another quarterback to torch them and throw for over 300 yards once again.
Their next matchup will be against the Steelers who are in the midst of putting a hurt on the Bengals, but the Ravens will hope that their defense can make a statement against a division opponent.
