Ravens report card: The defense and special teams 9/7/2014

20140728-154057-56457968.jpgThe Baltimore Ravens lost against the Cincinnati Bengals 23-16. For the report card on the offense go here. (I apologize for having the report card up so late.)

Defensive line: The defensive line played very well but still needed to get more pressure on Andy Dalton.  The Ravens did not record a single sack and only had one tackle for loss. DeAngelo Tyson and Chris Canty were the most impressive on the defensive line. Haloti Ngata only had two tackles and was out of a lot of plays. The defensive line did help shut down the Bengals’ running game, giving up only three yards per carry.  Grade B Read more about Ravens report card: The defense and special teams 9/7/2014
