Harbaugh deflects criticism of Ravens OC

John Harbaugh has twice fired offensive coordinators midseason as the Ravens' head coach, but he defended current coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, despite Baltimore's struggling offense.

John Harbaugh says embattled offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is a 'great coach'

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on the five drops by the receivers on Sunday: "Catching the ball, to me, is a prerequisite. Your job is to catch the ball. That's it."

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg: "Trying to put the blame on one person in a team game is a mistake. It's nonsensical." Baltimore ranks 29th in yards per game (289.2) and 30th in offensive points per game (15.3).

Ravens safety Eric Weddle on the 27-24 loss to the Bears and his critical missed tackle in overtime: "Honestly, we had no business being in that game the way we played as a team. It's just unfortunate that we didn't capitalize once we got them off the field in overtime and I have to make that tackle. That's the deciding play. That's why we lost."

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Baltimore's run defense hit rock bottom in overtime loss to Bears. The Ravens allowed 231 yards rushing -- the most in the franchise's 22-year history. Baltimore has to be counting the days when defensive tackle Brandon Williams returns from a foot injury.


Bears beat Ravens 27-24 in OT

Connor Barth kicked a 40-yard field goal with 2:08 left in overtime, and the Chicago Bears used a 167-yard rushing effort by Jordan Howard to beat the Baltimore Ravens 27-24 on Sunday.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

John Harbaugh's decision to punt on fourth-and-2 from the Ravens' 48-yard line with 5:48 left in overtime cost the Ravens 4.5% in win probability.

Jordan Howard finishes with 167 yards rushing on 36 carries (4.6 yards per carry) and he also added one reception for nine yards. Monster workload for the Bears RB. And Howard's 53 yard run in OT set up the game-winning field goal in Baltimore.

Amos comes up with pick-6 for Bears (0:44)

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

A heads-up play by Bobby Rainey in his first Ravens game. His 96-yard kickoff return for a touchdown -- the sixth-longest in franchise history -- was the result of Rainey getting up from the ground at the 25-yard line after not getting touched by the Bears and racing to the end zone. This is the momentum-changing play Baltimore needed with the offense struggling.

Brandon Williams effect: Ravens have given up 121 yards rushing without their top run-stuffer and it's only midway through the third quarter. Bears have run the ball on 34 of 46 plays, and Ravens' inability to stop Chicago has not put any pressure on rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman (concussion) and tight end Maxx Williams (ankle) are declared out for the game. Both were hurt on plays that ended in turnovers. Perriman and Williams were Baltimore's top two picks in the 2015 draft.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

The Ravens entered today with a 53% chance to reach the playoffs, but that number is already down 37% at halftime. Baltimore trails Chicago at the half and only has a 38% chance to win today after being an 81% favorite before kickoff.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Flacco's first-half stats look awful: 14-of-22 for 94 yards and one interception. But this is more of a reflection of the lack of help he's received. Flacco's receivers are dropping passes and tripping over their own feet in the end zone. With Jeremy Maclin inactive and Breshad Perriman hurt, Flacco is going to need someone to step up to make plays from a wide receiver group that consists of Mike Wallace, Michael Campanaro, Chris Moore and Chris Matthews.
