Five up, five down at the halfway point of the Ravens season

With a little time to breathe away from the team during the bye week, the Ravens' 2-6 start came into focus a little more. It turns out what was apparent week after week holds true: there are a handful of players on each side of the ball who deserve to be commended for their play in the first eight games, but some that do not. But based on the team's entire body of work, here are five Ravens players whose play in the first half trended up, and five whose stock went in the other direction.
