Not a pretty sight.

How else to describe the handiwork of Baltimore's offense in a decisive 24-16 loss to the Vikings that didn't look as close as the score?

Once again, quarterback Joe Flacco found himself short-handed and running for his life, left with just Michael Campanaro and a back-from-the-wilderness Griff Whalen at receiver after Mike Wallace left with concussion concerns.

It showed, as Flacco threw for just 51 yards in the first half and 186 on the day for a Ravens attack that generated a ridiculous 3.3 yards per play.

"It just is what it is," Flacco said after the game, per the team's official website. "It obviously isn't the best situation, but we have to make it work."

Yes, this Vikings defense looks like a Super Bowl-level collection of players, but the Ravens couldn't put up a fight with wideouts Jeremy Maclin, Breshad Perriman and Chris Matthews all nursing injuries.
