Fine. Now find a way to plug the holes and stop Houston running back Arian Foster from turning into Barry Sanders on Sunday.
Make some tackles this week, too, instead of that pathetic air-grabbing stuff we saw last Sunday. And get some kind of pass rush on Texans quarterback Matt Schaub for a change.
Is all that too much to ask with Lewis and Webb and Suggs down? Maybe. But the Ravens offense has done its part in the first six games, if you throw out that horror show in the 9-6 win over the Chiefs.

Time for the defense to step up — even without the Big Three.
"This is the game," safety Bernard Pollard said Wednesday. "Injuries are gonna happen. We cannot help who they're gonna happen to. Guys are gonna get dinged up. Guys are gonna get banged up. Guys are gonna be lost for the season.
"It just so happened we lost two great players on Sunday," he continued. "Next man up. It's been like that all year. We've been playing with a lot of [different] guys. I continue to tell people we are jelling as a defense. But I think it's to the point now where we have to take a stand. Two weeks in a row, 200 freaking yards. We gotta ... walk out there with pride. We gotta play [ticked] off. It's a must."
He's dead on about that.
No one in the league feels sorry for the Ravens. They better not feel sorry for themselves, either.
