The Baltimore Ravens high-powered offense has taken a step back from last season and the team’s starting quarterback provided one possible reason why.
During an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show, the 2019 NFL MVP winner said he can hear defenses calling out Baltimore’s plays once both sides get set at the line of scrimmage:
“They’re calling out our plays, stuff like that,” Jackson said. “They know what we’re doing. Sometimes stuff won’t go our way if they’re beating us to the punch.”
When pressed by Eisen, Jackson admitted that defenses are calling their plays:
“Yeah, they definitely do,” Jackson said. “Like, ‘run’ and stuff like that. ‘Watch out for this, watch out for that.’ Sometimes that’s what’s going on.”
The Ravens currently sit at 6-2 and in the driver seat for a return to the postseason but one thing is clear, their offense is not the same as it was a year ago.
