Five thoughts on the Ravens’ shocking 42-38 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2 at M&T Bank Stadium:

This one stings, but it’s just Week 2.

Just a bad, brutal, gut-wrenching, add-your-negative-adjective-here loss. Baltimore had a 21-point lead entering the fourth quarter and squandered it. They gave up 28 points in the fourth quarter. It’s one of the biggest meltdowns in Ravens history. On a day that should have culminated with a celebration of Lamar Jackson’s brilliance, the Ravens were left scorched by Miami’s air raid from Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

The bad news is the Dolphins are probably going to be in the AFC playoff chase when all is said and done. Have to hope the Ravens don’t end up kicking themselves looking back on the Week 2 win that slipped through their fingers. In an ultra-competitive NFL, you have to win the games you should. Entering the game, this was essentially a toss-up between two talented teams. But with a 21-point lead in the fourth quarter, it’s absolutely one that should have sent the Ravens and fans home smiling.

The good news is it’s Week 2. There have been countless “sky is falling” moments in years past and the Ravens have been just fine. How about the 34-20 loss to the Chiefs in Week 3 of 2020? Or the 40-25 loss to the Browns in Week 4 of 2019? Both seasons ended with the Ravens in the playoffs. As Head Coach John Harbaugh said, the Ravens will be defined by how they rebound, not by a Week 2 loss. Maybe it stings more now, but it’s better than getting destroyed and having a million issues. Coming out of this, two items are clearly at the top of the fix-it list: the run game and secondary breakdowns. Those can be fixed, and I expect they will be.
