Joe Flacco took full responsibility for the Ravens’ recent offensive struggles saying that it’s on him to be strong behind his line and make good throws.
It’s your job to stand in the pocket or get out of it and make a play, Flacco told reporters Wednesday (via ESPN). That’s what the league comes down to is the ability to do that when times are tough. Anybody can sit back there and do it when it’s easy, but there’s going to be a handful of situations every game where they’re getting paid too. And when you really make your money and you make your points and prove you’re a good offense is when you’re doing it against tough situations.

The start against the Steelers was a step in the right direction, but the team was able to score only nine points in the loss. The Ravens are tied for last in the NFL with 60 points this season. Flacco is second to last in the league with six interceptions and his 601 passing yards are the fewest among QBs who have started all of their team’s games.
Tampa Bay waived second-year tight end Alan Cross to make room on the 53-man roster for Martin. He’s eligible to begin practice with the team right away and is expected to be at a walk-through practice Monday night.
Martin’s suspension began in the final weekend of the 2016 season after violating the NFL’s drug policy and he was originally expected to be back for their game against the Giants on Sunday. Martin couldn’t return until this week since the Buccaneers were forced to postpone their first game against the Dolphins as a result of Hurricane Irma.
What has gone wrong: The offense 鈥?particularly quarterback Andy Dalton 鈥?was so poor in the first two games that Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis fired coordinator Ken Zampese. The offensive line is still thriving for consistency.
