The Baltimore Ravens entered the season with Super Bowl aspirations, and they still have them, but the team has stumbled out of the gate to a 3-3 start. Not only are they losing more games then they expected, but they held double-digit leads in each of their three losses too

Starting quarterback Lamar Jackson is not happy about it, and understandably so.

When asked about it in his Wednesday press conference, Jackson gave a candid response.

We’re pissed off about losing — everyone is. Our fans are pissed off and all of us are pissed off, but at the same time, we can’t dwell on it. We’ve got to move on here and get focused on the Browns. And the young guys, they’re dialed in, as well. Everybody is focusing up. We’re just ready to go out there and put on a show, because we’re so mad — real talk.

That being said, Jackson didn't absolve himself of any blame in this either, and he shouldn't. He has had some key turnovers and delivered some poor play in big moments during these losses as well.

Oh, man, it’s football. Like you said, I’m very competitive, and sometimes things don’t go as planned. Sometimes mistakes happen when you don’t need them to, when you don’t want them to; you’re going to have to live with them. But hopefully, it doesn’t happen again.

Baltimore is too talented of a team to let this level of play continue, and it seems no one in the building, especially Jackson, expects it to.

The Ravens head into a Week 7 matchup with the Cleveland Browns as 6.5-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
