The Baltimore Ravens have reacted to back-to-back defeats by dismissing offensive co-ordinator Cam Cameron.

The team made the announcement of Cameron's departure on Monday less than 24 hours after they had slipped to a 31-28 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins on the road.

Quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell has been promoted to take charge of the offence, including play-calling duties, ahead of facing the Denver Broncos in week 15.

"My charge - our responsibility as a coaching staff - is to maximise the opportunities for our team to win, and we can still reach all of our goals for this season," Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh said on the franchise's official website.

"With our coaches and players, the solution is in the building. We are going to make the most of our opportunities going forward, and this change gives us a better possibility to achieve our goals."

The Ravens' offence currently ranks 18th in the NFL, with 344.4 yards per game, under the stewardship of former Miami Dolphins head coach Cameron, who had been in charge since 2008.

Caldwell was appointed by Baltimore at the start of the season to help develop their current starter under centre, Joe Flacco.

He had previously worked for Indianapolis, including being quarterbacks coach to Peyton Manning. He also had three seasons as head coach of the Colts before being fired after a 2-14 campaign last year.

Despite losing to both Pittsburgh and Washington in recent weeks, the Ravens still lead the AFC North with a 9-4 record.
