Baltimore Ravens Trap Run Game

The Buffalo Bills face the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium this Sunday. The matchup is shaping up to be a defensive stalemate as both teams appear to have lackluster offenses. 

The Ravens offense under Marty Mornhinweg, will look to use their ground game to get their offense on track. That attack will start with running back Alex Collins, an underrated back who finished 2017 sixth in Pro Football Focus’s (PFF) elusive rating (51.9%). Collins carried the rock 212 times for 973 yards and six touchdowns. Which includes 27 runs of 10+ yards and a whopping average of 2.98 yards after contact.

Collins is a decisive, physical runner, and that is why he fits the Ravens run game so well. While Mornhinweg is the offensive coordinator, former Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman reportedly designs the run game. So it is characterized as being multiple and indeed it is. The Ravens run all types of run concepts but the most effective is their trap game.

The trap series, specifically the inside trap and wham plays are very familiar to Bills fans. We saw it for several years under Roman and Anthony Lynn. It helped the Bills lead the league in rushing from 2015 and 2016. 

So let’s jump into the film room to take a look at what makes the Ravens run game so dangerous and what the Bills will need to do in order to stymie the trap run game.
