Did that really just happen?

It happened in Week 2 against the Titans, but it couldn't possibly happen again tonight, could it?

Not facing a one-win Jaguars team, not on "Monday Night Football" with the whole country watching.

Whoops.

Two road games against AFC South opponents, two excruciatingly frustrating and surprising losses.

The Ravens laid an absolute egg on national television, putting up just 146 total yards of total offense and managing just one scoring drive in a 12-7 loss to Jacksonville.

Baltimore didn't record a first down until nearly 40 minutes into the game, they had 16 total yards of offense in the first half, and rushed for just 34 yards through a full four quarters.

You can try and point the finger at one player if you'd like to, but this was a complete offensive stinker.

Joe Flacco was out of sync nearly the entire game, his offensive line again struggled to keep him upright, and the Ravens' receivers failed to get open against a tenacious Jaguars secondary.

To make matters worse, Ray Rice put the ball on the ground for the first time in 522 regular season carries and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was unable to do anything from a playcalling standpoint to get the unit jumpstarted.

Just like that, the Ravens went from a team that was in the discussion for the "Best in the AFC" label to a team that has a multitude of questions to answer.

Baltimore drops to 4-2 on the season, and will face the Cardinals next Sunday.
