We Can Dance if we Want To

The Ravens nearly blew another fourth quarter lead on Sunday against the Bengals but thanks to an Elvis Dumervil strip sack that was recovered by Lawrence Guy and some heads up coaching from John Harbaugh and Special Teams Coordinator Jerry Rosburg, the Ravens escaped with a 19-14 win despite an offense that produced just 101 yards, no third-down conversions and 3 points in the second half.

Fans have shared their opinions through blog comments, social media and message board posts. Some agree with Fouts while others seem ashamed that the Ravens had to “cheat” in order to beat a team with just 3 wins.

For your enjoyment (or dismay), here’s another look at the play…
