Ravens running on third-and-long

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Baltimore Ravens aren't showing much confidence in rookie quarterback Joe Flacco.

The Ravens so far have had two possessions against the Tennessee Titans. Twice the Ravens have faced third-and-long situations, and both times they've chosen to run up the middle before punting.

On the second possession, Flacco did complete a 15-yard pass to Derrick Mason on third-and-9, but the play was wiped out by an illegal shift. The Ravens handed off to Willis McGahee for a 4-yard run on third-and-14.
