The Baltimore Ravens saw their defense collapse in front of their eyes during Week 2 of the 2022 season, blowing a 21-point lead in the fourth quarter en-route to a 42-38 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The defense wasn’t able to keep the Miami offense out of the end zone throughout the fourth quarter, letting wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle behind them for multiple big plays.
Following the contest, on Monday during a segment of ESPN’s “Get Up”former Baltimore defensive coordinator Rex Ryan blasted the Ravens’ defense for their performance, laying into the group and comparing it to back when he was leading the defense.

Baltimore’s defense gave up 569 yards and six touchdowns to Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, seeing the lead they built evaporate. Defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald kept Hill and Waddle in front of his defense early, but disguises and blitzes late were some of the many reasons why the team squandered such a big cushion.
