We're through the first 15 minutes of this one and the Ravens and Falcons are tied 0-0.
The first quarter looked a lot like a boxing match where the fighters spend the first round mostly feeling each other out and trying to get a read on one another.
Each offense moved the ball a bit, but neither team has taken many shots.
The Falcons looked fine letting Roddy White pick on cornerback Lardarius Webb on the outside (apparently Fabian Washington isn't the only Baltimore cornerback who can get burned these days), while the Ravens had a little success giving Ray Rice the ball on a delay and letting him find space between the tackles.
Joe Flacco looked a little uncomfortable in the first quarter, jumping around in the pocket and trying to avoid pressure.
It almost looks like the Flacco we've seen in the playoffs in the past two years, where he appears unsure of what he's seeing down the field and is more than happy dumping the ball off short or trying to get out of the pocket and create something on the fly.
The offensive line needs to give Flacco more time to let his routes develop, but Flacco needs to settle in and go through his progressions. If the dump-off to Rice is the best option, that's fine, but it shouldn't be what the Ravens' quarterback looks for the second he hears footsteps on any given play.
Oh, and a note for fullback Le'Ron McClain - stop dancing around any time you get the ball in your hands.
You're not Ray Rice. Run north-south and get what yardage you can.
