Ravens report card: Week 6

Quarterback– Joe Flacco looked good while taking a beating against the Houston Texans. It was not pretty and his numbers may not have been great, but he hung in the pocket and made some excellent passes. He did make a few mistakes but so does every quarterback when they are under a lot of pressure. He still complete 20 out of 33 passes. Grade B

Running backs– Ray Rice continues to spark the Baltimore Ravens offense. He had over 100 yards rushing and 60 yards receiving. Ricky Williams had his first touchdown as a Raven. Grade A

Receivers– Anquan Boldin had a great game, he had eight catches for 132 yards. Torrey Smith also had a good game, he had three catches for 84 yards. The tight ends were relatively quiet. Grade B

Offensive line– Early in the game they had trouble run blocking. Throughout the game they failed to block for Flacco, who had to resort to quick drops. They really need to improve if they want Flacco to last throughout the season, he took a beating. Grade D

Defensive line– Texans running back Arian Foster was held to just 49 yards rushing. This whole group continues to play outstanding. The Texans have a great offensive line but they Ravens stopped their running game and still managed four sacks. Rookie Pernell McPhee continues to impress. Grade B+

Linebackers– The Ravens linebackers did a good job stopping the run and holding tight end Owen Daniels to only two catches for only 13 yards. Grade A

Secondary– Even without All-Pro receiver Andre Johnson the Texans have a lethal passing attack. For the most part the Ravens shut them down. They had some miscues but played well overall. Grade B

Special Teams– Billy Cundiff was just about perfect all day. He kicked five field goals and a ton of touch backs. Grade A

Coaching staff– They had plenty of time to prepare for this game with the bye week. Still teams often lay an egg coming off the bye week, the Ravens did not. Grade B+
