Ravens report card versus the Giants: The offense
I have not had time to do much blogging as of late and have not done a report card in a few weeks. Well let’s get right into it.
Quarterbacks: Joe Flacco was sharp the entire game, his final quarterback rating was 114.2. Flacco had two touchdown passes and no interceptions and also had a rushing touchdown. Six different players had receptions from Flacco. The biggest difference was that Flacco had protection and time to throw the ball. Grade A
Running backs: Ray Rice, Bernard Pierce and Anthony Allen all saw action and all contributed. Pierce had a giant (no pun intended) 78-yard run to help end the game, he ended up with a career high 123 yards rushing. Rice also broke 100-yards rushing and contributed with a 27-yard reception for a touchdown. Grade A
Receivers: The receivers played well even though they did not get great separation they too advantage of their match ups. Anquan Boldin had 7 receptions for 93 yards and made some tough catches. Torrey Smith also had a great game scoring a touchdown. Grade B+
Offensive Line: The offensive line had their best game all season. They did not allow a sack and gave Flacco plenty of time. Grade A
