It seemed like Joe Flacco and Torrey Smith hit the ground running right out of the gates this season. Now, Smith has just four catches for 54 yards in the Baltimore Ravens last two games.
So what happened?
According to the Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson, Smith was targeted just 11 times the last two weeks, eight of which came during the Ravens overtime victory over the Chargers.
“I just think its our execution, nothing has changed,” said Smith, who has caught 43 passes for 753 yards and seven touchdowns this season. “We’re getting open. We just have to finish the plays and get it back on track. It’s not like a panic mode or anything.
“It’s just a couple games off. We keep working. More often than not, we hit. We’ve just been off the past two weeks. We’ll get it back.”
As Wilson points out, Smith will be matched up against Pro Bowl corner Champ Bailey this week. It ain’t getting any easier.
