A year after winning the Super Bowl, the Baltimore Ravens missed the playoffs last season.

The Ravens tried to sure up their defense in the draft, using their first three picks on C.J. Mosley, Timmy Jernigan and Terrence Brooks.

They used free agency to sure up their offense, signing long-time Carolina Panthers’ wide receiver Steve Smith.

On Saturday night, the Washington Redskins made the short trip to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. During the second quarter, Joe Flacco found Smith for a fantastic 24-yard touchdown.
