John Harbaugh deserved to win the NFL’s Coach of the Year award. He took his team on a 14 win season, that Baltimore had never seen before. He allowed Lamar Jackson to do his thing and his coaching staff worked with it beautifully. While Harbaugh deserves a ton of credit for getting the Ravens the number one seed, he also deserves a heavy dose of the blame for the loss in the postseason.
The playoff game never had to get out of hand. The Ravens trailed 14-6 at halftime. The Ravens acted like they were down 30-10.
