Baltimore Ravens report card versus Indy

Quarterback– Joe Flacco passed more than in recent weeks and at times just picked Indy’s defense apart. He threw two touchdowns and one interception. Flacco finished the game with a 102.5 quarterback rating. Grade B+

Running backs– Ray Rice may not have rushed for 200 yards again but he was still very good, running for 103 yards. Rice also had six receptions for 46 yards. Ricky Williams was less effective running the ball with only 13 yards on seven carries. Grade B+

Receivers– Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith both had good games. Smith had a touchdown and five receptions along with a 16 yard run. Dennis Pitta also had three receptions and a touchdown. Grade B

Offensive line– They protected Flacco well for the most part but got beaten in some one on one situations. They allowed two sacks, both coming from Dwight Freeney. They did well opening up wholes in the run game. Grade B

Defensive line
– Another great performance from this group. Terrell Suggs had three sacks and stripped the ball out on each one. Cory Redding also added a sack and five tackles. This whole group is really playing well together. Grade A+

– Jameel McClain has played great with the absence of Ray Lewis, he led the team in tackles with eight. Indy only had 50 total yards on the ground. Grade A

Secondary– This group was not tested much because the Ravens had tons of pressure on Indy quarterback Dan Orlovsky. They only gave up 136 yards in the air and had an interception from Bernald Pollard. Grade A

Special Teams– Billy Cundiff was hurt but still hit all his extra points and his one field goal. They allowed one big 51-yard return but that was because of a short kickoff. Sam Koch was solid as usual. Grade B

Coaching Staff
– Cam Cameron could have really put Indy away but decided to play conservatively once the game got close to the fourth quarter. The entire team seemed to just out power Indy. Grade B+
